I'm gonna predict the Islanders win the Atlantic

I just figured..."F#$% it, no one else is (Not that there isn't good reason) so I'll be that idiot." So here I go, I'm predicting the Islanders win the Atlantic division. Here are my reasons why I...

Sometimes I just don't get HockeyFutures organizational rankings

It's been sometimes since I visited their rankings. I think the last time I checked there a year ago the Islanders were ranked somewhere around 27th or so. I just checked in today to find it was...

Does Kabanov make the team this season?

Interesting tidbit from Botta's latest;   Invaluable Islanders development coach Eric Cairns has taken Kabanov under his enormous wing. After spending some time with Emerson Etem in Los...

No Kovie Ilyanders.

Sounds like the buzz from a few sources has us out of the running. We can all breath now, at least those of us hoping Wang wan't going to do another Yashin/Dipietor signing, and move one. One...

A few things I hate about this time of year

Ok, so now we're back to it. The regular season and playoffs are over. Stanley cup is awarded and we are in the stretch barreling down to the draft with the UFA shopping spree not long after. Every...

Why no talk of our potential draft picks anywhere?

Funny how this years draft isn't really getting a lot of attention by the blogosphere this year. Maybe finishing in the lottery is becoming old hat? Perhaps no one is really buying into the pre...

Botta reports Philly and Chicago fishing for Roloson

This could be a very intriguing trade deadline for this team. If Snow can pull a late first for Sutton and a second for Roloson this team is in great shape heading into the draft. Optimally I think...

Time for me to make some friends here; Trent Hunter has to go!!!!

Yes, the lead in is dripping with sarcasm. I'm not a knee jerk reactionary when it comes to talking about trading guys. Trent Hunter is clearly a case of two things: 1) A guy who never developed...

To take a moment away from hockey and sports. The world lost a mighty fine human being today. Howard Zinn dies at 87

Loved him or hated him I think everyone can agree he made you pause and think I think it can also be agree he was someone who tried to life the best life any human could hope to live. He certainly...

Tortorella deserves to be fired for this. The NHL needs to step in here.

  Tortorella's recent exchange with Larry Brooks is really disturbing;    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARhVC8uEbQU

Trade Deadline is Nearing

I suppose you gotta know when to hold em and know when to fold em. Tough decisions have to be made in terms of whether this team makes the post season or not. Quite frankly I think Snow, who's...

Okposo Olympic Snub and This Fan's Reaction

I'd like to preface this by saying that Brian Burke is a total asshat. There. I said it.   Team USA is not going anywhere as it is. The roster just is not good enough to compete with the likes of...

Garth Snow now has "green light" from Wang to make stupid deals

Not that I'm trying to take away from a great start to the season from this team. Was reading Chris Botta's latest in regards to whether or not Wang is choking Snow's funds right now. According to...

Tambellini and the Garth Snow lynch mob.

Much-maligned Jeff Tambellini's recent success begs the question: How long should you wait before giving up on NHL prospects?

Uglier than you know; The "D" Corp

Figured I'd balance out my positivity with an aspect of this team that I abhor; The Defense!!!!   Was watching the game last night and one thing stuck out to me. I don't know why this particular...

Better than we all thought? Maybe?

With the Islanders run of OTLs and a win over the Rangers, is the team showing signs they aren't the lottery-dwellers many thought they were?

A little Travis Hamonic love.

I've been following this guy since the season in Juniors started. In my book he probably should be the top ranked player in our system but I haven't seen much of the other guys yet.   Now for...

Glass half full persepective; On second thought, it really hasn't been that bad!!!

Chris Botta to start this season asked readers to pick which teams we thought the Islanders were better than. I couldn't find any that were definites so I figured I'd throw out a bone for folks to...

Newsday looking to charge for web content

newsday.com will be available at no charge to Newsday and Optimum Online® subscribers If you're out of state or use another internet provider, coverage will cost you 250 a year (according to Botta). Looks like I'm screwed. Wang should look for a more accessible source to provide primary coverage of the team.

Who gets the Calder?

It's opening night so it's a good time to ask this question. I'll propose a few who I think are good bets and not so good bets to win it.   Matt Gilroy; I can't really make a prediction on this...

EA's NHL10 DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!!

Figured I'd give anyone fair warning in regards to this game. If you are thinking of buying it hold onto your money for now. The game has a viscous bug where it freezes up constantly. A lot of...

What gives? No Dehaan, Hamonic, or Ness on training camp roster.

What gives?   After last seasons draft one would think the way they touted Dehaan he would at least get an invite to camp just to get a sniff of the NHL. What about Hamonic and Ness who already...

TSN Islanders Preview: Are you hoping for another high 1st-round pick this season?

TSN's preview of the Islanders seems to undersell some of their young talent. That said, will it be another lottery year, or something more?

The 1992-93 Islanders, Turgeon trade, and dashed hopes

The Islanders should honor Pierre Turgeon not just because he was a great player, but because they need to heal an old wound.

Snow's Rebuilding Tipping Point

Garth Snow's rebuild was the right move, but he'll soon have to make difficult decisions on veterans like Brendan Witt, Trent Hunter and Sean Bergenheim.
