Not sure I agree with the abuse you got, but I think you can understand why some Islander fans reacted strongly to your posts. You basically made the assumption (for various reasons) that the Isles were going to give away some of their most tradeable assets for nothing, and offered up a series of proposals which essentially had the Thrashers getting Parrish and/or Hamrlik for negligible return. I think you can understand why that got Isles fans annoyed.
