I suppose I could still be a fan of the players, but that's tough. I love when some guy on here said only real fans spend money and ran his mouth, then shut up when I explained I have been a 16 year season ticket member. If that stops after 17 years I guess it means I'm not allowed to be a fan anymore anyways.

I don't have the luxury of being able to afford season tickets, and I'm usually busy every night with school. I usually attend 5-10 games per year, but it will probably ease down a little bit this year because I don't see us putting a competitive team on the ice. I understand the move is very emotional for a lot of us, but I will always support my team (some years more than others, financially).

I wouldn't blame anyone for canceling their ST's just for the sake of us PROBABLY being terrible next year.

I love the guy, but this had to be done.

Its going to be so weird seeing him in a different jersey.
Very logical and makes perfect sense, but I would have waited until next year.
