Do I Agree With The Garth Snow's Youth Movement and Scott Gordon's Aggressive System. Yes! If You Noticed 25 Games In, Guys Like Bergenheim, Hunter, AND EVEN HILBERT Are On Pace To Have Career Years If They Continue To Stay Healthy. Whereas The Old Farts Don't Skate And Wait For The Puck To Come To Them....

However...We Need To Address Some Issues. First. Mike Comrie. Where Is He? I Know He's Hurt Right Now But Even When He Was On The Ice. It's Like Playing With A Man Down. Which Leads Me To Jeff Tambillini. For All The People Who Thought He Could Hack It <cough>...garth snow...He Can't. Sure Maybe He'll Turn Into A Jason Blake For Acouple Of Years...But We Can't Assume That. I Say...Trade Those Guys Before The Deadline And Get A Case Of Pucks Or Something In Return. That's An Even Trade, No? Next...I'd Like To Talk About Bruno's Terrible Play. He Finishes Every Year In The Minus Column and Hardly Generates Points. What Good Is He. Why Do We Continue sly Put So Much Faith In Guys Like This When They Don't Perform. Which Takes Me Into Blake Comeu. He Should Be Up Here. Conditioning Aside, Last Year At The End When Okposo Came Into The Picture...PARK,OKPOSO, and COMEU Played Great As A Line. They Were The Ideal Line For Scott Gordon's System. Yes, These Are Frustrations, and Yes I Might Be Preaching To The Choir. However These Things Need To Be Addressed and They Have to Be A Topic Of Discussion In The Front Office. Should The Islanders Shoot For Last and Hope The Lottery Starts In Their Favor For High Prospect John Tavares? Of Course.....Blow Every Game...What's The Difference, We're Not Getting The LightHouse Project Anyway....Build The Team Around Tavares.... Because Our Face Of The Franchise Is Running Around Elementary Schools Trying To Sell The Team For 4.5 Mill A Year, Year after Year. I Challenge Anyone Who Tries To Prove Any Of These Statements Incorrect!

Maybe we can move off Long Island.Then any facility we get would be newer than the Coliseum.Only Kidding.Give the kids a chance and some of the veterans also.Dont get me wrong ,you can still get rid of Comrie and tambellini.It seems like the kids in Bridgeport are learning the system really well.Now when they come up ,they can really fit right in.

So it looks like more bush league nonsense from Islanders managemnt. The youth movement is bull. Nielsen is the first 'young' guy you come across on the stat sheet with a wopping 9 points, and guess what he has even been in the system a while. A GM (and owner) should not be involved with the on ice descisions as much as the Islanders management is. Players would come to the coliseum if there was a legitamte hockey management structure in place, which they could have had with Smith and Nolan. Instead it is a joke.
