These guys make it impossible to root for them.

That would be best for the team since the Isles don't have to pay him beyond this season. For the Ricky's sake, he should claim he has a debilitating injury and have the insurance on his contract take over.

Why do you guys take what they say in interviews seriously?

Garth can't say, "Rick has been garbage and we don't trust him anymore." It's just horrible PR to go the route of publicly throwing a player under the bus.

These guys are not under oath, they may even lie in interviews. *Gasp* I know.

Its not like Garth said a lot. He gave a canned one sentence response.

Why not just say he hasn't been playing well and we need a backup who is capable of doing the job. I don't think that's really throwing Rick under the bus.

Besides, I believe he does think Rick can be an all star again. I believe Rick will be back within a matter of weeks, and that infuriates me.

That is throwing Ricky under the bus. You just went out and said a goalie signed for 8 more years can't play as a little used backup. Do you not see the controversy in that statement? What he said is much safer, opens fewer doors, and is just plain smarter. The truth is irrelevant when it comes to PR.

What do we expect Snow to say?

A) He sucks and he can't handle the NHL's level of play

or

B) DP needs games to regain his form.

What should infuriate you and every Islanders fan is that moves is an indictment on Wang and his cap floor fiasco over the past several years. This move now clearly indicates DP remaining on the roster for cap purposes and to save Wang $. All of sudden when "burying a guy in the minors" now counts against the NHL cap, DP finds himself in the minors to "get in games."

Unbelievable how much Wang is a complete slumlord.

I'm not a Garth fan but I don't think he's dumb enough to really believe that. He's just either paying Ricky some lip service or hinting that Ricky will eventually be back (because Wang won't buy him out). Let's hope it's the former.
