 Watching the game tonight, Habs -VS- the Leafs  ( 02-09-2013 )

 

 

Wow what has happened to the Hab's in the last 2 decades.

I used to live in Mtl, during the 60' through the early 90's. I enjoyed watching the game,going to the game.

Now it seems to be a crap shoot.

Is it the $$, or is it ...what ?

Give your opinion,

I would say money.

 

Money and deep pockets give you firepower.

 

Canadian teams struggle so much competing against Billion dollar owners.

 

The Canucks have a decent payroll and they still can't win the big one LMAO.

 Good lord I do hear you Bosco,

But....

Grrr now 6-0 for the Maple Leafs.

Sorry die hard Hab's fan.

 

If one looks at the $  don't the Hab's figure up there ?

Ah well welcome to reality, guess until we re-arrange the NHL to actually represent the Market, as opposed to the $...

Either way Hab's are getting their collective Butts kicked.  :-(

Now the final  6-0 for the Leafs.

As I have said for the last 15 yrs or so...Maybe next year.

If I remember correctly they were middle of the road compared to teams like Philly, Vancouver, Chi, Pitt.

 

Hard to compete with teams that have 20-30 million more on payroll. :(

I believe sports are not what they used to be like in the 80's. Money was there but it was also still about (or so it seemed to be) the love and there was a novelty called team loyalty. Now players bounce from team to team looking for the biggest paycheck like prostitutes with no serious regard for the fan base or the team history. Very seldom do you see superstars stay with a team from rookie to retirement any more. Shame.. it is why i realy only watch college football and even that is getting bad about the money.

 

the pimps with the most $$ win
