15 Years Ago: The New York Islanders' tailspin begins...

Satan rides the bus

Poor Miro. That Bill Guerin's acquisition forced this is ... rich. As Hooks Orpik put it at Pensburgh: "So Miroslav Satan, he of 1012 NHL games and 721 points will be an American Hockey Leaguer riding the buses again. A league he hasn't seen since 1994-95 when he was a 21 year old breaking into North American hockey. It's been so long that the team Satan played for back then (the Cape Breton Oilers) has been defunct for now 13 years. Satan is a trooper for not pulling a Zigmund Palffy and jumping back to Europe when the going gets tough. But then again, he still gets his $3.5 million this year for the 65 NHL games and a few minor league games."

Ziggy Palffy is alive and well

Hats off to one Žigmund Pálffy (how do you like those diacritics on the Web, eh?), who has won his 2nd consecutive Slovakian league scoring title with almost a goal a game (53 GP, 52 G, 99 P). If I'm not mistaken, the European leagues are still stingier about giving 2nd assists, too. Come back, Ziggy! Much less clutching and grabbing in today's NHL, and the money's still good.
