The Islanders’ top […]

All Quiet on the Islanders’ Front For Now

All is quiet in Isles land for now. We will be doing some research on draft prospects, and come up with a short piece sometime soon. The 15th pick isn’t exactly bowl me over in a trade for a great player exciting, but it could have some value if they decide to deal it. The […]

One Year Later, Islanders Have Many Questions To Answer

April 24, 2016. It’s a day that will stick in the minds of Islanders’ fans forever. That is the day the 23-year drought was quenched, and the Islanders moved onto the second-round of the playoffs for the first time since 1993. No matter how many times you watch it, it still gives you chills. The […]

Similar to the Barclays Center, the new Nassau Coliseum features an open atrium that spectators can see the whole arena bowl from.

Islanders Must Say No to Coliseum Return

Just because something sounds like a good idea, doesn’t mean it is. Just look at the Brooklyn debacle. The Islanders and BSE (Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment), the owners of Barclays Center, have 30 days after the end of the season to renegotiate the supposed “iron-clad” 25-year agreement the Islanders signed when they moved to Brooklyn […]

Tavares Injury Darkens Islanders’ Already Dim Playoff Hopes

The Islanders were battling all night. They had chance after chance to put the game away, and Keith Kincaid stood tall, keeping it close. Even through nine power plays, two plus five-on-threes (the plus comes because they didn’t really try much on the third), the Isles could not blow the game open. So, John Tavares […]

Ok everyone, take a breath.  Just 20 hours before the Islanders make you go through it all again.

Unfortunately, many didn’t get through. […]
