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.
Chances are, when your phone buzzed saying that the Islander acquired Chris Wagner and Brandon Davidson, you went straight to Google to figure out who these guys were. Based off of what we know now (before any games), I believe the Islanders won both of their trades.
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.
