Things are quiet on Long Island, as nothing is new other than…oh yeah this — a lawsuit over a Coliseum sublease. Although we are nearing the end of the dormant period of the offseason, it still lingers, and I speak for all hockey fans here: October cannot come soon enough. The lull in news has been maddening, especially with the anticipation of a new era in Brooklyn. However...

Islanders: Looking Ahead At Cap Situation

General manager Garth Snow has done a marvelous job to this point managing the New York Islanders salary cap situation, signing many integral pieces to ‘cap-friendly’ long-term deals and locking up essential pieces to the future success of the franchise with the extensions given last season to Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy.

Changes on the Horizon For The Islanders In Game 3

Friday night’s game is just that, Friday night’s game. The Islanders must learn from it and move on. It was about more than broken sticks. It was about puck management, clearing the zone, and taking advantage of an inexperienced goalie. The Islanders did not do much of any of those. Coach Jack Capuano, who is usually not that demonstrative behind the bench, nearly blew a gasket...

Islanders: Triantaphilisms — 10 Things I Think I Think 4/3/15

The New York Islanders have been the least-bit convincing during the final quarter of the 2014-15 season, so it should be discouraging for the organization and the fans to watch what this team has done since the last rendition of this column. On paper, a 1-1-1 record over three games is exactly what it looks like. It’s not good or bad, but alright. Three points out of a possible...

Islanders’ Ideal Playoff Lineup

All season long there have been many discussions over what the ideal New York Islanders‘ lineup should look like. There has been two main staples in this argument; put Ryan Strome with John Tavares and of course the opposition who would say, “don’t put all of your eggs in the same basket.” With the playoffs coming and the team in a bit of a funk it may just be time to throw...
