And Kenny and AA were both very disappoiting.
One thing that is overlooked in all this hype with Aucion - he was great against the Leafs two years back. But, he was really bad against Tampa and Ottawa. And, in fact, the much maligned Janne N. was easily the best Islander dman agaisnt Tampa.
Anyway, the real issue here is not whether we should lock up Aucoin. Of course, it would be great if that could happen. But, he has shown no interest whatsoever in a longterm deal. Hamrlik, on the other hand, is negotiating one now.
I don't think there is any question that we would all like Aucoin to stay. I just don't think that is a very likely.
