It just shows the lack of class that the Islanders Organization has become.
But they do have something to gain. They dont have a goalie right now. They think they may be able to get Nabakov for very little, and who knows, sign him next year. Ask the Oilers org. Do they want to tank it for the whole year.? No is the answer. Its not good for developing the team on a go forward basis.
There was no real downside to it as a hockey decision
