Capellini: Islanders Employing Slow And Steady Wins The Race Approach

The Islanders have been active this offseason, but maybe not in the way you had hoped. Don’t sweat it. They are improved and could get better as the summer progresses.

Capellini: Streit Did Islanders Right, But It Was Time For Him To Go

Mark Streit’s days on Long Island are basically over, but it’s by no means a death sentence for the Islanders. They just need to play their many cards in the right hand.

Gallof: Islanders’ Playoff Story Ends, But A Better Team Looms On The Horizon

The Isles will assess and look to see what they can improve on this summer. However, the shopping list that has excited fans on Twitter, message boards and in regular conversation is simply unrealistic.

Capellini: Islanders Must Deviate From Formula And Get Aggressive This Summer

For the first time in ages the Islanders are not in rebuilding mode. They are in re-tooling mode. That’s an alien concept to many, but it’s the truth, and they need to act on it.

Gallof: 5 Reasons The Islanders Made The Playoffs

All season I’ve stated the Islanders needed 54 points to make the playoffs. They have used a 7-0-3 run to get there. But where they are now can be attributed to many more factors, all of which had to happen.

Capellini: Islanders Are On A Righteous Path To A Future With No Floor

Is this a coming-of-age story? You’re damn right it is. What the Islanders have done over the last six weeks is basically force the rest of the NHL to open its eyes and pay attention.

Gallof: What To Expect From Islanders Before Trade Deadline Passes

Ok, so how are we going to keep this interesting? Because, to be quite blunt, the addition of Anders Lee to the NHL club from college is about as much action as Isles fans are going to get.

Capellini: Lame Duck Status At Home Totally Messing With Islanders’ Mojo

Psychologically, the Islanders play at home like they, too, are expecting the roof to cave in. They are now an incredible 5-11-2 at the Coliseum, by far the worst home record in the NHL. But yet they are 8-4-1 on the road.

Gallof: Despite All The Melodrama, Islanders Are Hanging In There

Who are the 2013 Islanders? That’s hard to say at this point. But they are nearly halfway through their schedule and need to find out soon, or it will be another lost spring on Long Island.

Rick DiPietro

Capellini: DiPietro Will Be Forever Defined By An Offer He Couldn’t Refuse

What Rick DiPietro did back in September 2006 was probably what any of us would have done. He secured his future. And anyone who blames him for that, regardless of how his career turned out, is just a fool.

Gallof: Islanders Are Red, Fans Are Blue, Capuano Has 2 Games To Fix This Losing Stew

He might have just two games to notch a win. No coach lives comfortably with a multi-game losing streak. Seven in a row could be the last straw for Capuano here in Islanders Country.

Capellini: Tavares IS The Islanders, Because He Wants To Be

For all the misfortune that seems to follow the Islanders around, it’s often easy to overlook the fact that they employ one of the NHL’s true shooting stars.
