Drop the lines to
Moulson - Tavares - Parenteau
Bailey - Nielsen - Okposo
Grabner - Ullstrom - Nino
Martin - Reasoner - Pandy
I agree with this. Can't teach the new guys bad habits when they seem to be doing fine on their own. Learn to win and expect to win. We need that mentality more then any single skill can bring us.

Risky. Go with the Nystrom jersey instead.

When I used to go to a lot of Flyers games several years back, I used to wear an Islanders jacket, a jersey, and a hat. I never had anyone mess with me or even say anything. I am 6-3 240 lbs., though...not sure if that had anything to do with it...and my Flyers friends are all the same size. Also, as others have stated, I was not there trying to start anything. Now, going to an Eagles game...that is a different story. There is NO WAY I would wear any opposing team's gear. There are drunk fans that literally look to fight and my Philly friends are some of them. I have literally seen Eagles fans fight each other...and they don't need much of an excuse to start s*** with anyone. After an Eagles-Bucs playoff game a few years back on New Year's Eve, about 20 Eagles fans surrounded a guy wearing an Alstott jersey and were threatening him. He was bigger than any one of the 20 guys, but 20-1...not good odds. Thankfully, he kept walking. I, too, kept walking because I did not want to get drawn into any melee.

Now that we're out of it and playing spoiler, we'll win a bunch of games.

Going to watch just the first half of this one, I'm sure I'll turn it off by the first.

Really shouldn't be laughing, but that's all you can do at this point. The handling of Nino by this organization has been a complete joke.

Is there a bonus paid to Nino if he appears in a certain amount of games over gets over a certain amount of points? Because that's the only reason I can see for scratching him yet again.

Charles wants someone to talk too during the game.
CW: So Nino, how many holes are in Swiss Cheese?
NN: Someone call the nurse.

If the Isles had planned to scratch Nino for any other games as of this past Monday onward (the deadline to send him back to Portland), they should have just send him down.... what a freakin joke!! They rush these kids and then don't develop them in the right atmosphere.... insanely inept.. really mind boggling..

If the bonus is for 3 goals or 4 total points, I think the Isles are pretty safe.

I would say no greater than wearing your Isles jersey in any other opposing arena.

Just don't go to Geno's after the game and start mouthing off in the "neighborhood" and you'll be fine.

we need to win this game if we even want a glimpse of a playoff hope...

And another reason to win as many games a possible is to convince PAP and Nabokov to stay with us, seeing that we have good potential for next season

And i think Clement only does games on the weekend

It's not that I dislike Jackson that much, but Comcast Indianapolis doesn't give me the option of watching the Islanders broadcast. Too cheap to add the other channel.

the way I see it: It's not over till it's over, crazier things have happened before, so although I wouldn't bet on it, I will still continue to hope as long there is a possibility we make it....I think people are getting pessimistic for no good reason, there is 19 games left and a whole lot can happen in 19 games...

I seriously don't get it. They could have/should have sent him down on Monday. They didn't, but now they scratch him?

I dunno, I gotta think that Capuano never wanted him on the team this year and this is his way of protesting. Keeping him buried on the 4th line all year & now scratching him.

This organization is so strange.
