There's not just the long history of bashing some of the Islanders Hall Of Famers for just being on a good team, or taking pot shots at the Islanders for being a laughing stock (Despite the Devils once being called a Mickey Mouse Organization by some great guy whose name I forgot) but now he claims that the #2 most overlooked Mt Puckmore honoree is Mike Freakin Milbury? Yes, according to Wysh Mike Milbury is more overlooked then Roenick in Chicago, Guy LaFluer in Montreal or Hitchcock in Columbus. In what world should you honor a guy who basically destroyed a franchise for 15 years.
All hail the psychic powers of "Barry the Islanders fan." Puck Daddy revisits the premature Tavares jersey foul, which we -- er, Doug and I (Islesblogger disagreed) -- also found religiously suspect.
In case there is medicine to take, I've re-opened comments to that post and added my own. (Happy ending, stand by my knee-jerk religious beliefs - and, like Fletch, am not a big man.)
All in good fun. Either the hockey gods love Barry, or they've got something else in store. But I'll 'fess to owing Barry a beer.
As the draft hype/anxiety intensifies -- thank you for keeping us twisting 'till the end, Mr. Snow! -- Puck Daddy compiled a thorough roundtable of Isles bloggers (including yours truly) plus beat writer Greg Logan.
We'll have an open thread here for the draft Friday, plus the usual musings, news and season reviews between now and then.
Logan, going by what he thinks will happen, again projects Duchene. What I love about all this? No matter what, none of us will know for sure until Friday night.
