I'm somewhat in the same boat you are...but I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum. I was devastated when Pierre Turgeon was traded to the Canadiens for Muller. It was like, 1994, and I idolized Pierre growing up. It was the beginning of the end for the Islanders, cuz everything surrounding the team collapsed after the Turgeon trade. The fisherman jersey disaster began that next season, the salary dumps, the losing records, the very messy ownership squabbles, etc, etc. And it adds salt to the wounds with how Muller was treated by/had treated the Islanders. It was just a disaster.
The Turgeon/Muller trade ranks as one of, if not the worst trade in Islanders history. And there are not many Islander fans that got over the loss of Turgeon. For me especially, it was extremely difficult.
If its any consolation, the Canadiens traded Turgeon for Shayne Corson... THATS RIGHT!!! YOU READ CORRECTLY!!! SHAYNE ********** CORSON!!!
now that hurt...
