"NYI247, where real fans talk Islanders hockey"
NY • United States • 2011 Years Old • Male
What a 2 days it has been. I didn't blog about last nights game because my goal wasn't to do a blog after each and every game breaking down the periods. I wanna write about what is happening with this team.

I have said a million times we are building a winner. I have been laughed at, made fun of and insulted. I have tried explaining to people the transition that the team will make throughout the season and especially in the second half. There have been only a handful of people who have agreed with me.

I wrote a second half forecast blog TELLING you what to expect this team to do in the second half. Still, I was emailed hate letters by these people who just love to hate the Islanders.

Every aspect of this team has been broken down by commentators, journalists, bloggers, and fans. When they make a transaction the chatter starts. Someone needs to step in. The owner is an idiot. The coach stinks.

When they start playing offense people breakdown their defense. When they pick up the defense people take shots at the offense. They lack toughness. They lack skill.

Moulson is a fluke I have been told. Tavares is over hyped. Grabner is fun to watch however he doesn't have the skill to score goals. AHL all stars, NHL chumps.

To all those people, I hope they are watching. I hope they are watching a TEAM form. A GROUP OF LEADERS emerging for a common cause. A pack of strained reputations with nothing left to lose and EVERYTHING to gain by sticking together because the rest of the world has already shut them out.

Last night we watched a team trail all game to pick up 2 points. Tonight we watch them abuse the team that made them look like fools just one week ago. Every player tonight played with FIRE and FURY. We watched them KICK the SH*T out of the Penguins. Thats old time hockey right there. That is a team UNITED.

Tonight the Islanders are telling the NHL and the rest of the hockey world that they are very much alive and well. Last night they gave us hope. Tonight they give you something to believe in.


This team needs ALL of its fans back. This team DESERVES bodies in those seats. This team has played hard for us, the FANS. This team has EARNED our support.


Thurs Feb. 17 the Islanders play the Boston Bruins. It WILL be a tough game. We should ALL be there!

This blog has almost 1000 hits in just about 2 weeks. This leads me to believe we can form something to get the people there. If everyone shares the message, not even my blog. Just tell people to go to the game, it would help. Write it, tweet it, whatever.

It's a good reason to get out, join some friends and have a good time and support the team that is playing its heart out to you!!!

The game tonight was out of hand. The islanders deserve no respect for that win tonite. So many cheap hits. I know u guys don't have much to cheer for but cmon. Rick d was lucky he is already hurt from k.o Johnson. Your franchise is a joke

You guys cheer Matt Cooke and you bitch about us.Tell that to Mark Savard, jack ass! A joke? A real joke is when a team tanks on purpose(twice) so they can draft a certin player.

Definitely was a joke game, Martins cheap shot on Talbot, Gillies was disgraceful, Haley was a joke, Godard gets a 10 game for leaving don't blame him in the situation but this whole game was a joke and both teams tonight are a laughing stock, 9 goals or not

And don't get me wrong I'm not a Pittsburgh fan I prefer the Isles any day over the Pens I just thing the best revenge they could have gotten was a absolute ass kicking to the pens and hurting their ego, 346 Penalty minutes in one game is just disgusting , although I do wish Cooke was out there to get his ass handed to him haha

Gillies hurt tangradi then continued to throw punches. Martin flat out sucker punched talbot. Talbot was lucky he wasn't injured. To defend the actions your players took and part of your article is praising what they did is absurd.

I too praise what they did. You guys allow an animal like Cooke to run around this league taking cheap shots at anyone and everyone yet you cry like wimps when its time for retribution. If you wanna dish it out then get ready to take it in return. Last week there were questionable hits coming from your side. Revenge is sweet and atleast there is 1 blogger out there willing to call it what it really was. Sweet sweet revenge

Can't believe the Panther waived Grabner. He's got 20 goals now how many Panther can make that claim?

Questionable hits? Continuing to punch a guy while he is down and injured is questionable? Sucker punching talbot with the intent to injure also questionable? Look I agree Cooke deserves to be suspended but mcr2581 pull ur head out of ur ass and wipe the shit from ur eyes because u sir are

This was a joke of a game and I would be embarrassed to say that I am an Isles fan. The big fathead coach did his job in showing his true colors and intent to exact some revenge. He, Martin, Gillies and Bayley should be fined and suspended. If you think that this is hockey then you have been cheering for the Islanders way too long. Joke of a team! Joke of a game! Joke of officiating. This is not the reason as to why I play or watch hockey! Do your job and clean up this mess Bettman!

WAAA! Pens fans are such bitches!

"This is not the reason as to why I play or watch hockey." Yeah I guess someone needs to carry the waterbottles. It funny when the Pens "send a Message" you guys are silent. Where was the pens fans and their outcry over Cookes attempt to injure.Tell your shit to Marc Savard you little wanna be bitch!

Three years ago cooke was looked at as a tough, gritty player. Now after the blindside rule change, he's a "dirty" player. Sucker punches and elbows were always dirty in the league if my memory serves me right. Spin it however you want isle fans, your team took it too far. Im not condoneing cookes game at all, but his hits in no way compare to what martin and gillies did in that game.
