From Zachary Weinstock at MaxHockey.com:
Team projections on the collection of masochists set to slither into Nassau Coliseum Friday night indicate that at least as many Islander fans are willing to come watch their club draft an NHL talent with one sentence as are willing to come watch their club lose to NHL talent for 60 minutes.
And incase you haven’t heard, the building will be torn to crumbs if the Islanders don’t select John Tavares.
This might not even be a joke. Area lounge R.C. Dugans is offering $1 pints until midnight if the London Knights winger goes first overall. They’ll be 25 cents if he doesn’t!
So either way, it’s a night for George Washington adorned currency.
