    Thanks Dez, after reading the "sweedish goalie" thread, my immediate reaction was PC has options to continue his success.  In the past he has had some so called "luck" especially with the Kessel trade.  He has also managed the cap to be able to continue the high level of play on the ice.  The award is a recognition of his tutlege and to JJ for hiring his services.

    "Boston’s first round exit in 2012 can be partially overlooked on the grounds of fatigue. They still have an excellent team and while they do have a couple question marks going into the summer, they don’t have any major unrestricted free agents that need re-signing. It looks like Boston will have another good team in 2012-13."

    I have so many issues with these two statements. Oh well, not to spoil the party. Way to go Jacobs/Neely/Chiarelli/Julien. They've got a good thing going.

    Of course, revenues are bound to go up when the costs of everything skyrockets. Oh darn. I went negative again.

    I was pleased to see the rankings included all sports teams. You're absolutely right Isla. JJ was smart to hire a hockey guy with a Harvard business degree to run his franchise. It brought him a Cup and extra dollars. Everybody wins.

    It's no surprise you'd fail to bring up they also beat out the Texas Rangers and Stewart-Haas Racing. Good on the Dragons to make strides as a business. Having success in minor league baseball (or any business) isn't easy. Speaking of poor business decisions, congrats on getting AV signed to an extension. Now the race is on to see who gets fired first, AV or Gillis?

    Oh, c'mon dez -- it's just a bit of good-natured ribbing.  Wink

    Don't you think it would look strange, from a business-decision standpoint, if the Canucks didn't extend the contracts of the GM and Coach who led their franchise to back-to-back President's Trophies?

    GMs and Coaches get rewarded contracts for getting smoked in the 1st round ? Hmmm...

    So, based on that line of thinking, there should be 8 sets of GMs and Coaches fired each April?  What about the teams that miss the playoffs? Should they fire all their senior staff too?

    SD was giving you the short version.  Long version is "GMs and Coaches get rewarded for putting together teams that succeed in the regular season and then get smoked 4-1 in the first round?"  It's different when a) the staff haven't been around for 6 years - long enough to put up or get out; b) they're looking to build on a Cup loss so expectations are high; c) they put up a spirited fight against a dogged team. 

    Rewarding regular season success despite playoff failure looks like a business decision.

    "The Bruins enjoyed record growth of revenue in terms of retail sales, corporate sponsorships, and ticket sales. Additionally, the Bruins Foundation, which is the franchise’s charitable arm, set new highs in fundraising. Then, of course, there’s the most obvious reason the Bruins were considered: Their 2011 Stanley Cup victory."

    This was telling.  On the one hand, winning does a lot for your marketing and sales teams.  On the other, ask again what Neely really does given that his more significant post-hockey experience as an Exec is in charitable foundations.

    Wasn't a big part of that record growth for the Foundation Marc Savard's three season commitment to donate a suite to the Children's Hospital? Or was that indpendent of the Foundation?

    In 2010 and 2011, the Canucks lost to the Cup Winners (Hawks & Bruins), and it looks a lot like that'll happen in 2012, as well. 

    It seems like, in order to be worthy of the Cup, you have to be able to beat the Canucks.

    .............or maybe the realistic point of view is the Canucks are not worthy of the Cup because of getting beat by those teams.

    Lalalalala, it is not who is in the Cup finals, or who lost to the eventual Cup winners, it is about who won the Cup.  

    In keeping with the thread, the Bs management team has done a great job.  No if ands and buts, they are in a great position to build a team.  PC does not do crazy trades, he has made some additions... Boychuk, Paille, Kelly, and Peverly to name a few.  The signing of goalies recently actually speaks to his desire to cover the weakness in the Bs system.  These goalies are to help in the transition as he plans to draft goalies, already stating in the later rounds of the drafts.  He will listen but not delve into a stupid trade like the Vancouver Hodgson trade.  He has cap room, young players, options at the goalie postion, and caution in his arsenal in the upcoming draft and preseason 2012. PC and the Bs management team deserves recognition not comparative degradation.

    Best consolation prize is not losing to the team that goes on to win it all - it's seeing that team flame out hard because they have nothing left after the war.

    If the criteria were "diving, whining, biting and outstanding regular season success with nothing to show for it when it counts" then without question the Canucks would be named The Team Of The Year.  As you said, just a little good-natured ribbing, 49.

    I guess it is difficult to win when almost half your games are played against the likes of Edmonton, Calgary, Minni, and Colorado.

    We'll use Bruce "not on Golden Pond with Ducks" Boudreau and Claude "I will ram muckers down Bruins fans throats" Julien as examples.

    Bruce is a real good coach, some say excellent coach but he went know where with three 100 point seasons in a row and went caput on his face in the playoffs. Going with Books "business decision" Leonis extended him, me thinks after the 121 point season, but was lucky enough  that he didn't have to wait for a team to sign him or the Ducks didn't have do a buyout (I believe) to grab Boudreau.

    I'm sure Leonis is very happy with ticket and apparal sales in Washington but with all that talent Boudreau didn't produce long runs in the playoffs and to the ultimate goal the Stanley Cup. I don't believe Anaheim had to do a buyout or Boudreau is still collecting money from Washington.

    For argument sake lets say the Bruins get knocked out of the 1st or 2nd round next year after another 100 point season. Does Julien get an extension ? I wouldn't but if Claude were to get an extension say this summer then bite it in the 1st round then Jacobs is looking at Chiarelli.

    How many seasons, chances does Vigneault get ? All 3 years of his extension ? Another 100 point season then gone in the 1st or 2nd round it just wouldn't matter ? Just keep Alain, ticket sales and apparel are just enough up there ?
