Throwback - 1997

I was cleaning up around the house and stumbled across a New York Sportscene (February 2007) with Eric Fichaud and Tommy Salo on the cover. Wow, I thought, great find. This should be a fun read. Thinking back about the potential of these 2 "stud" goalies. It should be interesting what they predict for these kids. While thumbing through, I came across something better. It is pure gold that I thought alot of Islander fans would be interested in reading.

In the magazine, several pages in, is a readers thoughts page about the "New Ownership" coming in and their thoughts of the future of the OrganIzation. It speaks for itself. (click on the picture for full size)

It's always fun to see how things change in a matter of only a couple of years. In this case, within 3 years, there was a drastic change in the thoughts of the "Fan on the Street". The potential savior and smart businessman turned out to be a fraud, the GM was a hack, and the Arena is still up in the air. The saying, "the more things change, the more they stay the same" comes to mind.
