Wang most likely would have been for those moves. 50-60 point veteran forwards are not a rarity.
As much as everyone would like to blame Wang, Snow is still at fault here. Like I said in my earlier post, and have said, the Islanders are in a position of strength right now regarding their prospect pool. Snow needs to utilize that and make a deal. You can only play and hold onto prospects for so long before they lose their value. Don't get me wrong, I don't want him pulling a Milbury and completely emptying the cupboard. A package of a 1st rounder, A,B level prospect (Nelson, Lee, etc), and Comeau is a starting point to get a player that Islanders need.
Going into this season with the lineup they have at the moment, it's looking like another lottery pick.
