Islanders Maple Leafs Hockey

A few years back, the Islanders traded for Rob Blake, but LA said no we didn’t sign anything and gave them Jason Blake, a legendary center from the Orlando Solar Bears of the IHL instead. They let him play every shift for two years, allowing him to blossom from a scrap heap “Anitolé” into a decent guy who almost score 30 goals. Then he realized he wasn’t making the money, so he scored a shitload of empty net goals and lifters to get to 40 in his walk year. When free agency following the season, he tried 100% to put the Islanders out of business by signing with the Maple Leafs for all the money, and then shut down Canada’s government. He lived up to his absurdly high priced contract by scoring no goals or points and eating the Little Cesar’s Pizza as a healthy scratch, in the press box. The geeky Canadian media wrote a whole lot of feel bad words about him being a sad sack, and then promptly flipflopped (calling him “lovely”) when he had ONE GOOD GAME against his former team, who is in the last place.
