Winston Legthigh Posted May 8, 2010 Share Posted May 8, 2010 You are mainly talking about the last 10 years, with which I would readily agree with your point. I am mainly talking about the last 40 years, when sellouts were far more common. Also, draft picks are what you make of them. You have to know who to pick. They have picked more than their fair share of dogs over the years with those high draft picks. When the management improved (Dale Tallon especially), their draft picks improved as well. I hate watching sports played badly by the teams I love. Frankly, why would I waste my time? Does that make me less of a fan? It definitely makes me a more judicious one. Personally, I don't have an issue with rewarding a shitty team with high draft picks. That's how every league works, and should work. They've even installed the lottery system so that teams wouldn't tank to get the 1st pick (cough Penguins cough Lemieux cough). A good Blackhawks team is good for the NHL. If the Hawks win the Cup, I'd prefer they go through Detroit to do so. It doesn't look like it will play out that way this year. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
