What Nassau Coliseum Means To Me

Islanders Insight's picture

In July of 2015, the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum will exist no more. It will be torn down, renovated, refinished… however you look at it, the barn will never be the same again. My first time at Nassau Coliseum was when I was the ripe old age of 6. It was an Islanders game against […]

Matt Martin: The Most Expendable Islander?

Islanders Insight's picture

Ever since he broke into the league back in the 2009-10 season, Matt Martin has been a fan favorite, especially with the female assemblage of Islanders fans. I will be the first to admit that I am a huge fan of Martin and the way he carries himself both on and off the ice. He’s […]

Goodbye Peter, Hello Shannon

MSG Announced that they have replaced Peter Ruttgaizer with FoxSports broadcaster Shannon Hogan. Maybe she'll be the next Deb Kaufman Placey! It's great to see another female NHL broadcaster hit the airwaves. I wish her good luck on MSG with the Isles.

Hockey from the Blind Side, Some Thoughts from the West Coast

As some are aware, I am currently out in California on business. I have been fortunate enough to have gotten contracted to do some work directly with Apple and have spent the last few weeks out here in Sunnyval earning my pay.

This situation has effected my ability to write, and I am going to have stretches in the future in which my contributions will be infrequent. It can’t be helped, though, of course, I will do my best to support the site, especially when the season starts. I’ll have to come back out here a few times a year, and ironically, I am only about ten minutes away from the home of the San Jose Sharks.

The list runs from names such as Bob Nystrom, who was with the team from the start and achieved great postseason success as an Islander to modern day players who have been great in their own right, but haven’t achieved much […]
