Islanders: Triantaphilisms — 10 Things I Think I Think 6/19/15

I miss hockey. Anyways, the 10 things I think I think heading into the weekend… 1) Seeing the current asking prices in this trade market, I’m thinking the Islanders have a relatively quiet summer. I’m not going to say they’re going to do nothing, but I’m not convinced they make any huge splashes, as they did last October. I guess we shall see. I’m probably wrong. 2) Phil...

The Islanders are finally done paying Alexei Yashin

The story has become infamous. The New York Islanders acquired star forward Alexei Yashin in 2001 at an amazingly high cost, trading future Norris Trophy winner Zdeno Chara, the 2011 second overall pick (which turned out to be Jason Spezza) and Bill Muckalt for the Russian forward. If dealing those youngsters wasn’t enough, New York general manager Mike Milbury inked Yashin to...

Islanders Free Of Alexei Yashin

Remember Alexei Yashin? That’s an absurd question, because of course you do. How could you forget? Yashin was initially a beacon of hope when the New York Islanders acquired him from the Ottawa Senators before the 2001-02 season. The acquisition was not at a cheap price – an under-developed Zdeno Chara, the second-overall pick in the 2001 draft (Jason Spezza) and Bill Muckalt...

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 79

How long can one human possibly twiddle their thumbs? It seems a lot of Islanders fans are doing that, or just flat-out being impatient as the All-Star break has delayed Nassau Coliseum hockey for a week. I can’t provide much of an alternative, for I will never be as entertaining as this team, but I’ll do my best and hopefully you’ll keep your tomato throwing and torch lighting...

The Islanders’ Alexei Yashin nightmare finally ends after 2014-15

The Islanders are guaranteed to have at least one thing to celebrate at the end of the 2014-15 season. No, that doesn’t mean they’ll win the Cup or even make the playoffs. That statement refers to the fact Alexei Yashin finally comes off the books at the end of the season after what seems like an eternity for the Islanders. Yashin last skated in the NHL back in 2006-07, but the...

Rick DiPietro, Alexei Yashin Headline Worst Moves Made By Islanders (Photos)

The New York Islanders are definitely not a hockey organization known for making the best trades to improve their team. In fact, the team’s trade history probably reads like a horror story to its fans. From the organization’s most recent blunder with Thomas Vanek, to infamous, big-money deals that didn’t work out, the Islanders would probably lose if they played a game against...
