Islanders Insight's picture

Howie Rose has seen the end of his 21 year career as the New York Islanders TV play-by-play announcer. A tenure that undoubtedly was difficult for almost everyone involved within the organization.

New York Islanders Need Both Greiss And Halak

Islanders Insight's picture

It’s no secret that the goalie situation worked out well for the New York Islanders this past year. If it ain’t broke why fix it? A part of the game that every team deals with is injuries. There is no way to avoid it, so it’s on the GM to have the necessary depth to […]

Blog: What Would You Do If You Were Isles GM?

View From Section 317's picture

I’ve, talked about the graduates, the professionals and the drafted prospects of the New York Islanders all week long and I’ve given my five players who could be taken at number 19 should the Islanders draft at that spot. Now this is my once-a-year treat where I play arm-chair GM and I try to improve the team while still trying to stick to what Garth Snow could do, meaning keeping things on a budget and not spending all the money and “Going all out” in the end of June. I do believe that will be his goal, improving the team while still on a budget, which is why I have never written anything on Steven Stamkos coming to the Islanders. It’s just nice to think about, but there are other teams more desperate for him and the Isles should take advantage. So let’s set the scene: You’re watching the draft or you’re in Buffalo, you tell the Toronto fan next to you to stay quiet for one second because they’re still cheering about tanking this season to get their savior, Auston Matthews.

The New York Islanders are in talks with center Frans Nielsen’s agents regarding a new contract with the team. So long as they don’t overpay this could work out well for the team. The news of the New York Islanders trying to re-sign 32-year-old center Frans Nielsen first came up sometime over the weekend. Newsday’s Arthur Staple indicated […]

Blog: Who Will Still Be There At 19?

View From Section 317's picture

We’ve gone over the prospects in the New York Islanders organization and now it’s time to see who might be joining them starting on Friday at 7pm. In earlier years I would write about 10-15 different prospects leading up to the draft. By Friday morning, I’d predict who the Islanders would take in their respective slots. This year, I’m narrowing it down to five players. Mind you, I’m not necessarily putting players in here for the sake of what the Islanders need, but who should be around number 19 should the Islanders be drafting at all, more on that tomorrow. Now if there is a player who you were hoping to see when the Islanders select, it’s probably because they’re going to go top 15 or they should fall well into the 20’s. The five players to keep an eye on are as follows (no particular order):

New York Islanders Announce 2016-17 Schedule

The Islanders announced their schedule for the 2016-17 season this afternoon. Let’s go over some highlights:

We already found out yesterday that the opener will be October 13th against the NY Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The home opener will be Sunday, October 16th against Anaheim.

The schedule features a lot more weekend home games. 18 to be exact. So that’s a huge change from last year. Four Friday games, five Saturday games and nine Sunday games will be played at Barclays Center.

New York Islanders: Cost of a Cap Dump

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders like almost every other team in the league have at least one contract that they wish didn’t exist. Getting rid of it might sound easy but it’s much more difficult than it seems. In 2014 the New York Islanders signed free agents Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin to massif four-year deals […]
