Oh, and BTW - who is the only active Islander player on the roster with a positive +/-, yep, you guessed it, Thomas Hickey (+4). Finley is (-5). Just sayin.

Terrifying stat after reading Hornick's skinny

Add to that the Isles are 0-4-0 on the back-end of back-to-backs, including a blowout loss in Pittsburgh earlier this month. It's the first time that they have gone pointless in four straight back ends to start a season since they lost their first seven back ends in 1995-96.

wonderful. Hickey's been one of the best defensemen on the team this season (that in itself is a gigantic statement of affairs) and we're moving him out so Crosby can salivate/drool as he skates circles around Finley.

And of course, why change the forward lines when they are working so well?!

Seeing the status quo is sickening and embarrassing. Even more than the losing.

I'm amazed at the number of people that didn't get your reference. Must be a generational thing.

The Islanders will probably win tonight, thrust themselves back in the playoff picture. Get us all excited, only to collapse again.

Sound familiar?

Let's just win the games against the Rangers and Penguins. Keep the Rangers out of the playoffs and get a good low draft pick. No use torturing ourselves.

That puck has eyes. And it will be bouncing.

what are the odds that the pens score 3 or more goals in the 3rd tonight?

I wouldn't go as fair as to say Hickey's been one of the best defenseman on the team. He's been a capable replacement. Finely is not an upgrade but in a lineup that is void of hittting it might be refreshing change. I'm sure Crosby is not going to be drooling any less at the thought of skating around Hickey.

Wouldn't it be cool if we had a 2nd line C like Malkin/Crosby. Because they're a dime a dozen.

The Puck has never been the same since his best bud Gretzky retired. I feel bad for him actually. Cappy tries to hard to win him over. But he is just not that into him and ever since that fight on the bench when the Puck gave him a black eye he blames him for everything. They just need to work it out.

I agree. But for me it's not that they are losing, it's how they're losing and that they've been losing for so long without any real effort to get better.

Wow. I guess reading stories to my kids and getting them to bed, and then watching the game on delay sounds like a pretty good plan. Cheaper too. Don't have to worry about flaccid french fries.

Maybe I'll go crazy and leave the scores display on on Gamecenter. That way if we're 4-1 down in the 2nd, I'll just skip it and watch 'Life of Pi' with the wifey. Someone oughta be happy. (Note: I draw the line at Les Miserables.)

Cheers,

Dan-o

Same lines, back to back games, Pittsburgh. All the ingredients for a blowout loss.

"It was da bounces and da effaht and da battle level and da play hahhhhd."
