Only way the Lightning get the attention of the press is to flat out win the cup.

Default Cup

Even when/if we win the Cup we will get no respect. How many commercials for the playoffs show Andy hoisting the Cup? How many commercials show Lightning players? Few and far between...we do not exist to the NHL marketing people.
Look at Point perfect person to market to young people, but not happening.

Bob Cole is about the same age and he's been phased out of calling games for CBC/Sportsnet. He wasn't too happy about that, kind of in denial but he's lost a couple steps from his heights in the 80s and 90s. I can only imagine how ungracefully Don Cherry would go out in the same scenario.

Right? He used to be able to string a sentence together & express a semi-coherent thought, at least.

I take him in a mostly comedic vein at this point in his career. When he says “now watch this here”, I chuckle.

Marchand expresses regret for his actions, and promises to change
