What's the point...?

Here's my post for you to re-read and, perhaps in the future, depict a little more accurately...viewtopic.php?f=6&t=60373&start=4675#p2422030

No, you definitely are. You unquestionably know more about hockey than most any poster here. You've probably watched more hockey in your life so far than I will in my entire life.

But -- and this shows how agitated you apparently are that we have a different view on Reimer, because I am siding with Godric (we rarely agree on anything) who's been eminently reasonable in trying to have a normal discussion with you -- you're not Hockey Jesus. That post above is not your first post on the matter, and not where the discussion with Godric and I re: Reimer started. This is how you opened the discussion to which Godric and I disagreed:

That's the first thing you say in your first post about Reimer. You want to retract that, and take a more defensible position, fine. But don't act like either Godric or I depicted you "[in]accurately" when your opening statement is "Reimer sucks."

I have absolutely no idea what the macaroni metaphor above is, but: yikes. You think I am "butchering" numbers (that was a highlight in your series of passive-aggressive jabs two or three pages after I last posted -- and across multiple threads no less!) by citing to Reimer's save% and the Leafs high shots against and weak defensive corps and constantly awful negative Corsi, but that sentence's existence makes me sad and scared and shudddder.

I promise you a full post addressing the rest of your posts last night when I get more time.

tldnr; its pretty silly when some people try to have a discussion and then another person makes a goalpost out of macaroni and moves it around the field but then also makes a bunch of strawmen that he calls macaroni men and then wins the argument against macaroni men by boiling them in the water of their own statistical analysis and specific examples of macaroni man's agility and athleticism while serving them with a side of bottomless tortured metaphor.

Well...doesn't he normally blow? Even the stats probably suggest that, right? 30 games that were statistically good this year (under Randy Carlyle), 30 games that were statistically bad (under Ron Wilson)...do stats actually suggest that he's been good over the last two seasons? Again, this seems like much ado about nothing...

I didn't say anything about you butchering numbers. Nothing has been posted that has begun to refute what I've said...one person posted his save pct., one person posted him making a save. I'm waiting for this construing and contorting of numbers...

Terrific, I hope so.

I don't get it. Unless someone is saying that Riemer is phenomenal (no one has that I can see) are we just arguing whether he's average vs slightly above average?

i think my indictment was more extreme.

but i don't claim to be a reimer expert. it's just that my recollection of seeing him play has left me with a poor impression. a "below average" one. aka "butt".

Now that the Pens advanced, I'm rooting for Game 7s all around. Especially since I won't get to watch the one tonight since it's starting so late.

Part of wants the Caps to lose because watching the Caps lose is fun. But part of me wants them to advance and hopefully face the Pens in the Conference Finals, because beating the Caps is even better.

And don't forget, the Pens beat the Caps in 91, 92, and 09.

Beating BOS in '91 and '92 ECFs was fun...

I love reading the not-so-friendly banter between Caps and Rags fans. It basically is just a pissing match about which team dives more.
