Well said.

Thank you!!

 

All while a certain someone (not you Provost) continues to down vote / twist things / contribute to the issue. Try to settle things down and they just keep going, but others are the issue. Please!

Saying they aren't part of the reason why this thread is being derailed and putting the blame on others is really telling.  They aren't here to discuss much, they're here to stir up drama. There was no need for that comment, but now here we are back in the same loop. I think it's probably best if we just leave them be and have them talk to themselves. They'll stop when they aren't getting their usual attention. 

(Can't they just open their own thread?)

Go count the downvotes and number of posts.

 

I am confident about who would be contributing the most towards the drama by your own metric… and it is the person you are commiserating with about how unfair it is for folks to respond to being misquoted/downvoted/attacked.
 

Go look at right after a mod told folks to settle down things here and who started downvoting and posting crap again…

 

The evidence is there for you if you cared to look beyond your bias.

Makes me wonder why someone would drop this post in here.

Doesn't seem all that civil a thing to do.

Ehh, it's an observation.

 

Maybe an "off-topic" one but it still rings true.

....Can't we all just get along...for once....:P

 

After all, our opinions are like assholes...everyones got one! 

 

Question is, can one quit being an "asshole"??...the answer is clearly NO or you woudn't be human.

 

So lets move er along!

 

Welcome to the team TP, he's an asshole too by the way!

 

The world will be a better place when we finally realize we're all assholes. 

 

....I wonder if asshole is a swear word on CDC? Will find out once I post this...:bigblush:

 

 

 

EDIT/update: ASSHOLE is not a swear word Wahooo!!

First of all...did you read the other couple of posts i made? I was saying that both sides are responsible to settle thing down on here...and while a lot of us have contributed here & there (including me), there is one person who's been the main issue and it's not who you're pointing the finger at, although i'm sure he's man enough to take some responsibility, unlike the person i'm talking about. Not sure how some are missing it / defending it, when most see what's going on. 

 

After my original post i was trying to find some medium ground and say we should all make an effort (including me) to settle things down, so i'll leave it at that.....

Poolman has but 120 NHL games experience.  I’m not sure putting him with Hughes would be the right way to go (Hughes has more NHL experience at this point and he’s just a kid)

Okay.  Counter point: Josh Morrissey

That guy was a 13th overall pick.  

 

I should have added, Poolman's age is a plus in his favor.  A mature *person* is probably has a better chance at being able to adjust.  Look at Jake Virtanen as an example.  Jake needs to grow up some more.

This thread is a mess. Let's wait and see what he does on the ice. I always notice Poolman on the ice for the Jets as, "in the way a lot". That's a good thing so lets have it play out.

Lets go Pool boy!! My new favoUrite underdog to root for, I hope he becomes to the fans a hardworking defensive specialist like a Biega or even better Hamhuis esque

I was just thinking about his name too.

 

He has shown he can go from a Poolboy to a full grown Poolman.

 

I think we can conclude this player knows about developing.

I see Del Zotto got 2 × 2. Really? Poolman is a steal compared to that.

It's probably better to compare Poolman to other defensive-minded RHD, such as Hakanpaa, Savard, Hamonic, etc.  The former is probably the best one to compare, since they're both older players with limited NHL experience.

 

3x1.5M (left some money on the table, according to reports) vs 4x2.5M (subject to a 12 team bidding war, according to reports).
