Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

So happy that 1) the ducks lost, and 2) both these teams are getting beat up in all these OT periods, maybe the east will have a slim chance.

Who is going to be that physical guy? Who is going to be the guy in the locker room that, when things go a little bit awry, that can calm guys down? That's Brenden Morrow.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

You took an extreme example and narrowed it down to him saying that he'd rather have Brendan Morrow over another really skilled player. GJGE.


And his point makes sense, anyway. You need a physical player who eats minutes, especially in the postseason where everyone is injured and tired. Yeah Morrow isn't that good, but there's only a handful of really physical players who are also really skilled at offense.


His point was a team of 20 Gretzkys would be lacking in certain areas, and they would. I highly doubt that would be an optimal team in a physical sport. Do you really think he wouldn't take Crosby over Morrow in a heartbeat if that was a possibility? lol

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

he can't create goals, but on the plus side ... he takes a lot of dumb penalties*!?

no you don't need "minute eaters" in order to win in the playoffs
having guys who can't play hurts you always

* - i mostly know this because they have like a 30-second montage of him idiotically spinning in the box like a complete OCDtard

Pretty sure if you took a list of the 50 worst hockey related posts in the history of SE, Gus would be the author of about 48 of them.

He is right though. 18 Gretzky's and 2 Quick's is the optimal

Yeah, obviously I was defending Morrow. Your reading comprehension isn't good today at all.

But yeah, lol if you really think 20 Gretzkys would be the most optimal team you could assemble.
