WARNING: FOUL LANGUAGE
More often than not, opinions are like assholes, full of shit.
That’s certainly the case when it comes to the criticism of Jason Spezza.
He’s not the greatest hockey player in the world, get over it, but he is among the best, and the no mind mouth breathing idiots who boo him, and criticize his play, ad nauseum, really need to shut their mouths.
Yeah, I’m being harsh, because these dumb-asses deserve it. They’re idiots, and if you’re reading this thinking “hey, I boo Spezza”…then you’re an idiot.
Sorry if I’ve offended you, but your idiocy and abject lack of hockey knowledge is putting my team at risk, so get bent.
I’m not writing this to jump to Spezza’s defense, the kid has room for improvement, and he knows it, but I’m sick and tired of mindless stooges harping on about Spezza without so much as an ounce of perspective.
Compare Spezza around the league, and you will quickly discover he is top 10 in his position. Add to this his age, his desire to learn and improve his game, and you have yourself a player 20 teams would kill for. But here in Ottawa, the vocal minority feel the need to wax moronic about his deficiencies. Where’s Crosby? Where’s Malkin? Where’s Sedin? Where’s Datsyuk? Where’s Backstrom? They’re all watching, just like Spezza. But somehow we’re supposed to believe Spezza was at fault for the Sens being out in the first round?
Jason, you’re a brilliant offensive player, and you know you’re needing to improve on your defense and take more shots. I have absolutely no doubt in your ability to improve as a player.
As for the mouth breathing morons calling for you to be traded, or pinning the play-off exit on you, well I think you know what I, and many others think of them, too.
You have my complete support, I for one want you here in Ottawa, and know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, you make this team better for your being here.
Here’s to cheering you, in a Sens sweater, for years to come.
