No Cranky... I was here, posted twice. I was just not hovering over the keyboard because I got nothing better to do, sorry. I will try to be more active in the future. Actually, I really won't.
Fleury is playing well so I have nothing negative to say. I believe it was the Caps game I posted specifically that Fleury had a good game.
Orpik didn't screw the pooch tonight so I had nothing negative to say.
Malkin actually looked like he was trying so I had nothing negative to say about his play, but I did comment on the IDIOT continuing to tuck his jersey even after he got a penalty for it. The Leafs game though, I posted specifically stating Malkin had a good game.
See, unlike apologists who constantly sing a players praises no matter how good or bad they play, or a "hater" who constantly rags on a player no matter how good or bad they play... some of us actually call them like we see them. That means that sometimes they play well, sometimes the play bad. I happen to think that the players are paid to play well, so it is actually EXPECTED that they play well and you do not praise someone for meeting expectations. However, you do criticize when they fail to meet expectations and praise when they exceed expectations.
I do not see why so many people have a problem with someone saying that so-n-so is playing like poo when they are playing like poo.
Better luck next time.
