The Montreal forum on hfboards isn't representative at all of how the average fans in the street follow the team. Unfortunately, a lot of habs fans are band-waggoners, and won't watch the team if it's not doing well, period.
So most fans don't give a ****? Good excuse for not rebuilding then.
You know what, someone asked Mel Blanc, the creator and producer of Bugs Bunny cartoons and much other excellent work, if he thought of his viewers when he worked. He said no, we work to our own standards of excellence, and that's all.
I don't give a **** if most Habs fans don't care. I expect the Habs to care.
