This is what it has come to for Islander fans........
A 30 year old fighter who has never played a game in the NHL who has been retired for two years, 15 arrests in less than two years. Had anyone thought to include in the story, how many goals he has scored throughout his AHL career?

I feel bad for him and his Dad but this is going to be another long year.

I understand the above poster's frustration, but Sugden will probably play harder than 90 percent of the roster that we had last year, so if he makes the team, more power to him.

That is one of the most ridiculous stories in Islander's history. This used to be one of the classiest organizations in all of sports and know a criminal is going to be a fan favorite? Simon was ostracized and banished for being a brawler but he wasn't a criminal. Is Garth worried about getting fans in the seats? Lets just lace up Tito Ortiz & Chuck Lidell. It's so difficult to stay loyal to this team with this continuous stream of nonsense. Lets get some hockey players and score some goals. There's an idea.

Great story about a guy who has turned his life around. Bad guy becomes a saint. Should be a movie. Hope he makes the team. I'll be the first to buy tickets.
