Were you dropped on your head when you were a child?
Based on your posts, it sounds like you were the one dropped on your head. I agree with your post, duke66. People on this board are just insatiable. Just like they were about MAF earlier in the year. Now they wanna get on Gino cause, God forbid, the guy was doing all he can with a terrible flu and 2 injured linemates.
I guess that is because I can take off the Black and Gold glasses and see what is going to happen. Take them off...do a little research...and understand the salary cap.
Well I guess I am every bit of a Malkin supporter as you are a Crosby supporter. You think Crosby is the best, I think Malkin is the best. We will leave it at that.
I think Malkin is the 3rd best player in the NHL. Crosby then AO then Malkin. Do I hate Malkin...No, absolutely not. This team is not going to be built around him...people need to accept that.
The hell it's not going to built around him. This team is already built down the middle with him, staal, fleury, and crosby. If this team is built around one sole player then they will not be going that far, because I've never seen one player win the Stanley Cup by himself.
Bingo. And anyone who thinks Malkin isn't a big part of the "core", I feel sorry for your life. He's every bit as important as Crosby, Fleury, etc... for the long term success of this team. And how bout instead of me taking off my "black and gold glasses" Kovy27, you take off your Crosby blinders and understand that the Pittsburgh Penguins are not a one man team. There is more to this team than just 87.
