Do Sharks owners watch the games?

If Sharks owners are watching the games, aren't they bored to death with the style of play the Sharks are playing? Hockey should be fun and exciting, just look at the Eastern Con. 2 or less goals a games for eternity is NOT fun to watch!!

DW and TMac are still employed so I'm going with no.

Sharks owners will only care once the boring style of hockey fails to generate the revenue they desire.

Not that the style isn't frustrating, but wishing for eastern conference hockey in the west is silly.

The owners, management and coaches don't watch hockey and don't know even the basics of the game. True knowledge is on internet boards.

i seriously cant stand sharks hockey right now. The first 5 games was quick, transitional hockey but even since that time frame they have played absolute garbage. Oh and last year was also absolute garbage.

Actually, I just hate tmac

Can't disagree. We sold most of our season tickets due to how boring they've gotten.

The reason I didn't re-up my 10-game pack this year was because 8 or 9 of the 10 I went to last year were snoozers. As soon as they raised the prices (and didn't do anything in the offseason) I decided it wasn't worth it.

I stupidly bought tickets to several games after the hot start, thinking the Sharks would finally be playing exciting hockey, though

You do not want an owner who is overly involved in hockey decisions. That usually ends in epic disaster.

If T-Mac's boring style was successful I wouldn't care and would be like every Blues fan defending their trap. But it's a failure and is awful to watch. How does he still have a job?

That but more importantly if a club drops in value. The amount of profits from yearly revenue sources is not that great, but selling the club at a profit is.

To the owners, it is similar to purchasing a rental house. The rent income needs to cover expenses and make the operations worthwhile, but the real payoff is selling for double the amount paid down the road.
