Isles Talk 2017-18 Eastern Conference Predeictions

September 27, 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 (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:…

Blog: Crawford Should Be Next Coach Of The Islanders

January 18, 2017

With the recent firing of former New York Islanders head coach, Jack Capuano, all eyes will be on the current coach and assistant general manager, Doug Weight to see if the Islanders can show any kind of glimpses of the previous two seasons.

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!). Yes, that meant I did have the Rangers going to the Cup, but not this year. I already have my picks set in, but I’m just doing the first round of each Conference. Each winner…

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…
