Wang makes me sick.
sigh.

the islanders HAVE offered him a one way deal. he turned it down thinking he was worth more than the guaranteed $500,000 that contract would pay him.

And he IS worth more than $500,000.

It's a shame the board of directors couldn't see that.

you're entitled to your opinion...some agree with you and others don't. this whole thing has been beaten to death on the isles board if you want to have a look.

Do you have a link to the Isles offering him a $500k one way deal? I haven't heard that. If it is true- Bergie is worth more than the money the committee was offering. I think it was a slap in the face that they signed Hilbert and Simon and could not even give him a one-way. Bergie has every right to walk away. Wang and Co should take a long hard look in the mirror after this one.

It was first reported by Brooks:

It was also heavily implied in this TSN article:

whether its bergenheim's stubborness or wang's (i'd prefer to blame this moron), it's poor asset management by the isles to let an NHL ready talent take years off of his development when he can help the team now.
