Okay.... I'm a Pens fan so I'm happy. I called them in 6. So far so good, but you guys have a long run with this team a-comin.
Everybody just pull out a copy of Goon and love the funny side of the game. Bonne Nuit
We wasted an enormous amount of time with DP when someone else could have been developed or brought in. We're paying for it now.
I would have liked to see Montoya developed.

But, enough of this talk of the offseason, they still have a game to win tomorrow.
I don't disagree with the criticism of Nabby, but let's not lose sight of the fact that the Islanders didn't score a goal last night.
For a team that traded for Tim Thomas just so they could get to the salary floor (and not have to pay a player to do it), this team is performing remarkably well.
Imagine how good they could be if Wang actually opened up the wallet.
That said, the fact that they are still in the series, despite giving up an average of 4 goals per game is astonishing, and I have not given up hope that they can find a way to get it done Saturday night.
LET'S GO ISLANDERS!!!!!!
the announced move to Brooklyn and the team making the playoffs, the Islanders will attract more quality players. Regardless of what happens in the next two games, this has been a big, big, season
Wouldn't be surprised if Nielson is out for tomorrow from the way they were talking about him. I wonder if they elevate a guy like Brock Nelson to Center that line? Would be a helluva introduction to the NHL.
Just please don't put Reasoner in.
And I missed the start of the game - was there any particular reason that Joennsu was in over Ullstrom? Didn't make much sense to me.
Tomorrows game at 7pm.
Now in his fourth NHL season, New York Islanders center John Tavares has entered the ranks of the elite players in the League.
Tavares on Friday joined Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin as finalists for the Hart Trophy, awarded annually to the "player adjudged to be the most valuable to his team."
And re lineup, I agree. They came off a thrilling win on Tuesday where unfortunately a top Dman got hurt. Replace that guy and move on.
I like what Hickey did this season but as the team is currently constructed, he shouldn't be in the lineup. Even with AMac out, this team needs to have Carkner playing - even if its for 8 minutes. Its not like Carkner suddenly developed a weakness. He knew what he was getting into in game 2 when he dressed him. JMO, but yesterday was a failed experiment that didn't need to happen. Wouldn't have changed the result but still annoying.
New Islander Logo for the move to BKN? I Like it
Well here's to Nappy having a great game.
Lord knows that's probably not going to be the case, but here's to the great hope, allowing 2 goals or less.
Dare to dream....
7 more hours. Lets go Isles! Play a great game, ya wankers!
Lets force a game seven. Even looks like Nelson might be making his debut tonight.
Let's go pens!
Sid the kid
Let's Go Isles.
