My Thoughts On Mayfield Extension

July 13, 2016

From the New York Islanders: BROOKLYN (July 12, 2016) – The New York Islanders announced today that Scott Mayfield has agreed to terms on a two-year deal. Mayfield, 23, appeared in six games with the Islanders last season, compiling 11 penalty minutes and scoring his first NHL goal. The St. Louis, MO, native spend the majority of the season with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League, scoring…

Blog: Where’s The Consistency For The Islanders?

February 14, 2016

For many it’s the old cliché of one step forward two steps back this season. With the standings getting tighter and tighter by the day, many want Islanders general manager Garth Snow to get that forward or defenseman and not have to worry about consistency issues and to make a legit run past the…

Is The Glass Half Full Or Empty?

November 4, 2015

The New York Islanders defeated the new Jersey Devils last night by a score of 2-1. Since my last post the Isles have gone 1-1-2 and many fans are not happy with how the Isles have played. Writing for myself, I was hoping for a 4-0 run this past week. I was really expecting the Islanders in first place and have a really good buffer between the other teams who…

Hockey from the Blind Side, Isles Drop 3 out of 4 Points to Open the 2015-16 Season

It certainly was not the way Islander fans nor the New York Islanders would have wanted to open the new season. Frankly, I was quite disappointed and, to some degree, disgusted. After they played a pretty solid game for their home opener at the Barclays Center on Friday, they played a spectacularly bad game in Chicago last night to complete the home and home with the Black Hawks. The home…

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…

I am not a happy person, and to be frank, you in…

Talk From the 300 Section – Tough Loss

March 11, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR GARY’S PODCAST… No matter how you slice it – it was a difficult 3rd period to watch.  The Isles were the completely dominant team in the first 20, but somehow forgot the last 40. The last regular season game at NVMC of Islanders-Rangers will not go down as a classic in the history books.  It will be a complete disappointment. This is my talk about the…

Gary’s Audio Blog – January 12, 2015

January 12, 2015

CLICK BELOW TO HEAR GARY’S PODCAST… Greetings from Big D. I have been here for a family function this weekend.  Unfortunately, I am stuck here a few extra hours, because my flight home was cancelled. I did NOT see the games over the weekend, but obviously, heard so much from friends and Facebook/Twitter.  I can easily see that the talk of jumping over the ledge is gone.  The team is…

Welcome Back Johnny Rockets – and Other Things

December 19, 2014

He was missing for nine games.  Thank goodness, that the team did well without him in the lineup.  Kudos to ANDREI VASILEVSKIY for having a deep team. He and Travis Hamonic returned to the lineup tonight, as Matt Donovan returned to the sidelines.  #46 played admirably with the others being out of the lineup. Michael Grabner is on the IR retroactive to Dec. 13.  Do not expect him back before the…
