If the fans see them trying and making the playoffs, the revenue will come back to them in the form of sold out playoff dates and TV revenue. Penny pinchers occasionally make it(anahiem/minnesota) but it really isn't the norm.
Well our payroll is only 2mln lower then VAN , igher then Edmonton and over 10 other teams in NHL.
Money arent the reason that we could not make PO in past 7 years , poor drafting and poor trading was.
How many teams has NOTHING to show for players like :
Giguere (traded for pick) ,StLouis(released), Kuba (exposed at waivers draft), Savard ( traded for russian prospect). also 3 top 10 overall selections ( Fata , Tkaczuk ,Krahn - made 0 impact on our team)
