Its starting to get a bit off-topic here. I'm not trying to compare Clarkson and Palms. I just did so the last post to show that scoring goals and playing with a physical presence (something Palms has the capabilities of doing, like a Clarkson) can make you a valuable NHL player (which all stemmed from someone saying Palms isnt an nhl player, to which I disagreed).
Palmieri really doesn't do either well enough to be an important NHL player it looks like. I would think his likely career paths at this point are ok role player at NHL level down to is never a real NHL contributor.
I haven't seen anything physically that makes me think Palmieri becomes a really good NHL player and I've seen reasons to think that he won't be an effective NHL player at all. Best case scenario for him is he starts to play much harder, much more physical, and he can really start contributing as a 2nd/3rd line guy who can chip in a few goals. I really question his ability to work hard over multiple games though.
Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
