    He is at the CBA negotiations to protect his 15 year turkey contract!

      He’ll probably suffer a season ending shoulder injury picking up a glass of water.

    I swear to God, Allah, and Jesus himself if they make Nabokov the backup I’ll kill the management myself!

    The sooner the Islanders are sold and relocated to Quebec City, the sooner it will be better for all. There’s simply no getting away from it … Wang is a mental case, his contracts are “idiocy” defined and the people of Long Island no longer care. Both Seattle and Quebec City should be in the NHL today and God willing, they “will be” before long ! :)
