STUPID IS AS STUPID TWEETS


Check out this utterly imbecilic tweet:

The twit behind this tweet is telling you that Olli Maatta is the SOLE DETERMINING FACTOR behind the Penguins winning or losing.

Forget that it’s Maatta. You’re being told that a second-pair defenseman is the SOLE DETERMINING FACTOR behind the Penguins winning or losing. Not Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. Not goaltending. Not the top-pair defensemen. The other team apparently doesn't figure in. One of the second-pair defenseman determines the result of every game he plays in.

The Maatta/Jack Johnson/Marcus Pettersson debate isn’t this series’ only topic, or even its primary topic. That decision wasn’t the be-all, end-all of Game 1, and it won’t decide who wins the series. It's not like Bobby Orr got scratched to make way for Josef Melichar.
