Pierre LeBrun of ESPN answers some rant emails, I give up this year. The Islanders have ripped my heart out and thrown it in the gutter. Hockey gods, have mercy. My take: Honestly, and I’ve said this before, there is no fan I feel more empathy for than those of the Islanders. You talk about loyalty—and heartbreak. I really thought they might get in the playoffs this season. I look at the young core, and I see a team that would be knocking at the playoff door. Isles GM Garth Snow told me a few weeks ago that he had no intention (at least at that point) to move Evgeni Nabokov. But I think now that it’s clear the Isles won’t make the playoffs after Monday afternoon’s horrible loss at home to the Senators—another lost chance at narrowing the gap. So, if I were Snow, I would see what he can get for Nabokov. A second-round pick is a solid return. You can’t let Nabokov walk out the door July 1 and get nothing in return. more rants answered…

Presidents' Day, for many teams around the league, is often a day to reflect not only on the history of America's most newsworthy leaders, but to rest up and take stock in their current positions in the standings as the trade deadline approaches.

GARTH: Killer Miller

Ryan Miller is in the zone. 31 shots. 30 saves. A half dozen of which were Grade A, primo, point blank chances. Like this gem on Matt Moulson in the dying moments of a 2-1 game, late in the third period: Franz Neilsen had just scored to draw the Islanders to within a goal with a little less than five minutes to play in regulation. There have been times this season that Miller...
