Did Other Team's Fans Go Through This Stuff?

It seems that sometimes every time I tell people that I'm a diehard Islanders fan, I also must prepare myself for a defense trial. The team may not put up results but neither did the blackhawks capitals penguins rangers devils many, many teams before that have gone through rebuilds. Did these fans go through the same stuff we go through? If you want to contiune my rant, you're going to have to jump...

Ah! You've made it safely! So nice to know you've joined me here in the land of pissedofffandom. I don't even know how many times I've had to defend the Islanders by stating opinions facts about the team to people that have no idea who Frans Nielsen is (lord save them from his backhand). My most recent debacle goes as follows (dont mind the zatch1227, my old roommate and I split Gamecenter for a few years, it was nice i reccomened doing it with your roommate, but this isn't an ad for Gamecenter twothumbsup)6548815051_a594a3e2a5_medium

(How dare you speak of Paps that way)

What the hell dude who symbolizes every other person out there. Why does no one out there know about this team? I knew the Blackhawks in the days of Thibult the caps in the days of jagr (hahahah) the other examples above are division teams, they dont really count as much, but dammit I remember Phoenix pre Tippit. Do these teams go through the same shit we isles fans do? Sadly this post really is aimed at isles fans who want to be pissy with me, and trolls so... awesome. But non the less if I have to tell people how this is garth's rebuild and in now way hewhomustnotbenamedunlessinthewaynativeamericansmighthavetalked man with anger issues' rebuild and how he is not the one that makes crazy trades and horrible contracts (dp was a whole fiasco but since then tell me one bad sign/trade) and how he's only a couple pieces away from what we need.

Thanks for reading, I just like ranting and my friends told me to shove it up some new places I didn't even know existed. So I will leave you with some uplifting words that belong to Patrick Sharp

They're a good team with young, exciting players over there," Sharp said. "We were in that situation a few years ago and they're a dangerous team. We've played them twice now and they're hungry to win. They're on their way. I remember coming in here with Philadelphia years ago, and it's a much different team. They've got things going in the right direction, for sure."
