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.

And the social media crowd went wild.

Islanders fans immediately jumped to conclusions about what the sale of the Islanders could mean for the future of the franchise.

To P.K. or Not to P.K.? The Subban Question

As another Islander season draws closer to an ending, it’s never too early to start thinking about the future (it’s what we do best on Long Island). Free agency will come and go and big-ticket names will be shuffled around in trades. And the one name hanging out there that appears ripe for the taking, Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban, just so happens to make a heck of a lot of sense for the team in Nassau.

Islander Fans' Civil War

There’s a battle raging on with the hockey team from Nassau. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with playoff races or games on the ice or “X’s and O’s.” No. This battle goes beyond the ice, into the decrepit seats, into the parking lot and onto the streets. It’s the battle between all those who bleed orange and blue. The battle of the “glass half full’s” and “glass half empty’s.” Our own civil war. (Photo credit: Hazboy/flickr).

Ryan Strome And Anders Lee Look NHL Ready

Although the New York Islanders have been surrounded with lots of negative attention these days, there is a positive and hopeful story that has been emerging and has almost gone unnoticed (Photo credit: mandelux12/Flickr).

Ryan Strome and Anders Lee have been nothing short of excellent since their recent call-up back to the New York Islanders.

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. However, if Montreal fails to make the playoffs, the trade stands as just a single player swap (Photo credit: Michael Cummo Photography/Flickr).

Isles Get Past Toronto In Overtime

In a battle of the Olympics’ top two goal scorers, the New York Islanders came out on top on the strength of Lubomir Visnovsky’s snap shot from the slot 1:55 into overtime.
Toronto’s Phil Kessel and the Islanders’ Michael Grabner each had five goals in Sochi to pace Men’s hockey in the Olympics, and each of these wingers factored in tonight’s offense.

Sound Tigers Win 6th In A Row; Halmo, Lee & Strome Recalled

The Sound Tigers have won 6 in a row and 11 of 13. In the wake of their recent success Anders Lee, Ryan Strome and Mike Halmo have been recalled by the Islanders. With John Tavares and Frans Nielsen out with injuries, the young forwards will be given a chance to prove themselves at the NHL level.

Garth Should Pay The Fans Back Not IOC

Garth Snow must take responsibility for the teams poor performance this season. JT getting hurt did not ruin the year, the roster that he assembled proved to be a unit that could not win enough to be competitive, so before he proclaims others must pay back season ticket holders, he should look at himself in the mirror.
