Isles Talk 2017-18 Western Conference Predictions

September 25, 2017

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 and I pride myself on how that research comes to fruition. As always I will break down each conference into four categories: The Core; Bubble, Sophomores, and Lottery. When it…

Isles Talk Western Conference Preview

October 8, 2014

#486981053 / gettyimages.com I usually do things thing a little different when it comes to regular season predictions. Like last year, I will categorize teams into certain groups and make a quick analysis on each team. Unfortunately, the Western Conference is like the rich getting richer and the poor get poorer.

But….. Before I go any further I would like to point out (maybe gloat a little haha) that in October, I made one of two “Bold Predictions” that both Boston and Pittsburgh wouldn’t make…

Playoff Preview: Wednesday Night

The first round of the 2014 NHL playoffs begin tonight and to be honest, there’s nothing like it.

10 For 10

However, this is not the 10 for 10 that you want to see… The streak of winless has not hit to (0-8-2), as the Isles fell to the Ducks 5-2.  To be honest, I fell asleep when the game hit 2-2.  I just could not keep my eyes open. Apparently, the Isles may have done the same thing. John Tavares (PP) and Thomas Vanek tallied for the visiting team, and…

Will This be an Interesting Week in Islander Country?

Game 3 of the West Coast Soiree is at the Honda Center tonight.  The Isles take on the Pacific leaders, the Ducks tonight. The Ducks have lost ONE game at home this season. Yes, I said ONE! Can it get any worse? Saturday – according to myself, John Panarese and Andy Graziano of Eyes On Isles, felt was the game that the Isles could grab as a W.  Yes, I…
