The have and leafs are poorly run teams ? Man, that's rich. If being two of there three most powerful economic engines ( one being the mosr successful) in the league is treating their fans with distain, I'm okay being distained..
Just because a team is not popular doesn't mean it will be popular in the future. If Nashville built a rink a year for 60 years they would still be behind Montreal and Toronto. In the first 14 years, how many new rinks have been built?
Economic success today coupled with poor value is not something to brag about. Its a bad strategy. Its a strategy that they will regret if they don't begin treating their fans as if they care about them.
Building rinks is no indication of professional sports success.
