If you need to consult a doctor due to Vanek-Induced Hypertension, here’s a list to make it worse.
The NHL Trade Deadline is tomorrow and the possibility of more exes makes Islanders fans itch. Sometimes it’s hard to let go or get over the separation.
With Minnesota adding to their collection of former members of the New York Islanders, it would be helpful to point out where other ex-Isles reside in the NHL. These players will be better than anyone on the current roster They’ll embody the “clutch”, “touch”, and “potential” they could never realize in Uniondale. Because that’s how life works, amirite?
IF, and that’s actually an if this year, the Islanders make a move the players coming in will never replace the players going out. Unless the players going out aren’t worth the hobo beans Garth Snow brought got in return. Selective reasoning!
So peruse this list for who you need to keep track of. Y’know, for the the rage. Pointless, pointless rage.
