Had the “ISLANDER” version of the New York Hockey Report last night… Had a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I did it solo, because my buddy, Patrick Hickey did not make it.
However, I had Billy Jaffe as my guest. We had a nice 20 minute conversation, about all things Islander, as well as the coverage he had during the playoffs.
Thanks Billy, I really enjoyed our conversation, and I know that I can get him again…
So – we believe the following:
1. Filatov is on the radar screen big time… I hope he comes.
2. Dubie should land in a good spot (we are hoping for Vancouver for his sake – being close to home).
3. JM Liles would be a nice fit for the team.
4. Billy would like the team to be younger, and build that way…
Had a lot of IM’s and messages from folks.. It was a great time… Thanks to all for listening!
Tomorrow is the draft party at the Coliseum. Garth is off to Ottawa with a bunch of jerseys… Which one will he give to the next pick? Tune in and find out.
Randolph.. should he have been let go? I dont think so. This team is an embarassment! I want to say more, but I want this blog to be PG rated.
I just hope that the team rebounds… (They have won 3 out of 4 – so that is a step in the right direction)
If you are at the draft party tomorrow – say hi!
