I'm not an Islanders fan but this post is pretty dumb. The Islanders are not the only team that offered/signed a contract to a player that didn't work out.

Just about every "big ticket" free agent in the last 5 years that was thrown huge money and long term contracts have left their fan base asking "really?" within a couple of years. Especially when Jacobs and company fought so hard to bring the cap down next year.

$1.5, even for 16 years, isn't that big of a pill to swallow and a retirement contract I would love to have.
