The Islanders this year have gone out of their way to make sure that they get the #1 dfart choice. I can easily understand why the NHL has issues with the Islanders. Sitting out actual NHL level players to get a look, or to give a chance to an AHL player. Please. This is called TANKING and it should not be allowed in the NHL. Playing a roster that is 20 mil under the minimum cap is crazy and I am not sure how they are able to get away with it. Playing 20 kids from the AHL team on the regular roster on the NHL team, Wow. The Islanders should be ashamed of themselves, abusing the rules and how can they look in the mirror and be proud of what they have done. I hope that they get hedman at # 2 and he never plays a friggin game in the NHL. That would be perfect.

Last night in front of all who attended the Islanders/Lightning game, when asked if he supports the Lighthouse project Oyster Bay Town Supervisor JOHN VENDITTO pulled a fast one, he stated the Islanders deserve a renovated Nassau Coliseum...sounds like John and Kate Murray have become allies against the Lighthouse Project. Weak John, really really weak.
Has Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto and Kate Murray become allies?

How high are your taxes in Oyster Bay, looks like John Venditto has no interest in helping out the tax payers.
John Venditto is a politician-
It costs him nothing to say he supports the Lighthouse project because his support will have no effect on how it turns out- The Lighthouse project is in the Town of Hempstead, he's from the Town of Oyster Bay- He's just politicking for himself as he knows there are Islander fans who live in his town-

You have no idea what the hell your talking about. Since Jan 19 the isles are 16-15-6 about the time when they went heavy on the youth movement. So what is your definition of tanking.
