Blog: With A Long Summer Ahead, Three Questions Remain

Well, that was completely unexpected, but when you’ve been a fan for as long as some have it’s not shocking, but it is (to put it nicely) disappointing. The New York Islanders will miss the playoffs for a second consecutive year and there’s some very obvious reasons why they’ll miss. I’m not going to write about what happened ( I will later) or why the Isles missed and just regurgitate…

Blog: Isles Have No Choice But To Go Up

The “Second Half” of the season begins for the Islanders tonight against the Florida Panthers after the completion of this past weekend’s All-Star festivities. With the Isles completion of the their 50th game a few days ago, we’ll go through the pro-rated standings, talk a little bit about what the Isles may do at the trade deadline (which is now less than a month away) and I’ll give a few…

Blog: Welcome To The Trade Deadline Season

Welcome to the second half of the NHL hockey season folks! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, but there is a new season upon us. It’s called the NHL trade deadline. For me, the trade deadline season begins usually after the World Junior Championships and lasts up until the actual trade deadline date which is February 26th. This is also where you’ll start to begin to see teams…

Belmont – Here we Come! YES YES YES

As Larry Brooks said, this may have been the best day in 34 years, as an Islanders fan.   He is close, but it is right up there. With a press conference at Belmont Park, it was announced the NY Arena Partners (A venture between the Isles/Mets and MSG) are going to build a complex at Belmont Park, where the Isles will finally call HOME! Finally, for the first time as…

Blog: Isles Must Throw Out The Under Dog Role

With the NHL moving forward beyond the quarter mark and the New York Islanders playing tomorrow against the Philadelphia Flyers, it’s time to take a deeper look into the Isles and see where things could be headed for over the next quarter mark. In the preseason, I went for the Isles finishing anywhere between 100-105 points and making the playoffs. I also stated that the second half of last season,…

The East After 10 Games; Isles Thoughts

In my usual custom, I rarely look at the standings until at least the 15th game and sometimes if there’s still some congestion, I won’t really look until most teams finish around the 20th game. It has always been important and emphasized by teams to get off to a good start, but there was always that one team that just flopped before the season really began. The prime example this…

Blog: Isles Must Keep “Misery Loves Company” Door Closed

The Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, Arizona Coyotes, Buffalo Sabres and to an extent, the Edmonton Oilers are in a room with the door closed and there’s a sign in front of the door that says “Misery Loves Company.” These are the bottom five teams in the entire NHL and the New York Islanders have a chance to make two of those teams feel utterly demoralized within a weeks time….

Isles Talk 2017-18 Eastern Conference Predeictions

So we’re just about two weeks away from the start of the regular season and it’s time for my predictions segment. Now unlike many, I love doing predictions. It gives me a chance to really look into researching other teams (It’s also part of my regular job) and I pride/curse at myself on how that research comes to fruition/destruction. As always I will break down each conference into four categories:…
