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.
Goodbye, Nassau. Hello, Brooklyn. The Islanders will become the borough’s second professional sports franchise when they move to Barclays Center in 2015.
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.
The Islanders have had a cap floor budget for almost a year now. WFAN’s B.D. Gallof has learned that the bridles of that budget might be less restrictive for some free agency targets.
If there were any concerns about the state of the Islanders’ defensive prospects heading into last weekend’s draft, they’ve been addressed. And then some.
The New York Islanders used all seven of their picks in the NHL draft on defensemen, accomplishing general manager Garth Snow’s goal of improving their blue line.
The time has come for predictions for the NHL Draft. What will the Islanders do? When it comes to this franchise, conventional wisdom is often trumped by the system. Have no fear for I will explain it.
If you are looking for some of the most reliable NHL Draft rankings around, look no further than International Scouting Services. During a recent interview, ISS’s Dennis MacInnis shed some light on who the Islanders could draft.
The Islanders are at a crossroads. The rebuild is at a pivotal juncture. If Garth Snow doesn’t find a way to entice significant parts to this team via free agency this summer, this already untenable situation could get a whole lot worse.
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.
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.
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.
As the Monday NHL trade deadline approaches, it’s starting to become clear what to expect from the Islanders on the trade front.
Not much of anything.
For Islanders fans, the trade deadline is annually almost as frustrating as summer free agency. Fans seem to hold onto the dream that there is some magic pill to be swallowed here that will somehow solve all the team’s problems.
