It's ashame

Chris drury wasnt healthy enough to play. Because then we would add Captain clutch. Who was always a classy, organization first kinda player. Great to tutor our youth. Instead of a heartless European.

If yashin comes to the isles, I give it 3 months. I just hope it isnt #79 with the captaincy 2.0. Bc this isnt Mark Messier. He was a horrible captain. The last good captain we had was Michael Peca. I dont include Bill Guerin bc He was at war with management and Weight Was never healthy enough. Our next leader needs to be one who leaves his heart on the ice...puts it all out there.

Okposo, maybe Frans, A-Mac...who knows, maybe strome could be the one waiting in wings. I get we need veteran leadership. But bringing in Yashin will only set this franchise back. Would this mean dealing Bailey? bc where would we put him? Or part with frans for a defensemen? in that case...Id rather struggle and lose than give up a fan favorite for an overpriced Defensemen that we could easily get in De Haan whenever hes ready. We've waited this long to get into the playoffs...whats a little more? We got some good kids just in need of experience.

 

I thing every Islander fan will agree
