True 'day, Bluenote...

I'll be honest, I still root for the team to win. I still hope they win. I still hope for the playoffs. I still watch and go to games (although I've only been to two this season, and have had tickets to more). But that doesn't make me blind. I can give an honest assessment of where I believe the organization is. What I think of the performance of the players. Where I think they're going.

Max is right, there still remains 32 games and the team's in striking distance. It is, however, a sad commentary on the game when that is true. Consider this, Max, Florida can make the same claim as the Rangers, and Florida ain't that good. Heck, Carolina's not too far behind and they've been abysmal this season.

Sorry, but when you acquire superstars and spend $80+ million, you raise the expectation bar, and you expect a team that will compete on a nightly basis, not one that doesn't always compete and is still filled with obvious holes.
