The Islanders' dynasty era netminder is a legend because of his win total and his battlin' style. But that's with 30 yeras of hindsight and history behind him. What would hockey media say if he...

Billy Smith manned the Islanders crease for two decade, and the club has spent the next two decades sifting through injuries and illnesses searching for his replacement.

Billy Smith apparently helped Kerry Fraser's latest blog post

From the emails sent to Fraser, I found this sentence the funniest: I think if any suspension was warranted in the Lucic-Miller incident it's that it would be Ryan Miller who should have received one. (Homerism at its best?) Billy Smith's responses are as one would expect. Lucic wouldn't have skated away from that incident if Smitty was in net.

Kelly H. and the HNiC were looking at a video of Billy S. slashing Lindy Ruff in the eye. Found it on You Tube. It was in a 1980 playoff game at the Coliseum with the Isles on the PK and leading 3-2. His point of reference was a slash by Anderson on Marleau. The relevant part starts about the 1:15 point. HNIC clip: http://www.youtube.com/user/HockeyHaven76#p/u/5/Lf80_M8B0Fc
