Postgame 4/13/14: Islanders defeat Sabres 4-3 in Shootout to Conclude Regular Season

The Islanders concluded their 2013-2014 season on Sunday afternoon against the Buffalo Sabres and for the second consecutive game it was a victory in the shootout.

So Who's in Net? The Isles' Goalie Dilemma

Below is a collection of names that will either be free agents or that could be in play via the trade market. One item to note is that with many of these names, there is a reason why they are available. That is not to say they are bad or wouldn’t represent an upgrade over the current three-headed monster the Islanders have used this year (for a laugh, check out the league’s goalie leaders and scroll to the bottom of the list).

Bailey Finally Looking Comfortable In Win Over Sens

The Islanders season has been over for awhile now, their best players have been on the shelf for weeks, and they are basically rolling out the Bridgeport Sound Tigers lineup acting as an NHL lineup day in and day out, but somehow these kids have collected points in 10 of their last 13 games over the past month.

When Will Wang Sell The Isles?

It was recently tweeted by Bob McKenzie of TSN that the owner of the New York Islanders, Charles Wang, is in talks to sell his majority stake hold of the team.

Time for Change in Leadership

The Islanders disappointing season continues and after a difficult week with the trade deadline it’s now time to see where the future holds for the team.

Analyzing The Thomas Vanek Trade

As announced yesterday, Thomas Vanek was dealt to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for prospect forward Sebastian Collberg. A conditional second round pick will be sent to the New York Islanders in addition to Collberg if the Habs make the playoffs, with a conditional fifth round pick then being sent to the Canadiens.

Isles, Grabner Fly Past Jets in OT

On a day highlighted by trade talk, the Islanders escaped on the ice and prevailed in overtime after blowing another 3rd period lead. The Vanek trade is still the number 1 story in Islanders nation, but this was a great way to have some fun while Garth and company look to get a deal done.
