NY Post Publishes Brain Dead Ilya Sorkin Post That Totally Contradicts Itself
Times are tough right now in the sports industry. Companies are failing and are doing anything they can to churn a profit. Go up and down the list of all the notable sports media companies out there. They’re all firing people. The truth of the matter is, maybe the quality of their product just sucks. Maybe that’s why they’re failing. The NY Post is one of many news outlets that instills a paywall. It turns out the only thing behind their paywall is complete garbage content.
These cookie cutter news outlets will continue to fail and this is just another example of why. Ethan Sears at the post recently wrote a column titled: Islanders must lock up Ilya Sorokin — even as NHL playoffs show you don’t need a top goalie.
Do we get how insane that is?
Does this dope understand that he found a way to contradict himself in the title?
A: Nobody should have an issue with a writer arguing that the Islanders should extend Ilya Sorkin. It’s a fair opinion to have and Sorokin has proved he’s one of the best netminders in the league.
What everyone should have a problem with is the fact that he literally made the argument as to why the Islanders shouldn’t pay Sorokin. The only high paid goalie remaining in the playoffs is Sergei Bobrovsky who has been terrible for the last two years and Florida wouldn’t have even made the playoffs if Pittsburgh just made one less awful trade.
B: Stop paying goalies. They are the running back of the NFL and bullpen pitcher of baseball. Figure it out or suffer the consequences later. Thanks to Bruce Cassidy, the VGK are in the Conference Finals after using FIVE goalies on the season. Vegas has instead poured ample resources into the best blue line in the NHL. That’s why they’re still here.
C: The Islanders should trade Sorokin. I’m not really sure how it’s arguable. Well, it is arguable but your reason shouldn’t start with “NHL Playoffs show you don’t need a top goalie”.
Funniest part is that post by Sears is behind a paywall. The NY Post expects you to pay a premium for articles that contradict themselves. Yet, people throw a pity party and wonder why the sports industry is failing. This is just the tip of the iceberg, folks.
Shame on you NY Post.
Shame on you Ethan Spears.
Your content stinks.
