Another big wait for our next game. 4 days for the last one.

At least we have 4 games next week, team needs to get into a groove and I am hungry for more Islanders action!!!

This is one of the reasons I hate the beginning of the season. Way to slow of a start. How is anyone supposed to get any kind of momentum going when you have 3-5 days off between games?

Yeah, our schedule is horrible this season. These lay offs between games are going to affect a team that needs to start gelling as a unit.

Not really, if they continue to play to 6-2 losses and 1-5-2 results in last eight...

I'm always hungry for games, but lately they've been giving me heartburn.

lol


I think the crap schedule has also contributed to the recent downfall. We won 3 in a row, then were off for 4 days. Then 3 losses. Then 2 OT losses which at least there were points gained. Then off for another 4 days. Seems like the next few weeks are loaded with games and the true test will be in place.

As a result of this awful schedule, we have one win in the past 25 days. That's brutal.

As bad as the Isles are playing I've been less inclined for games. It's pretty much just been a frustrating experience watching them more than anything else.

another long wait is at an end. the benefit of so few games is that the isles have a lot of time to work on the crap they have been offering.

6 game losing streak doesnt sound as bad as 21 game losing streak

I'm hungry.

This team is turning into a puck-tease.

The defense looks good on Monday, but then poops the bed on Wednesday.
Scoring is there Wednesday's game, but the defense is not.
Then on Friday's game, their goalie puts on a clinic and we lose 1-0 because of a dumb pass which resulted in turn over...

There are some games where they fire on all cylinders and we see what they can do.

So, yes, I'm hungry for games.

Islanders excuse # 267: the crap schedule has also contributed to the recent downfall

Islanders only real excuse #1: They are not very talented.
