We have been thru far worse than this, and if we could get thru it before, we sure can do it now.
It's a completely different thing when you are the laughing stock of the NHL and when you are 2 seasons off of a Stanley Cup. Yea, we've been through far worse but not after winning a Cup just a short time ago.
We, as fans, expect more and tolerate much, much less and we all know that if this team fails to perform this year then we will once again become a laughing stock. No one here wants that.
