Make it a one-two punch: introduce the freshly scrubbed one, Tavares, alongside the felon, Cizikas.

Modeling huh?

I think it just comes with being the #1 pick.....it's nothing compared to the hype "Sid the Kid" brought along with him pal. Get real.

Would love for the old jerseys to come back! Bring back the spirit of the old days. Unfortunately the NHL has a rule about making too many changes to the uniform, for now it will have to be the third jersey.

1996, the year that they ruined our jersies and turned them into those retarded fishshtix jersey was the first year that the isles became a joke. We've been one ever since! Returning to the jersey that won 4 straight cups would be a step in the right direction.

What has Snow done this off-season? Draft the obvious number one, and get a suitable back-up -- one of many available -- for DiPietro. That's it. Wretched performance. Wretched. But what can you expect from an organization that would keep Milbury as GM for eight years, watch him destroy the team, thank him for a job well done, and continue to keep him on the payroll? From an organization that would get burned by signing an overrated player to a 15-year deal --then do it all over again?
