Thank you, I tried to explain this about 5 posts before this. He has had some very short spot duty with the Sedins this year but mostly has played with Kesler and Raymond who have also had good years coincidentally. Good shot, Big body, Feisty when he has to be...all things I think we would take back in a heartbeat including his 20+ goals !
it's cognitive dissonance. Posters like Crymson try to find excuses on why something isn't going the Wings' way to make themselves feel better and to make the wings look always in the right.. They make up circumstances that would seemingly be beyond the Wings organization control(ie playing with the Sedin twins) as a scapegoat. What's even sadder is they usually don't even come out and admit when they're wrong. Whatever, truth is, he simply turned out to be a damn clutch player and the wings sure as hell are not the same without him. I will be the first to admit that I grossly underestimated his importance.
I didn't "dig through" anything. I didn't get on this board until after the game. I responded to posts as I read them AFTER THE GAME. I even gave kudos to some posters on here as I read along, but you seem to have missed those.
For future reference? I'm not online during play. It's either after periods, or after the game.
Fair enough, but you have to understand frustration builds when you watch your team go down 2-0 in the first while fighting for a playoff spot. Those type of games against us usually don't end well.
Is it really necessary to avoid admitting even in the least that you're a defensive pessimist who will turn on the team very quickly if they're not winning?
Hey, moron, try actually reading the person he was quoting.....you'd see it wasn't even me. In fact, try to find anywhere in this thread of me "turning against the team", except laughing at Filppula after the giveaway.
Yeah, I'm sorry but you FAIL. Please go back to the cave you crawled out of and stay there.
