Islanders Insight Top Shelf: Oh Well 12/6/2015

Before we begin on this Sunday morning in December, remember that I tend to lean to the light side while some tend to be more followers of the dark side (geeky Star Wars reference…anyone else super excited for the 18th?). Anyone who has been reading me for a little bit knows that already but  I figured a little disclaimer never hurt anyone. In fact, it probably even saved thousands...

In the process, the Isles had kept a red hot Mike Hoffman off the scoreboard, Jaroslav Halak looked like he was on his way to his third shutout...

The New York Islanders four game winning streak came to a crashing halt last night as the Boston Bruins came into Brooklyn and took advantage of some loose defensive play in the second period en route to a 5-3 victory. Things started out all fine and dandy when the Islanders took a 2-1 lead into the intermission but Calvin de Haan had an especially rough second period, missing an...

But, with each year, the guys put up stats that add to the legacy of the number they wear on their back. Some numbers have a tremendous history, while others have only been worn by a single person.

Lack Of Roster Turnover Just Fine With Islanders

It is no secret that over the past two seasons the Islanders have improved their roster and created competition throughout the depth chart. I know it is only August and injuries have not played a part yet (they always do) but while the entire group of forwards are completely healthy it is fun to explore certain scenarios. One situation I have contemplated is where Michael Grabner...

The New York Islanders offseason checklist is getting smaller two days after the start of free agency.
