"I could see" Bernier getting 50 points. Right. I also could see that. But right now, Tuomo Ruutu is better than Steve Bernier. I personally think Bernier has been playing well since the break. That's neither here nor there.
I can almost guarantee that I have spent a lot more time studying in the field of linguistics than you have. I understand semantics. You, clearly, do not.
Here's what Mike said before:
"Bernier was a first round pick, and was picked before Parise. He has the ability. If he got legit 2nd line minutes, I can see him hitting 50 points."
Here's what Mike said today:
"Well I think Bernier COULD be a 50 point player."
It's two statements trying to be passed off as the same thing by context, but different in actual meaning. Sure, it's not as completely asinine as Mike trying to argue "on par" is the same as "equal", but it's an aggravating posting style he possesses.
