This is just pathetic.  Can the Islanders cut him some type of deal where they give him so much of his contract and he retires?  At this point he has to be a huge distraction

The good news for the Islanders is that he’ll be off the books in…

Oh, wait.  Never mind.

Maybe Ricky shouldn’t have been wearing the ol Copper 2000 helmet. Nice job going retro, idiot.

With such an investment and history of Concuss, Wang should have made him wear a new Goalie Helmet.
