As much as people want to sit here and say that the fans in edmonton "ran Arnott outa here" it was really a two way street. A lot of people remember the fans getting on Jason doe's anyone remember why? He was a lazy inconsistent player who disappeared for weeks at a time. Eventually he managed to put it all together and became one hell of a Centre. But when he was here he was great the first couple years and then he QUIT on his team took bonehead penalties and stopped TRYING. The one thing about edmonton that we all seem to have in common is we respect and cheer for a team or player that tries hard every shift. If you take a night or week or month off we will come down you pretty hard. And rightfully so these guys are paid way more money than most of us could possibly fathom having and its the fans that provide that opportunity in the first place. If you try HARD in EDM you are loved. If you try hard and WIN you are a a GOD.
