It was a slap in the face to one of the NHL's best and props to the Stars management for calling out your organization, you can't sit back and take in the most revenue sharing money, vote against schedule changes and ignore the history of the sport and then try to convince the rest of the league you have a knowledgeable fan base. Doesn't work like that.

Ok i'll bite

Question:
What do Revenue Sharing and Schedule changes have to do with honoring of players?

Answer:
Absolutely nothing!

Revenue Sharing is something ALL organizations agreed to as the best way to improve competition and parity. Dallas included. Currently Nashville is benefitting the most from that, I highly doubt that trend will continue

Scheduling changes - Originally the 30 Organizations yes 30 not 29 with Dallas abstaining agreed to go on a 3 year scheduling plan to see if they could build some new rivalries. Currently we are 2 years in and less than 2/3rds of the league (2/3= 20 for those who dont know) including Montreal, New Jersey, Ottawa, Columbus, Anaheim think it wiser to continue the 3 year plan and have enough of an experience base to make a better decision on where to go next. If you think Dallas voted for the change simply for the betterment of the game you are incredibly naive. Each and every team had what was better for their team in particular in mind when voting for or against changing the schedule and to imply otherwise is disingenuous

also you are being ignorant of the facts that there are many many intelligent and hockey knowledgable fans on this board and in the arena and the few you think are idiots dont represent the bulk of true nashville fans and honestly to stereotype the entire fanbase in the way you are doesnt speak well of yourself not your fan base
