Final Thoughts of the 2014-15 Isles and Moving On

View From Section 317's picture

I’m very late so I will make this this brief and try not to beat a horse that has been dead for a while now. Here are just a few final thoughts about the 2014-15 New York Islanders season and moving forward in the offseason.

The overall season: The Islanders finished the regular season with 101 points. I barely recall the last time that happened. I loved the amount of depth that the team had and I was one of those that believed the Isles could make a run to the Conference Finals this year just for that reason alone. Players like the “Kid Line” (Strome, Nelson, Lee) matured in front of our eyes and we had a goalie that helped take the Islanders to one of the top teams in the east. The Coliseum was rocking every night and, despite a few injuries, you could not have asked for a better send off to the old barn.

For the second time in three seasons, New York Islanders captain John Tavares has been named a finalist for the Hart Memorial Trophy, annually awarded to the “player judged most valuable to his team” in the National Hockey League, and it’s pretty remarkable when you think about it.

With the season now over for the New York Islanders, news on the injury front was released. It came as no surprise that Travis Hamonic had a torn MCL that doctors thought could have had him sidelined for eight weeks. However, the defenseman has been rehabbing, and according to Arthur Staple of Newsday, is feeling great. Hamonic was even hopeful to appear in the second round of the playoffs, had the Islanders advanced.

Season Review from a Fans Point a View

View From Section 317's picture

After the lost in game 7, Islanders fans have a little to celebrate and a little to be sad about.

For me one thing I could celebrate is that even though we might have lost in the first round of the playoffs, I personally thought that the team proved to every NHL hockey team that they aren’t just the Islanders, who are from Long Island and aren’t a team that should be respected because of the players they have, well the Islanders have proved the haters wrong all season long.

With having a rookie like Anders Lee on the team during the year, he helped the team in front of the net with blocking the other teams goalie so his teammates could score is a great example how the fans should celebrate the season.

Another reason why we should be celebrating this year as Islanders fans is because Garth Snow did something amazing. He signed Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk for seven more years.
