He has been given multiple chances on the Islanders (and yes even on the pp), he has just failed miserably.
Thanks for the honest assessment.

No disrespect here, but to be objective: What NHL players have the Islanders successfully developed over the past few years? Bailey, Okposo and Tavares are still emerging, and will certainly be successful, but aside from that? *crickets*

I think you guys are rebuilding the right away, and be a solid team in a few years ago, but in fairness to Tamby he's never played for an organization that has a good reputation for player development, nor one where he has played alongside real talent. In Vancouver he has both.
