...would not be surprised to see Cougar management either ignore the team's dire needs for improvement, or somehow get hosed yet again at the deadline by giving up one of our great goaltenders for another injured wannabe or a bag of pucks and a draft pick that they will ultimately trade away before he gets any chance to flourish.

Just once it would be nice to see the Brodsky minions get the better of a trade or two...but it seems that their rep around the league as pompous and indifferent owners who know little about hockey--but a lot about nepotism--is sealed and not to change. I'm sure Lubi is more interested in his next Smirnoff on rocks than actually unearthing a hidden gem.

Anyway, I had to respond to an earlier poster in the Attendance thread who said that PG fans were ignorant for not coming out and supporting "what might be the greatest Cougar team of all time". Nearly pissed myself laughing at that one. Obviously junior is not old enough to remember the class acts of the 1997-2000 clubs...which were swimming in a world of talent but still had the same old crappy Brodsky-clan management who refused to make the final tweak which could have put those teams into the Memorial Cup. Just as long as that building's full all season, screw the Cup, seems to be their motto. This current group needs far more than a tweak, it needs defribulators and life support...and if it miraculously pulls through and makes the playoffs ahead of the Blazers...it will all be over quickly.

As a long-time fan and current season ticket holder...the best thing Brodsky could would be to fire the family connections in favour of a GM and Director of Hockey Operations who A) know hockey, B) have friends around the league, and C) are respected enough guys that players and parents want to work and play for them...not get the hell out of Dodge at the earliest opportunity.
