Wilderness Walk: The Great GDMS Debate Edition

The hype train cometh.

There isn't too much to really talk about at this point other than your average "Grit Don't Mean Shit" debates.

So let's have a "Grit Don't Mean Shit" debate.

I'll leave most of the talking and name calling to you, Wilderness, but what I do want to point out is that grit doesn't equate to goonery. Sure, fighting is gritty, but it's not what defines grit. Grit is the ability to wear out other teams rather than trying outgun them. Grit is the ability to punish someone with their head down and make them think about things before they cross the blue line again (if they get up). Grit is not shit. Stance, taken.

There's my take, but where's yours? (Hint: down there)

Let's Walk.

I don't see what all the hate is for on this deal. The guy can pick up 50 points on the BJs (which is equivalent to 60 in my opinion), he's elite defensively, he can work the PP, he can work the PK, he's stellar on the draws, physical, GRITTY, etc... One of the best two-way forward-grinders to come to his own in recent years.
