Through websites like The Hockey Reference problems are revealed that you wouldn't recognize from the TV. Some things we've uncovered are strange too, such as the fact that our goalies play best when the fourth line is out. Some things are surprising, like Mat Barzal leads the team in takeaways AND giveaways. Defensive flaws are shown … Continue reading Analyzing the Necessity of Ho-Sang through Advanced Statistics
The Isles are in a tough situation right now: their captain John Tavares will be a free agent soon if he doesn’t sign a contract. What does this mean for the islanders? Well, first of all, a huge loss for the team and the fans. Who knows what will happen without his leadership? We all … Continue reading Who will be Captain if JT leaves?
First of all, the Islanders need to win every single game remaining in the season. Unfortunately, that is the only thing that is in our control. On top of the Islanders winning every game, the Devils also have to lose every game! Is it possible? Yes. Will it happen? No. Here are the remaining games … Continue reading If the Islanders want to make the playoffs, this is what needs to happen.
What a game! That was the first 60-minute game we've seen in a while. Chris Gibson played excellent once again. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Gibson has a starting role next season.

Hopefully that wasn't the reason, but … Continue reading Why was JT playing left wing?

Last night's game was a must win-situation and now I just don't see how the Isles can pull it off. Sure, we've seen some crazy comebacks come out of these guys, but I don't know if they … Continue reading We Need Changes
After a mediocre Trade Deadline (Islanders acquired Brandon Davidson and Chris Wagner), the Islanders are ready to make a final playoffs push. Tonight the Islanders face the Canadiens in a home-to-home series. Tonight's game is in Montreal and on Friday the game is in Brooklyn. Both games are a necessary win. Suggested: Playoffs Push… Again
We sat in a very similar position last year, when the Islanders missed the playoffs by a dreadful one point. The Islanders are currently on a losing streak, which is exactly what we can't have right now. The Flyers had a nice winning streak and boom! They're sitting in first place of the Metropolitan Division. John … Continue reading Playoffs Push… Again
