Thank You Milbury

Now I might sound insane, but hear me out... All of us Isles fans hate Milbury with a passion. He absolutely destroyed a once great franchise. But at the same time, because of his incompetence, we have John Tavares. If we never decided to rebuild when we did, we would not have him. We'd be another team thinking "man i wish he was on our team." But we were rewarded for our suffering in getting him. We have a young team that I love more than any other team we've had since I was born in 92. Without the rebuild, we would not be here. Maybe I'm too young to remember the great teams of the past, but I have to thank Milbury for sucking so much. Because without his crazy trades and awful management, we would not have the team we know and love today. The suffering was worth it. Now... It's time to bring Lord Stanley back where he belongs

Edit: I don't think you understand my point... It's not literally a thank you... I hate the guys guts, he's hurt our franchise so much. He's one of the worst GMs in NHL history. My point is that everyone says "we could have had chara/luongo/Spezza/etc..." But if we had them, we wouldn't have guys like Tavares right now, who I really don't think I'd trade for anything.

Sorry "Thank you" and "Dilbury" do not go in the same sentence.

The person to thank would be "Ryan Smyth" if he had signed with us, we would be still going. Since he opted to not resign, we lost 3 #1 picks essentially and Garth & Charles said it was enough and we needed to rebuild.

Garth deserves the credit albeit, JT was the consensus #1 pick that year. The Islanders team deserves the "thank you" for sucking bad that year.

That idiot should NEVER be forgiven EVER or even given a sniff of any kind of direct or indirect "credit" for anything but ruining this franchise and being one of the DIRECT reasons Long Island will lose this team after next season.

I BLAME this moron for most of the bad stuff that happened here and cannot stand the sight or sound of him.

Kinda like thanking Hunter for what he did to Turgeon...thanking Muller for his leadership...

Nice enthusiasm but you brought up the WRONG guy on a happy day in Islander fan-land.

The only management the deserves a thank you on the board is Snow. The waiver picks were "gimmes," but there is depth and talent at the NHL level, with a LOT more fighting upward in the pipeline.

It will always be argued whether he could have done more, but he assembled on hell of a hockey team despite one bigger hell of a handicap in Wang.
