New York Islanders Daily: Three Goalie System Destroyed Halak

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders three goalie situation was a disaster from the start. It wasn’t smart to stick with it for as long as they did. Jaroslav Halak now finds himself in the AHL after a rough start to the 2016-2017 season. What was the cause for his struggles? A three goalie system certainly had […]

New York Islanders: Breaking Josh Ho-Sang

Islanders Insight's picture

Josh Ho-Sang rejects conformity and the New York Islanders don’t like it. Josh Ho-Sang is not the epitome of what the New York Islanders want in their players. Sure, he’s got the skill and even the drive to be a successful NHL player, but he is never going to be a ‘yes man’. Ho-Sang is […]

New York Islanders Daily: Held Back By Lack of Consistency

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders have played much better hockey lately, but one thing is still holding them back, and that’s consistency. One of my quotes about the New York Islanders this year is that they’ve been consistently inconsistent. It’s been arguably their biggest flaw as they are currently a .500 team at 15-15-6. Arthur Staple […]

New York Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic is happy that he rescinded his trade request last May. He feels he made the right choice.

New York Islanders: Again With The Duchene Rumors

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders need top six talent up front to complement their superstar center. So, naturally, when a top six forward is said to be on the market the Isles are immediately linked. Even if the rumor has been around since the start of the season. It’s a tale seemingly as old as time, […]

New York Islanders Not Changing the Coaching Staff Yet

New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano has been bench boss for the better part of six years now. But one bad January won’t mean that he’ll immediately get the axe. It’s 2017 now! Which means it’s time to bust out those bold predictions for this new calendar year! How about this one: Jack Capuano will […]

Isles Talk Rumor Roundup: Matt Duchene & Gabriel Landeskog

View From Section 317's picture

From the Score.com

New York Islanders

For the sake of his job and any hopes the New York Islanders might have of making the playoffs, Garth Snow should be inquiring about Duchene or Landeskog.

The club currently sits with the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference, a year after reaching the second round of the playoffs. This past year the Islanders watched as last season’s second- and third-highest scorers – Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen – elected to go elsewhere.

Given that Andrew Ladd has also disappointed since signing as a free agent, the team could use more offensive help. As collateral, this past summer Travis Hamonic made headlines after reportedly requesting a trade.

Hamonic has since rescinded the request, but should talks between the two clubs take place, he could be a part of a package going back to Colorado.

New York Islanders Get A Bye Week

Don’t worry, you’re not going crazy. The New York Islanders aren’t back on the ice until Friday when they face the Colorado Avalanche on the road. This isn’t some scheduling flaw. This is the NHL’s bye-week. The NHL schedule is one heck of a marathon. An 82 game slog stretched out over seven calendar months. […]

Sports Talk 1240 radio hosts & Isles Talk alumni Gary Harding and John Panarese sat down with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers play-by-play announcer Alan Fuehring. They discussed the new goalie situation, how Bracken Kearns and Scott Mayfield are looked upon as leaders on the team, how Ryan Pulock has been playing since coming back from injuries and the rest of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The guys also talk about the Islanders and what they need to do away from the Barclays Center. Here are a few ice chips from the show:

John: What is your opinion of Michael Dal Colle?

Alan: I’ve been really impressed on how he’s played. He brings a lot of energy to the line up, shows he a 5th overall pick, his shot is one of the best I’ve ever seen.

The New York Islanders have had a scoring resurgence as of late, and it’s not coming from the captain. They’ve got scoring from a variety of sources.

The 2016 calendar year was an exciting one for many Islanders fans. There were obviously some ups and downs, but there was more good than bad that came out of the year. Not to mention, the Islanders ended the year in fine style. The Islanders’ final 16 games were successful for a struggling bunch, who managed to regain their footing in the standings going 9-5-2 to wrap up 2016.

Blog: Isles Have A Perect Storm Approaching

View From Section 317's picture

To all the Islanders fans, I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve. I wish nothing but the best for you as we embark into 2017. It’s a new year and it just quite possibly be a new season of sorts for the New York Islanders. New York responded well after sending former starting goalie, Jaroslav Halak, to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL as they beat Winnipeg Jets yesterday with a convincing 6-2 win. Thomas Greiss started in net and earned his ninth win of the season. He will now resume the number one goalie position for the foreseeable future and the timing could not be any better. As a matter of fact, the entire Islanders team coming together looks like a perfect storm about ready to blow.
