at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
I blame his ex-wife . . . just cuz I can.
Why so angry? Jeez, no need to hate the guy.
Penner was scratched for Silfverberg, and Shocker was scratched for Electro.
And Pens wasn't so much lazy as a huge pile of pancakes requiring a lot of overcoming lack of inertia.
Also, as noted previously, he put us in the Final where we won the Cup so he will be forever intertwined with the Kings history.
you don't want to burn out the player this early in the season.
