It's not just a "not want to hear" thing, it's a "whether or not I trust these guys" thing.

When I first got started following the Jackets, it was the season just before Doug MacLean was fired. I had no idea why that had been done at the time, and so started to do my research. The event I learned about that really started to clue me in to just how broken his administration was was that very same Dave King firing.

That would be an uncomfortable reminder of same.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
