I understand your point about it being a business, but there has to be a line to tread, we're making purely business decisions right now and not caring about being a winning team, a contending team, a perennial contender. That culture needs to change.
I would like to see you be the GM for the Habs, be in a playoff hunt and yet trade away your UFA's for draft picks. I'm sure the fans and players would love you for it.

As for the team making purely business decisions, it shouldn't be a big surprise, the guy that owns the team just forked over what 600M bucks?
