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.

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

Lichtenstein: Forgive Me For Not Celebrating Islanders’ Move Out Of Nassau

Forgive me if I don’t celebrate with Michael Bloomberg, Marty Markowitz and Charles Wang. Brooklyn is better than Quebec, but it still feels like another punch to the soul for the true fans of a once-proud franchise.

Islanders to Brooklyn

Gallof: Nassau County’s Perpetual Dysfunction Drove The Islanders Away

To the fair-weather fan or perhaps the former Islanders players who did not follow the storylines, it seems a travesty that Nassau County has lost its hockey team. To just about everyone else paying attention, going to Brooklyn was a no-brainer.

Gallof: Bad News Islanders Fans, New Nassau Coliseum Plan Is Fatally Flawed

If you find positives in Nassau County’s new plan to renovate the area where the Islanders currently play, I have an old and dilapidated coliseum to sell you. This latest attempt to keep the NHL where it currently resides is pie in the sky.

Capellini: Islanders Make Smart Decisions In Early Stages Of Free Agency

After just one day of the NHL’s annual spending spree, the natural impulse for Islanders fans is to roll their eyes and mutter to their friends that, as usual, there’s nothing to see here. Well, they’d be wrong.
