Oh Charles Wang, how you amuse me, not just your last name, but everything you do. Never change. Never change.
So aside from trying to get that Lighthouse Project off and running on Long Island, and the team totally screwing over Chris Botta, the Isles offseason was marked with the odd signings of Dwayne Roloson and later, Martin Biron. If it was one it wouldn't be a deal, but both? Now we've got questions.
Why 3 legitimate #1 goaltenders? Obviously, DiPietro won't be starting the year, but wasn't he supposed to be back soon after? Can't trust Rolly for a month of play before DiPi makes it back? How injured is he? Strained vulva? My God, makes Gaborik look like freakin' Cal Ripken. Is Martin Biron really going to spend time in the AHL? I would ask ole Chuck Wang but I'd never understand his reply "Werrl re're rearry, rearry excited about Marrin Birron coming to Rong Rirand to pray for my Isranders." (Oh geez, that was kinda stereotypical eh? Win = Me.)
But there is renewed hop...optimis...well there's something renewed on Long Island with the drafting of John Tavares. Him, Okposo, some other guy, and another guy will lead the youth movement, and maybe they'll come flying out of the Eastern Conference basement, all the way to 13th!
Good luck with that.
