is not strange that they held this press event without the coach, rather than wait for him to straighten out whatever it was he was dealing with?

I think it's more strange that they would hand Guerin the 'C' when he probably hasn't met half the team, and he hasn't even bought a house yet. Let the Captain emerge over the course of the season, why put the additional pressure on him? I hope this doesn't turn out to be another blunder...personally I would have preferred to play with a couple of 'A's and see who the team selects. It could be Guerin; it could also be Hunter or Sillinger...

Are you kidding me!!! This team will get eaten up in their own division, look at what the N.Y. Rangers, Penguins, and Flyers have done. I don't know about most, but Comrie and Fedotenko will not strike much fear in most opponents. Jon Sim, what is this his fourth team in the last three years? Guerin, great player but vanished for San Jose in the playoffs. There are to many ifs and hopes.

Yeah, Guerin & Comrie are just better than Smyth, Blake and even Yashin and Kozlov. Bullsh!t !

there arent bad moves, but Snow is just feeding us a line of sh!t.

Its a start, but there are still a lot of spots to fill including sining some of our own FAs and RFAs. You can't let the Rangers sign Asham.

Totally agree with TheMetalChick. Everyone loved the Smyth move at the end of last season. Now that Smyth has moved on everyone is on the bashing wagon saying it was a bad trade. Blake shot his load last year and did NOTHING in the playoffs. Getting rid of Yashin was addition by subtraction, some of the kids can be given some ice time to prove themselves.

Fedostinko should be immediately placed in the NHL's substance abuse program. if you can't score 25 with Lecavalier or Richards, you are not going to do it with the crap that skates with the islanders.

"I can score 25, 30 goals," Fedotenko said. "In Tampa, I didn't have that chance because I was in more of a supportive role."

That's funny considering he was given a spot on either Vinny Lecavalier or Brad Richards' lines. If he couldn't score there, do you really think he'll score 25-30 for the Isles?

And he was only put in the supportive role when Torts figured out he couldn't be relied upon on a regular basis to put the bisquit in the basket.

These guys are going to play very well. If you guys like the Flyers, Penguins and Rangers signings so much go root for them and go complain on their blogs. Your constant vitriol is childishly stupid and ignorant. Nice job Mr. Wang, Mr. Snow, Mr. Nolan and (always No. 1) Mr. BOSSY!

Im actually very disappointed with Islander fans. Im happy with the moves and I really dont think there are that many holes to fill on this team. There are a couple but its not like the team we have now cant make the playoffs. Blake, Kozlov, Smyth, Yashin and Poti scored a combined 94 goals for an Islander team that made the playoff last year (anyone who counts the goals Smyth scored in Edmonton last year is a moron because they didnt help us win any games last year). The 4 guys the Islanders just signed this month totalled 85 goals between them. I think everyone needs to be satisfied what has been done and the couple of moves that Garth will make before the season and wait for the season. If the Islanders bomb, then you can complain all you want

Smyth didn't seem to add all that much to the Isles when he came and I thought the Isles played their best hockey when Yashin was hurt and not in the lineup.Maybe Garth is right. Maybe they are better than last year. I sure hope so!!I'd love to see one or two of our "draft" picks, Bergy,Noke,Tamby or Nielsen make an impact next year.Other than DP, our draft picks haven't produced any impact players. Souray would really help the power play and be an interesting addition.But realisticly,who would you rather have, Crosby,Staal and Malkin,Spezza,Alfredsson and Heatley, Drury,Gomez and Jagr,Parise, Elias and Gionta or Guerin,Tank and Comrie? If you said Guerin,Tank and Comrie ,you really are an Islander fan!!!!GO ISLES

MetalChick...Smyth never once gave us a shot...Garth did his best, but the Smyth Family was heading home, or at least in the same time zone. The pressure on Blake with his new deal, he's gonna fail, bigtime. I like what Garth is doing,,,I like it a lot...big time D on it's way.

The flyers, those trades they made were good but the salaries were OVERPAYING & people criticized the Isles!!! OH Yeah, Note to the flyer gm, Your goaltending Still Sucks & You never figure it out & Never will.

The pens, Nice lineup!! crosby IS Still a crybaby & their goaltending is Weak also..

I don't mind the signings, it's something that had to be done. I do think, however, that Hunter deserves the "C". He's done everything that a team could ask for regardless of who he was surrounded by.

this team just decided to pay four players who are worthless
Guerin passed his prime a long time ago and the other three are terrible
Rangers and Pens will tear up this division easily
Garth Snow will be fired sometime this year no doubt in my mind
