Ottawa media going to throw a wrench in the rebuild?

As I constantly look for new Sens talk to entertain my spare time, I got to thinking about the rebuild. So far, I must say that Sens fans have seemed to embrace the idea of a rebuild. People seem excited for some new blood, and new personalities to be entering the fray. My fear of a 'fake' rebuild has settled, as it seems Bryan Murray had brought in some real quality people to surround the organization, and it appears that the organization is willing to be patient with the young guys by rewarding older prospects like Condra, Butler, and Smith (they couldn't wait much longer in the AHL before making the jump), while letting some blue-chip prospects like Lehner and Zibanejad develop before making the jump (which is why I was happy to see a 4 yr contract signed with Anderson, taking the rush of development off of Lehner, for example). We'll see if Cowan and Rundblad make the team, but Murray hasn't made a move yet which tells me that the organization is willing to wait to see if they are ready before making any moves (like trading/buying out Kuba; he could at least be a 5/6th D-man if we needed him to be).

Then I got to wondering about the Ottawa media. Now, I know they are renowned for creating drama out of nothing just for the sake of the story, which got me thinking, do you think next season they will be doing the same? As patient as Sens fans are now, will the Ottawa media make a story of a possibly last pace team and start a fan outrage demanding changes? Or will Sens fans recognize that it is necessary and be patient and stay the course? I believe it's inevitable that if/when the team falters, the media will write that changes need to be made and begin to plant a seed of doubt among Sens fans. My question is, will the majority of fans follow suit? And furthermore, will management be able to overcome the pressure?
