<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OldNYIfan</b></div><div>(1) I don't begin to think that I know everything about the sport, let alone pretend to; I do know more than most about my four favorite teams (my two local teams, the Islanders and Toronto) and limit my comments on other teams to what I think is generally accepted wisdom.

(2) The statement that I argue every single decision and every trade you do is demonstrably and objectively false; I've commented on only two of the 11 teams you've posted so far, and my comment regarding this Dallas team cannot be construed as negative by even the most sensitive flower because all I did was point out the advantage of signing Cirelli for 5 years instead of 4. Over-reaching statements like that make you sound as if you can't stand any differing, let alone opposing, viewpoint, which implies a rather narrow mind.

(3) Opinions of people who have followed the sport for more than 40 years are generally given more weight than the opinions of less experienced fans. That's just natural, because the <em>a priori</em> expectation is that the voice of experience is more likely to be right than the voice of inexperience. The principle is true not just in hockey fandom but life at large, so you had better get used to it. Your only defense is to become knowledgeable yourself, which can only be achieved with an open mind. And here's something that may not have occurred to you: the one thing that all my experience has taught me is that I can be wrong, and others can be right, about anything.</div></div>

i told you that you were right about the cirelli signing but i think your a bit too old and that the game has changed
