If the Islanders opt to re-sign Comrie I may need to find another team to cheer for. He is a disgrace.

I had my doubts with Comrie too...but he has looked good lately with KO and Blake.

If we don't trade these guys...then Garth snow should be fired. You can't hold these summer meetings for the fans at the coliseum to go over the new game plan and I believe it was "draft wisely"..."develop our youth" and "sprinkle in free agents that make sense". I believe those were the words that came out of Snow numerous times. You have to take advantage of this opportunity to and bring in the youth. I understand it takes veterans to win also...but they have a year left...get rid of them for what you can and if they want to resign over the summer...then negotiations can begin again. Look what happen with Satan....we should have shipped him out...before he had the opportunity to sign with someone else. And please please please....get rid of Gervais. I here Afenagenov is on the market.. His speed fits our system...let's make a trade straight up. It makes sense..they need D and we need some more speed. At least Tampa and Atlanta are sneaking away with points...we can remain in last and land Tavares...then...and maybe then...the rebuilding process can actually start.

Who is going to eat up salary cap space to keep you at the league minimum if you don't sign vets that other teams aren't interested in ?

You will not get much in return for argueably your teams best player (besides Joey Mac). I would not even give a 4th rounder for Comrie. He had a good thing going in Ottawa and now his career is rotting on the island. He deserves to be booed the way he demanded the trade out of Edmonton.

I wonder what would happen if the isles drafted tavares,and held on without drafting down like the idiot snow likes to do, who is going to protect him? jackman? only a middleweight, sutton is a big girly man, fights like a beotch,oops a first period 2 zip lead disappears and they lose 3 to 2, so now they only are playing a 20 minute game, i hope several of these halfwits suffer career ending injuries, like gervais,campoli, witt,tambellini, oh oh gordons is saying the team played a good game, he needs to slit his wrists along with the c/hink and snowball. I guess they are trying for another 10 game losing streak!

Jaffee must go? Have you ever listened to Potvin or Craig(locker) Laughlin(sic) on the Capitols broadcasts??they make Jaffee sound like a genius. Laughlin has the most annoying voice and speech patterns I've ever heard. He's more annoying than Potvin if that's believable. I pray for an opposing team broadcast whenever the Caps play.
