Kukla's Korner Hockey

Yesterday I posted a blog titled Ranking The Starting Goalies where I listed the 8 starting goalies left in the playoffs beginning with, in my opinion, the best goalie.
KK members then followed suit by leaving their rankings in the comment section and all was good.
This morning I woke up to this email...
ha ha Paul .... were ya drinkin when you ranked the goalies ?? That was actually funny .... Guess that's why you post other peoples thoughts and don't actually write much ..... FYI ... Lundquist is a fraud. Quick is the man to have .... I have been playing the game at various levels for years, and know what is happening on the ice ....
Ah, the old I played the game ploy and what's with all the dots and the double question mark?
Criticizing an opinion is one thing as long as you back it up, but calling people out by using the 'I played the game card' as the reason tells me that person is wearing blinders and knows all.
If I considered myself as knowing everything about the game, I'd be running a site like nhlpredictions.com but I don't, so I leave it up to the experts to do so.
Now I know who this person is and would have preferred he left a comment in the post so all could see it and discuss if need be, but that was his decision, not mine.
In case you are wondering, this person did not strike a nerve with me but I wanted to bring some attention to it and who knows, maybe you will be reading his response in a blog at another site in the near future.
One more thing, it is Lundqvist, not Lundquist Mr. I play the game guy.
