Apparently half of the fan base should be on suicide watch because we're bubble playoff team. AKA just what we were predicted to be.

welcome to the latest rendition of fandom
i watched some online discussion about the nba
you know, the fastest growing league in the world
players making bundles and stacks of cash
they have the "best" fan base
have the most intense and well rounded social media fan base
what is interesting is that the nba is so far unable to monetize
the huge online interest of the huge social media presence of its fan base
and has tinkered with its game a bit to cater to its fan base
a very large part of the fan base does not watch entire games
but focuses just on highlights
and that is what drives their interest
the spectacular plays that they can watch in rerun time
the fundamentals of the nba game are starting to disappear
listen to the so called old timers .. shaq, barkley, thomas, etc complain about the current game.. it is more 1 dimensional.. there is less balanced team play
modern fans seem to want small snippets
and more immediate gratification
there is less patience and attention span
so when you live so much in the moment
everything is life or death i guess
everything is more extreme
nucks have a talented pool of prospects
some are in the nhl
some will be here soon
it takes time for this to mature
that requires patience from fans
and some understanding about what this actually means
a part of the fan base seems to lack this insight
i hope the game does not change to cater to these fans though
i'd miss the game of hockey
Did everyone forget we were still in the middle of a REBUILD or something? The panic is...

I think the thing most people are annoyed at is the lack of push from the young players. Let's face it, other than Pettersson, to a man every young guy that we have high hopes for has disappointed so far. Dahlen? Gaudette? Demko? They've all been disappointing, and it's frustrating to see. Add to that the fact that Boeser, our best offensive player, looks like crap, and yeah, it's cause for concern.
We've finally accumulated some decent prospect depth, but prospects are still prospects and prospect depth isn't legit NHL depth. Until some of our prospects take the next step and become legit NHL producers we're gonna struggle because you don't get young players of that ilk via ufa and the producing ufa's don't come cheap and are in high demand.
Boeser and Horvat are something to be excited about but they need help up front. You can't expect Pettersson to roll in and have a season like Boeser did, all you can do is hope. We're gonna need more from Jake and our tweener middle six guys and our defense as a whole.
I can't even handle CDC right now. Too much panic at the disco.
