From Brian Compton: Capuano: Pulock progressing but will not play tomorrow. #Isles — Brian Compton (@BComptonNHL) November 27, 2016 My Take: This was one of my thoughts I had that would help the Islanders get out of the basement, no less talking about the draft lottery. The only saving grace here is that the Isles are playing the Calgary Flames. With the Flames season also about to be extinguished, former…

Blog: Playoff Run Begins Now For Islanders

November 26, 2016

The New York Islanders have completed twenty games after losing to the San José Sharks yesterday by a score of 3-2. At this stage of the season, enough games have past that I take a much longer look at the point-pace of every Eastern Conference team and I can begin to see who should be in the playoffs and who I should be looking at for the draft lottery. If…

Blog: California Dreamin For Isles

November 22, 2016

With the Islanders at 5-8-4 and entering a three game California tour of Anaheim, San Jose and Los Angeles, the New York Islanders find themselves toying with the idea of not making the playoffs. In order for the Islanders to keep in the race, they’ll need to win at least 2 out of the next three and hope that teams like the Devils, Bruins, Senators and Panthers continue to either…

Blog: Believe In The Potential, Not The Hype

October 25, 2016

For years during the rebuild, the New York Islanders have struggled to find goaltending and depth. Three summers ago they signed Jaroslav Halak to a four-year deal and he became the undisputed number one goalie. Last year, the Islanders signed Thomas Greiss to a two-year deal and he not only filled in admirably, he helped John Tavares and the Islanders advance to the second round of the playoffs for the…

Blog: Who Will Still Be There At 19?

June 22, 2016

We’ve gone over the prospects in the New York Islanders organization and now it’s time to see who might be joining them starting on Friday at 7pm. In earlier years I would write about 10-15 different prospects leading up to the draft. By Friday morning, I’d predict who the Islanders would take in their respective slots. This year, I’m narrowing it down to five players. Mind you, I’m not necessarily…

Blog: The Barzal Effect

June 21, 2016

Part three of the Prospects are the ones who are not yet old enough or talented to make it to the professional teams. With another year of development, each of these players should be making their way to either Bridgeport or the Islanders in the near future.
