Slanted Media Coverage
While Kyle is enjoying his first smorgasbord in Sweden waiting to participate in the World Juniors, the Islanders are under constant media scrutiny. Despite pulling off the 2 points in regulation in last night's game vs the Rangers, the sources have decided that the Islanders did not really win the game. The Rangers were robbed of the win due to the unfair 60 minute rule. If the Rangers had been allowed a little more time they rightfully would have beaten the weakling Isles. This kind of slanted perspective of Ranger superiority over teams like the Islanders is poor logic. Most teams require a "team," not 3 high-priced jerks who are the team's sole source of offensive production. Come the new year I think we might see this facade of Ranger supremacy crumble under the weight of bloated salary players like Jagr and Shanahan and the fallible nature of pseudo-coach Tom Renney.
