Boston has 6 cups and Pittsburgh has 5.  I suppose you mean recently.

Yeah, Crosby was the focal point of the discussion, so post-Crosby Penguins

Sorry about that.  Was not up on all that discussion.  Carry on.

This is Paul Hamilton. This piece reads well even if I disagree with some of his assessments. The article is about evaluating young players and the patient approach Botterill has taken.

Doesn’t this article belong in the prospects thread?

Vegas does have a good beat reporter. 

 

So maybe Harrington can learn something from him.


He barely touched him!

 

I have no problems w/ Harrington btw.  

 

But his trip caused a very awkward fall along the boards for Jack.  I'm not as upset about the hit itself (well, okay, I am) but I'm also very upset that no penalty was called on the play when it was clear that Jack went down because a stick got jammed into his skates..

I read the article and concur that it is well written and seems unbiased.

 

I have never heard PH say anything but a player gets better and it's best to be in the AHL before coming to the NHL. He has been a staunch advocated of *riding the bus and smelling the diesel exhaust* for as long as I can remember.  It's not surprising that JB and PH have the same philosophy about player development,  one would be hard pressed to find someone working in hockey that doesn't.

That's the hardest Paul has ever worked on a column.

Most of his articles on WGR read as if he's putting to paper a legible description of his notes from the day. He was always a beat reporter to me, he spent some time and put together as nice read.  I like the positive in this.

I see the bar has been set high for professional journalists. I'll make sure to post the same when you critique an athlete
