[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Thank god we won the cup: Colborne lighting up AHL : You're the 1 thanking God in regards to a Colborne trade and we're the tards? When's the last time a Gretzky, Orr, Hall, or Seguin plied their trade in the AHL? Are you saying Colborne's numbers are deserving the same respect as those being put up by Yakupov at the moment? Chudinov won D of the week in the KHL. Should I thank God we didn't trade him because he's going to b so great too? I mean the KHL is a step above the AHL? Fill this tard in would you?

1st there is no god in the clouds that listens to you and occasionally grants you wishes and hates homosexuals, atheists, and peoples who work on sunday. That was what's called a "figure of speech" (write that down in case you didn't know). 2nd, we're not talking about someone with the skill of the great players in the league, i never said that. What I did say is that there are plenty players who are amazing in juniors, and never make it in the NHL (like Zach Hammil), just like the AHL . Those points do not directly correlate to the NHL. Why? because a lot of guys that do well in juniors don't have the other things (size/speed) that allow that allow them to compete at an NHL level.
Colborne clearly isn't on the level of the young stars like Seguin/RNH/Mr. Yokopov, but he does have those physical qualities that scouts know improve his chances of succes in the NHL (ie, his 6'5 210 frame). If we hadn't won the stanley cup, you better believe that we would have looked at that trade as a disaster. PC would be taking a lot of heat over giving up a blue chip asset for next to nothing (as kaberle turned out to be... a nothing). the :chara window" would be closing, same with the thomas window.
So, we gave up a heck of a lot for a guy that contributed next to nothing to the stanley cup run. Kaberle could have blown out a knee after his 1st game and nothign would have happened to the Bruins cup chances. So we look at that trade and pretend it was a win only because we won the stanley cup? Not at all, Niether Colborne or Kaberle or the 1st round pick we gave up had anything to do with why we won the cup; therefore, it should be judged as a a seperate issue. We would have given up two of our best assets for nothing except a failed cup run. Last time I checked, no one in boston pats themselves on the back for failed runs, especially bruins fans.
The fact is, it was a terrible trade, and only the jubilation we feel from a stanley cup win is preventing us from acknowledging it a.k.a its blinding us.
and yes, youu're being a tard; a straw-man queen and a master of logical fallacies. snap out of it.
