Green Lantern: Jets Need To Rally Around Fitzpatrick And Put An End To The Drama

Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be a star, but he’s a more accomplished quarterback than Geno Smith. And as far as the Jets are concerned, that should be good enough for the time being.

Capellini: Sweet-Swinging Gregorius Rewarding The Yankees For Their Patience

Brock Nelson

Capellini: Islanders’ Lack Of Impact Moves So Far This Offseason Is A Troubling Sign

The Isles bowed out in the first round of last season’s playoffs following a 101-point season in which they limped to the finish line. Their solution so far this offseason has been to do basically nothing.

Sheldon Richardson

Green Lantern: Richardson Is Great, But May Be More Trouble To Jets Than He’s Worth

Andrea Pirlo

Capellini: With The Pirlo Party Set To Begin, NYCFC Fans Are In For Quite A Ride

Some may say Andrea Pirlo’s time with New York City FC will be nothing more than a glorified farewell tour, but the truth is he still has the chops to be a headliner, at least for the time being.

Capellini: With McCann A New Man, Yankees Are Finally Getting What They Paid For

Remember when Brian McCann was labeled as a player who couldn’t cut it in New York? That was a long time ago, it seems. These days, it’s hard to imagine the Yankees succeeding without him.

Capellini: In The End It Was A Bishop — Not A King — That Ruled The Garden

If fans and media are going to continue to insist on calling Henrik Lundqvist the “king,” it’s only appropriate they start addressing Ben Bishop properly. “Kingslayer” perhaps?

Green Lantern: Jets’ Offseason Party Was A Rager — Until The QBs Showed Up

Mike Maccagnan has given Jets fans a reason to believe, but as long as the most important position on the field remains a crapshoot, the real expectations cannot begin.

Jaroslav Halak

Capellini: Islanders’ Chances In Game 7 Come Down To 2 Words — Jaroslav Halak

Capellini: Islanders’ Fourth Line Having A Ball Bringing The Boom To The Capitals

The Islanders came out like guided missiles to begin Game 3, launching themselves at everything that moved. And to absolutely no one’s surprise, the fourth line led the way.

Capellini: With An Effort Most Didn’t Expect, Islanders Grew Up In A Hurry In Game 1

The Islanders were simply a different team in Game 1 than the one that went just 6-8-5 over the season’s final quarter. They imposed their will against the Capitals.

Capellini: Islanders Are Doing An Absolutely Wonderful Job Making A Mess Of Everything

It happened so fast on Tuesday night, there wasn’t time to feel much of anything except total shock. The anger came later.
