I think I'll throw my two cents in.

I applaude Bob Gainey's comments. When I heard them my first reaction was 'bout time!'.
I think fans have the right to do whatever they want (as long as it's legal), but I also beleive management and others have the right to comment on what they do. I've always felt if a player screws up, he gets booed. He does something good, he gets cheered. Pretty fricking simple. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out a player will play better when being cheered that booed! Ask Larry Murphy!
By booing a player regardless of weather he plays good or bad, imo, is about the stupidest thing you can to. The bottom line is you are hurting the team. The team you are supposablely a fan of. Brisebois play can only get worse with the booing.

How does this help the team??
-Makes him harder to trade, if the team wanted to take that route.
-Makes potential free agents, look at Montreal and go 'NO WAY'

I'm just curious...all the fans who applauded Gainey's hiring AND boo Brisebois, what is your feeling about Gainey now???? He basically called you every name in the book. How do you like him now. Personally, I'm a bigger Bob Gainey fan now, than I ever was!!
