We honestly were the Oakland A's of the NHL looking up to the Red Wings like the Rays look up to the Red Sox. Can't believe the bungle of the first lockout JJ orchestrated (and having noone under contract for the rollback i.e. Gonchar/Thornton/Nylander for 70 cents on the dollar) didn't set the team back decades. Fenway in your opinion how much better is the current TV deal than what the NHL had during the Outdoor Living Network days adjusted for inflation and everything (but not in comparison to the other 3 sports of course?) It was sort of ingraned in us that it was peanuts and payroll had to be met with ticket/hot dog sales.
