Puck Stops Here Strikes Out Again

05/19/2010 at 10:56pm EDT

So PSH, who just claimed he could be better than half the GM’s in the league (see his last comment in this post, it is amazing) completely made up an article again. This time, however, he got caught red handed.

Remember the little article PSH wrote where he decided that since a kid left his junior team to play in the World Championship, he clearly was going to play in the KHL and was a sign of the downfall of the NHL?. Here’s a taste of the idiocy.

NHL Loses a Prospect

Over the last few years, the Russian hockey system has had top talent in Alexander Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin and others depart for the NHL. Kirill Kabanov choosing Russia over the NHL might signify the end of that trend.

And from the comments:

It is clear that Kirill Kabanov is going to be in the KHL in the short term. he is abandoning North America in the playoffs to play for Belarus. It is a leaky pipeline. Players that do that rarely come back. It is a safe assumption that he is KHL property for the next few years and likely his whole career.

This was even though the entire comment section was full of articles showing that Kirill actually left to play in the worlds because he was asked to by his team, as was getting no ice time for the Junior team, in addition to the fact that there was not a single mention of the KHL in any article or from any quote.

So today, I got a laugh when I saw this fun quote:

“I’ll never come back to Russia [to play hockey]. I’m trying to show I can play in the NHL. It doesn’t matter what the [draft] number is. If a team picks me, I’ll sign the contract right away.” - Kirill Kabanov

This is a perfect example of everything wrong with PSH. He straight up made up a story out of nothing but an uneducated guess and refused to admit he was wrong or even that his story had a few holes in it. It’s a shame he shares the name “blogger,” especially on an incredible site as this one.
