Hamonic out for Regular Season… Does Isles Nation Panic???

April 1, 2016

It is an extremely significant blow at the totally wrong time of the year.  For the second straight season, the Islanders lose mainstay defenseman Travis Hamonic with a LOWER BODY INJURY. There is no speculation of anytime after that, but this will be a bitter pill for Islander nation to swallow. On the good side, I was at Northwell Ice Rink this afternoon, and saw Jaro Halak working with the strength…

From The 300 Section – Broken Sticks and No Cowbells

April 22, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR GARY’S PODCAST… Needless to say, I am a little peeved today. I think the league should return the wood sticks back.  Not only are these composite sticks costing teams nearly 1 million dollars a season, but they break at the most inopportune moments (ask JT about that).
