Josh Bailey, Islanders finishing up strong

The Islanders are 5-0-1 in their last six games, and although most observers would agree it is too little, too late, at least the alternative scenario for a team out of the playoffs seems to have been avoided. "Certainly, packing it in wasn't an option," Josh Bailey said. "We weren't going to let that happen, [Jack Capuano] wasn't a coach to let it happen...

Dee Karl: Josh Bailey Files for Arbitration

Just as Matt Moulson did, Josh Bailey has filed for salary arbitration after he was extended his qualifying offer. I would normally be nervous or upset with this sort of thing, however, after learning that it (could be) should be just a part of 'the process,' I'm not going to read too much into it this time. Josh Bailey wants to be here, the Islanders want him to...

Dee Karl: The Maturation of Josh Bailey

Josh Bailey Helps Islanders Make Statement Playing With ‘Playoff Purpose’ Against Bruins (Video)

The Bruins could have clinched a playoff spot against the Islanders with a win or overtime loss Thursday night. Josh Bailey had other ideas. The New York center scored two goals to lead the Isles to a 2-1 victory over the punchless Bruins, who looked gassed on the tail end of their final back-to-back of the year. Still, it was an important win for New York not only because they are...

Islanders' Bailey is ready to take a step forward

There are teams across the NHL ready to spend money on high-profile free agents such as longtime Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan, or to trade away a slew of prospects for a star scorer such as the Columbus Blue Jackets' Rick Nash. The New York Islanders have the need for such players, but they aren't in the market for those type of stars. Strapped with a more stringent...
