I agree with that. They would have felt more inclined to save the team if it was worth saving. Instead they pulled the plug on a team that is on life support.

Can't even count how many times I heard people ask "Why should we save an irrelevant hockey team?" or something along those lines. And, the thing is, how do you even respond to that question? Because it makes no sense to me either.

In other news, I'm hearing more and more lately that the Isles twitter account is banning those who respond to them and question Snowang's direction of the team. Censorship at it's absolute finest puke.gif

Does Twitter have a koolaid button working yet? I understand it is a special order from Emperor Wang.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

My question is with all the big teams out of the playoffs the rangers have a good shot at going to the cup. If they win it then what? Are we still gunna sign the reasoners and pandolfos of the world? When do u put some pride into what u do. U run a hockey team. Ur a billionaire. Sell the team or make it better. Nothing Inbetween

When the Yankees win a World Series, it motivates the Mets to try and keep up. The Yankees dynasty in the late 90s was the catalyst for the Mets going out and getting Piazza in 98 and their subsequent resurgence. They also tried to do the same in 2010 although it backfired.

When the Giants won the Super Bowl in 07, the Jets responded with Brett Favre. This season after another Giants SB, the Jets responded with Tebow, Landry, and a solid draft. Maybe there will be more to come.

You can say whatever you'd like about those two teams. They may not be run correctly, they may not always make the right move. And maybe neither will do WHATEVER it takes to win. But it cannot be denied that the owners of those teams do want to win games and they at least make that attempt.

If the Rangers win a Cup this year or even go to the Finals, our owner will do NOTHING. The proof is in the pudding. He doesn't care about winning.

Good read on a REAL OWNER. Mike Ilitch, owner of the NHL Red Wings and Baseball's Detroit Tigers.

This is a most read for the Kool-Aid drinking, Charlie Wang apologists. He loses money blahblah1.gif blahblah1.gif blahblah1.gif blahblah1.gif blahblah1.gif , that's why he can't improve the team. Lighthouse meant, Wang spends on Isles blahblah1.gif blahblah1.gif blahblah1.gif blahblah1.gif blahblah1.gif .

Story is about the turn around of the Tigers and loses Ilitch took, year after year, so that "he" could get the Tigers to a place where he could make money. Second time he's done that in Detroit. First time was with the Dead Wings. Took years of loses to turn around the Dead Wings to reincarnate them back to the Red Wings. He even got Tigers a new stadium too with some help from the state/county tax payers, but Ilitch put up a majority of the financing himself.

That's how it works folks, when you buy a dead franchise. You takes loses to build something better down the road.

Cheap Charlie hasn't done "his" part. Which is to make the team better again.

The Detroit Tigers Are Roaring Again

It is time for Gary Bettman to declare the Islanders are in a State of Emergency and the NHL will simply
not allow the current ownership to maintain the franchise as currently neglected.

Wang and Snow can handle things! They're smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... they're smart and they want respect!

Yes, this puts it all in perspective and I wonder why anyone would even spend a nickel on this franchise until the attitude changes.

I posted all these facts on Imania and still had people painting Wang's face on the Sistine Chapel. Now? Some still deny he had any guilt.

What happens at CA is approved, ordered and directed by Wang or it does not happen. Period. So....where are we as a franchise? Who's to blame? Milbury? Nope. Make a splash, we get Yash and Peca. Make the team tougher after Toronto, we lose Mariusz and a lot of scoring help and go Wiemer. Lavy not a good element to Wang's lockerroom (remember the meetings?), we lose Lavy. Ozzie says no to a pay cut, we go with Golden Boy and megapads. Heat gets too much for Milbury, Wang replaces the lackey with someone desperate, but he's not desperate enough, so we fire him and get someone desperate. Now? Snow's autonomous.....

Or Wang knows enough to run a team with scraps and finish at the bottom every year with a top pick and some knowledge picked up from said players and our fearless GM puppet.

35 day months, 8th seed playoffs, someone wants to succeed without having to earn it.

"clearly it's Rick DiPietro's stupidity that's put the islanders in this situation getting into an altercation when a game was over..." Keith Jones on VS

"But the Coliseum became a repository for all the team's troubles, a convenient scapegoat. There were suggestions that no major free agent ever would set foot in such a decrepit place. We have two words for anyone making that argument: Fenway Park. History says free agents would play in an old boxcar if they got enough money and had a chance to win." - Mark Herrmann

Yep. And it's confirmed in that link that Chuck hires incompetent fools and puts them in powerful positions so he can pull the strings. Obvious that was the case with the Isles, but I didn't know he did that at CA and it makes sense now.
