Another example of the incompetence that surrounds this team! Whats the point of playing him tonight? Is this Jack's attempt to move up the NHL standings and pad his coaching record. Jack your almost at .500 in 4 years buddy, keep going

Glad to see so much compasion and concern for one of our boys, we (almost)all seem to be in synch on this one and the sheer ineptness of this business organization.

But its good to have a brotherhood of sufferers and not have to go it alone or think "is it just me?" or are they really that stupid.

The only thing we really can do  is start some kind of pool to suport a party when Wang & Snow are finally gone. "Oh Happy Day!" "Our Day Will Come" "You Gotta Believe!"

Since no playoffs now let's look to the draft. Ekblad virtanen fleury and delcolle look at those guys. If you want go to my NHL draft page. You can see all the info that's needed. I really like virtanen. Good player. Check out what they have and let's talk

Playing Hamornic is like hmmmmmm Let's see ??????????

Like the jets Playing Sanchez in a meaninngless pre-season game?

Enough said.

See how simple that is Garth and Jack?

Any professional medical doctor would advise the organization (Wang/Snow) against playing Hamonic on Saturday given the extended break after the next game. So their medical staff should be questioned for such a foolish decision to clear him to play in this scenario.  That said, only a complete moron would let one of their top assets play on Saturday despite being given the all clear from the doctor. Showing care and compassion for Hamonic's long-term health is apparently lost on this franchise.  Wang and Snow are a couple of foul smelling turds.

So let me get this straight... Garth packaged his two big off season acquisitions, Bouchard and Regin, to the Blackhawks for a 4th round pick.  Way to go Garth!

No trades today as Wang approved Garth's vacation day.

This has become a train reck. I'm sad by this. The fans deserve a meeting with ownership and Garth. Actually we should demand it. We are paying the bills here and we need to know what the plans are going forward

I'll say I'm hurt by this. As a fan I'm totally in favor of a overhaul in coaches as well. A new coach would shake it up

Get him in game action. He can rest and get ready for the rest of the season during the break. About last night I'm at a loss for words. Usually I'm pumped up and really into it. But I'll tell ya this week has left me wounded. The game last night was horrible. I don't get it. We have all this talent and can't get it together. Baffles me big time. But I'll say this. Wang let mil bury kill the franchise for 10 years and he's letting this happen. I'm blown away that this can continue. I believe in the players but not mgmt. like I said im at a loss. I'll get over it though. Bring up LEE will help

I don't think they can deny him. If he's been given the all-clear then he can come back. I would hope that at least one or two (medical staff, coaching staff) people would have tried to reason with him but if I know hockey players, they just want to get back to it ASAP. So I'm thinking its all Hamonic.

I do think he should've waited though..

only this mickey mouse franchise would be dumb enough have their best young nhl defenseman play one meaningless game before a 2 1/2 week break coming off a substantial concussion

Ryan Sweeney

playing hamonic in one game before the olympic break and risking further injury makes WAY less sense than booing vanek...and im one of the few that don't think we should boo vanek.  this was a concussion, not a bruised hand.  the smallest hit could bring his symptoms right back. 


whats the rush here exactly?

Is Vanek still on the team?


Hamonic should rest .

The fans deserve a meeting? Did the Penguins fans get a meeting with management when things weren't going well for them? Did Chicago hold a meeting with their fans? No one holds a gun to any of our heads telling us we have to cheer for the Islanders! You won't get a meeting. I watched the game the other night on the Sportsnet feed here in Canada, you should have heard how many positive things the game announcers had to say about the Islanders. Yeah, they need to add some pieces to the back end and in goal, and if they can do that at the deadline or off season, the team will look much better next season.

@lyle ..... I heard Glen Healey and EJ Hradek rip mgmt and ownership on the same day this Thursday. 8 years to get to 27th overall? Yeah there are a lot of things to rave about. Like JT. And JT. And JT. And now Okposo. And JT.

Hey had the same feed as you did. And yes they were very positive. I'm not being negative one bit my Canadian buddy. I'm just still getting over this week with VANEK decsion and Amac. I was gutted by this The meeting is to have a time with mgmt. tell them our concerns. Communication with the fans is huge in my opinion. All this is , is my personal feeling. That's all. And no one is holding a gun I chose this team in 1978 and have never turned back and never will

@Lyle Odelein - Lyle, you USE to be so pleasant. What happened? Too much reading from the spinner's side has caused an almost finger wagging and belligerent post, just like someone we all admire greatly...

Just a little sarcastic lately. I realize fans have suffered for many years, but the fire Snow and Wang comments are getting old. Hamonic is healthy and ready to come back and management gets ripped because he's playing tonight…I don't get it?

It's been a long winter out here…off to Phoenix for some R&R next week. That should clear all the cobwebs. Lol
