What am I going to come back with after you start talking grandma's?

Maybe I should post this Normal Mailer quote in the Luongo discussion thread for you:


Why come back? It was an inoffensive point elvis.
Obsession is an interesting comeback though - there are thousands of people who surf these threads - wouldn't it be obsessive to keep attempting to steer thread after thread and endless posters in a direction you deem acceptable?

This thread is distinctly different than the negative one you referred the OP to. The OP also has yet to make 1000 posts here, which would suggest they aren't a veteran like yourself.

Perhaps amongst all your steering, intervening and advising you could mix in a little more tolerance.

I haven't had any problems with him so far. That being said, i wasn't expecting Florida-esque goals from him. Different division. Different expectations.

After being perforated multiple times so far, i'd say the Panthers miss him.

No doubt - things have been a little frantic around him so far here, but I've liked his defensive zone coverage, his efficiency on the boards behind his own net, and he seems to have a effective, active stick (somewhat like Willie Mitchell's)... If what we've seen so far is what we get, I have no problem whatsoever with him - even his shot the past few games has been a little sharper - a post and a goal - what more do people expect?

Garrison is already a good fit. He is tops in team +/-, he is moving the puck fairly well (there's still some getting used to the system going on), and he just got his first goal. I see him becoming a great fit sometime later this month.
