There are also times where we've tried to go threadless for superstitious, but someone who wants to see his postcount rise will post a thread and screw up the strategy. It's a complicated issue, complicated by the fact that the person who posted this thread thinks Aleksey Morozov is a good NHL player, which makes me question his sanity.
I'm not sure I actually have the power to nullify this as the official thread. That would be like the Supreme Court granting itself a huge power that didn't necessarily have. (Oh, wait. Bad analogy.) Maybe we need to ask RJ who has the power to designate a thread official or not before asking me to do anything.
Being the responsible thread creator that I am I opted not to argue this last night. No one wants an official game thread degenerating to the old Morozov debate
Now afterwards, however, I want to clarify on my view of Morozov. He hasn't been good in the NHL, only for some stretches. I know. He's nothing short of awesome in Russia now though, and has been for two years. So if the price was right I wanted him to get another shot, playing as Malkin's RW. Because of his last two seasons, his potential, the 'new NHL' and because he's russian.
However, I wouldn't exactly sell my mother to get him over.
Now let's drop it, he's not here and never will be again =)
