Gusev is not what the doctor ordered, at all. Soft as baby poop, no hands, and even less heart.

No hands...? Stop with that.

We can't claim Gusev, we don't have the cap space...probably...

Have you watched him this year? Maybe it has a lot to do with the no heart bit, but yeah, no hands.

Unrelated to the above, but it's weird to me that elbowing a dude in the face and tossing someone's helmet back at their chest are punished equally by DoPS.

Here's a good opportunity to point out my bad take... I'll wait.

1/3 of his points on the PP. 15 goals per 82 game rate. Gets bumped off of puck if someone in the parking lot sneezes. I don't know how to comment on no heart without just watching him. So, yeah, not what the doctor ordered, soft as baby poop, no hands, and even less heart.

But none of that has anything to do with his hands. Which is where we have been collectively rolling our eyes.

I had originally commented on more than just hands, but 15 goals/82 overall, and only 2 in 20 this year... that says a lot about "hands".

I'll take a collective eye roll though.

You keep changing the game, we were talking hands...now you're talking about goal scoring per whatever...still, no one is talking about that...

You mentioned that one-third of points are on the PP, but about 40% of Crosby's are...so I don't know where we're going here...it's just a deeper hole, in what was a casual conversation...just say, "Gusev's got some talent, but for his contract, he really doesn't deliver, he's soft, he's this..." but instead you brought up a bunch of other stuff and got mad at us for it...

I don't really get this character.

He's in the league because he has hands, and almost nothing else...

But your characterization was "no hands", so...

Yeah, 15 goals a season does not equate to having hands.

Your video is cute. You could put together a video to make basically anyone look like they have hands; Jankowski, Rodrigues, etc. Doesn't mean they do. Watching 30ish Devil's games over the last year tells me that he doesn't have hands. He was brought in because he was supposed top have hands, he had "KHL" hands... but it didn't translate.

And who was talking about just his hands when I brought up a bunch of other stuff? I was the third post with his name in it when I brought up the other stuff, and I brought was also the one that brought up hands. So how were you talking about his hands and then I brought up other stuff? I'll wait...

Pavel barber has 0 goals in 0 games so by that logic he has no hands.

Jim, you do realize "hands" and "goal scoring" are different things, yes?

You're throwing the term "logic" around pretty loosely..

I could not do this for Jankowski or Rodrigues. I actually looked into it to make sure I wasn't confirmation biasing a well known and obvious trait of Gusev's against me...and I wasn't. But, by all means, please give me several minutes of Jankowski deking around NHL players in recent games, I'll wait...

Goals != hands, of course.

So, you standby "no hands", as if I don't watch Devils games too, and haven't seen him in the KHL...even though he's literally beating NHL players, to the point that they're actually falling down...and this isn't a career retrospective, this is like his last 10 games or something...

So, however you want to spin it, people who watch and know hockey (too?) took exception to the "no hands" part, you started going in other directions thereafter talking about goals per whatever gibberish, even though we're still just talking about hands...no one said shot, or goal-scorer, or finishing ability or anything...just hands.

Unexpectedly, because I'm 100% positive that I'm correct, I take the time to provide minutes of video from his last handful of games just going around NHL players, playing with clowns like Zacha and whoever...and you still standby your - now obvious to everyone - incorrect opinion...

You keep waiting, we're all done here...

You could probably make a "Mark Jankowski squinting for 10 hours" video
