It's that time of year again.

After looking like they might make a decent season out of it, my Islanders have engaged in their annual winter tanking expedition. They had me going for a little while, after they lost seven of eight in early December, before turning it around pretty nicely. They've now lost nine of ten and, well, all hope is lost (But remember I am of perennially little faith.). So now you can all rejoice -- you won't hear me talk about them for a while. They're dead to me (temporarily). Although that does exclude Rick DiPietro and Ted Nolan. They're still cool. But not you Andy Hilbert. Not you. Not ever.
