Pretty decent game, I'd say we just about deserved to win.

I really want to see Mez jump into the top-4, I thought he was outstanding.

it was nice to see a response. great timeout by lavi, once again. i was impressed with zherdev's play thru 2 but he was abysmal in the third. thankfully nodl comes through again.

Tied with the Pens and the Caps, but JJ said that with the new tiebreaker rules, the Flyers are in first place.

How does Isles have any fans? It must be very hard to keep them coming.

I heard Tim P. on WIP earlier. He referenced this article by Larry Brooks:

http://www.nypost.com/f/print/sports...Kv9AagGUqYelvI

Quote:
With the Board of Governors convening tomorrow in West Palm Beach, Fla., it is time for Gary Bettman to declare the Islanders are in a State of Emergency and the NHL will simply not allow the current ownership to maintain the franchise as currently neglected.

Charles Wang is not getting his Lighthouse. That does not give him the right to act as the equivalent of a slumlord for the remaining four years of his team's lease at Nassau Coliseum, an arena that was hockey's big stage three decades ago but now stands as a living tomb haunted by memories.

The product on the ice is shockingly inferior, through little fault of the players on a roster that has been decimated by a pair of injuries to a good defenseman in Mark Streit and a good forward in Kyle Okposo. The minor-league lineup the club put on the ice in this recent home-and-home sweep by the Rangers accounted for approximately $30 million in payroll, nearly $12 million under the floor, and that total includes $4.3 million in bonuses that may never be achieved.

There is Broadway, there is off Broadway, there is off-off Broadway and then there is Long Island, where the owner, once perceived as a savior (so originally was Spano, so originally were the Gang of Four) has all but disappeared from public view.

It is impossible to determine what the endgame here is for Wang. It can't be to simply run out the clock over the next four years while further gutting the franchise's infrastructure. If that truly is the objective, if the owner simply intends to devalue the franchise to the extent no one else would even consider buying it to keep in this area, then it is time for the commissioner to step in, exert his authority and save the Islanders from the crypt-keeper.

Statistically, they're back to being the best team in the NHL, based on tie breakers. However, the Red Wings are a single point behind and they have 4 games in hand :X

Also, I don't think we can really call this team the best in the NHL based on their performance tonight. Need to get to loose pucks more and need to severely improve the PP. Finally got a goal on it, but took a while and it was with like 3 seconds remaining on it by a player who usually doesn't see PP time.

I'm starting to think that we have too many centers on the PP and not enough wingers. Too many cooks spoiling the broth, if you will.

Yeah, this is far from the best team in the league right now. Our PP is really horrible and our goaltending is still weak if you think about it. Not that it matters, but our extra d-men suck badly too.

Our PP approach has been telegraphed by teams.

We put 2 skilled forwards (like Giroux and Briere) out with Hartnell screening and just feed Pronger one timers.

The goalie and defense doesn't have to respect Carle or Timonen's shot like he does Pronger, so they can cheat the one time pass.

We need to give Nodl, JVR and Zherdev more powerplay time and pair Pronger with Meszaros so teams have to respect the shot from both points.
