Not taking sides; just felt compelled to add Walt Disney's cryogenically frozen head to that.

What I am venting about is the lack of respect this team gets. With the NHL's own Facebook post highlighting the hit on Tavares (imagine if that was Crosby, it wouldn't even be covered like that) or the BS call on Reasoner....

If you can't see that, then I can't help you.
Crosby is one of the best players ever. Tavares is just a really good player.

If I could equate it to the NFL it's like comparing Tom Brady/Peyton Manning to Eli Manning... well Eli has had success so that's wrong but you get the idea I hope.

so one hit's OK on one guy but the same hit is forbidden for another. Yep. Lemieux used to get brutalized in the 1980's, before ninety percent of Pitt fans knew there was a team in Pennsylvania, let alone two, while Gretzky got calls if someone farted in the same circle as him.

Was that right? I guess so.....thus Mario's back issues. He wasn't supreme enough until Jagr got there?

This. Why should the Islanders be treated with respect when the owner doesn't treat them with respect? We have an all star center and respect him with a tin man on one side and the scarecrow on the other.
