Actually Rich, I never really thought about it. Interesting subject though. The first thing that pops into my head is that it's like wondering if you would want terminal cancer or aids. You gonna die a miserable death from both so it really doesn't matter much. Both Wank and Kumar are scumbag criminals and it's frustrating to live with the fact that Wank owns and has done everything he can to help destroy this once proud franchise. Neither one has or will ever have a clue as to how to run a hockey team so.....
Yeah Jack, guess you're right about that. here is something to give you a bit of joy, scroll down and play the video...

I took a look at that site to see if there was anything new with the Isles, only saw the jersey sale that I hadn't seen before.

another jersey sale ? are they still selling those horrible base orange ones from the Yashin era ? I still have my fish stick jersey from that glorious Wendall Clark era. As bad as it looked, I did like the lighthouse patch on the shoulder.

take a look at ESPN today; there's a story that the Blackhawks are selling 'melted ice' from the United Center for charity. Nice that it's charity...but how do you enjoy 'melted ice'??

It was Bobby [knuckles Nystrom's]Nystroms cup winning jersey, and as for enjoying melted ice, I would refreeze it, and use it in my Dewars Scotch and water drinks. lol

Mirastys nickname was "nasty" not many guys would have wanted to tangle with him. Would have like to see him and Domi go, but I think nasty was to big and strong for Domi.

That would have been a great fight Rich! Mirasty is listed at 5'10 but that's being generous I think. Not tall but like Domi, built like a fire hydrant. Those two would have made careers out of fighting each other had Mirasty made it in the NHL. A friend of mine played minor league hockey with Mirasty and said he's insane. His fight videos pretty much support that statement. I think he's been playing in Russia for the past couple of seasons.

Mirasty playing in Russia huh? Must be a ton of guys in the AHL/NHL who are thankful for that. lol

Can you imagine what a fan favorite he would be if he played in NY?

Can anyone tell me why Marty Reasoner is still listed on the Islanders roster, in 31 games last season he had a total of 5 points yes, 5 points and they were 5 assists, with NO goals, so why the hell is this waste still with the team? He and Snow, and Wang must be into a manage a trois.

I was just watching an old 1980 video and the Isles 1st cup and got to thinking, if Milbury was the GM back then they would have been hard pressed to win even 1 of their 4 consecutive cups, thank God he wasn't around at that time, and he came when they were in their waning years, and he was a huge contributer to that wane.

Hey Rich I hope your well and gearing up for the season. I have been away from this for stuff and even though I feel the Islanders main goal is getting to the playoffs where as other clubs want to win the Stanley Cup.
I'll call it know, IF the Islanders make the playoffs it will be another first round ouster.(them of course) other than that they do not make the playoffs. They did nothing in the off season to help better their team, or shall I say take them to the next level.
And as always Charles Wang is a POS !!!!!

Hey insider,Hope you had a good summer, I agree, I also do not see an iota of improvement attained by Snow over the summer for this teams chances to advance, what Cal Clutterbuck, an instigator who can't fight. I've seen several of his fights on video and he loses more then he wins, and why no new talent to go on the wing with Taveras, Moulson is good but who is going to score from the other wing? We all know that Wang sux a big one except a bunch of Wang lovers on IPB, and the head Wang lover Schultz, the "Hockey Maven LOL

Don't know about that GD, but perhaps all those Guiness'es have warped your sense of recognition a tiny bit, you wouldn't be the first one. lol

then again, it may have been a shadow cast by Sam Rosen's nose. Maybe I should just stop watching preseason games in all ?
