This is it Sabres' fans. We have been waiting for this since we watched the Hurricanes raising the Cup last year. I think the team has been waiting for this since THEY watched the Hurricane's raise [i]THEIR[/i] Cup last year. In my second blog, I wanted to just take a brief look at the series. I think every publication has already made the world aware that Buffalo ...
Watching the Sabres vs. Islanders game last night I made an observation about the Islanders that I wanted to share. I don't get to see them play too often, so I'm making this assessment based only on one game (maybe not a fair thing to do). Anyway, the Islanders have a lot of talented players, but too few of them are actually good players. Under the heading of [i]Tale...
Local reports in the Buffalo News seem to suggest that the NY Islanders may not have been prepared for Game 1. See Tim Graham's article in the Buffalo News at [url]http://www.buffalonews.com/111/story/52798.html[/url]. To quote the article, "[i]Signs of slapdash postseason preparations were troubling. Star winger Jason Blake peeked at the Sabres morning skate and asked...

Upon Further Review....

...it appears that the puck was indeed across the goal line before Miller got pushed into the net. From all I'm hearing this morning, it appears the league got this one wrong and the goal should have counted. A camera angle from in front of the net shows the puck across the goal line between Miller's pads. That being said, there's nothing that can be done about that n...
This will be short and sweet. I've decided, upon the contemplation of my HB sabbatical and working on my own Isles site, www.IslandersIndependent.com, that for now...that is exactly where I want to be. I thank Eklund and the many excellent bloggers here for their friendship and support. Everyone was swell, and it was a pleasure being here for almost two years. I am...

Disgrace

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
I sat down Friday night to watch the Sabres pound Toronto. On paper, it looked very simple. Buffalo, vs Toronto. Buffalo should have run away with this one before it began. Surprise, it didn't happen. Buffalo had fairly good pressure all night long. However, Gustavsson was impressive, but Buffalo couldn't put it home. Numerous attempts failed, and the evening culminated...

Playing a little catch up

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Let me begin this post by congratulating our very own Michael Grabner on his stellar performance this evening in Carolina. I don't think anyone is shocked by the outcome and like I have said a million times before, THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!! To catch up a little bit, I know I am a few days behind but the blog went live last night so I wanna address some recent headl...
The Islanders kick off the second half of the season against the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday night, game #50. So what should we expect to see from this team in the remaining 33 games? In my opinion we are going to see the Islanders improve. I think their second half record will be a nice improvement from the first half. I also feel that this second half will be a...
What an ending!!!! I am ALMOST at a loss for words right now. 2 months ago this would have been another loss however this new and improved version of the Islanders continues to shock and awe people. Michael "The Rocket" Grabner scored AGAIN and Josh Bailey notched his first goal in 20+ games. This team continues to amaze me. I can't say I am all that surprised how...

Well another phenomenal weekend in the Islanders world has come and gone. On Saturday we were witness to the destruction of another west coast team, the St. Louis Blues. The game started with a highlight reel goal by John Tavares (1G, 1A-2 Points) breaking his 9 game goal slump. Mark my words, that will be a top 10 finalist when they vote for the best goals of the se...

http://nyi247.blogspot.com/ GOTTA SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT
As the season comes to a close and the Islanders off season quickly approaches, the issue of the new arena will once again become a talking point. I decided to take a little road trip over to Jersey and check out the new arena. In my life I have been fortunate enough to visit several Baseball stadiums across the U.S. . In my travels I made it a point to visit Wrigley F...

Stu set the bar for NHL owners by donating $10,000 to the Japan relief fund. follow him on twitter @StuSiegel . Tell him you heard about his donation and send him some love. I hope my NY Islanders step up. Lets see w...
After the Islanders played the Penguins a couple of months back in what is now labeled the fight night on Long Island, I wrote a blog about the game, the outcome (suspensions), and Mario's feedback afterwards. While I am not a big time journalist or even a well known blogger I still feel that I have a responsibility to my readers to be fair when it is called for. A...

The Konopka files......

Check out my blog http://nyi247.blogspot.com/ Follow me on Twitter @nyi247 I have been discussing Zenon Konopka's role on the Islanders for a pretty long time now and as the season wraps up there are more and more people discussing his future on Long Island. There is no denying what he has brought to this team over the past season and how big of an impact he has h...
check out my blog http://nyi247.blogspot.com/ Now that the Islanders are officially out of the playoff race it is time to start looking towards next season and see what improvements need to be made to become a contender next year. First let me say, I think this season was a huge success. Sounds crazy, I'll explain. As last season concluded, myself and many other fans...

Good Win, but Soft Defense

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Buffalo surprised their fans last night with a dramatic comeback on the Isle to walk away with 2 points. Over the last 4 games, Buffalo has 7 of a possible 8 points. Things are looking up, but a real test comes up on Wednesday against the Bruins. Buffalo was in an early hole, due to sloppy defensive play, which, continued all night long. As Garth said, “Miller made 3...

Both teams didn’t make the playoffs the previous season but have rebou...
