Gotta admit, this page from the NYI website made me giggle like a school girl.
I keep expecting their heads to wobble back and forth.

Hilarious. Smyth got even uglier.

Maybe this will make people realize one man is not the Edmonton Oilers. He's a NY Islander, we still have a team in Edmonton. Let him go.

It's amazing how they got a life sized version of MAB.

Egads, Ryan doesnt look good in anything other than copper and blue (and red and white).

At least he got traded to a franchise with similar colors...

You can list half the NHL teams as jokes then.

I root for the Oilers because I live here. I also root for the Rangers because I'm from there. How is that lame?

Again, an Isles fan comes in and proves my point

hey I married an Alberta girl too but I didnt change teams, and just because an Islander fan calls you on your jumping teams like others change underwear is just what it is, Oiler fans would say the same, Ranger fans when you were there thought you were a fair weather fan anyway, thats whats lame, real fans stand by their team regardless of where they live. Thats why you're lame. Real Oiler fans see you as you are, don't think you're getting over on them, they are loyal and lifelong fans, something you know nothing about. And being an Islander fan since 1972, I know what Oiler fans are. We are linked as 2 of the greatest dynasty's ever. Even Gretzky credited the Isles as setting the example. and the Oilers followed that example to be probably the greatest squad to lace up the skates. Put down the Isles all you want, but I'll take Gretzkys kudos over yours anyday

What I really liked is the page where their prospect guy talked about how great all of their draft picks will be.
