lol relax it was joke albeit a poor one. I have never seen the word aplomb used in a scouting report before. I suppose when scouts write hundreds of reports they need to crack open the thesaurus to avoid repetition.

 

I agree the Internet has redefined the English language but words like aplomb are not a part of 1970's lexicon nevermind 21st century. My AP English teacher -best teacher I ever had and he taught for 50 years- once advised to never write using words that you wouldn't use in everyday conversation and used "thus" as an example. When was the last time you used the word aplomb in a conversation?

 

I use it quite often.. but in my case, it's unfair... as it's a french word ; )

It's better to wait this out and not participate.   Take advantage of teams that will shed contracts when camp starts and there are less deals to be made.

 

I often read that ... but i can't remember when someone really take that advantage. I can't remember the last time a trade was made before camp starts because of that situation... 

But  i'm sure i'm wrong there...

Can't take you seriously but hey, I know you don't care.   Lots of people use the word.  I have seen it used and have used in myriad situations. The damn sentence has a fog index of 2.  I guess we are now in a world that has been taken over by slang, abbreviations, emoticons and emojis. So sad.

 

Oh Dew, my Dear Dew... I feel you. It turns to be a crime to use real word these days... (ok my broken english doesn't allow me to be really good at it.. but you know what i mean)

Yup, and I hope Shero sticks to his word that he won't be diving in to UFA this year.

 

He didn't say that... 

just that he will not build the team via the UFA... 

But one or two players at a fair price would be a good idea...
