The problem is that Cigarran and Fritch, the two mouthpieces, acknowledge that their more hockey fan than hockey mind. Their assumption is that the issue is player related, and that Poile\Trotz are the team to fix it.

Maybe they're right, maybe they're not.
that gushing will cease as soon as attendance falls and the financial losses mount.

even though they bought this team out of community spirit they are still businessmen and will eventually intervene if the business begins to fail.
