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?
