Wonder why they boo, the Habs are giving them such a great show at home. It's surely not what they should be doing but you really call this running the circus? Where's this great management responsabilities in this?
Simple: media magnifies stuff and creates distractions. Fans consume media. Media creates more stories and drama to feed that fanbase. Whenever things are not going well, and it WILL happen, that whole "circus" makes it worse. Players, management, organization, however they want to make believe they are not affected to show their professionalism, they are affected, and at different degree. Media and fans don't necessarily start the bad stuff but the magnification makes it harder for the team to get out of it.

Management becomes part of the circus as soon as it makes decisions based on what happens in that very circus.
