fair enough.

Certainly some proponents of *** marriage are so blinded by their philosophies too, right? And certainly some of the pro-Huddler slappies are too, right?

No. You clearly don't understand the analogy. A proponent of *** marriage is not blinded by an ulterior belief system, i.e. Christianity. Thats the point. Arguing with someone who already has their mind made up about soft, skilled Euros without from the beginning is akin to arguing about same-sex marriage with a Christian conservative because they've never been open to the alternative. Understand, now?

And a pro-Hudler "slappy"? Like me? The one has has made trade proposals including Jiri Hudler? The one who said Jiri Hudler won't be a Wing if he wants more than 2.5M? Yeah, I'm so blinded. rolleyes.gif If anything I'm one of the few on this board who has been able to strike a balance in the Hudler debate.

More like, I dont see the point of dropping a 57 point guy who might be willing to take 2.5M or slightly less to stay here when 2.5M doesn't even get you Sami Pahlsson and his 20 points. And I like Sami Pahlsson, too.

If the Wings somehow managed to flip Jiri Hudler for Curtis Clencross or Rene Bourque, I'd be ecstatic. But until that happens, I'll stick with Hudler + Leino + Grinder, thanks.

Okay, you're saying that people with strong, deeply held oppinions shouldn't be allowed in discussions? Why?

If arguing about same-sex marriage with a Christian conservative is no good, then arguing same sex marriage with those who are strongly in favor of same sex marriage must also be no good....which leaves the rest of the population, those who just don't give a s*** either way, to be the only ones to discuss the matter, which they won't, because hey, American Idol is coming up next. Maybe the Hudler debate should be left to people who don't even watch hockey, just to make sure no bias creeps in...

No. This isn't about being against one thing or another. This about being blinded by your philosophy that you can't ignore it enough to open up your eyes to the other aspects of the debate.

He was the one player we thought was a top player. I don’t know that he’s a `mail carrier’ type guy, but he’s still a top player”.

Dean Lombardi, smart man.

I noticed that, too. I think its pretty clear at this point that Hossa wants no part of being the go-to guy. First Malkin and Crosby. Then Hank and Datsyuk. Now Kane and Toews. Looks like Hossa's biggest fear is being the guy that the spotlight shines on. Pretty much explains why the guy folded in the Finals when all eyes were on him.

Thats huge. If thats the kind of pussyfooting he did with Shero, then I can see why he left the Pens on such bad terms. Sounds like DL couldn't get a straight answer out of Hossa no matter what he did.

Be a friggin man, Hossa. If you dont want to have anything to do with a team, tell them you aren't available. No need for them to waste their time.

In Topic: would you like to see this roster?

Nope. Antropov and Bertuzzi? Those are the kind of players we shed before winning the cup. Absolutely no need for that crap.

Wouldn't mind McCormick at that price though, or Gauthier, but not at 2M.
