I know this might sound funny, but as I awoke this morning I was one happy Islander fan. Why? Well lets face it the Islanders are not going anywhere any time soon, and I really want a top three pick in the draft. I was rooting for the Rangers in this game and boy I was not disappointed.
Sean Avery was his normal punk self. Getting into every ones head. What I dont understand is why the Rangers are the only team that likes this guy. Every one else in the league stays away from him like he is a plague or something. He did do his job even before the puck was dropped. I mean the Rangers are really not in the race eitherbut I guess they are still trying.
It seemed to me that the Islanders just did not want any part of this game. Heavily out shot, out played and just looked flat. Roloson was hung out to dry as his defense most of the night just watched the Rangers skate all over the place. Gervais like usual looked lost out there. We lost Dustin Kohn to injury thanks to Mr. Avery. It was just a huge disappointment all around and I am sure that the players feel the same. They have not scored for like almost three games. This team just seems like they have given up and feel there is nothing left to play for. Well in that case I am happy cause we will get yet another great pick and hopefully this team will be a lot better last year.
