Sometimes it’s all too easy

The 97 Draft: Luongo has no mullet, Samsonov had a reason to smile and Marleau still looks goofy. Like taking candy from an armless, blind baby, but hey we only get one shot a year (at best) to rub it in, so just a reminder....

On June 24, 2000 the New York Islanders traded Roberto Luongo and Olli Jokinen to Florida for Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha

And why Mr. Milbury? From his lips (and ignore the Nathan Smith reference later on in the article):

"This is the most important goalie in the most important position in the sport," said Milbury".

We all know we could crunch numbers and make that trade look even worse but why spit on the Islander fans like that? Besides you have our ex-goalie as a lady-loving GM. Good stuff.

So yes, the big story tonight is...the return of Richard Park. Can the vaunted Korean make the GM crowd eat crow?

I'll be bringing my drunk blogging skills over to Alanah land. Stop by and perhaps chuck a sickie tomorrow won't ya?
