Do you Honestly think, this thread was made so people can come in here and be like
"OH yea.. we are in losing situation, hope we lose some more so we can draft yapokov and be happy" ?
You know the reason this thread is up, i don't see how it's so hard for people not to express their opinion on EVERY other thread. It's getting tiresome to hear all about losing.. drafting high.. people getting fired. That's obvious, its result of losing season. There is no discussion.
Also neofury seems to be trying very hard to channel his "pain" , so to speak, through the fact that we draft high. That and shelling himself to possibility that we lose 65+ % of our games, which makes watching the habs even more painful, no matter how happy it makes you to think your getting potential superstar. And i doubt if i tell anyone the losing result of a game that he will go ahead an watch it. You don't watch games for the result, you watch games for everything in between the start and the end. The less predictable the result, the better.
So most this drafting talk is just putting people's expectations low, belief becomes inexistant and the only thing left to discuss is the future of the habs and how we can do better. While that's great and all, and HF stands for hockey futures, some will like to still live the games, and enjoy the unpredictability of the game itself.
But i mean, no matter your reason, there are multiple threads where people can talk about losing and long term plans for the team.
What's the point of having a thread on a discussion board where people with opposing views aren't allowed to discuss though? (Not talking about opposing fanbases who are just looking to troll) Everyone here genuinely has the teams best interests at heart we all just have a different idea of how things should be.
If there's merit to what people are saying and they aren't attacking others and throwing the insults I don't get the issue. As far as I can tell the OP and title did not have any mention of not being able to discuss other potential positives.
Don't throw a discussion out there and then get sour when people give you unconventional answers in terms of what you are asking for. That is the entire point of this internet forum, if everyone has the same opinion there is no point to this thread.
PS: I still enjoy the games most nights even if we lose. I like watching how individual players play (but as a team if that makes sense) and watching prospects improve. I'm not channeling anything I just know that sometimes the grass really is greener on the other side. For once don't you want to see a superstar forward Hab? Like an absolute beast forward? I don't know if you do but I do, and nothing is better than home grown talent. Whether it's from Quebec or just in the sense that we developed them. This is our one opportunity, because I guarantee you this team is much better then they've been or their record shows and next year we'll be right back in the race. Why do you think I'm so positive in all of this? This is the opportunity of a life time, it's win/win. I understand sometimes a top pick is a bust but the person I have the most faith in with this management = Trevor Timmins and I already like what I'm seeing.
If you don't understand it's cool, but no amount of bad will ever make me stop watching this team and following our prospects. Player development is just very interesting to me. Guess it's why I have 20k posts on some hockey forum
