Jibblescribbits: Media Darling

Ok maybe not. But the guys over at Cycle like the Sedins asked me to make an argument for Joe Sakic as the center of the decade over Joe Thornton. Feel free to go over there and tell me how right I am.

  1. Couldn't have put it better myself, JS. I should be making a return to my blog soon after a long absence. I've loved the recent posts though, keep up the good work as always.

  3. Sorry about that, tried a little HTML and failed.

    "Instead of listing his all-star appearances, I'll just list the years he didn't go: '03, '08, '09." -That's great stuff right there Jibble. And totally with you on your assessment. I like Joe Thornton as much as the next guy. He's a total beast and one of the better centers of the decade, but he has a ton of work to get up to Sakic status.

  5. @ unlearn:

    It was a "Center of the decade" competition. He only had one in the 2000's.

  6. 1) When Thornton carries his team in the post season THEN we'll take him seriously as a leader. Until then he's a very nice/talented player who doesn't have that intangible that Sakic, Yzerman, Messier, Trottier, etc, possess/possessed
