COOL? So Islander fans if you haven't already put a gun to your mouth,out of depression and bottled up emotion. Yes, that's how we start our day following a loss, right? Well welcome to the new age. Where the last stay last and the winners always win. The standings never change. Why is Garth still pursuing draft picks and prospects? Can someone please explain this drunken man's logic? Half of our defensive corps are mediocre at best and if you, as an entrusted Islanders fan, think that will fix all of our problems. Baby dinosaurs/draft pks cannot lead the team, because they must develop and mature in their habitat. If they leave the nest too early they could be eaten. It's a gamble regardless only if your names end in Crosby, mackinnon. In all honesty we need mature blood. Why not add a better skilled rental with an actual role then make it into a chemistry experiment. Garth has done this before in his "botched experiments" leading to moments envisioning sugar plums and the Jonas brothers reuniting, which he never rationalizes, entirely. Riddle me this, is there not one single player out there who wants to sign with us or to have only saw free agency as an out?
