Raise your hand if you asked Brian Rolston to your high school prom.
Really, just me?
There are a lot of hockey-related things I could fire my HS BFF for, but this is not one of them. This was a solid decision back in the day. Of course I knew he would say no, what with being plenty older than I am and AHL hockey being over by June. And what my hair looked like those days. But still… I asked him (circa 1996).
This past May, I pretty much ran away from Steven Stamkos on an empty street. My skills are not improving.
The Devils traded Brian to the Islanders last week. Then they signed Zach Parise to a one year deal that probably means his days in NJ are numbered. Get this – the Islanders are taking players on to reach the NHL minimum payroll under the current salary cap: $48.3 million. Time for a shopping spree (and more cupcakes).Tags: brian rolston, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, zach parise
