Rangers Trade Hollweg; Islanders fire Nolan
This morning I woke to the comedy that is the ownership of the New York Islanders. Oh what fun it must be to be a fan of the Islanders. You never know what will happen next!
Anyway, it seems that the Rangers shipped Ryan Hollweg to the Maple Leafs in exchange for a bag of used pucks and a 5th round draft pick. Some might say that Hollweg’s fate was sealed when he got that boarding penalty during game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semi-finals against the Penguins. I just think that he reached the peak of his potential and Slats and Tom realized this. Plus he had the gift of taking inopportune penalties that cost the Rangers multiple games and all he could come up with was, “I was playing my game.”
Well have fun playing your game in Toronto.
