another hypothetical put forth by some here and elsewhere is that as fans they would be willing to tolerate some really bad years in exchange for a true contender every once in a while. It sounds good in theory, and Im sure right now Chicago fans believe this, and of course when you get the big win, it does all seem worth it.
But I am a Cincinnati Reds fan, and was as big a diehard for them as I am the Preds now. But now with there routinely being ten years between competitive seasons, I look back and realize I would have much rather had the Reds be in the hunt every year even if we hadnt won the title in 1990.
The Preds cant afford to have fans lose interest for years at a time like I did with the Reds.
So, I think I'll stick with the Predator Way, and keep hoping for the year we catch lightning in a bottle.
