--- In Islanders-Soundtigers@y..., "Kevin Hasbrouck" <payton@s...>
> Bobby Holik signed a 5yr 45 mil. dollar deal with the Rangers>>>
Another disgrace for the NHL. His comments indicated more players
will be following him too. For the moment, the good news is that he
is not a big-time scorer and they paid a lot for his services and
this could backfire. No team should touch Nedved and stick them with
that contract and force him to play left wing. We got a bargain with
Peca by comparison. I am kind of surprised Holik sold out to the
Defense is about team, not one player. His game and numbers could
suffer in Manhattan because it's a different system entirely. But I
cannot blame him, he wanted the payday and to stay local, anything he
says about winning a championship now is just not true unless Guerin,
Amonte, Kasparaitis and Chelios are joining him.
I cannot see any way the Rangers do not sign Kasparaitis now that's
it's clear the Islanders are not players for his services and going
by Milbury's comments he is not a player for anyone and all this talk
about one more move was just that. Last night he mentioned Trent
Hunter playing alongside Yashin and signing Weinhandl. If that's the
case do not lead the fans on like this or say we tried for Amonte and
he wanted more than we could offer.
And now Van Impe was set free too.
