    There are simply hundreds of thousands of casual fans who don't stop following a team because their favorite player, and we shouldn't worry about the hundreds who might.
    I'm 40 and have known many many many fans throughout my time around the game. I don't know ANY fan that said "they traded X away, im never watching them again." Hell, i don't even know if i can think of a fan of ANY sport who said that.

    There was a lot of that kind of talk with the Callahan trade. A lot of (young) fans were pissed. Talking about how they'd go be Lightning fans now.

    And i bet none went through with that. There is a difference between the 5 minute hissy fit we all get when someone leaves (Gaby ) and actually doing so. If we took every "you know, that's it, I'm never watching them again" after every dumb Rangers moment, Dancin Larry would be doing his jig alone in the stands
