The Joke that is the New York Islanders

The Joke that is the New York Islanders

Postby Bleacher Creature » 12 Sep 2006, 18:33

This team is a fucking joke. Maybe just maybe, Owen Nolan was going to bring some respectability back to this once storied franchise but no, not with this team. The Islanders continue to be the laughingstock of the league. We know who calls all the shots for the team. Wang and Milbury. Wang fired a knowledgable and experience gm in Neil Smith and hired a puppet who has no influence over the decision making, Garth Snow. Milbury is the real gm of this team.

Milbury tried to sign DiPietro (Dipi-ayto as Chris Russo likes to call him) to a 15 year contract last year but thankfully that deal didnt go through. After a mediocre and disappointing year by Dipi he is rewarded with a 15 year contract. A FIVE year contract wouldve been too much for him. He is an immature crybaby and will never be an elite goalie but yet he is set to be an Islander for the next fifteen years. This team is a fucking disgrace. I cant imagine what the next fifteen years are going to be like. Its going to be a nightmare with all the fucking Rags fans taking over the Coliseum four times a year and mocking DiPi.

If Gary Bettman actually cared about the fans he wouldnt let this deal go through. Sidney Crosby or Alexander Ovechkin wouldnt even get a deal like this. But somehow Rick DiPietro does. Only the Islaners could pull a move like this.

This season is going to be pathetic. I dont know what Wang is thinking. Hes a fucking retard who doesnt know a single thing about hockey. The Isles will have the lowest average attendance for the second straight year. The attendance at at least 50% of the games will be less than 10k. The only thing I can hope for right now is for Wang to somehow sell the team.

The Islanders also signed Victor Kozlov today to a one year contract. Good move.

I think that's pretty optimistic, and a tad presumptuous... pretending the NHL will still be around in 15 years..... :roll:

I hope DiPi is out for a while with his groin injury.

Islanders record when:

DiPietro starts: 0-3
Dunham starts: 2-0-1

DiPi's stats: 4.54 GAA, .879 Save %
Dunhams' stats: 1.81 GAA, .953 Save %

Or, as they'd say in hockey, a "6.3 million minute game misconduct".

Nice road trip for the Isles even though they lost to the leaves tonight. They went 3-1-1. DiPi is finally playing well. Yashin and Blake are playing great.

_, how the fuck does Darcy Tucker have 13 goals already? Unreal.

Sorry for the double post.

Great game for the Isles tonight. They dominated the whole game. Carolina had their first shot in the game at 1 minute point in the first period. The Isles outshot the Canes 20-1 in the first. Canes got destroyed by the Rags last night 4-0 and tonight lost to the Isles 4-2. Blake and Yashin played great again. The crowd tonight was great, first time all year.

Devils lost tonight so the Isles are only two points behind first in the division. Fridays game against Pittsburgh will be big.

:shock: WOW. Islanders got Ryan Smith. Huge trade.

They gave up a lot (three first rounders) but it will definitely be more than worth it if they resign him. This means that Blake wont be back.

Islanders defenseman Sean Hill suspended 20 games for USING STEROIDS. :shock:

Exactly what the Islanders (and the NHL) needed at this time.

Maybe this is why the Islanders have been getting screwed by the officials this series.

Islanders will pay Yashin $17.63M not to play for them.

A nice $2.2M per year salary cap hit for the next eight years should help the Isles right the ship. [/sarcasm] They're fucked. Sorry BC.

First they give a 15-year deal to a goalie who even if he lives up to the billing ain't worth it and then they throw that kind of money at a guy who isn't even their best offensive player and is essentially turning into Fedrorov 2.0? High comedy to say the least.

This is actually a good move by the Isles. Granted they are just making up for some other horrible decisions. Yashin was waaay overpaid and his salary prevented them from helping their team in other ways. Now maybe they can use the extra $$ to sign someone like Smyth or Drury, though most likely they will blow it on someone like David Volek.
