Islanders Insight Top Shelf – He’s a Mystery to Me: 10/8/15

A new season of Islanders hockey will officially begin tomorrow night. And in what seems like an all-but-familiar unfortunate storyline, the New York Islanders are already going through injury issues. So if you had zero games in your “How many games until an Islander gets injured” poll – you win! (Surprisingly, that poll wasn’t on FanDuel or DraftKings…too soon?) All joking...

Now that the goal horn debate is over, can we start focusing on hockey? Is it time to be worried about Jaroslav Halak? When Jack Capuano was asked if Halak was in danger of missing the opener he responded, “We don’t know yet. Until we go through a full practice and I can talk to the trainers to see what they have to say, we don’t know what’s going to happen.” The trainers...

Jaroslav Halak was amazing in the month of November

Jaroslav Halak deserves to be named the NHL’s top player in the month of November. If you haven’t noticed, Halak is quietly putting on a show for the New York Islanders and has assisted in pushing the Isles up near the top of the Metropolitan Division.

New York Islanders: Top 5 free agents to target

Garth Snow already made a huge splash this offseason. Yes, I know, Jaroslav Halak is the only player that has been added to the team since the end of their abysmal season. Yesterday was a sign that Snow is nowhere near done retooling this team, though. Trading a conditional 5th round pick for an aging 38-year Dan Boyle seems silly. Not as absurd as you may think. Below are my top...

It's Halak to the rescue in Blues' 2-1 victory over Coyotes

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues are off to the best start in franchise history and keep finding ways to win despite a roster that hasn't been at full strength for much of the season. But there's still that one nagging question that no one knows the answer to, the query that likely can't or won't be answered for another few months. Maybe until it's too late. Do the Blues have the...
