In fairness, though, there's a history along these lines, one that Ranger management has ignored on a number of occasions. When previously-unheard numbers of fans called and e-mailed to protest the Lindros trade based on his injury history, they were ignored. In fact, they were mocked. Sather called them cowards.
When Bure was traded for, there were plenty who said he was damaged goods - goods that would inevitably, and most likely sooner than later, break down. Their objections were generally brushed aside.
I don't think it objectionable that people who fear history repeating itself are remarking on it, and frankly I think it laughable that anyone would claim that such people WANT this to happen. They're speaking from frustration. As such I heartily doubt they're desirous of more frustration.
