The 4th line was sure fired up! Martin going after Burns. Does Burns fight?

Definitely Bush League. Hopefully Toronto will take a look at that one.

I missed the end of the game. Disappointing loss after a great win against the Kings. Robin continues to look good.

Agree, after the BS the politicians put him through most would have said phuck it and moved or sold the team.

Also, while many complained that he was cheap, they forget that, when he first bought the team, he basically gave his GM (Milbury) a blank check and instructions to build a winner. Unfortunately, Milbury blew most of it by giving Yashin $90 million.

R.I.P Charles Wang. Had he not bought the team, the smart money says The isles would be in a different city right now. His greatest feat was keeping the team on LI in New York. Despite all the wackiness and nonsense, it is keeping the team in NY that he should be remembered for.

Agreed. You can take issue with a large chunk of what he did once he kept the team here but if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have it to complain about.

Can anyone here recommend any titles concerning the history of the Islanders? I’m guessing there aren’t too many options, but any in particular that I should look for?

I don't know of any but I never really looked. I don't want to be reminded of the last 25 years. There is a great ESPN 30 for 30 on con artist John Spano buying the team with no money.

I've never read any books on the subject, but Alan Hahn used to be a pretty good beat reporter on the team for Newsday, and I believe he wrote a book or two.

He was very good actually I forgot about him. He was objective unlike Staple.

The one that I know if is called "Will the Islanders Make the Playoffs?", it's 476 pages of pure Islander hockey bliss. It is an eclectic mix of armchair general managers, coaches, scouts and analysts who have all the answers to all that ails the NY Islanders. It's a NY Times bestseller...I think.

Classy move by the Rangers before the start of their game against the Flames. They had a moment of silence to mark Charles Wang's passing.

Already read it I’m afraid. Didn’t know it was Islanders history though. Thought it was a Hunger Games/50 Shades ripoff hybrid.
