Pity the poor fans and players in Long Island and St. Louis. The Islanders apparently have gone into a catatonic trance in terms of filling the role of GM vacated by Mike Milbury, who will be lurking upstairs in a new management position. The Blues are awaiting final approval from the league on the team's sale to Dave Checketts. Both teams are drifting aimlessly with the entry draft less than a month away and free agency set to begin July 1. Under current GM Larry Pleau, we know the Blues are working as though it's business as usual. But it would be extraordinary if Pleau remained after the ownership is confirmed, and it makes little sense to have a lame-duck regime making the most important player decisions in the team's history, including their first No. 1 overall draft pick.more
