For Islanders fans, you are once again on the outside looking in, but, despite all of the franchise’s problems, the on-ice product is a lot closer to being a serious force than many would have you believe.

Gallof: The Bad, The Ugly And What To Expect From Islanders Next Season

OK, we’ve put this off long enough. It’s time to talk about what the Islanders did on the ice this season. Its time to face facts, look beyond the stats, and make some calls on what we will see this summer and next season.

Gallof: For Islanders, Sticking Around Starting To Look Less Probable

More than a year ago an Islanders source warned me that the minority percentage of possible suitors outside of New York would rapidly climb. Eventually, that person said, this idea might even reverse, and become the bigger possibility. Well, it’s starting.

Capellini: Light At The End Of Islanders’ Dark Tunnel Fast Becoming Just A Wish

It just feels like the Islanders are simply passing time until they die. Morale among the faithful is at an all-time low, and considering all the absurdities that have gone on over the last 15 or so years, that’s saying something.

Gallof: Islanders Have But A Glimmer Of Hope Left In Nassau County

If the Islanders and Nassau County are to ever get together on a new plan to keep the team where it is, it appears the window for such a meeting of the minds has now been stretched closer to 2013.

Gallof: A New Home? Don’t Believe The Hype, Islanders Fans

The Islanders playing a preseason game in Brooklyn next season has created a stir, but don’t expect it to blossom into something long term. There seems to be simply too many roadblocks ahead preventing a permanent relocation.

Gallof: Islanders May Move On From DiPietro Sooner Rather Than Later

Rick DiPietro is shrinking and sadly hobbling before our eyes as chronic injuries have basically made him barely a backup goalie if you judge him on stats and play alone, forgetting any contract. Yet the Islanders may very well get a window to send him on his way.

Capellini: Islanders’ Putrid Start Is The Very Disaster That Simply Couldn’t Happen

Inexplicably, we are 18 games into the season and the Islanders are once again the laughingstocks of the NHL. It’s simply unbelievable and inexcusable.

When the Islanders come up in conversation most people who have a clue about the NHL usually mention one of two things: rebuilding or no building. Jack Capuano appears to be just about winning.
