Friedman: Islanders Better Not Play Games With Their Best Young Players

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.

Friedman: Isles Not Nearly The Trainwreck Everyone Thought Without Tavares

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.

Friedman: Led By Strome, Islanders’ Reinforcements Are Stepping Up

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.

Report: Islanders Have No Plans To Fire Capuano — For Now

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?

Friedman: Islanders Continue To Lose, But The Kids Are Alright

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.

Friedman: Why Did Islanders Bounce Strome To Bridgeport?

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.

Islanders Name 23-Man Roster — Reinhart In, Strome Sent To Bridgeport

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.

Friedman: Islanders’ Western Canada Experience Shows There’s Work To Do

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.

Friedman: New York Islanders Training Camp Preview

The Isles need to have someone else to lean on besides Evgeni Nabokov. That’s where Kevin Poulin comes in.
