" they throw the puck around blindly and freely..." Wow! Just wait until Comrie comes back and then you'll really see it. McDonald lived up to his name "McDonalds"..he had two "soft serve" goals last night

Don't worry DP will save us!(JK)
But seriuosly, I expected 25 wins from this team for the year, a little more than twice as much as 1972 (12 wins), and about 50+ points. Anything more than thht is gravy. We are re-re-re-re-starting all over again, patince Islander fans.

What do you mean-when they lose they dnt even have the energy of a beagle.

Weight-yes there are a few us out here that care if you still win...
but Im going to defend a team that shows no pride or passion.

Also-will you guys please start hitting the net. I dnt remember watching a team miss the net more than this group.

this system sucks, the team looks confused out there. yor right i never seen a team miss the net as often as this one. We look like a expansion team not a youth movement.
