Looks petty after losing
I'm not sure on which play he got a stick to the head. When Davidson hit him?

I could've missed it. I flipped the Yankee game on a couple of times to check the score.

Not all Islander fans are like that. It's one guy, I believe, that's on here saying that stuff.
The officiating can be really horrible. I don't watch every Ranger game so I can't say how the officiating really affects the outcomes of Ranger games. I don't pin Isles wins and losses on officiating, but sometimes it's hard not to criticize them.
And Milbury, in conjunction with Maloney, did destroy the Isles. It wasn't a conspiracy, but yes he did.
Oh i completely agree with you. Milbury shouldnt even be allowed to sell a hot dog at a hockey game. The guy was a moron. I am just making light of 4 the records arguments all the time.

The NHL needs to do something about the officiating. Every game is a crapshoot

ok work is over. Should be a fun one tonight. Yesterdays game was way too lackadaisicle and a snoozer on both sides. Have a feeling rangers could lose tonight, we will see.

Its been fun isles fans, I shall be back on these boards next season, or if you want to talk hockey come by the rangers boards.

Good luck on Getting Stamkos. That kid is going to be phenomenal.

Bender its not a stretch. None of them are over the age of 22. ALl 4 players have shown promise. Okposo has only played 8 games. ALso dubinsky and Dawes have had much much better players to play with and learn from. Hey maybe those 2 will be better then the islanders prospects or vise versa. You really do not know yet bc time will tell with these very young promising players. Dont say its a stretch when the ranger$ have barely ever drafted someone good.

yeah i mean it wasnt anything vicious it was more of a out of frustration tap to piss off avery, i believe it was a few seconds before the little bs headlock fight

It was a dead game overall. Only thing i liked was jagr scoring the goals. That was the least exciting ranger islander game this year by far

The Rangers have the horses to go all the way but somehow they choke in the playoffs..Maybe their high priced super stars are too old and too fat to keep up with the younger players on the other teams..We'll see. In hockey if you lose just half a step you're toast..

I'm saying it's a stretch because they also could all be busts in the league.

You never know.
