Predicting the NHL Realignment

True North Sports and Entertainment just announced their purchase of the Atlanta Thrashers, whom they will be moving to Winnipeg with a name this is still to be determined. (For remainder of this post I will refer to them as […]

Player Review: Josh Bailey

Josh Bailey may have joined the New York Islanders a little earlier that almost anyone felt comfortable with, but he had a few hot streaks and flashes of what could potentially come in the next few years. In many ways […]

Player Review: Matt Martin

Matt Martin was very impressive in his first full season with the New York Islanders, and at only 22-years-old he is one of the better defensive forwards on the team. Although Martin did not have the success of John Tavares […]

Player Review: Radek Martinek

Radek Martinek is one of the oldest players on the New York Islanders roster, and brings a lot of experience to the Islanders defensive group. At 34-years-old, Martinek stayed healthy for 64 games, the most games he has played in […]

Player Review: Jack Hillen

Jack Hillen is yet another solid young defenseman for the New York Islanders (a bunch of these in a row it seems) who should contribute again next season. Hillen seems like a good match to play with Travis Hamonic on […]

Islanders Extend Kyle Okposo for 5 Years

The New York Islanders announced Wednesday night that Kyle Okposo has signed a five-year extension with the team. Okposo missed much of this past season with injuries, but at 23 years old he is one of the most talented scorers […]

Player Review: Travis Hamonic

Travis Hamonic is a young future star in the NHL, and like Andrew MacDonald should be a bright spot with the New York Islanders for the next few seasons. Hamonic is only 20-years-old and was the Islanders second round pick […]

Player Review: Andrew MacDonald

Andrew MacDonald was in my opinion the best defensemen for the New York Islanders this season, and should be a leader on the team for the next 10 years. At only 24-years-old MacDonald has a bright future, and in his […]

Player Review: Bruno Gervais

Bruno Gervais has been a New York Islanders staple on the blue line for the past few seasons, but after this past year he may be on his way out. Gervais struggled on defense, going minus 14, and was no […]

Player Review: Milan Jurcina

Milan Jurcina was a great addition to the New York Islanders blue-line, and should be a staple there for the next few seasons. Jurcina was only able to play in 46 games this season, missing various stretches of the season […]

Player Review: Rob Schremp

Rob Schremp was one of the most liked players on the New York Islanders, despite being picked up off waivers by the Thrashers and finishing the season in Atlanta. Schremp’s stats were actually a lot better than I expected, with […]

Player Review: Jesse Joensuu

Jesse Joensuu was yet another player on the New York Islanders who was not very noticeable on the ice during the 40 games he was dressed for. Joensuu did record six goals and three assists, but I have a feeling […]
