Islanders Insight Top Shelf: No News is Good News, Right? (7/29/15)

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: No News is Good News Every time there’s a trade, especially in the Metropolitan Division, Islander fans get in a tizzy. Most years, this would be understandable.

Charged Up: Rutherford Improves Bottom Six

  Having Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin on your hockey team is a pretty amazing thing to boast. But as the Penguins learned when they won the Stanley Cup in 2009, having Crosby, Malkin, and a quality, cost-friendly supporting cast took things from regular amazing to best-in-the-world amazing. That part of the recipe, the ability to consistently roll four lines, has been severely...

Would You Trade Brandon Sutter For Frans Nielsen? by @ChicksDigHockey

I am a Brandon Sutter fan. I’ll always love Crosby and Malkin but give me a good bottom six guy any day. I guess I’m just partial to the gritty blue collar player who adds character as well as skill.  Give me a role player like Sutter or Max Talbot or Mike Rupp any day! Role players are as essential to a team’s success as goal scorers are. They won’t appear as such on...

RECAP: Game 82. Brandon Sutter and Marc-Andre Fleury save the season. Pens win 2-0.

Brandon Sutter is soft. He is probably one of the worst third-line centers in the NHL. But damn it all. He scored one goal, got hit in the face with a puck, got some stitches, and then came back and scored another. We’ve jobbed Sutter all year long. But he stepped up in the biggest game of the season. Nothing else you can say. But he wasn’t the number-one star. That was Marc...
