Blog: Isles Have A Perect Storm Approaching

To all the Islanders fans, I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve. I wish nothing but the best for you as we embark into 2017. It’s a new year and it just quite possibly be a new season of sorts for the New York Islanders. New York responded well after sending former starting goalie, Jaroslav Halak, to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL as they beat Winnipeg…

Isles Lose To Wild; Halak Waived

Last nights game against the Minnesota Wild personified what this season has been like between the Islanders and goalie Jaroslav Halak. There were a few things to not like, but I’ll try to condense a short version because I’m sure it’s been drilled by other media outlets. First off, the Islanders are now 6-12-1 against teams in the top ten in the NHL. They have not yet recovered from losing…

Isles Talk Investment: Buy, Sell or Hold on Jack Capuano

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and the small break from hockey. So now I’m going to take you from being cheer and merry to whatever mood you’re in when you read the words, Jack Capuano. Just from the title alone, I’ll get yelled at by someone, somewhere. Why in the world would I even think about wanting to keep him as a coach at this point? Three reasons: First:…

Blog: Too Little, Too Late

The one line that sent chills down my spine which clearly represented this New York Islanders season was said by their play-by-play announcer Brendan Burke at the last moments of the Isles losing to the Ottawa Senators was this: “Too little, too late.” As the Islanders completed their 31st game of this NHL season, it’s a harsh reality and a harder pill to swallow when I begin, with confidence, “eliminating”…

Isles Talk Rumor Roundup: Isles & Bruins In Talks About Spooner; Kulemin

From Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com The 23-year-old Spooner was mentioned casually a few months ago as possible fodder in a Jacob Trouba deal with the Winnipeg Jets, but that deal never really materialized prior to the Jets signing their young, frontline D-man to a two-year deal. The Carolina Hurricanes, New York Islanders and San Jose Sharks have all expressed interest in Spooner, per one hockey source, as it appears that…

Isles Talk Rumor Roundup: Duchene, Landeskog, Duclair, Yakupov

Since it’s a slow night, I’d figure I take a look around the internet to see any possible trade rumors involving the Islanders. There really isn’t anything concrete or anything of substance, but I’ll just have some fun and this is strictly for entertainment, I have no confirmation on anything here, pure speculation. From Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: There are rumblings Colorado would trade captain/left-winger Gabriel Landeskog for a…

From Art Staple of Newsday: Scott Malkin and Jon Ledecky have not said anything publicly during the Islanders’ dismal start to the owners’ first season in charge. But they have been busy. Newsday has learned that Malkin and Ledecky have been meeting since the summer with a number of people in the hockey world, from former team chief officers to power agents to retired players, in hopes of finding a…

Blog: Isles Late Bloomers Begin To Shine

What a difference a week makes, especially when the New York Islanders win three in a row. The Islanders had to beat the Calgary Flames if they wanted to even dream about making the playoffs. It was a dream come true for them when they beat both the Penguins and Capitals Wednesday and yesterday, respectably. Hoping that the Islanders do not lose another three straight, you can make a string…

Pulock To Miss Game Against Flames

From Brian Compton: Capuano: Pulock progressing but will not play tomorrow. #Isles — Brian Compton (@BComptonNHL) November 27, 2016 My Take: This was one of my thoughts I had that would help the Islanders get out of the basement, no less talking about the draft lottery. The only saving grace here is that the Isles are playing the Calgary Flames. With the Flames season also about to be extinguished, former…
