Marc Crawford: The difference is: one guy has a ton of character, the other guy has no character [exaggerated hand motions]. One guy scores 30 goals and doesn’t help his team and the other guy scores 25 goals, but helps [his team] in every single way. So yeah, I would sign him, but he’s going to be banished to a place like Columbus or something, and that’s what those guys do, head to the island of misfit toys [evil laugh].
This is something that rankled at the time. And Scott Arniel, you may think this is 'piling on', but this fan thinks you are a big part of that perception, as you were arrogant and did nothing to show the rest of the NHL that you belonged. And I hold you responsible for it. You too Scott Howson. So I am a season ticket holder at the land of misfit toys. Wiz? Jack? Are you listening? This makes me angry (Grandma, you cannot fathom how hard it is to make this short statement palatable for you to read). Hey Dubinsky! Yeah you! I'm talkin' to you! This guy is talking about you now. What are you gonna do about it? All I can do is put my money down, and come cheer hard. All I am asking is that you come out and earn my cheers. Hey Umby, Toots! They are calling you misfit toys! There is only one way to change that, and its on the ice boys. If you don't think there is a lot riding on this season, please think again. Please, please, please be angry about this, and give me a chance to throw this in their face at the end of the 2012-13 season. Bonus thought: Wiz, Jack, you could also invite Crawford to lace 'em up and show you how he treats misfit toys.
I'll wear this, because although its not fair, or nice, it comes with the turf. We are our record, 30 of 30. Only you players can change that. Please make it so.
Affectionately, a fan.
