---Exactly. Notice how the only people you hear complain about boring systems are those whose teams lose to opponents who employ such systems successfully. It's true of the fans (Detroit played a pretty strict defensive system under Bowman, ever recall hearing a complaint from a Wings fan about how boring any of their three Cup runs were?), and it's even true of the players (see, e.g., Mike Modano, who vigorously defended Hitchcock's system from charges of boredom when he played under it, but then bellyached about Babcock's system after the Ducks sent him to the golf courses last spring.)
