Seems to me that an organization that's in the entertainment business should give its customers something to cheer about to be considered well-run.
See I disagree with you on this one. You tell me if you have unlimited funds if you wouldn't be doing what the Rangers are. Kovalev was a good trade. Lindros was as well. Bure at the time was too. See where i
am going with this.
I don't like the Rangers at all, but to compare thier mangement with the Hawks or the Bruins...its not close. at least the mangement gives the Rangers a chance to win. Unlike the Hawks who I have no clue in hell what they are trying to prove.
Rangers spend too much money, they trade thier draft picks away. I agree on both, but look at the damned roster. Thats a team that should be top 4 in the East. I put the Rangers and the Pens almost in the same boat. I would not put either in the worst of the lot because there are other factors that come into play (Pens - surviving) (Rangers - apeasing thier fans)
When I think of bad managment its the ones that just don't give a crap about the on ice product just the bottom line. And thats the Black Hawks
