So many things here to admire -- no ads on the boards, older style nets, older SMALLER equipment, oh look! A KICK SAVE!!!

You young'ins know about that?

thanks for the pick me up, but it actually has served (through no fault of yours my friend) to depress me even more.

we will never get back to those times. i was just a fan, i didnt know what kind of money anyone made. nor did i care.
I didnt know the Islanders had no money, i didnt know who was the top prospect in th AHL was and if he was going to be a bust.
and I truely believed every year that we had a shot at the cup (well at least we made it to the playoffs almost every year when i was a kid)

now instead of hearing things like : Shot, Save, Fight, during the hockey report, i hear crap like cost certainty , buyout, salary structure. its like being in a meeting at work
