Poll Update: Who should Snow/Gordon cut

NYI Fan Central's picture

The official return of our polls at NYIFC is off to a good start.

This weeks poll put you in the place of general manager Garth Snow and head coach Scott Gordon where you decide who you would cut if it were up to you.

The poll winds down around the time the club finishes up the preseason but already we have had one waiver pickup and the injuries adding up fast and furiously with some Bridgeport players recalled.

Hockey returns to the Coliseum!

growingupwiththeisles's picture

But I never said it would be good hockey.

The first game since April at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum was today at 7 P.M. It was a pre-season game vs the New Jersey Devils. The Islanders got shut out, 3-0. I'm not going to try and defend our play, but the Devils did have their NHL lineup out, including Brodeur, while the Islanders, well... didn't.

"Healthy Scratches," as announced at the game, were Hilbert, Park, Bergenheim, Guerin and Weight. Sutton, Sillinger, Campoli, Gervais, and DiPietro did not play either.

I'm going to give you a breakdown of each offensive line, from my view.

Hockey is BACK at The Barn!

Islesblogger's picture

It may look empty now, but in a few hours hockey is back at Nassau Coliseum as the Islanders are set to take on the New Jersey Devils at 7pm. I couldn’t help but snap a quick picture of the Barn as I was passing this morning - I happen to pass a handful of times a week in my endless travel all over Nassau.

York’s Woes Continue

Islesblogger's picture

Forward Mike York has seen the ups and downs during his career, no arguing that point. His time with the Islanders was split between good and bad, his time with the Rangers - also less than memorable.

During his worst struggles, the Islanders sent him packing to Philly where he still couldn’t find his game. He then spent a year in Phoenix, signed a deal with Russia in July of this summer after no NHL interest and finally balked on that contract to sign with Columbus.

Islanders to Change Goal Song

Islesblogger's picture

Just browsing the boards this morning, I caught this post over at Islander Mania from Chris Dey. Apparently, after all the years of speculation, voting and complaining by fans (some, not all) the Islanders have finally decided to act and change the Gary Glitter song - to something completely custom made, which should be interesting.

For those of you not able to see the post over there, here is it in it’s entirety:

Newsday: Greg Logan's article is on forward Jeff Tambellini with comparisons to how things worked under Ted Nolan vs Scott Gordon as he the left wing praised Frans Nielsen for how well he has looked.

Mr Logan had more speculation on when Rick DiPietro could be cleared to play which could come by the weekend but given the clubs injury policy just does not know.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

A Few Tough Questions for New York

NYI Fan Central's picture

A short while back I wrote about trends regarding this year's Islander team during preseason and at the time felt as long as they are competitive in games which they have been there are no problems that cannot be fixed.

I'm finding a disconcerting trend that goes beyond this.

This year's camp and preseason has introduced a new element or two into that mix that is a cause for concern with it's injuries that are at a point where our new coach plays preseason games in survival mode in the hope no one else gets injured.
