LARRY BROOKS GETS IT RIGHT ON NYISays season cannot be about the Lighthouse Project

Point Blank’s fundraising drive with Pat LaFontaine’s Companions in Courage for Nassau and Winthrop hospitals is now over $4,000 and continues all week. PLEASE DONATE!

 

The future Hall of Fame columnist for the Post becomes the first mainstream writer to put in the newspaper what we’ve been saying for months. Forget about the Lighthouse – if a shovel was to hit ground tomorrow, it’s still years away. Stop giving longshot political candidates free advertising on your scoreboard when fans are paying to watch a hockey game.

 

Invest in skilled hockey players. Stop making excuses. Stop creating self-fulfilling prophecies. Stop selling Joey Mac and Yann as the problem last year. Stop talking about prospects who are either nothing special or 2-3 years from having an impact. Take advantage of the gifts of John Tavares (el foldo ’08-09 + lottery win) and Kyle Okposo (drafted while Neil Smith was GM). Put some players around them. Run a professional hockey team. Okay, Larry might not have said all of that. I am.
