Rather Miss?

There was a poll put out by TSN 1260 asking if people would prefer to make the playoffs and keep the current GM or miss the playoffs and fire Chiarelli. Everyone knows that Chiarelli is unpopular and deservedly so but it’s still surprising to see that 67% of fans would rather see the team lose […]
