Could you imagine if they actually had a good talent evaluator ( not a backup goalie as GM ). With all these top 5 draft picks they could have been building another dynasty...what a waste.....
Sigh.... This team is more pathetic to watch than the Jets.
Is Snow going to fire another coach ??!!....Hey Garth, time to look in the mirror....
Im not a baseball fan, but someone on an isles board wrote
"With my many years of experience as a Mets/Jets/Isles fan my rule is have fun but expect the worst at all times.. Enjoy the victories it's ok to have hope and root/cheer/go crazy wanting them to win but at the same time know that god hates you and you'll never ever be happy so it's not going to last. "
Lighten up, fellas......if you're going to b$tch and whine when they don't play we'll, at least show up when they rattle off 2 impressive wins in a row. Name me 1 player on the Devils or Rangers you'd trade for John Tavares right now..you can't be there isn't one. He's arguably a top 5 player in hockey at the age of 22, and he's an Islander and will be for a long time. The Isles finished at or close to .500 last year if I recall, and despite a nasty 5 game slide this year, they're only 2 points out of a playoff spot
I choose optimism
And Brooklyn is ON Long Island...what most turds don't know is LI is made up of 4 counties- Kings, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk.
Two nice wins on the road. One more and they're at .500....unlike past years, they can score with anyone. Just need to be more consistent in their own end.
After losing 5 in a row, the least they could do, for once, is win 5 in a row. But no, win 2, and get smoked by an average Philly team.
Nice win vs buffalo, though. They owed them that one.
They also owe Carolina one, too.
Gotta beat teams like that with a 2-0 lead.
Okposo looks like hot garbage.
who the hell is 6-3-1 on the road and 2-7 at home?
In the Isles 11 losses so far, in 7 of them, they have lead or were tied in the third period. Can't close out games.
Maybe tonight will be different.
1-1 after one.
After losing to Boston tonight somebody has to go...there will be no playoffs again...just seems like Capuano has this team playing too tight and conservative....however, like I said, Snow is the one who needs to take the hit here...
Seasons close to half over, and there's really nothing I've seen to make me think they'll finish out of the bottom five even.
Oh well, there's always the Jets.
Never mind. Just shoot me.
they need to keep DP in the minors and try to humiliate him into retiring - then take his money and extend Moulson for a long-ass time.
He seems like a nice enough guy, but it's time to retire. I'd feel pretty bad about taking all that money for a handful of bad games every season. He's already a rich man. Go.
