Islander fans are making way to much out of this. Let's try to keep this in perspective. This is Timander were talking about here not Hamrlik. The same guy who has cleared waivers more than once. We gave a fourth round pick for a year of service. Now we recoup a seventh rounder and clear payroll for a guy in Ronning. Ronning has already earned the difference between a fourth and seventh with helping the Isles get a win against Ottawa and providing a stabalizing presence to the powerplay and youngsters.
I hate many of Milbury's moves just like the next guy, but to trash Milbury on this minor move is going over the top. This seems like a case of one having Anti-Milbury blinders. It has becomes so common place to bash Milbury that any deal is looked upon as bad even if it is really inconsequential.
