As for the "team is not playing for anything so winning isn't an accomplishment" theory, the oil were out of it by Thanksgiving(American or Canadian), why weren't they racking up the pressureless victories. I also didn't see the avs burning it up in Feb/March.

Wang is a strange man make no mistake about it. This is a man who spends more Islander dollars on youth hockey in China than on youth hockey on Long Island. I could go on and on about this but won't.

The forty days Neil Smith spent with the Isles was his only NHL job in about 15 years. Think about it.

Gord Miller could have spent 20 minutes talking about the owner and arena and it would have taken care of all the obstacles facing the team. The roster is one or two players and some more maturation away from competing.

Mottau, Jurcina and Eaton are spare parts and I'm not convinced Wishart isn't a year away from contributing.
