It starts at the top. Bills sucked until they made the RIGHT change at the top and brought in Bill Polian, Polian assembled a roster, changed the staff and built a winner.....
We will be a middle of the road team until the change happens at the top...Regier must go first, change the culture of the team because this team plays at 90%....yes, I believe that falls on the coach but they're tied at the hip (GM/coach)...both need to go or we'll never get out of the first round of the playoffs.
Do you even realize that it took a lockout then winning a lottery for the Pens to get Crosby. That posters actually think thats a planned thing or realistic to replicate is incredible
Yes, I think I realize how Sidney Crosby was drafted into the NHL. The lottery still had odds that were relative to team performance (yes, I know that we had the highest odds as well).
Look at this years draft class, and look at this years Buffalo Sabres squad. Maybe it's just because I see Mackinnon and Drouin multiple nights a week at the rink across the street from me, but when I see how bad this team is, I can't help but hope for a shot at one of those guys rather than finishing 8-12 and likely retaining the exact same system (coach included) that we've seen for the last 15 years.
I really could care less if you think I'm "less" of a fan because of this. I really don't think it's an unfair way to look at things given our current state.
Evidentally you would fall under the category of too egotistical to think that there's a chance they could prove you wrong.
yea, that was from the self serving non sense comment... i dont know what the **** it was meant to mean. something like, "you should always root for them to win, because no matter how much they suck, they might not suck"
