John Tavares Ready For Training Camp

from Cory Wright of the Islanders website, For a born winner and fierce competitor like John Tavares, a six-month summer break is just too long.

Why the New York Islanders missed the playoffs

To say this year was a disappointment for the Islanders is to say last year was an amusement. The 2013 season was a full-on thrill in Uniondale, a heady reawakening of a franchise and a fanbase that culminated in the team’s first playoff appearance in seven years. Last year was as much an “amusement ride” as Japan’s Takabisha coaster. This year, then, was as much a disappointment...

John Tavares injury exhibits NHL's Olympic dilemma but risk is still worth reward

Islanders center John Tavares will miss the rest of the season due to an injury suffered while suiting up for Team Canada in Sochi. His owner, Charles Wang, surely can't be happy to be losing the team's star player. Plenty of owners don't want their players going to the Olympic games for just the case of what happened to Tavares. They argue that games and practices are...
