That also doesn't draw in a new generation of fans. Mainly blue collar players.

And you know what? I don't blame the younger fans for that. They just wouldn't enjoy hockey, if they got into it the last 5 years, and supported Avs. They'd have lost interest fast.

I'm stuck to the team, because I was a Quebec fan well before an Avs fan, so I have experienced it all, being the very high, high's, and what we are going through now, and the terribly low, lows.
Same for me , as you all know , i've been through the ups and downs of the Nordiques and to be honest, the last five years with the Avs were not that bad , compare with what a saw in Québec.
