It's been 11 years. Are we still blaming Maclean for f'ing up the franchise? We've tried every type of coach, type of roster, and type of management. None of them have won anything in this city.
ALL of the attendance problems can be blamed on the poor performance of the team. The arena was quite full for years, even with a losing record, and the one playoff appearance and draft were absolutely bonkers. People have finally gotten fed up with poor results after more than a decade. It's not a lack of fans, it's fans who have had enough, and with good reason.
