People have different perspectives. I won’t speak for others, but for myself, I will never pretend I know more than professionals who do this for a living. I’m also a super patient guy.
The big difference I’ve seen this year compared to, say, the 10 game losing streak, is how the players are talking, how the coach is talking. I see a divide. The media has turned on Hak. Hak has become combative. Hex is no longer saying he’s got full trust in Hak - instead he says that things need to
Ordinarily, I’d lay some blame on the players for running another coach out of town, but really this is Hakstol’s mess. His teams have played emotionless, safe, perimeter hockey with no discernible improvement over the course of his tenure. The PK has been and remains a complete disaster (and after the coaches supposedly “studied” it over summer). He has sucked and sort of grit or aggression out of their game.

That's not laying an egg. Laying an egg would have taken more effort than
A cheering section?
I think most people on here call a spade a spade. Sure we all have certain players we may cut a bit more slack to, but that certainly doesn't apply to any one specific player. I'd say this is the 3rd season I've been hearing calls for Hakstols head on here. Complaining about Flyer goaltending predates the internet. So I'm not sure what you're talking about...not on here.
now there is an oxymoron for you .... surely you jest. (just kidding ... I understand your point)
Again I totally agree with the points you are making. Sadly there are but a few handful of us who understand the absolute stench coming from the Wells Fargo Center (or what ever the current name is). Many fans (especially those on FB whom I avoid like the plague) ..say ...but..but. ..but you can't trade G..he had a career year last year. Or you can't trade Jake because _____________
