People wanted to dump Coburn, now he's darkhorse for captain material.

Yes, people are fickle, but remember at the end of the day all that matters is who you will remember and how.

Everyone hated Lindros. They had solid reasons. Now he's back in the hearts and imaginations of those who grew up watching him, possibly too young to understand why there was such hatred in the first place.

This is clearly a different situation with Hartnell, but the fact remains that he has done more good for this organization than not. No one ever faulted him for not trying. We've laughed with him more than at him. That is endearing enough. On-ice success is what cements that with long-term affection.
