Islanders Prospects Find No Success This Saturday

It had to happen sooner or later because given the number of New York Islanders prospects and the many games that make up a season that a night would come along that would make one go “ewwww”. There is, however a silver lining in all of this and that is that it took more than half a season for the Islander prospects to have one of these bad nights. Robbie Russo (2011 fourth rd...

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 76

For the first time in four months I can honestly say that you are lucky if you are not on Long Island right now. With no Islanders hockey and this snow/slush mixture making traffic…and humans even more unbearable, it truly is my own personal slice of purgatory. At least I can take some solace in seeing the NHL Skills Competition later today. I’ll probably watch that more than...

Islanders Find Their Missing Piece(s)

The NHL’s All-Star break is an opportunity for reflection and for the Islanders one needn’t look further than Garth Snow’s acquisitions of Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy as huge keys to their first-half success.  If anyone kept to their NHL “Things-To-Do-In-The-Offseason” list, it was the Isles GM. Jaroslav Halak was acquired from the Washington Capitals for a 4th round...

Dal Colle Continues To Shine

Friday night was a “good news”, “not so good news” kind of evening for the New York Islander prospects. The “good news” is that the two prospects who have been having excellent seasons, Michael Dal Colle (2014 first rd.) of the Oshawa Generals and Stephon Williams (2013 fourth rd.) kept up their high level of play. The “not so good news” starts with an almost automatic...

Islanders: Triantaphilisms — 10 Things I Think I Think 1/23/15

The New York Islanders sit in first-place in the Metropolitan Division at the All-Star break, the first time the Islanders have been atop their division this late in the season since 1990. Let’s think about how long ago this actually was together. I wasn’t born yet; Fisherman jerseys weren’t even a thought; Teemu Selanne and Martin Brodeur had not yet reached the NHL, and Toronto...

It’s off to Columbus for the National Hockey League’s 48 All-Stars, as the five-day NHL All-Star break has begun. For the New York Islanders, these five days should be used as a time to reflect, and recharge the batteries for the final stretch of the 2014-15 season. The selections of John Tavares and Jaroslav Halak to the All-Star Game should be taken as a notion of respect...

Halfway Home: ‘Insight’ into the Isles at the Break

So we’ve arrived to the official halfway mark of the 2014-15 hockey season and the New York Islanders are playing well, with areas in need of improvement, of course, but, nonetheless, surpassing past years and the shortcomings that accompanied them. Thus, in the spirit of analysis and retrospection,  I’ve asked the entire Isles Insight team to share with me and you, the reader...

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 79

How long can one human possibly twiddle their thumbs? It seems a lot of Islanders fans are doing that, or just flat-out being impatient as the All-Star break has delayed Nassau Coliseum hockey for a week. I can’t provide much of an alternative, for I will never be as entertaining as this team, but I’ll do my best and hopefully you’ll keep your tomato throwing and torch lighting...

New York Islanders: By The Numbers (Vol. 4)

Something strange is happening. With each addition of “By the Numbers,” the New York Islanders seem to get better and better. Coincidence? 100%. But let’s just assume these have some magical powers behind them. The Islanders have played 46 games and head into the All-Star break atop the tight Metropolitan Division with 63 points. They’ve reached 30 wins in franchise-record...

Islanders Need to ‘Backup’ Their Winning Ways

There’s nothing remiss in saying that the New York Islanders have a goaltending issue to remedy. It’s not a problem, but it’s an issue that can become one in relative short order. Backup goaltender and former Boston Bruin Chad Johnson is not living up to his expectations, much to the dismay of all those involved. There’s nothing salvageable from his play at the moment, with...

Josh Bailey Is Thriving On The Isles’ Top Line

The New York Islanders have one of the best offenses in the NHL, in fact they have the second best offense in the entire league. Let that sink in for a moment. Yes, it’s true, the Isles sport the second best offense posting 3.2 goals per tilt and they show absolutely no signs of stopping anytime soon. In fact, they’ve been picking up the pace lately and could soon be the best...

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 80

It’s nice to see that this team isn’t getting pushed around like it used to the past decade. The 2014-15 edition of the New York Islanders has grit, they do not take much from any opponent and when the bodies start flying, it’s the blue and orange that tend to do the punishing. From what I’m told, that’s what it was like back in the glory days. Sure, it might have not...

The New York Islanders are 31-14-1 (63 pts) through their first 43 games of the season; 15-2 against Metro Division competition—a 9-0 record at home against divisional play. Then there’s: 4th in GF, 21st GA, 14th on the PP, and a 21st ranked PK unit.  Those are the Islanders in the most general of nutshells. But what’s lost in the shuffle (and amid the inexorable anxiety...

Islanders Ground Flyers 7-4 Heading Into Break

TONIGHT’S RECAP To analyze the first period statistically, you would think the Flyers would be the ones who jumped out to a 2-0 lead at the intermission. Philadelphia led in shots, attempts and faceoffs and had some nice runs of play in the offensive zone. But New York would be the ones to capitalize on their opportunities. Michael Grabner got things going when he took a delicious...
