For weeks and weeks, we’ve talked about the glut of forwards the Islanders have under contract and the insane amount of depth they have in that department. It’s a great problem to have, but one they need to solve — soon.
The Islanders are set to begin training camp and, albeit for different reasons than last year, are doing so amid a typhoon of optimism and potential.
If Ryan Strome, Anders Lee and Griffin Reinhart are going to be a big part of the Islanders’ core and they have enough to get by at the NHL level right now, they need to be on the team in 2014-15, plain and simple.
Frans Nielsen, Josh Bailey and Ryan Strome scored in the shootout, and the Islanders beat the New Jersey 3-2 in what might have been Devils goalie Martin Brodeur’s final start.
When John Tavares went down for the season no one thought the Islanders would be remotely watchable, let alone competitive. However, just the opposite has occurred.
Scottie Upshall scored twice in the third period as part of a four-goal Panthers surge and Florida downed the New York Islanders 5-3 on Sunday.
The 20-year-old center, who was the No. 5 overall pick by the Islanders back in 2011, had just a goal and three assists during his one-month stay with the big club.
Ryan Strome should’ve been an Islander in October, but he’s here now and he’s making a difference. And he’s not the only reason the team’s been better of late.
Fresh off their first playoff appearance in six years, the Islanders have won just nine of their first 32 games. Logic suggests a substantial change should be coming, right?
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Ryan Strome has been recalled from Bridgeport and is expected to make his NHL debut Thursday when the New York Islanders take on the Coyotes in Phoenix. Strome leads the AHL […]
Strome has been ripping up the American Hockey League. He leads the AHL in scoring with 33 points and has won the last two AHL Player of the Week awards.
If the Islanders are going to snap out of this funk, they must adopt an all-hands-on-deck mentality. I’ll say this, though, the kids have done their part.
It became obvious to me that both Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson deserved to make the cut. However, the better player didn’t get the job, as far as I’m concerned.
The club released its 23-man roster on Monday and, perhaps in a somewhat surprising move the Isles chose to keep young defenseman Griffin Reinhart on the big club while sending sniper-in-waiting Ryan Strome to Bridgeport.
Since the start of training camp, we’ve learned a lot about this team. We’ll learn even more in the days and weeks to come, especially about who will be Evgeni Nabokov’s understudy.
