Please, fact is he just re enforced the stereotype that the Islanders are a joke which ifanyone with an ounce of credibility would listen to the guys who are EX-Islanders, they would know that they all had nothing but great things to say about their time in the organization.
Is Wang eccentric? Uhm, yeah and guess what, many billionaires are. He went the route of throwing money around and all it got him were big buyouts and at best a first round playoff ouster all the while bleeding millions of dollars.
Does Wang want to develop the real estate surrounding the coliseum? Well knock me over with a feather, you mean the man wants to make this a profitable venture as well as keeping the Islander healthy for the long term, THAT THIEF.
Bottom line is here is a guy(Miller) who watches at most 10 Islander games a year but has the balls to preach of how terrible we are, boy he really went out on a limb there. What did he do, look at our record the past 6 years? He couldn't even acknowledge that we were one of the best teams in the league since late December, dismissing it as another team out of it playing loose. Stellar.
What was he saying when Pttsburgh was bottom 5 for 5 year and bottom 2 for 2? I guess only the Pitt's/Hawks and Tampa's of the hockey world can use this method successfully.
This bum said nothing we didn't know a long time now, yet some are holding him up as a hero for speaking the truth, get a grip people.
We've had a nice second half and a glimpse of silver lining. Nothing really to see here and lets not ourselves bring the storm clouds back that have hovered the Meadowbrook for far too long.
