|Loads of young teenage hockey draft picks! "Goalie? No, We Don't Have One Of Those."|
The Islanders, the fans may be witnessing what will go down in history as the final days of a franchise. Decades of losing and playing in an old, run down building left us with a reputatin for being the team you do not want to play for or get traded to.
Kirk Muller refused to board the plane.
Ryan Smythe wiped out years of wins when he quickly ran away from Long Island at season's end and never looked back. Not going to write what we paid for that weakling. (O'Marra, Nilsson + 6th overall pick in 2007 draft).
Thomas Vanek pulled off his own deceptive game and again it left us without the all-star players we paid for ( here, we traded Moulson, #2 overall pick in 2014, and 2nd rounder in 15- great!!).
Then, we pulled the #1 pick. This would be the only way we could suit up a super star player every night. We took good care of Tavares, made sure he had everything he needed. When he needed the car on Saturday nights, we tossed him the keys.
We did it- we had an All*Star on the team. There was a feeling of "Hey, life is pretty good."
Now, thanks to the only man without a brain to become a GM of a NHL club, Garth Snow, we don't have a goalie - anywhere, to speak of.
Fans think even if JT walks, we can use that money to bring in some good players and we can do this!
They forget that our reputation has not changed for the past 30 years. Nobody wants to play here- for the Islanders.
Take a good hard look at him as he takes off, you will be looking at the last superstar to ever play for the Islanders.
|Ah, the (os)Good 'ole days! WE NEED A GOALKEEPER ASAP!!!|
