Islanders Gameday: Where the Wild things aren't - Lighthouse Hockey

Everyone should read this article. Seriously. Dominik did a great job taking a look at our squad. "What once seemed like proper, patient, ground-up expansion franchise husbandry now seems like complacency. They rarely make the splash to try to push Lemaire's team over the hump, and the combination of letting free agents Brian Rolston and Pavol Demitra go, followed by the inert handling this year of UFA and original star Marian Gaborik, gives the franchise the appearance of treading water while rolling in that market's sellout machine. Not that long-term deals for those three are the answer, but the team knew it had to get offense from somewhere." "As a fan of some recently very bad teams, I know all too well how last place sucks. But worse than that is the constant, nagging feeling that you're not headed anywhere. Watching Lemaire/Risebrough from the outside, it's hard to read if there is an anywhere in their future. Personally, it again makes me happy that Garth Snow chose the aggressive Scott Gordon for his franchise restart rather than a stringently defensive coach."
