I mean sure you want to hold on hope but at this point it feels like we're grasping for straws and looking for signs in tea leaves that the deal will be done/extended/reworked as much as Quebec is doing for them to move.

Next Wednesday against the Oilers could be the last home game before we get to deal with 3 months of lame duck-ness
Unfortunately, I believe you will see exactly how people can be made to hold out hope into February and beyond. I'm guessing and and I both will be among them. They'll say the right things and we will lemming right along.
