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

slappybrown wrote: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."

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.

slappybrown wrote: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.!

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