Just look above. You have an individual with some sort of control freak issue trying to tell hardcore fans to go away. Seriously, they need to get over themselves because they are nobody. Lol.
- my misunderstanding.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program - the team we all love returning to playoff action.

No apology necessary - we're all a little wound up from seeing the Islanders swing back around to respectability. Let's just hope that they can put the right punctuation on the end of the sentence and get into the big dance, preferably against a team they can upset.

(Not to get ahead of myself, but I'd say the Habs, Caps, and Pens - in that order. None of those series look like a losing sweep situation, IMO.)

Jesus Christ some of the fan's on this forum, now I know why i lurked for years....
No other team Chicago, Pittsburgh, L.A Kings had to deal with .....MIKE MILBURY during the listed rebuild's.

Come on this is Mike Milbury destroyer of franchises...

Ok time to put on my V. Malakhov jersey grab some scotch and ponder what the world would be like if Dale Hunter had not separated Turgeon's shoulder.

This issue is those who have been haters now have to contend with all the positives happening...their HF status is at stake- you know, whether or not they know anything about hockey. This is a hockey message board after all!

They have to hold the line and maintain that this team is not for real, that they haven't proved anything yet, that it's still been too long a wait...

The thing about being a hater NOW is that these last little protests are necessary in their metamorphosis. If they are to ever be HEARD here again, and if HF is to stay a big part of their lives, they'll need to change their tune. They know they will sound silly as the team continues to progress. They know they can't rail on Snow anymore, and are now going through the classic HF hater death throes...these are the last little whimpers.

Some haters will go away- usually to the message boards of other teams (Trottier) where their voices will have an audience. Some haters will make new accounts and join as "true blue" fans- watch in the coming days and weeks as the Islanders make the playoffs- there will be plenty of new accounts here.

But some- some haters will perform the necessary eating of crow.They will acknowledge that they were wrong about Snow. Some will claim they knew Bailey was the right pick all along.

Some will even start cutting their hair like captain Jack.

I have a question for you. Do you use the word "hater" so frequently in your everyday speech as well?
