Boy, with the CC series coming up, I think he should hone in on comparing 4 seats to a Broncos Football game to 4 DU Hockey tickets, in terms of entertainment value - and players' attitudes and "heart". What we saw happen Saturday night in the 3rd period at Magness - by kids who aren't getting paid......speaks volumes about what transpired Sunday at Invesco - by millionaires. Pioneers fans left the building upbeat & impressed; Broncos fans left disgusted & pissed off!
