Blog: Islanders Facing Adversity & Are Better For It

January 18, 2016

Despite the season long laundry list of injuries, the inconsistent powerplay, the “enigma” that is Islanders captain John Tavares, a trade request, and everyone’s favorite whipping boy Brian Strait, the New York Islanders are in second place in the Metro Division and are tied for third in the Eastern Conference with a pace for 98 points. Now a few posts ago I thought the Islanders would eventually surpass the New…

December 2, 2015

As the New York Islanders take on their rival Rangers tonight at the Barclays Center, the Islanders have been presented with a golden opportunity this month to move up in the standings and not have to worry about just making the playoffs.

The Passing Of A Legend

August 30, 2015

There’s so much to say in such a small venue of space for me to get in everything I would like to write about Al Arbour. In my humble opinion he’s one of the greatest, if not the greatest New York coach ever. Some will argue a few Yankees or the NFL Giants coaches like Joe Torre, Casey Stengel or Bill Parcells, but Arbour did it in a sport most…

July 23, 2015

After their first 100 point regular season in over 30 years and a nail biting, too many sticks breaking 7 game series with the Washington Capitals, New York Islanders fans were looking for a big offseason to improve the club to take that “next step.” First came the draft, which many are not to concerned with, but they should be.

The Islanders Are All About Family

April 21, 2015

The title above is very true and absolute. When it comes to the New York Islanders fans and it’s players, hockey games at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum mean only one word, family.

2015 Eastern Conference Predictions

April 15, 2015

It’s that time of year once again where everyone gets to prepare and write up their playoff predictions. Last year I went perfect in the Eastern Conference and bombed in the West (Thanks San Jose!).

Blog: Islanders Will Turn Things Around

April 8, 2015

Many or all of the Islanders fans out there are pissed off with last night’s performance. If this is still the case, then allow me to be the calming influence. Even after last night’s game, I’m still confident that the Isles can pull through this. If you’re one of those fans that has season tickets and see no hope in sight, I would truly be indebted to you if you…

The New York Islanders, having tied a few teams with the most games played this season at 71, get a much needed break this week when they face off against the Chicago Black Hawks and the New Jersey Devils this week, giving the team some much needed rest and practice time. For fans, it’s all about the standings. Can the Islanders still win the Metropolitan Division? Some are still asking…
