John, you pompous ass (I believe that was the standard reply ) now you went and got Tyler all riled up too and no I would not make any of those trades but if the Pens fizzle again maybe it would be time to rethink the talent mix.
You are right. I did give too much credit to Steckle by calling him a goon and your portrayal of his cheap shot was spoken as true partisan and it made me laugh too.
Hockey is a simple game but good luck often trumps good talent. I may eat crow by the end of the season but today I sure enjoyed chewing on the Caps and their best fan here. We'll have 3 more opportunities to have this conversation, maybe more.
You damn well better make it to BK if that's where the Gathering ends up.
The word for today is specious meaning having the ring of truth but is actually false. Example: JohnL employs a specious argument when he asserts that Blovie is a better hockey player than Cindy because Blovie scores more goals.
