I want a peek into that alternate reality where they win that game 7 and actually beat boston in 2011.

Does the dude still troll there or does that one extra win silence all the noise?

I'm gonna rip a fattie and see if i can answer that question

That last part just goes to show you how implausible that alternate reality would be.
Show me DonCherry4PM... SHOW US ALL... how to be "pleasant"! :lol:

Hey only i troll dude with gillis crap this openly
:shock:

Trolling is a sin Danny... REPENT!!
I cant help it.

Hes so obsessed after his skulleting that i have no self control. Its like a car wreck..
Y'know, the Dude said during the entire Gillis Era that Evil Eye Bags was ruining the team for the future.

No one would listen to him then... so I can't blame him for now saying 'I told you so' to guys like Blob.

Anyway, back to your uncontrollable sin, we may have to cast a demon out of you my friend.
Gillis destroyed the team to five straight playoff runs.
Ummm... what part of "for the future" did you not understand. 8-)

For all those years the Dude was all over Evil Eye Bags for his horrid drafting.

(as well as pissing away draft picks in some bad trades).

People (such as yourself) were too blinded by the playoff runs to see he was right.

So now he says "told ya so" a lot... sounds fair enough to me. :drink:

Gillis drafted poorly... no doubt about it. But the current manager has also pissed away picks. The double standard is what people LOL at our skulletted friend about.

Or Hamhuis, or Tanev... or Horvat or Lack ... so the manager gets no credit for re-signing guys that are there.. or do they? The twins, Bieksa, Edler etc.
Wait, are you talking about Gillis getting credit for Burke's/nonis's acquisitions?

Or about Benning getting credit for Burke/Nonis acquisitions?

Out of the Gillis acquisitions you named the 4th-best is Eddie Lack, if that doesn't say it all...

Should I stop pointing out Gillis’ major fuck ups (so many) or should I stay the course?

I could have listed the guys he inherited and re-upped to give Elmer that playoff team. I only listed a few of his acquisitions. I was asking about the statute because Topper said that Benning deserved credit for Boston’s recent success after I said he didn’t have much to do with acquiring the team’s core both young and old and that the drafting was garbage when he was there. This is all easily accessible online. Topper said he deserved credit for helping to re-up players to solid contracts and identifying the core( similar to what Gillis did).

The whole thing stemmed from Dick’s erroneous info that Benning was the brains behind Lucic, Kessel, Narchand and Rask. I blew that full of holes and here we are.

At what point is the GM the steward of the team and when do fans stop crying about the previous guy? I don’t remember Nonis taking this much heat for Patrick White or pissing a gaggle of 2nds for guys like Weinrich, Noronen or other guys.

I totally remember the day the dude and blob switched hats. That day when Gillis was fired.

Boy that seems like decades ago now...

About Kenney, though, nah... he's like Fred Flintstone. Peter van Loan looked like a grey-haired Barney Rubble. Used to get a kick out of those two standing together during the Harper years.
