Not winning anything since 1967, not playing a meaningful game in a decade...I'd say there's much less pressure here than even small markets when the goal here since the lockout has simply been to make the playoffs. Anything after that was and still is considered gravy. Most fans think of the cup as the destination, ours is just to grab 8th place. Anything that come after that is icing on the cake. This is what happens when you're medocre or flat out bad for so long.
I worded that badly. I was just using Toronto as an example to show that some players like smaller markets.
