I called and canceled my half-season ticket plan yesterday over voice mail as well as gave my great displeasure, directly but professionally, over the mismanagement and lack of professionalism of this organization.

 

I actually received a follow up this morning from the head of ticket services telling me, "If you don't believe in the vision or management style of the best GM in sports, perhaps you might think about following another team". 

 

I can see they really value the fans. 

So Dallas or Tampa? Kings are my video game team when someone already picked the Wings, but I'd feel/labeled as a band-wagoner.


This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

We should start a drinking game.  Every time Cleary falls down without being pushed or touched, we take a drink.


What did we ever do to you?

Meh. Would prefer a team on the east or at least central so I can watch the games. 

 

Being in Boston, might start following the Bruins closer. Though I hate a ton of players on the team, I think Chiarell is the best GM in the NHL.

This is one of the most idiotic contracts Ken has ever given. A ridiculous signing bonus, a ridiculous "performance bonus" and a NTC for an undesirable, beaten up Dan Cleary? This guy is gonna score 6 points next season and make $2.5 million.

Checking in for the first time since we got sent home last post season. This move by Kenny just gave me cancer. First our free agency fail and now this...god help us all. Thatll be all from me until the season starts back up.

If you're in Boston, how do you purchase a half season ticket package?

NTC, so it is a non factor.

Still head back to Michigan a lot due to family/work. Did temporarily move back there from Nov until this past April. 

 

Truth be told, would have probably only been able to do a 10 game package this upcoming season anyway.

First, good for you for putting your money where your mouth is.

 

Second, that follow up is absolutely disgusting.  Honestly, it worries me for the future direction of the organisation.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I try and be rational and look at both sides of things, but on this, I got nothing.  I don't care if they pinky swore, let him loose already.  I feel like this is Groundhog Day.

 

Except, Groundhog Day is funny, entertaining, enjoyable. Our team's GM revealing that he's a high-functioning addict? Not so much.


Don't Toews me, bro!
