Make the playoffs, give the fans a glimmer of hope, and keep it status quo.
Oh believe me, those years were very difficult as a fan. Most of us Bruins fans hated Jacobs, much like Islander fans hate Wang nowadays. It's only been since the last lockout that he's actually invested money into the Bruins. He's been spending to the CAP since then, so it's easier to dislike him less, especially since we got our cup. I'm still not a fan of his, but I hate him less, lol. I also understand that he's a really shrewd businessman and the NHL is just that, a business.
