Well another trading deadline has come and gone and the Islanders once again did absolutely nothing. We traded Andy Sutton maybe one of our best defenseman away for a pick. What in the world? I guess Garth Snow knew that he would not resign here after the year. I question though why they did not trade Roloson or why not Bergenheim, Hunter, Gervais just to name a few. I am disappointed but also excited in a way. This team looks pretty good. We have a lot of the pieces there and just missing a few players to make this team complete. There was no reason to trade away the future or even the picks as the Islanders are trying to do this rebuilding project correctly. Either way though it would have been nice to add someone to that puzzle for the playoff run. Only being 5 points out of a spot means that we are still very alive, but the question remains did Garth do the right thing not trading and trying to get better for this run? Only time will tell

I am an avid Islander fan and I tell it the way it is. If the Islanders are playing bad well there is no sugar coating it. I live on Long Island and have been a fan since PAt Lafontaine got traded.
