wow, you can see how much charles has ****ed over the fans with this product. Barely 6 pages for a game? There were far more last year when the team was kicking the crap out of every other team.

That has 1-4 or 0-5 written all over it. Pittsburgh is killing everyone right now and we play them back to back. 2nd overall is VERY possible.
that would be perfect!

Oh Junior, you disappointment me. Come on, man, you've been around the block. I know that deep down you are fully aware of the cruel joke that is the Islanders.This stretch has 3-2 at best, and 5-0 at worst written all over it.

Which, of course, means that we're not in a good draft position, not in the playoffs, Charles and Garth go to the "late season surge", and all is status quo.

Doesn't surprise me at all.



I "missed" last nights game. Was at a friends house locally and the game was on in the background. When I saw Wallace score, I was like figures. I was asked why I felt that way. Basically told them, he didn't do crap when he played for us, but was put on waivers and picked up by Tampa and he ends up scoring the game winner. Person at this friends house says, "thats a kick to the balls." I responded, "life of an Islander fan".

Wouldn't go that far at all. Was a 4th line energy guy who busted it, threw his body around, and got his nose dirty. The guy was one of the few signs of life on a team full of slugs.

I agree. He is much more useful than guys like reasoner and pandolfo. I liked him on the 4th line.

He was fine as a 4th liner for an uncompetitive Islanders team.


For any other NHL team with pride and skill, he was a slug.

Just saw the game on Divo.

Had to laugh. These two points were absolutely GIVEN away. Tampa didn't even wanna win that thing. They played so horrendously in so many portions of the game... Just ridiculous that they got two points there.

A few things that popped out.
- Nielsen has a career high in goals. Can he score more than Parenteau?
- Hamonic had a rough game. He made some poor decisions, both with respect to what he was doing with the puck and his positioning.
- What in all of God's green nature was Streit doing on Stamkos' first goal? Seriously, that was one of the most disgusting things I've seen all season.
- Butchie was extraordinarily brutal in this game. So many falsities, it hurt my ears.
- Bailey is definitely looking like a future winger to me.
- Boy, Grabner had 5 minutes of time with the puck in one scene and then whiffed when he finally decided to take a shot. Brutal! Wow, that's just sooo ECHL.
- The fourth line was actually pretty good.
- Montoya was sooooo 'meh', it hurt. Expecially that goal by Pyatt to tie it up at three. How does Montoya himself not intercept that pass??? At the end of the day, he easily could have won this thing on his own just by being 'solid'. He wasn't. I think the writing is on the wall in his case.
- It was CLEAR that Wallace was gonna score this game. It ended up being the winner.
- Funny seeing Trevor Smith in the line-up. Just amazing how many ex-Isles they had out there. Throw in the Stamkos-Tavares-Martin connection as well as the Purcell-Moulson connection and you can see why this game was more like a sloppy friendly between two non-playoff teams than anything else.
- Gotta say, I am soooooooooooooo glad we have Tavares and not Hedman. Holy cow, does that guy look like little more than an average Dman. Granted, he's got plenty of time to improve, bad he made some brutal decisions.

OK, back to your regularly scheduled programming...
