    Seems Smith wanted to buy out Yashin's contract. The Isles owners said no. Smith tried to do it anyway, they gave him the heave-ho.

    Possibly the shortest GM Term in professional sports :lol

    Had I known that the job was open and they were going to give it to their backup goalie, I would've applied for it myself.

    I can't believe LaFontaine quit. Every time the Isles do something right, they always end up screwing themselves later on.

    And like Jux said, the backup goalie?

    I don;t know...I have been following the chaos for a couple of days...sorry guys but I was pumping up my post count on the Islander board....but this really feels like as a fan I was kicked in the gut....I am keeping my fingers crossed that they have half a clue as to what they are doing but after 15 years of Mike Milbury I am not so sure.
