Despite Turnaround Season, Snow Misses Nomination For GM Of The Year

The New York Islanders finished last place in their division six out of the last eight seasons. However, the Isles finished this season with 101 points, third place in the Metropolitan Division, a Hart trophy finalist named John Tavares, and a physically brutal first round playoff exit that lasted seven games against the Washington Capitals.

Despite this drastic change, GM Garth Snow is not a finalist for this year’s General Manager of the Year award.

Timonen: An All-Star Honor Well Deserved

Kimmo Timonen has been around the league for a long time.

In the midst of his 13th season in the NHL, he usually looks forward to the weeklong break that comes every season with the All-Star game.

Any chance for the aging veteran to relax is warmly welcomed.

Unfortunately for Timonen, he won’t be able to enjoy that week off this year.

Five-Guy; Couturier Continues to Surge

Youth is wasted on the young.

The phrase is now clichéd at this point, but it originated from Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw.

The saying is a commentary on how young people have all the opportunities in the world, yet lack the maturity and wisdom to properly take advantage of them.

For Philadelphia Flyers rookie forward Sean Couturier, the saying carries little weight.

Flyers Deny Nabokov of 300th Win; Defeat Isles 3-2

Ok, I'm convinced. It's a curse. The Islanders simply cannot beat the Philadelphia Flyers! If losing 23 of the last 24 games against the Flyers is not saying some sort of voodoo is going on, I don't know what will. Well...not exactly voodoo, but you catch my drift...right?

The Islanders started Evgeni Nabokov against the Flyers tonight. Nabokov was looking for career win number 300 but Nabokov hasn't had a rest in a while, so I definitely thought that Poulin would get the start.
