You're trying to tell me that those three solid dmen I listed didn't help the Islers get their decent offensive numbers? I suppose it was because of your scoring machines like Asham and Weinhandl. Gimme a break. Kvasha and Yashin are motivational leaders that will lead you to three Cups; they're the epitome of character players.

If I'm Gillet I wouldn't let Gainey trade Montreal's roster for the Islanders for all the tea in China.

Luckily, Aucoin is not a rose-coloured wearing Islander fan that actually thinks the club will be highly competitive over the next four years - he's heading to Montreal, where they will actually be making the playoffs.

In a week, if you prove to be wrong about this, you'll be called on it.

Whether the isles had Yashin on their roster or not,I wouldn't want them overpaying Aucoin.

and $4m for a very good,durable defensemen is overpaying.

on the Habs board,there's a thread with a link to an RDS.ca article.Seems the Habs have pulled out of the Aucoin race,saying he wants too much money.

what next?
Now that Foote's gone, Neids or Aucoin and Domi.

And a vet goalie.

I seem to have misplaced my checkbook.
