What? I took the position that no one knows what the facts are, and our personal bias will in the meantime fill in the blanks as to what we 'think' happened. That is called having an open mind before the actual trial starts where they present the facts.
It seems that you have already assumed Kane is guilty, and that anything anyone says contrary is messed up to you. That, my friend is your bias, and exactly what I am referring to.
Go back and look through what I said.
Did I state my position, or post what facts have came through?
I didn't say a damn thing for you to suggest that my bias' has filled in any blanks as to my position on the subject, and furthermore, you calling me out on an opinion(that I never took) after using your own bias is kind of insane.
And I asked you a question, didn't question your motives, or your take on the case, so I'd appreciate you not assigning an opinion to me about something so sickening as if it were a trivial matter.
I didn't state my opinion for the reason that this isn't something to take lightly, or speculate about especially given the fact that has come out.
If they're looking for him to be the 6/7th guy, then I think this is a good depth move, but if they expect him to play any amount of time in the defensive zone they're going to be thoroughly disappointed.
I knew he wasn't a defensive stalwart when we acquired him, but I never expected he'd be as bad as he was in his own end. For the amount of people who rag on our own home grown guys, he was given a surprisingly long leash. He did score some timely goals, which Gave him a bit of leeway in my eyes, but I thought he was really, really bad.
Is it just me, or has smith been one of our better playoff performers the last two years?
Against Boston I was confident every time he was on the ice, and he had a fairly mistake free series vs Tampa, plus he seemed to be buzzing all over the ice.
He has impressed me in the playoffs, much more so then in the regular season.
No ones going to argue that he doesn't make some bone headed mistakes that make me question his intelligence, but when the speed is ramped up, especially in the playoffs, he seems to thrive. Which is what excites me about him under Blashill, and why I would advocate keeping him around, if even for just his potential.
The speed we have coming up through the system could lend itself well to a blue line with smith on it, assuming he can limit his gaffes.
