In recent years, I've noticed that people get unhappy when their team loses to the Islanders.

I was just about to post some parts from this article. There is some wild stuff in there, but I like calling them out for getting paid and then disappearing.

“We are a stars-driven league, and our stars aren’t getting it done,” Lites said. “It’s embarrassing, and no one writes it. Write it!

“These guys are not good enough. They’re not good enough for me, they’re not good enough for the owner, and they’re certainly not good enough for the general manager, who I can’t speak for, but it’s not good enough for the job he’s done,” Lites added. “But we’ve had meeting after meeting after meeting. The accountability on the ice is not there. These guys were signed to big contracts because they were the third- and sixth-leading scorers in the National Hockey League over the past five years. They get their money, we expect them to not be outplayed every game we play in. And if they were as good as they’ve been in the past we wouldn’t be having this conversation.”

Wow forget about keeping it inside the team. This was another paragraph I liked

“I take a lesson from Bob Gainey here. He said you’d be really successful in this league if you never gave a poop about being invited to players’ daughters’ weddings, and that’s what I think,” Lites said. “I don’t give a (frank). I’m a year-to-year guy and I’ll be damned if a guy who has been as good to me as Tom Gaglardi — as good to this franchise — isn’t getting results, and those players aren’t getting it done. I’m telling you, we are gonna run through a GM who does everything he can to make the team better because we aren’t getting results

I like it. (frank) keeping it in the team. To much of that turns into a Garth Snow situation. Internalizing is definitely not always the answer especially when it’s out in the open. Kudos to these guys for airing out the obvious that every fan can see instead of hiding from it. Not saying the delivery was optimum for most (for me it was just fine😂) but good on them none the less.

I also like it. Your big players get paid big money they better produce.

I'm glad the Isles don't have to play the Stars in their next game, or again this season.

Eberle and Clutterbuck are both out tonight vs Ottawa. Ho-Sang to take Eberle’s spot alongside Nelson and Lee. #Isles

We need more passion from ownership like this. Would love to hear talk like this just once from the Jets owner.

Me too, I mean they are paying these guys to perform and they are not. You and I get fired if we don’t perform.

Yeah they’re most likely going to be an angry bunch. Either that or they’re going to be a bunch of wussies and roll over. So they may do good or not. That’s my prediction.
