How many more games until someone realizes that Thumbellina doesn't have what it takes to play in the majors? I actually saw a team worse than the Islanders last night...the Devils. Are the Devils fans calling for Sutters ouster, calling him incompetent? I haven't seen any improvement the past 2 years from this coach. Sutter had the advantage of taking over a "good" team and Gordon inherited a "lousy" team. One team is getting worse and the other is showing some improvement. One team has it's #1 (in the league?)goalie out and the other has its "all star" goalie out. Just making a comparison.

Anyone who buys the garbage the Islanders are selling needs their head examined. Maybe they'll get the #1 pick and select a goalie again.

'The good news there, Gordon said, was that the players were eager to review video of what went wrong. "They want to be better..." What is this, sixth grade? Getting A's for effort and attitude? No more pulling hair, pulling bra straps? Has it really sunk to that level? Are there words left to describe this organization?

How nice - the team is still happy while the fans are being tortured through another disastrous season.

Are you having fun watching the Islanders? Well, I'm not. Gordon says they're reviewing the videos...it's most likely the videos of "Desperate Housewives." Glad they are having fun cashing their checks for playing 40 out of 60 minutes a game. Gordon is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

What a flippin joke-
Nobody in that entire organization is having fun - from the chick who answers the phone, to the trainer, to the stick boy, to Captain Bill Guerin-
There's not one player on this team who wouldn't jump at the chance to be traded the hell right off this Island-
It's a Shat- Show-

I thought the same when I read that but I guess he has to try to stay positive about something. Martinek coming back will help if he doesn't shatter again soon. Look for some improvement all around soon.

"We're having fun?" "Having Fun?"Let's see last place, a power play that couldn't score if their wasn't a goalie their,oh yeah it's barrel of monkeys with this team!!!! I really miss Ted Nolan!!! Gordan really must have 55 gal. drum of kool aid in the locker room.0-8 on the power play twice with a 5 on 3 advantange!! Oh yeah were making "progress".At least with Ted we would be better prepared.Garth Snow belongs with Mike Milburry on the unemployment line because his fingerprints are on this crime scene that plays at the coliseum.I think I know why Comrie's hip isn't up to snuff two words "Hillary Duff!!!".March 4 can't come sone enough for this guy. "Help me Mister Wizzard!!!!.

The guy is nut's, plain and simple.

We're having fun ??? Um why not think about your suffering fans and the money they dish out so you boys can have some fun ?

Scott, it is true though, when the camera goes on you as your team blows another game, I can see the joy on your face, the happiness and pride.
Not to mention the F Bombs your always dropping behind the bench.

Pllllllleeeeeeassssssseeeeeeee eee, spare us the bull ship !!!

It is a joke.
I am sure Mr. Wang is happy and having fun too !!!

As a third string goalie during his career,i think he played too often without his mask,or maybe he just needs a effing lobotomy, what a dumbass!
