    What do you know? You're definitely not in the top 98%.

    It's not an observation in line with reality

    The reason many fans love certain players is BECAUSE they help the team win. I guess they never noticed that the ones labeled "heros" are always the best players on the team and the one's labeled "scapegoats" are the worst guys on the team. It's because fan opinion is usually based on the quality of the players.

    However what's funny is the inverse of this silly accusation is actually true. There's some posters on here who hate certain players so much that they'd be OK with hurting the team so long as it meant those players were gone. That's why some people desperately want Voracek, Ghost, and a few others gone, without even considering what we'd get back in a trade.

    If you don’t think there are a large # of fans who prioritize their individual heroes over the team, you’re being naive.

    We know. You championing stewart over the success of the team is a perfect example.

    Oh yeah more arguing , good god . Have a discussion guys , there are difference of opinions and that's what makes for good debate . This is what he is talking about and it happens on so many threads . Nobody's word is gospel and it's okay to have a different opinion even if you disagree strongly , just state why you disagree and move on .

    Nobodys saying you cant disagree about opinions. Were saying you cant call facts non facts.

    If you think there are a large # of fans who prioritize their individual heroes over the team, you're being overdramatic in a sad attempt to troll the board

    The exist I'm sure, but few and far between. We all cheered when Hagg scored last night

    Hagg scoring is extra delightful because it is so very rare. That he put one in on a Holtby who looked like he might Prime Lundqvist us all night is even better.

    I've long pumped Holtby in with Crawford as the best mediocre goalies in the league. At the very least, the best mediocre goalies in their conferences

    I’d say we could talk about the intricacies of Ginning’s game, but we can’t. Never have. Because his staunchest defenders don’t watch him. So, they turn to general hollow remarks and insults and appeals to authority. It’s not conversation. It’s an exercise in contrarianism.

    I guess some people care more about being contrarians and rooting for the worst players to see the team fail than actually wanting to win. Did I do this right?

    He adds the word “WOOOO” after every Hayes post-goal insult.

    Calling something a "fact" doesn't make it so. Fake news.
