Actually, the typical fan perspective is to be entertained during the 60 minutes of each game, start every season thinking we'll win the Cup, and not be overly concerned with the machinations and long-term strategies. I was like this for a long time. Me, my friends, all of us followed the Habs every year, hoped for the best, watched the playoffs until we lost and then forgot all about it until October.

Analyzing the game behind the game -- like what we do here -- is an atypical perspective of a small % of fans who see what happens in the board-rooms as being as interesting as what happens on the ice.
