After reading Lighthouse hockey's recap of last night's debacle I found out that the Bruins Broadcast crew add one more insult for Islander fans.
One last note: To the always professional broadcast team at NESN, who stated to the country that the Islanders should be moved from the New York area, that Long Island isn't a hockey town, and that the Isles probably only have two fans watching- Stop by this site sometime and say hello. I'm sure the TWO fans the Islanders have, that stop by here daily to discuss their favorite team, have a thing or two they'd like to discuss with you. Keep it classy, Boston.http://www.lighthousehockey.com/2011/11/20/2574835/recap-bruins-6-islanders-0-turn-on-your-heartlights#storyjump
Long Island is a hockey market. Tell me another fan base that has withstood the torment Islander fans have. We have stood by our team after eighteen seasons without a playoff series win, an owner who was a fraud, owners who destroyed the talent base once they couldn't get an arena, Mike Milbury and his terrible trades, and much more. Islander fans are waiting for a reason to embrace this team again and sadly it doesn't look like it will happen this season. Enjoy your fair weather fans Bruins, because once you start losing again your arena will be empty like it was during your last down turn. Next time Boston is in town let's show NESN and Boston what type of hockey market Long Island really is.
