    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.
    Meh, not me if I was in his shoes. I'd play in the AHL anytime for the next 8 years, and then I'd have enough cash to live quite comfortably and never have to work another day in my life by the time I was 40 years old.

    Are there any other Isles season ticket holders here who have been able to get a refund for the canceled games? They readily admit they owe me money, and have been basically telling me "the check is in the mail" for months.

    I am going to file a small claims court complaint against them this week.

    ^^ Nope, not me.

    I did look for Isles tickets for Sunday afternoon game, and the cheapest seats wete still $50 face value, in the upper row of the upper sections. Good Lord, those seats should be $10. Besides, who wants to pay $50 for a crap view and an 80% chance they're going to lose anyway?

    Nice win yesterday, though, even though they tried to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with a few minutes to go in the third. Sweet SO goal by Tavares.

    If they barely eeked out a SO win vs a Senators team that had played 3 games in 72 hours, and lost in OT the game before to a Leafs team that had played at home the night before coming to Nassau, I don't have much hope they'll beat a good Canadiens team tomorrow night at home.

    Dare to dream.

    I went to the game yesterday - took my boys and they had a blast. I had seats just inside the blue line in the 200s section. I paid $50/ticket. My 5 year old is obsessed with hockey - My 2 year old (first game) spent 80% of the game looking for Sparky. Hey, whatever occupies your time.

    Unless its Isles/Rags, you can show up at the game and get tickets ridiculously cheap.

    I also found a guy who sells 200s seats for $50 - $60 a ticket....sometimes $35 on the weekdays. Great seats for ridiculously cheap. If you're interested, pm me and I'll give you the details.

    And yesterday was a great game. I think they honestly outplayed the Sens for about 60% of the game. And I don't put too much stock in the 3 games in 72 hrs - every team is playing a condensed schedule this year. I thought Tavares looked like he was really beat for most of the game - which made sense after the game when I found out he was sick.

    And what a way to finish the game! That was an unbelievable goal.

    Tough game for the Isles tonight. Montreal is 6-1-2 on the road, and the Isles suck at home. Montreal 7-0-3 in their last 10. Maybe we can hope for a Boston hangover from the Habs.

    Well, on any given Tuesday...

    You need to check FanSnap. You can usually find tix center ice in the upper level for $10 a pop. Best seat in the house.

    Josh Bailey is another one who needs to start making more significant strides.

    Hey! A regulation home win!

    My God, I was sure when they took a 4-3 lead, they were going to blow it.

    Keep it going. Need 3 more straight W's to make p for the 5 game L streak.

    Figures they would get a reg. win vs a team they can't possible hope to catch.

    But excellent win nonetheless. Martin was huge.

    Unfortunately, there's a pattern with this team the past month. Win 2 to get within one game of .500 (sad how getting to .500 is the benchmark of excitement for this team), then lose two. Win two to get back within one game of .500, lose two. Win two, lose two. Guess which two are next.

    Martin's a big tough guy, he could be very valuable around the net. At the game on Sunday, he was seemingly everywhere. I thought he was going to drop the gloves with Neil, which could have been disasterous for him. I would love to see Martin develop into a nice offensive force in addition to a hit machine.

    A poor man's Clarkson, which isn't too shabby.

    Nice win last night.

    Should we go start sh!t in the Rags thread???

    ^^ Any other forum, I'd say yes. This forum happens to be the only one where each teams fans stay out of the others threads, unless something good to say, and we can talk hockey without the bullshlt. Live and let live in the Pro Arena Sports forum, I say.

    Sad but true, we don't have much to brag about anyway.

    They are a good team with a lot of young talent. The problem appears to be mental since they play great on the road against good teams but poorly at home against mediocre teams. They can't handle being a favorite for some reason.
    They also can't hold late leads.

    Not sure about this coach.

    Poulin will probably determine if they grab a playoff spot.

    Meh, maybe the young talent isn't as talented as we thought. If they could hold leads or finish off games, they'd probably have another 4 wins under their belt.

    Not sure what the problem is. I know I'd like to see Cappy go nuts and start yelling at guys to get their heads out of their asses every once in a while, though.

    Could use a goal tender who could make a few key stops a little more often.

    Perhaps the real problem is Garth Snow, and right up to Wang.


    Anyway, I hope they show up tonight. The effort in the first meeting (4-1 loss) was pathetic. Same message, day after day, though, is "We know we have to work hard and grind it out for 60 minutes every night", yet they rarely seem to do it.

    Any given Thursday....

    I'm guessing that the Islanders really try to take it to the Rags physically tonight. According to Cappy, Boulton is suiting up, which hasn't happened in several games - Ullstrom is sitting. I would not be surprised to see this game turn into a real scrappy one with the Isles trying to push them around.

    I fully expect to see Michael Haley in a scrap with his old team.

    Alright, keep up the intensity. Play the full 60 minutes. Don't let up. Finish your checks.
    You know, play basic hockey.


    Should be an exciting third.
