Afternoon Line

Wonder how many GMs refer to these words from time to time?

"... Where most sports organizations go wrong is in letting up once they have reached, or are near, the top of their sport. Once you’re a winner, you keep improving on perfection. You keep making trades and changes that will strengthen their team, even if they aren’t popular at the time. You go about your business. That is where we might have been different from other franchises. Once we started winning, we worked even harder to continue winning, too many organizations relax at this point.”

-Sam Pollock, longtime executive for the Montreal Canadiens.  Much more from and about Pollock at HabsWorld back in 2007.
