This book was thouroughly enjoyable. Considering I'm not an Islander Fan, (Go Rangers), I found it interesting to understand the logic behind the decision making of a GM (Milbury). I felt there were behind the scenes antics going on which were described in this book that you would not read or hear in day to day following. Good read for any hockey fan.

FISH STICKS IS ABOUT THE RECENT FALL BUT RISE AND FALL AGAIN HISTORY OF THE NY ISLANDERS. IT IS PRETTY ENTERTAINING AND ENLIGHTENING. A BULK OF THE BOOK IS ABOUT THE TRANSACTIONS, OPINIONS, AND LANGUAGE USED BY SUPER EGO MIKE MILBURY. (PLEASE SOMEONE MUZZLE THIS IDIOT)
I RECOMMEND THIS MOSTLY FOR ALL ISLANDER FANS AND FOR SOME DIEHARD HOCKEY FANS. WORTH THE READ.

As one of the few who thought the fisherman logo was cool (and I'm not even an Islanders fan), I was hoping this would give me some info on that, but it barely gives any. Is anyone willing to sell a jersey with the fisherman logo? I'd love to have one of those. Good review of the Isles.
