Really, this is a ****ing joke: Mario Lemieux, Jagr, Malkin, Crosby, WTF? And the Lightning: Lecavalier, Richards, Stamkos, Hedman. **** hockey cities getting all the goods. Oh and did I mention Washington?
I hear ya but Pittsburgh is not a **** hockey market. Washington has been average and Tampa has been poor, only flocking to games to see a cup winner (I don't care what any Bolts fan says because very few other teams have a more fairweather fanbase). All those Hab superstars of the 40s to 70s and since then almost nothing. The league changed in the post-WHA days and not for the better as far as NHL original six teams are concerned. Have to share the wealth with **** hockey markets now. And it's not like MLB since the Habs are not in one of the richest markets and couldn't spend more than anyone else in a non-cap world like the Yankees do to keep their empire going. (Sigh) Most of us were born a few decades too late to see any regular Hab glory. Now we're sitting in the midst of the black years in an otherwise wildly successful franchise history.
