Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 5|25|15

The Rangers have now been put into a corner, losing to the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 in yesterday’s Game 5. New York is now in a 3-2 series hole, and they must win out in order to play in the Stanley Cup Finals. Neither team did much on offense last night, as the neither the Lightning nor Rangers managed 30 shots on goal. The game was relatively even in the sense of pressure, with...

Nassau Coliseum’s Greatest Moment: 27 to 23

Some moments win games, some moments win championships, but very few professional sports organizations have produced a moment that sports historians can qualify as a moment that influenced an entire culture. The New York Islanders have. It doesn’t matter how long ago it was or what exactly a crosstown rival is doing in the playoffs right now if you want to appreciate its significance...

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: 5/23/15

I guess the New York Islanders were just not ready for prime time this season. After an incredible jump in the standings to 101 points and a hard-fought seven game elimination at the hands of the Washington Capitals, general manager Garth Snow, who has done a terrific job staying the course and rebuilding the franchise that Mike Milbury absolutely tore down, was not named as one...

Islanders: Triantaphilisms — 10 Things I Think I Think 5/22/15

The finalists for the NHL’s General Manager of the Year award are to be announced tonight before Game four of the Eastern Conference Finals and I’m going to go out on a limb and predict one of them to be a polarizing figure (for the New York Islanders fanbase, anyways). Love him or hate him, Garth Snow has made a tremendous impact on the Islanders for the 2014-15 campaign. Honestly...

Dal Colle Looks To Add More Silverware

Michael Dal Colle will only turn 19 years of age on June 20 of this year. He is already one of the most highly touted Islanders prospects to come along in quite some time, being selected in the first round, fifth overall, in the 2014 NHL entry draft. With three years of Ontario Hockey League play under his belt as a member of the Oshawa Generals, Dal Colle has amassed an amazing...

Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 5|22|15- Coaching Edition

All of the team’s coaching staff will be returning next season, which puts pressure on head coach Jack Capuano to perform. The Isles are undoubtedly on the rise, and if the team is not succeeding in the early stages of the 2015-16 season, the current head coach may very well find himself on a very short leash. However, after the season the team just had, it is too early to...

Kyle Okposo’s Future With Islanders To Be Decided

Time flies, doesn’t it? It feels like just yesterday when the New York Islanders locked up Kyle Okposo to a five-year, $14 million contract extension following the 2010-11 season. Islanders fans were thrilled that Okposo, then 22, would be staying on Long Island for the next half-decade at seemingly great value. At the time he inked the extension, Okposo was a budding star. Kyle...

John Spano, as many Islanders fans already know, is not one to always tell the truth. Spending nearly six years in prison after convincing banks a whopping 80 million dollars to purchase the Isles at the franchise’s lowest point, Spano has not been one to follow the law when it comes to economics. You would think one would learn his or her lesson after spending serious time in...

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. But there is still work to do. Two main fixtures are...

Islanders: Triantaphilisms — 10 Things I Think I Think 5/15/15

It’s quiet…too quiet. As the Stanley Cup Playoffs dwindle down to its final four teams, the New York Islanders have been silent. This is the kind of silence that gets me thinking whether or not the Islanders are going to find themselves in the news sooner than later. Of course, it’s all speculation; however, thinking back to last season, Islanders general manager Garth Snow...
