I used to do whatever I could to make it to every single game as well. There were many nights when I would rearrange the work schedule to get game nights off. I really would like to have a team I could be proud to cheer on once again. I feel bad for the players. They are taking all the blame these days. The problem is that the long term damage coming from the top of the organization has filtered down to every other level now. It used to just be the owner, gm, scouting and coaching that were the problem. But if you dont fix a problem it will grow and grow and grow. Back in the day the high level of talent (bouck, betts, hamhuis, brewer...etc...) was enough to get by, and the team did well. The talent is still there, but the damage within the organization is much greater. Brodsky had lost the respect and confidence of the fans long ago. I think it is becoming clear now that he has lost the respect and confidence of the players as well. I surely hope that I am wrong and things will somehow turn around. But the only way I see it happening is if he finally clues in and sells the team. All he needs to do is make sure he sells for a high enough price that him and his entire family can all retire and not have to "work" anymore. The last time I checked, the definition of work was not: to beat a potentially lucrative hockey market into the ground.
