Dammit Mike b'y. Spatsoed me. Is that the term we made, I forget?

I'm re-posting this in here just because I feel like it. Sorry everyone to start a new thread with a UG argument, but I can't help myself.

End of story.



Even in that case, the Leafs did nothing to fix their defense and their defense was exposed as weak in the playoffs when they gave up an average of 4 goals a game. They signed Tavares to replace the goals of JVR/Bozak, not add to them. The Leafs haven't proven they can go far in the playoffs. They're still a team of potential.



Leafs didn't do that though.



That's nice but the Leafs still didn't match your definition of speculating on being improved. They signed a very strong player to replace the production of two other players they lost. They didn't add Tavares to JVR, they lost JVR and added Tavares.



Exactly the point, there's a handful of contenders and a bunch of pretenders. Being a contender is an exclusive group of teams, otherwise you may as well say all 31 teams are contenders and throw the word right out the window.

You really do have the reading comprehension of a 5 year old.

How have you missed me repeatedly saying I'm not actually arguing that the Leafs are contenders, and merely had a problem with your argument about a team needing to prove it in the season before you could label them as such if they made good moves in the offseason?

I've repeatedly told you, forget about the Leafs, or I agree they aren't contenders. Yet you keep going back to bashing them because you would rather bash your supposed favorite team than actually try to understand what I'm actually saying.

Everything you've said to me in the last several posts is useless garbage because I'm not arguing about the Leafs being contenders... Get it?

How do I explain this to you well enough for you to understand?

You made an illogical argument when you stated a team couldn't be a contender unless they'd "proven it". I argued that if a team that was fairly good went and made moves that elevated them, you definitely could relabel them a contender without needing to see them play the next season. Nothing specifically about the Leafs at all, only in general.

Once again, I'm annoyed I've wasted so much time just trying to get through that thick head of yours what I'm even arguing with you about.

Lindholm, Jooris, the Goat all should get a fair shot. One of them should turn out decent enough to hold their own playing 8 mins a night

Even if you didn't, he'd start something himself the second he says something.

With every response UG grows stronger. More powerful. Stop this right now. Do not feed the animals.

Like a dog begging for food, if you ignore him long enough he will walk back into his doggy bed and go to sleep. Just ignore.

That sounds like a reasonable way to try to deal with the UG. But we need to talk about the way that you're treating your dog.

Wouldn't mind the Leafs just signing Enstrom or Hamuis.

Enstrom played the right side 90% of his playing time, while being elite at limiting shots...could be a good partner for Gards

The difference is that your dog knows limits. UG doesn't.
