Mottau Joins Islanders and Elite Eight

Hobey Baker winner cum NHL journeyman Mike Mottau completes the New York area trifecta today by signing with a two-year, $1.6M contract with the Islanders. That got me thinking. Who else has played for the Rangers, Devils and Islanders?

It must be early in the morning, because I got as far as Vladimir Malakhov before my brain froze. But thanks to HockeyDB and, I've filled in the gaps. Here are the eight players who've donned (or will don in Mottau's case) all three sweaters:

Pat Conacher
Sergei Nemchinov

Joel Bouchard
Vladimir Malakhov
Mike Mottau

Mike Dunham
John Vanbiesbrouck
Kevin Weekes

Intent to Blow

If you're a fan of The Onion and the NHL, you'll love Intent to Blow. While it possibly hit a bit too close to home, as all good humor does, I quite enjoyed today's piece on Rangers fans waiving their team.
