Former Islander forward Dave Scatchard in a tweet earlier today referred to those who thought it was a bad idea to clean up the area around the Coliseum and have a hockey team there as idiots. These are the first comments of I am sure many that will come from former Islander players as it winds down to 2015.
I am sure roughly 90% of the people around here agree with Dave!
If you don't know Dave Scatchard, he played from the Islanders from 1999/2000-2003/2004. His best season was 2000/2001 when he recorded 45 points and a 114 penalty minutes.
