Isles Talk 2014-15 Season Preview: Boston Bruins

The team to beat this year.

The team to beat this year.

Heading into this 2014-15 season, if there is a team to beat this year, it’s the Boston Bruins. Last year, they lost Game 7 at home to the Montreal Canadiens and with Montreal losing a few players to free agency, the Bruins look for redemption. The biggest change for the Bruins was losing Jarome Iginla to free agency to the Colorado Avalanche, so I will be curious as to who will replace his 30 goals.

2013-14 record: 54-19-9-7, 117 points, 1st in Atlantic Division, 1st in Eastern Conference

September is a great time of year. For the pure baseball fan – the playoffs are rapidly approaching, but for us New Yorkers, it will not be such a great experience this year. Week 2 in the NFL is this weekend, and Football fans are getting in a frenzy.  The Jets and the Giants are looking to make their presence in the upper echelon of the league, after the league suffered a major blow with Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson dominating the headlines.

Isles Talk 2014-15 Season Preview: Carolina Hurricanes

View From Section 317's picture

CarolinaIn this section, Isles Talk will quickly go over the Carolina Hurricanes. It’s not that I don’t think they’ll make the playoffs, It’s just that I haven’t seen this team healthy enough to make a legitimate charge to the playoffs. However, to their credit, they always give the Islanders a hard time every year and if the Isles are to make a run themselves, they must find a way to beat the Canes.

Last season: 36-35-11 83 points, 7th in the Division

John Tavares Gives Islanders Stamp Of Approval

Islanders Optimism's picture

New York Islanders fans aren't the only ones happy with general manager Garth Snow's offseason.  In a column written by Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post, Islanders captain and franchise cornerstone John Tavares expressed optimism and enthusiasm on the topic of Snow's summer gets.

According to the New York Post's article, Tavares' eyes "lit up" when the words "roster changes" were mentioned, and he got straight to the point: this season's goaltending situation is a lot more comforting.

Islanders: Getting Defensive

Islanders Optimism's picture
(Al Bello)

Did the New York Islanders 2013-14 season fall apart at the hands of their goaltending or their defense? With the Islanders appearing to have found a solution in between the pipes, the question is a relevant one; perhaps, the question that can determine the Islanders success in 2014-15.
