Well, the fans will show up in Edmonton for a season or two if we start dumping players, due to the Stockholm Syndrome the city has. Having said that, if you assumed the worst about Katz the entire time he's owned the team, you end up right where we are.

I don't know exactly why optimism is warranted here...because he's a good hometown boy, I guess?
