In response to red75's comment:
You think you have hockey knowledge but then you say that off wing means RW. It doesn't, it means the wing the player doesn't play. In Jagr's case off wing means LW. For many wingers playing off wing is next to impossible, as is the case with both Jagr and Iginla. We know our hockey here - including CamOates, who only put Jagr in his avatar after the trade today. Fairweather fans, yourself being a prime example, standout like sore thumbs.
Off wing is an opposite shot than the wing the player plays on. Why does what their shot is and where they play all of a sudden matter?
Recchi played LW here because it made sense and it was a need.
Off wing means you're shooting off the opposite wing as your shot. It's not a set in stone thing.
You're calling me "fairweather"? LOL!
I have a 1000th career point Bourque ticket stub 10 feet from where I type. Wasn't an accident I was there. 50 goals in 42 games in 1994 for Neely. Was there. Jon Morris sat 5 rows behind us. You have no idea who Jon Morris is.
That's one of many names I can drop on here.
I well aware of what an off wing means. Off wing in no way means "Right Wing". You're an idiot.
I didn't say it, you did.
"He prefers the off wing, RW, which is fine and that's probably where he'll end up, but that's not a definite"
You're the idiot, and I called you on it. And your defense was a lie, a hockey fan like myself actually knows what off wing means and would never say what I was able to quote you as saying. And I honestly don't care what ticket stub you have. That has no reflection on your hockey knowledge.
Just go back to you Pats board, please?
