Calling out Derek Boogaard

OK. So I've had the (dis)pleasure of playing with and against Derek Boogaard in a few rec/summer hockey games and I can honestly say I can dish, make plays and outmuscle him on any given day.

So how come he gets the nod to play in the NHL over myself or any other AHL hopeful?

I'll tell you right now I'll have a tilt against any NHL tough guy for a bargain price of $775,000 ($100,000 less than Boogy) plus, I guarantee I'll score more points than Josh Harding.

Where's the dotted line Doug?
