Let's face it, our Islanders just aren't a good team, not a playoff team

Seriously? Kind of cruel to revive this thread....

At the time we were playing miserably, we weren't showing any chemistry, and we were not winning big games. At that time, we sure as hell weren't very good and not a playoff team.

Not really fair to revive this at all...you should be ashamed seawolve. I know you are excited, but geez, this wasn't a non Islanders fan ragging on us.

Bad message board mojo to dig up old threads just to troll.

I think scott99 has an award coming to him if he's humble enough to nominate himself for it.

I gladly eat crow, but read the comments in this whole thread, I may have been the originator of this thread, but A LOT of people agreed with me. I give props to the folks who still thought this team had a chance to make the playoffs. Who'd think the Isles would beat the Rangers to a playoff spot ? All I can say is, wooohoooo !! Isles are in !!!

thank god i didnt post in this thread!

if i had, i woulda let off my steam about how bad this team is, how they could never make the playoffs and how they shouldnt even try, just tank from starters.

In hindsight that probably was the wrong tactic

Sorry Dutch --- accurate at the time, Im sure.. but funny now, in light of the past 12 games and our current seeding.

And when they have a bad stretch, it will be accurate again. Then they'll refind their scoring touch and it will be funny once again.
