To be honest, yes. Like many of us, I bought into the fact that the team was on the rise the second half of last season. I thought that would carry over into this season, especially with a considerably healthier team than we had going into last season. I was very optimistic going into this season, but there play as of late has been extremely discouraging as a fan and if it remains this way throughout the majority of the season then there is no point in spending money on a bad product.

If you truly feel that this is a playoff caliber team (and they very well may be, though I don't share that belief) then 6 games into the season should not be enough to sway you. Even in the absolute best case scenario, the Isles will still go through peaks and valleys. And all teams experiencing valleys look like a "bad product"

Keep your optimism.

I also did not say they are happy about it. I said they do not just do not care. So please stick to what I said. FACT is that Wang and Snow NEVER get outraged over losing. They NEVER demand better. There is a a laid back, nothing matters attitude on the Island. Even from many of the fans.
You know this for a fact? Are you in the office with Wang and Garth after a loss?
