All I can say is enjoy the team you guys have now because the crap is gonna hit the fan after the year is over. At the very least, this should get Holmgren fired, so at least there is that to look forward to. Simply unbelievable something like this could happen in the NHL, especially when everyone saw the potential trouble it could cause with the Hawks just last year. Wow.
People have been saying the same things about many other guys that get waived, and I've yet to see the scenario you've described occur. The Pens, Rangers, and Devils are close to the cap, and the Islanders don't like to spend money.
