So, you call Carter's performance overrated even though you admit that he scored some big goals, yet you call Alex Burrows clutch and not overrated for the exact same reasons and you admit that he wasn't a huge producer either? I appreciate your positivity and support for the Canucks but you sound like a major homer when you make comments like that.
Well yeah but that's my opinon, i mean CBC acted like he was getting points every game and like he was Kesler vs Nashville, he was good in playoff for them, but I think they made it see like he was great. And I just said big goals to give him some credit, but really he scored like one big goal, that overtime goal in game two, where as Burrows is more clutch for the reasons I said, he's done it a # of times.
You also have to remember everything else Burrow's brings that Carter doesn't Carter is a better player I'm not saying he isn't but Burrows is better defensively, he can kill penalties better which is huge.
When I say clutch I don't mean he is a huge producer that is PPG every year, I mean he scores BIG goals and Burrows does that, I think you don't understand what I meant by clutch.
Have you never heard of players playing their best hockey in contract years and then settling into mediocrity or not living up to their play or the expectations that they have after they sign their big deal? It happens in all sports. Hopefully it doesn't happen with Garrison but you'd be a fool not to worry about it, especially considering he had by FAR his best year when he was entering his free agent year. It's happened to many before him and he's going to have more pressure to perform than ever before and hopefully he can live up to the contract and the huge expectations.
Yeah true, your right that happen's to people, but I think you have to look at this particular case.
I dont think Garrison will become satisfied or whatever, he's in his hometown like he has always wanted so he will be training and he will come out and try to exceed those expectations and do his best and get better, and like he said himself he thinks he can be better so that's exciting.
It's something you think about forsure but honestly like.. he's 27, I think when that happen's the players are usually like 22-24 or else 28-32 and there usually forwards, if you think about it. Most of the time that happen's the player is forward and then they don't have success.
He may not turn out but I'm just not that worried really, he had been a reliable defensive defensemen before and he just worked on his shot and added that offense so even if he doesn't get as many goals, I think he will still be useful.
