Islanders Continue To Do What They Do

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

It isn’t quite accurate to suggest the Islanders are on a treadmill to obscurity, for the fact of the matter is Charles Wang’s franchise long ago arrived at that destination.

And it isn’t quite correct to state the team is on the road to nowhere, because general manager Garth Snow’s club is headed somewhere no one in the NHL has gone before since the league expanded to 30 teams in 2000 — a fifth consecutive bottom-five finish.

Not one of the 122 North American big-league franchises has made itself as irrelevant as the Islanders. The three New York City-based daily newspapers do not see eye-to-eye on much, but not one believes the Islanders are important enough to merit coverage with more than a passing glance.

continued plus some NYR talk too…
