HUNTER TO THE KINGS

HUNTER TO THE KINGS

WE ARE GOING TO MISS THE PLAYOFFS ( ? )

Well this should certainly come as no surprise really. The New York Islanders have been pretty much a non-factor in the Eastern Conference since the NHL lockout and that certainly doesn't appear as though it's going to change this season. After the retirement of their captain Doug Weight and the failed ballot initiative on August 1st that may have just condemned the franchise to relocation, things are looking just as bleak off the ice as they are on it. The Isles brought in very little significant talent from free agency and instead lost most of what little skill they had going into this summer to other teams with a much better chance at winning. In fact, pretty much the only things to look forward to for the Long Island team this year is their inevitable slug-fests with the Pittsburgh Penguins and the debut of a new third-jersey design that's yet to be released but might have been leaked. Either way, it's going to be another long season for the once-great Islanders team.

The Islanders lost one of their tough guys Tuesday when the Ottawa Senators added muscle by signing Zenon Konopka to a one-year deal. The 30-year-old center spent last season with the Islanders, getting two goals, seven assists and a league-high 307 penalty minutes (including 25 fighting majors). Konopka also ranked fourth in the NHL with a 57.7 percent faceoff success rate. Konopka's contract with the Senators was reported to be one year at $700,000. Islanders winger Blake Comeau filed for salary arbitration. He is coming off a two-year deal that was worth $1.3 million. He scored 24 goals last season, fourth best on the team. The Islanders signed center Trevor Frischmon to a one-year, two-way contract. Frischmon, 29, joins the Islanders from the Columbus organization, though he spent all of last season with the AHL Springfield Falcons. Konopka had apparently wanted to stay with the Islanders, according to a series of posts on his Twitter account. On June 24, he posted: "Looking at the Coliseum from the Marriott. Hoping to run into Garth and plead for a contract." When the Islanders signed fourth-line center Marty Reasoner last week, Konopka posted: "Reasy's a good guy, gritty fourth line grinding cent -- HEY WAIT A MINUTE."

08:24 AM ET 07.05 | For the lot of optimists who see two players who might benefit from a change in scenery, there are also cynics. For once, Dany Heatley didn't get his own way. San Jose dumped Heatley on the Minnesota Wild Sunday night in a deal that sent another former Senators winger, Martin Havlat, to the Sharks. "It's really two disgruntled players getting dealt for each other," a league executive said Tuesday. "It's going to be interesting to see how all this all shakes down." Only two years after demanding a trade out of Ottawa and being dealt to the Sharks, Heatley will play for his fourth NHL team in his 10th season. The only control Heatley had was offering up a list of 10 destinations where the Sharks couldn't send him that included Ottawa, Buffalo, Edmonton, Florida and the Islanders.

THE SAD TRUTH

4

Polls with large fields often split results enough to muddy the idea of a clear-cut winner ... which was not the case when NHL players were recently asked which team they would least like to play on: The No. 1 answer received 27 percent of the vote, while No. 2 received 20 percent. No surprise that the New York Islanders and Edmonton Oilers are tops in this category. They haven't produced a winner in some time and both franchises are chasing new buildings.

Islanders Recall Poulin from Sound Tigers

Islanders Recall Poulin from Sound TigersRookie goaltender receives first career NHL call-upTuesday, 01.04.2011 / 1:16 PM / News The New York Islanders announced today that goaltender Kevin Poulin has been recalled from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League. Poulin’s first career recall comes on an emergency basis, as goaltender Rick DiPietro suffered a strained adductor muscle in a 5-2 Islanders win over the Calgary Flames on Monday, Jan. 3. Poulin, 20, leads all Sound Tigers goalies in wins (10), goals against average (2.13), save percentage (.931) and shutouts (2) this season. The Montreal, QC, native is playing in his first professional season, after completing a four-year junior career with the Victoriaville Tigers of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The New York Islanders drafted Poulin in the fifth round, 126th overall, of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. The 6’2", 211-pound netminder posted career bests in games played (54), shutouts (7), GAA (2.63), save percentage (.916) and wins (35) in his fourth and final season with Victoriaville. Poulin also broke the Victoriaville record for most career wins by a goaltender with 81.

TAVARES

5

John Tavares may be behind the curve as a No. 1 overall pick, but a) he's playing for the Islanders and b) he may be coming around. Something clicked a few weeks ago, right about the time he engaged in his first career fight. On Dec. 11 against the Atlanta Thrashers, Tavares tussled with Alexander Burmistrov in the first scrap of either player's NHL career. In letting out some aggression, Tavares has seemingly knocked off the pressure of being the biggest offensive weapon.

Garth Snow/ Wisniewski TRADE

3

Trade waters starting to stir Guess Garth Snow didn't want the New Jersey Devils getting out of range. Okay, that's mean. Presumably, the Islander GM simply saw a chance to get some value for a veteran defenceman, James Wisniewski, who will be unrestricted in July, and pulled the trigger, getting a second round pick and a fifth rounder from Montreal. Good deal for the Habs, with Andrei Markov out, Josh Gorges ailing and P.K. Subban in some sort of strange purgatory, possibly headed back to the minors. For the Isles, suddenly winners of four of their last five games, it was nonetheless a little peculiar to see the club move their top defenceman. Wisniewski was tied for the team lead in points and was playing more than 23 minutes a game, tops among Long Island defencemen. Perhaps the Isles have their eye on getting the No. 1 pick again this June, and with 30th place New Jersey going absolutely nowhere despite last week's coaching change, the Islanders don't want to get too far ahead. The strange part was that Snow didn't shop Wisniewski, but simply cut a deal with Pierre Gauthier. These days, the market for capable defencemen is just starting to heat up and prices can only increase. Then again, moving him now saves more than half of his $3.25 million salary, and that matters on The Island, where the deal has the club barely above the NHL's $43.4 salary floor, and that's with buyout cap hits for Alexei Yashin and Brendan Witt.
