Good luck with that.
With the vitirol being directed at the organization from the fans, pundits and even the media in Columbus right now? I'd still take it... I don't think its a stretch to say that everyone in this city was behind the firing of MacLean, Priest and Howson probably could've shipped everyone out without anybody batting an eyelash.... You could actually start a full rebuild when it would have been most prudent and when you had the most backing from your fans and the media.

We'd be heading into year five of that rebuild effort instead of pushing all our chips in the center last offseason in an attempt to save face from the previous 30 games of the 10-11 season by trying and spectactularly failing to make the playoffs.

Selling any kind of rebuild now with with Howson and Priest still running the show should be difficult and should be met with plenty of skepticism.... With the corporate welfare, I think its fair to say that this city DESERVES better.
