Found April 03, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
The New York Islanders will not be sellers this year, and we as fans should be happy with that. It will make for a very quiet day, but the fact that there is no fire-sale in Uniondale is great. Art Staple has just tweeted that additional talks with Evgeni Nabokov's agent about an extension are ongoing, but nothing final as of yet. I do not have trade rumor sources. I did shoot one email ju...

Looking At The Islander’s Playoffs Chances

Founded in 1972, The New York islanders have not seen much playoff action since the 80’s. Islanders fans reminisce fondly of a time when the team was a menacing force to be reckon with.

Islanders Win Crucial Game In NJ; Must Repeat Tomorrow by   Jesse Dakss

Earlier in the season, it seemed as if the opponent scored almost every game within the first few minutes. This led to the Islanders having to play from behind for a large portion of the game. Tonight, the roles were reversed. Josh Bailey finished off a great play with a nice deke to his backhand [...]

Dee Karl: Isles in Washington

The New York Islanders visit the Washington Capitals tonight and it seems Anders Lee will be watching the game from the press box. According to Newsday's Art Staple, it looks like Jesse Joensuu may make his debut tonight, or it could be Reasoner in for Anders. Either way, it seems he won't have a chance for a second goal just yet. Radek Martinek will be in for Carkner...

Richard Cloutier: Oilers Capanomics 101 - Should Hemsky be in Play?

By now, everyone is sitting there going "why haven't the Oilers made a major trade deadline move yet?" Relax friends; a real move or two is coming. There's economics involved here. Mark Streit is the obvious trade target for the Oilers. I'd go so far as to suggest Streit and the Oilers have talked money already. They won't deal for him if his contract...
