Time to use this site for what its for

I, like many others check this site daily if not hourly. ( I work all day with a computer). I check it daily to finally read an article about my favourite team or an article about potential trades, and that is what this site is for.

From a Mad Isle Fan To a Mad Owner Regarding a Mad Mike

Charles Wang is the owner of the Islanders. He decided to keep Mike Milbury as his GM when he bought the team in April 2000. Here is a letter to Mr. Wang regarding Milbury.

A Variety of Topics to Talk About

Cujo gets treated unfairly by what’s supposed to be a classy team.

Are Jaromir Jagr’s words true?

Comrie to Devils? Don’t think so!

Peca a cheap shot, Isle’s dug a huge whole.

And…… It’s your decision to find out a special system to use for your Yahoo Fantasy Hockey Team.

Jagr trying to fix problems

Tracking the Jagr Story part III

Well, it’s being said that Jagr now told media he never wanted to leave Washington and was just upset his team was not doing well.

Could it be Jagr really loves Washington and feels bad? Or Could it be Jagr’s now putting on an act so that other teams don’t worry about his attitude in the locker room?

Seems to me as if either Jagr has lost his mind totally or just figured something out.

Milbury is getting itchy trigger finger.

From this fans perspective, it is Mike who should go. He has clainmed responsibility for the Isles 3 week slide after breaking up the “good ole boys” group that formed when the Isles took their team to West Virginia for training camp. This group that wore jeans and CAT tractor hats included Wiemer, Peca, Aucoin and some other veterans. Rookies couldn’t break into the group. Getting rid of Wiemer not only was supposed to save salary, but break this group up. The remaining players countered with “Members Only” t-shirts. There is obviously friction in that locker room. The Isles started very strongly winning 7 of their first 11, however they have won only 2 of their last 11 since Jason Wiemer was let go. They have lost 6 in a row.

CUJO on Waivers

TSN.ca is reporting that Ken Holland informed Curtis Joseph this morning that he has been placed on waivers. CUJO will not accompany the Wings on their trip through St. Louis and Toronto. In the event that CUJO isn’t claimed, he could be demoted to the AHL.

Could The Leafs be actually talking about Cairns, and More on Comrie

I was driving to lunch today when Howard Berger of the Fan 590 continued to mention that there have been talks between the Leafs and the Islanders. He reiterated that many of the reports are on Peca, but he also doesn’t understand why the leafs would want Peca with their glut at centre. However he did mention that JFJ has actually incquired about Defenseman Eric Cairns.
