Players say that's what fans expect
Great article, enjoyed getting the players perspective.
Shame to anyone who thinks the name on the back is as important as the name on the front, and that goes anywhere, not just a professional hockey team. I wonder how the NS would react if Sebring declared his needs are greater than the organization? That is a selfish and spoiled attitude and not one I've traditionally associated with hockey players who skated their way out of the mill or mine into a career playing a game.
As to titles: I do not require a championship every year...I don't even expect a good team every year. I do need to see some evidence of passionate commitment in most games played during the season.
