[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Souray vs Wiz : And I provided the history as to where both players were at in progression before the age of 30. Wiz accomplished more in the midst of his prime, Souray accomplished his 50 point plus seasons at the end of his prime. Souray will never approach those numbers ever, ever again. There is every indication that Wiz will get to Souray's best years before he is 30 years old. Shup you have provided me no facts that can say Souray is a better player because James is easily the better player when they both were in their late 20s.

I already stated that Wiz currently is the better player. I am not debating this at all. I think you are missing my pt or ignoring it. Here it is:
- Souray if healthy will out pt Wiz this year.
- Souray if healthy will get 40pts this year.
And I can post Souray's totals for his career but will simply state that when Souray plays a healthy season he is a lock for 35+ pts. I don't care if he played in the minors b/c of a feud with the Oilers. He is getting prime minutes this year and has already notched 2 PP pts in two games. And I think if you take Sourays all star year it is very comparible to any top producing dman of the last 20 yrs.
Heck here is some evidence on history:
03-04 63 games 15g/20a 35 pts
05-06 75 games 12g/27a 39 pts
06-07 81 games 26g/38a 64 pts(Wiz will never top this total or make an allstar team).
08-09 81 games 23g/30a 53 pts.(Wiz will never reach 20 goal mark).
In fact the mighty Z has never come close to Sourays best year. I think Sourays totals make the history lesson a moot pt.
And again, if you wanna play along San without jumping outside the topic I would love to have you over. Now go get your ghetto-blaster and crank some Shoop!
