Gainey's focus should be 100% on improving the team for the next years. I guess he didn't see it like this though when he got Mr. Cap Space Gomez.. I'm sick of the half-ass approach. We've had a mediocre team for 15+ yrs.

Hockey is a business and for the owners it is all about making the playoffs even if it is only for 2 home games just for the added revenue...

It's tough as fans to just be content making the playoffs and having a mediocre team but really it all boils down business and how much money an owner can make in the end...

If I had a choice of the Habs finishing 8th or 9th and just missing the playoffs I would still pick the playoffs even if it only lasts 4 games...
