It’s the right movie ending, but if this were a film, the Leafs would be going away disappointed. Should they be? [Insert lyrics here from a Kenny Rogers song about knowing when to walk away.] Hamonic has a reputation as a good defender, but he’s been failing to put up his usual level of results lately. He demanded a trade, which the Islanders couldn’t make work last season,
