When the Islanders named Anders fucking Lee captain I laughed a bit, I chuckled. I thought maybe the Islanders just gave out the C to the guy who scores the most goals. I don’t know much about Lee but I absolutely love this.
This is a guy I’d go to war with. With one word Lee has said “Hey Johnny Boy, fuck right off.” If I’m an Islanders fan I like this. Yeah, you should probably be mature and go on your way civilly but who actually wants to do that? Who actually wants to wish an ex the best of luck? I’ve been there and I can confidently say that I could care less about whatever luck finds any sort of ex relationship. If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best. I think the Islanders might be able to rally around something like this. Maybe they won’t be that bad this year, maybe their new leader will mean more to the locker room than Johnny Benedict Arnold. Probably not but it’s nice to think about. I’m now team Anders Lee.
