Not that anyone needs more proof, but the Isles are a pretty messed up franchise.
Larry Brooks reports old GM Mike Milbury represented the Islanders at Mike York’s arbitration hearing (login info.).
I guess Garth Snow went from backup goalie to backup GM.
Speaking of screwed GMs, the Devils Due blog has a nice roundup of the Devils’ situation regarding Scott Gomez. Basically, unless the arbitrators go crazy, whatever the talented forward gets is going to be too rich for New Jersey’s capped-to-the-hilt blood. So New Jersey has to unload Gomez, ignoring the fact that the whole league knows New Jersey can’t afford him.
This has nothing to do with hockey. I just love that ROCKSTAR’s Brooke Burke has a blog.
