Where Are They Now? Bill Guerin

Today we profile an individual who had a very successful career in the NHL and could very well become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. This is a two time Stanley Cup champion and former Islanders captain Bill Guerin.

A Special Moment for Doug Weight

Where are they Now? Ted Nolan

Today we profile the head coach who took Islanders to the playoffs prior to last season’s team. The last playoff berth was in the 2006-2007 season with Ted Nolan as head coach.

Restoring the Honor of the 'C'

The Captain 'C' is an honor that is sought for all throughout the NHL. We know the value in wearing it but lately for the Islanders it has been nothing but a stitched design to add to the jersey. After Denis Potvin stepped aside there has been a lot to be desired in terms of leadership for the team.

Looking at the Islanders' current captain, the honorable Mark Streit, it is easy to see why he is the captain. He is restoring form to an honor that has lost most of its meaning through the last few captains. Streit struggled last year but as a talented player, choosing to play on Long Island, is enough for the fans to let that slide. He has been a great example for the many young players on the team through his NHL experience and international play.
