That's the point though... It's quite a complicated sport, about angles, chemistry and balance. Furthermore, it's a game based on one's instincts, as quite often the game is moving so fast that you dont have the benefit of thought.
If this is a beer league, no problem. But the habs also say prices per seat can range from 90-200 bucks EASY.
I dont think it's unfair to say that if a fan such as myself, can see the same issues, year in, year out... One should expect that Gauthier and Co. should have been able to see it too?
Problem is, we've been icing the same anemic team for the better part of a decade. Just as they know this city when they are losing. They MUST have realized this would get MORE people talking negatively about the team.
It seriously looks like they set themselves up for failure at times...
