The Canadiens are the NHL's top all-time elite franchise that has won the most championships. As such, a commitment to excellence and winning is expected.

As is mentioned in another post, teams like the Yankees, Lakers, Celtics, Cardinals, Packers, and Patriots manifest the same mindset.

Those of us who are fans of one of those teams (I am a Yankees fan since childhood) fully grasp and comprehend that focus on championships and winning.

The Chargers have not had such a mindset or ownership, and it has shown with numerous poor business decisions, on and off the field, through the years. I seriously doubt that will change, as long as the Spanos family owns this team. That type of mentality starts at the top, with ownership.

Does not matter how long the Canadiens have gone without a Stanley Cup championship. They have won the most Cups, and are far and away the leader in titles for the NHL. A great and legendary franchise.

It is difficult for Freak to understand this long term excellence.....he is a fan of the Pens.....so 'new money' type.
