Streit and now Okposo, sucks to be and Isles fan.  Those are two huge hits.

Are the Isles making an early run to outdo last year’s Oilers?

Unbelievable bad luck already for the Isles.

You know what pisses me off the most about that state of that franchise?  Mike Milbury’s tenure aboslutely destroyed that team, he’s set them back 15 years by being involved with the Yashin and DiPietro deals while trading away LOADS of oustanding talent for garbage.

Yet he’s brought in on two national networks (CBC and NBC) to share his wisdom with all of us “privileged” viewers on a weekly basis.

I getcha, Leo.  I think Wang ought to be just as accountable.  I thought he made a great hire in getting Neal Smith as his GM only to fire him not more than month later due to “philosophical differences” and then replace him with Garth Snow.

Milbury on national TV is a waking nightmare for Islander fans. The guy will just not go away, its like having an ex-wife that continues to sleep in your bed.

I enjoy Milbury for his propensity to make utterly ludicrous, invective, and offensive statements to his fellow contributors, but that’s about it.

Losing Okposo and Streit is a massive hit to the isles. Tavares also loses his most skilled linemate, which puts even more pressure on him while simultaneously making it more difficult for him to live up to the hype.

Better hope Moulson’s success last year wasn’t a flash in the pan.

They better get an exorcist.
