JIGGS

+

When are the Isles gonna officially have a Night to Retire the Mic of the man behind these broadcasts? Jiggs deserves a Nite at the Coliseum before they close the Old Barn. He's the voice of the Islanders and the only individual connected with the Dynasty that has not had a night of his own. I am right aren't I? Has Jiggs had a night yet?

How Would You Rename Isles (If You Had To)?

Hey Guys....Just for Fun....I was wondering How Isles fans would Rename the Team if they had to rename the team as a condition of the move to Brooklyn. Note: U dont have to call them the Broooklyn _____. If U want to retain New York as your team Location that is OK?

Oduya Re-Ups with CHI

2

So...Thats 1 of the more realistic FAs that the Isles could have made a run at. The #Isles really need to start bringing in some fresh blood without giving any real valuable assets. It would be great if we could get 1 or 2 real solid FA pickups.

The 3-Point Debate...One of My Favs

4

Pierre LeBrun discussing the 3-Point System and the chances it ever gets adopted. I MAKE NO SECRET THAT I LOVE THIS IDEA. Brian Burke, as if we did not already know....is really just an idiot. Please just remember this everyone....TIES STINK. As a sports consumer...I pay to experience either the Trill of Victory or The Agony of Defeat. That being said...Shoot-out wins need to be de-valued and Regulation Wins need to be Highlighted More.

Pat Flatley is a Top-Notch Analyst

To start, I have to say that the addition of Flatley (or any analyst for that matter) in a position between the benches is a fantastic add to any hockey broadcast. The proximity to the action...

Kate Murray is a Puppet

11

The tribe also appeared to be facing a prospective opponent in Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray, who had appeared onstage with Mangano when Belmont was announced. In a publicly released letter to a Floral Park resident dated Dec. 29, Murray said she had "profound concerns" with Nassau's "stated intention" for a Belmont casino.

NEED HELP: Obstructed view seating at Coliseum?

Hey - does anyone know what row the obstructed view seating (of the scoreboard) begins at the Coliseum? Also, do certain sections not have obstructed view seating at the top of the arena? Thanks for your help.

Trade Frans Neilsen

27

I understand it is sacrilege in these parts, but the link above lists free agent forwards this coming off-season. Look at the Neilsen's cap hit. His cap hit is lower than Colliton, Frischmon and Gillies on the Islanders. At the deadline, there are gonna be teams with serious playoff aspirations that would give up some assets for Frans Neilsen. Neilsen would really help any team with PK needs, a need for a third line Center, etc.. I like Frans Neilsen and all that he brings to the table but I do wonder if we have seen the best of what Fransie brings and also wonder if there much up-side left on Fransie. Chris Botta did bring up the idea that sometimes calling a player the most underrated player in the league eventually makes him overrated and I can see how this can apply to a player like Frans Neilsen. If Frans was making 2.0M instead of of the 525K he makes now...nobody would be calling him underrated. He would be a 2 million dallar player with particular attributes and thats all. With Bailey's continued development and the forwards that the isles have developing in BPT and Juniors (i.e. Czikas, Strome, Ullstrom, etc). It might be time to get the last of what he can out of the Great Dane.

Hey Older Isles Fans!!! During the glory years of the Isles did they hve attendance issues like they have today? The image above is from the isles website and the photo is of the Stands during the 1984 Stanley Cup playoffs Question: Were the Islanders selling out the Coliseum a lot of nights during the 80s and early 90s?

Islanders Hall of Fame Discussion.

15

So...Ed Westfall enters the Islanders Hall of Fame on Saturday. This year the isles will also add Ken Morrow, Pat Flatley & Kenny Jonsson, each player representing a particular decade in the Isles 40 year History These guys join the following names in the Isles HOF if I am Correct: Bill Torrey Al Arbour Denis Potvin Mike Bossy Bryan Trottier Billy Smith Bobby Nystrom Clark Gillies Bob Bourne I hope I am correct....I think that is the complete list. Question: Who goes next into Isles HOF? Am I missing a natural name? Butchie maybe? What are your requirements for Isles HOF inductees?

Is There An Islander Bar? Besides Champions?

3
Ed. Note: Bumped, for the start of the season and new questions. Please also think of Midtown bars, for the city dwellers/workers. Does anyone know of a good Islanders Bar to go and watch the occasional game? My criteria for a good Isles bar are very few and very simple: 1. On Islanders Game Nights the bar should be primarily filled with Islander Fans. 2. While the game is on....most TVs are tuned into the Islander Game and all other outside influences are muted (JukeBox, Other Games, etc.) and the Islander TV Broadcast can be heard while watching. **I have a local bar that went to on occasion last year but I was looking for a more Islander-Centric bar (Besides Champions). Does Champions meet the criteria listed above? Anyone know a good place?

Nino Niederreiter Issues: Wishing he could play for BPT.

12

I am all for the idea of giving Nino a chance to make this team out of camp and surely Nino is way past the Junior leagues at this point but he may not be entirely ready to jump to the NHL either. Am I the only person who would really like it if the Isles could have him in BPT if they could? His status really hamstrings the Isles because BPT might be best next step in his development (even if for only 30-40 games). Question: Do the isles have the same ability as last season to let Nino play 9 NHL games this year before officially having the season count against his ELC? The reason I ask is because Nino still has plenty to prove yet and there is no evidence that he should be playing above any of the top 9-10 forwards from late last season. With Calvin deHaan, the Isles have the option to play him at BPT (which they should). I wish they had some option with Nino. It might be best for his development.

Do The Islanders Need A Jim Fassel Moment?

4

With The Isles on the Brink....of losing a slat of Real Estate...of losing a slice of what is their history...of Losing a piece of what is their loyal fanbase....do the Isles a Jim Fassel Moment? Do they need a player/coach/GM or even an Owner to step up before this season starts and make a proclomation to help kick start some LI Inspiration? Inspiration? Is the Islander moment born from a Great Opportunity?? Do we as Islander fans need a person/moment this season that will determine the future of the franchise on Long Island? Do we need Kyle Okposo or John Tavares or Rick DiPietro to step and make a GUARANTEE to kick start a run this season that will make it impossible to let this franchise leave? To a certain extent I think we do. What do you all think?

If Suffolk then Where?

14

If the Isles look in Suffolk, what are the potential locations? Brentwood (Which I think is actually out of play now)? What are Realistic Locations? They can't go any further east than Brentwood I wouldn't think. so where do they go? Also: What is the point of Talking with Levy about anything. The guy is literally packing his bags due to his own political problems.
