Is comparing ppg to a player’s old team and ppg with his new team really the best way to evaluate a trade? Asking for a friend
Ask not what Crosby can do for you. Ask what you can do for Crosby.

I said that I was going to wait 10 games to before judging Zucker as a Pen. It's been 10 games.

Should I not have don't it just because the Pens are 3-6-1 since the got Zucker?

Should I not have done it just because Crosby, who is stuck with Zucker 90% of his time, can't score in a whorehouse with a fist full of $100s?

Should I have waited until it looked better for Zucker so everyone that was happy about the trade can skip questioning themselves?

Just a side note, the Wild are 6-3-1 since Guerin won that trai... er, I mean since the Pens got the great Zucker from them.

You were going to find a way to complain about this regardless, so I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish.

So Galchenyuk is better than Zucker, is that what you're implying?

5 goals in 10 games. Seems fine to me.

The Wilds record is irrelevant to Zucker as a Pen

I guess I just don't know what Jim is trying to "prove" or even really insinuate...Zucker has been a little better than my expectations for him, even with the team struggling right now...

I also don't really judge trades after a week and a half or whatever it's been...

You people make me lol.

I didn't really want to evaluate the trade at day one (beyond disappointment), or after the first game, because it is too knee-jerk. I wanted to wait and gave it 10 games; time and games to let things shake out.

Why were none of you whining at people evaluating the trade the day it happened, or since? "Boo hoo hoo, What are you trying to prove? I gave my 2 cents the second the trade happened, why would you wait to see how it looks after 10 games? That just doesn't make sense. It's either right away, of you give it 4 seasons before evaluating, no in between!!! Boo hoo hoo."

That's good stuff.

The Pens are not playing well so everyone is all salty. HA!

Have you ever considered the possibility that no one is whining or crying...? Maybe they want to have a conversation, but you're the only one in hysterics...

You're asking people to recite their thoughts, when there's really about only two or three pages in this very thread that have thoughts...this isn't like, "how did you feel when they traded Doug Bodger away" stuff...this just happened, it's all written here...that's why I don't get where you're coming from...

Let me be very clear: What is your point?

No, it isn't.
That's legitimately a crazy opinion to have. As if the Wild's only move during this time was trading Zucker for Galchenyuk...

I posted my thoughts, after waiting 10 games, as I said I was going to.

Let me be very clear: That's the point. :roll:

I didn't ask anyone to recite anything. I posted my thoughts. I don't understand the confusion.

People's heads are going to explode when I do the same for the Kahun trade.

Ok that's fine then. I thought you had a point...I thought you were taking an angle on this in some regard...I am no longer confused (other than by the Wild's record post-trade deadline or whatever, but we can let that slide as a mistake)...

I thought that lgp was the site with the stupid people.

If you want to counter/comment on anything specific that I said in the 10 game post, feel free. Otherwise you can cough until the cows come home and it doesn't mean a thing.

Jim wants to call people stupid but based opinion of a new player on a 10 game sample size.
