In his rookie season, Mat Barzal led the team with 85 points. He also recorded 22 goals and 63 assists. Yes, he led the team in assists as well.
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.
So, in most fantasy leagues at this point, teams are competing in the playoffs. If you’re looking for some last minute point getters, you’re in luck. Christopher Gibson has been a brick wall for the Isles.
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. The question is what to do with Greiss when he comes back from injury. We can’t send Gibson back down, and we absolutely cannot have 3 goalies again.
Everyone knows that John Tavares’ contract is up after this season. The big question is whether or not he’ll sign. People are being so dramatic they thought him getting a new haircut is a sign of him changing.
He’s said before that he wants to stay on Long Island, but I think he wants a Stanley Cup more.
There is no straight answer to that question. Really, only Doug Weight knows. There are rumors that he did it to spark something, which makes the most sense. Another rumor was to see how the Islanders would play without John Tavares at center (just in case he doesn’t resign).
Hopefully that wasn’t the reason, but as of now, the experiment has sparked nothing as the Islanders lost to the Hurricanes 4-3.
After 4 straight losses, the second longest losing-streak of the Islanders season, making the playoffs seem near impossible. 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 can come back from this.
