Hockey from the Blind Side, Blind Observations About the Draft

Well, it’s here and gone. With all of the build up, the 2014 NHL draft ended yesterday. What was a surprise to me was the lack of any real surprises. I was expected a lot more trade activity, and that included the Islanders. And I’m not talking about swapping draft selections either. There were few trades at all, and Florida, as I suspected, held on to their first round pick….

Hockey from the Blind Side, Dan Boyle and Other Catching Up

I am, as usual, catching up here. I wanted to take a few moments to comment on the radio show Gary and I did for Sports Radio New York last Sunday. The focus, as I believe Gary had indicated, was actually on the New York Rangers, instead of our usual focus of the Isles. It is, though, supposed to be a show about all New York sports, so we have…

Hockey from the Blind Side, Blind Observations on Our Evening Chatting With Garth

I finally have the chance to write some thoughts about the last show Gary and I did for sportsradiony.com on Sunday in which Garth Snow kindly spent 45 or so minutes chatting with us and answering a variety of questions. Once again, I was flattered and humbled that Mr. Snow chose to take time out of his schedule to allow us to ask him questions and give us his thoughts…

Hockey from the Blind Side, The Playoffs, Halak is in the House, and Other Observations

It has been a while. My apologies to my fellow Isles Talk writers and our readers. A cruise at the beginning of April, a business trip last week and just generally being busy has monopolized my time. Unfortunately, about four or five posts died in draft heaven since the beginning of the month as I just wasn’t able to complete my thoughts or write anything worth posting. So, let me…

For the next SportsTalk 1240 show for John and I, on Sunday, May 4th, we will have Garth Snow, as our guest. We will talk about the season just ended, and his thoughts on free-agency, the draft (will he – or wont he keep the pick this season), and other questions on the minds of you, Islander nation. We will NOT take calls, but for this show, we will take…

Hockey from the Blind Side, Comments on the Last Few Radio Shows

Time has often been the problem for me of late as far as preventing me from posting a lot more frequently and consistently than I have been able to do. Life just happens sometimes. My schedule can be so strange that I just don’t have much open time to sit down and write a good post or I try to put something together, but it dies in the Drafts folder…
