    Kind of like when I see a new thread on the main board and then I read it.

    I do believe Barney from the Simpsons said it best:
    "Don't cry for me, I'm already dead."

If you aren't going to hold both to the same standard then it becomes hypocrisy and/or favoritism.
    I hadn't even expressed an opinion about Doughty at the time I had responded to that post.

    It is not hypocrisy because the issue isn't who said what when, its who always competes and who doesn't. I am just as upset with Doughty's comments as Kopitar's, but there is no reason to question whether Doughty's beliefs affected his effort while there is every reason to question whether Kopitar's affected his, because Doughty played very well and Kopitar didn't.

    You understand that difference, right? Carter and Quick where the only "leaders" in that dais who have actually acted like leaders.

    Says who? Doughty didn't play to his potential last year either. Salty Dog nailed you on this one.
