You're bang on with that one. People would luv to a see a return to the competitive rivalry that made going to the rink such an event each and every game. I still remember the buzz that used to be palpable at both rinks anticipating another heated affair between these two inter-city rivals. Obviously nobody likes to watch a team lose each and every game, but there's nothing exciting either for fans of a team like unb knowing the outcome of a game even before it begins...Bring back the uncertainty of a result and you'll get more fans making their way to both rinks....the onus is on STU to understand how the league has evolved and to make the proper adjustments.....
