Maple Leafs blog/reporter insults the Islanders organization


Damien Cox writes for a "spin" column for the Toronto Star. He wastes no time taking a very cheap shot at the Islanders in his breakdown for the Leafs opponents tonight at the Air Canada Center.

From his "the spin" column - October 18, 2010

The Strangest Franchise

 

By most any measure, the once proud New York Islanders are a failure of a franchise. They're still in the NHL, but barely, it seems.

Wow...your team gets off to a 4-0 start and now you can start to insult other organizations who despite the Leafs having 5 extra seasons on them since expansion have won FOUR LESS Stanley Cups than the Islanders over that time.

Stanley Cup tally for Organizations

Since Expansion (1967-68)

Islanders    4

Leafs           0

Add to that the Leafs only claims to fame the last 44 years was the fact that their two biggest playoff series wins came against the Islanders which include the 1978 Semis and the 2002 Quarters.  Are Leafs fans that jealous of the Islanders???

Taking a cheap shot at the Islanders for their lack of payroll is just not something class people or organizations do. Anyone who has half a brain understands the Islanders are being hamstrung by their own town which is making it impossible for them to get a new arena and start making money instead of owner Charles Wang losing about $30 million a season.

We'll see how much of a "Failure" we are when we end their perfect season tonight...

Lets go Islanders.
