So yes, it's fragile, but knowing just how much risk is really involved do you really think either side is going to force the issue right now?

I mean, if the Skins turn things around and make a big dent into the winter entertainment budgets throughout the fanbase, then I can see desperation setting in (Caps fans who get tired of spending money on a good-but-not-great product, or management that can't deal with stagnation in the face of tougher competition) but until then I don't know how much uproar to realistically expect.
Competent is letting Semin walk for nothing? Competent is extending injury-prone Poti? Competent is signing Ward to a 4 year $12mil deal? Competent is letting Flash walk for nothing? Sure there are some good moves in McPhee's favor, but there seem to be a lot of bad ones and repeated failures in the postseason. Repeated underachieving.

I think you and I have a difference in the definition of competent.

Why is demanding change "just as likely to backfire"? Change for the sake of change is foolish. Change with direction and purpose is not.
