Can't even do anything but dump it in while we are playing in an elimination game. Safe to say momentum has shifted.
Safe to say the lack of scoring talent has been exposed as well...
Seriously - the book on detroit for the past decade has been get physical with them and push their "skilled" players outside the dots. Tampa has done that perfectly in this game. Once Homer retired and Cleary's legs went, there has been no one of note in the middle of the ice. And without a guy like Hossa who can create his own offense AND score, this team has to rely on skill and system to work and that just won't get it done in the playoffs unless the abundance of skill is overwhelming like it was in 2008 and 2009.
I never said the GM set ticket policy, what I said it that the GM has power, and unless its coming from the owner or president, if the GM is firmly against something, I'm sure he has pull to veto it.
Also, if you are going to say I am "100% incorrect", please post a link or something to backup your statements, otherwise you are just sharing your opinion.
You are only saying that because it's Steve Yzerman. No other NHL team has a GM meddle in business affairs outside of the NHL roster.
And yes I'm working on finding a link for exactly who controls ticket policy. I guarantee you Tampa is set up like every other NHL team and has an Executive VP for that purpose....
EDIT: I could only find stories that had quotes coming from the team's communications director, so I called their ticket office directly at 813.301.6600. Per someone named Tony, this policy was envisioned by the owner and put into practice by the COO. Yzerman has ZERO to do with it. Feel free to call yourself if you want.
