Not only do we lose our own top free agents, but apparently we will not be signing any. Can anyone at Hockeybuzz or anywhere else please explain to the 5 remaining Islander fans what the plan is going to be?
Are they going to go with youth and try to build through the next 3 drafts a la Pittsburgh?
Are they going to get a bunch of reclamation projects for Ted Nolan who will only be here a year, and sign elsewhere for mega bucks a la Poti, and Kozlov?
A plan Mr. Wang. A plan Mr. Snow. Show us, please. Perhaps the website at Islanders.com says it all. "The Transition Game" which features the 4 swedes of the future. Not to knock these guys, some are showing they have real potential, but are they ready? Aint none of these guys Jason Blake, Victor Kozlov, Tom Poti and Ryan Smyth.
Hello....hello New York Islanders. Anyone home???
