It’s crazy to think, but Brock Nelson is under the age of 25 and makes out Top 25 Under 25. He’s a natural goalscorer, hopefully, he can add more to his game. He just makes the cut, but Brock Nelson is 24 years-old. Born in 1991 in Warroad, MN. He’s already been with the New […]

As you all know – John Panarese has been writing with me for a long time. John and I met many years ago when I was introduced to him via my old boss at Avis where I used to work. John is his brother-in-law, and my old boss told me that I HAD to meet him, and I would be blown away by what he knows.
Tonight is game two of the World Cup of Hockey featuring two of the Islanders key players, John Tavares and Jaroslav Halak. Canada looks to go perfect en-route to ruining team Europe’s “Cinderella Run,” though I don’t think it gives this team the credit they deserve.

Seidenberg, 35, scored 12 points (one goal, 11 assists) in 61 games with the Boston Bruins last season. It was the Schwenningen, Germany, native’s thirteenth National Hockey League season and seventh with the Bruins. Seidenberg won a Stanley Cup Championship with Boston in 2011.

It has been approximately 18 months since I have touched this site, Islanders Op-Timism, and almost six months since I've taken a figurative pen to the paper for the New York Islanders faithful. To be honest, I love to write, but it stopped being fun for me when it became less of a hobby, and more of an unpaid position, sucking up the little bit of free time I've had while I worked all hours of the day, weekends and holidays included.

Last night the New York Islanders played split-squad games in Philadelphia and Madison Square Garden. In the process of losing both, they were outscored 2-9, including a 4-0 shutout courtesy of the Flyers.
So after both squads were thoroughly dominated, how worried should fans be about the strength of their favorite team?

With Team Europe making a stunning advancement into the World Cup Finals against everyone’s favorite Cup winner, Canada, there’s been a name floating around in the hockey media for all the right reasons, New York Islanders goaltender Jaroslav Halak. Halak, along with a group of Stanley Cup savvy veterans, have beaten teams like Team USA and recently just defeated Team Sweden to advance to the Cup final. Then there’s former Islanders Miro Satan comment about Halak’s performance:
#europe Miroslav Satan on Jaroslav Halak:"it's the best I've seen him."
This week on Overtime on the Island, Mark Weiner and Nick Valastro discuss Ryan Strome‘s new contract. Will Strome have a bounce back season after just 28 regular season points last year? The guys give you their take.
On Friday the New York Islanders announced that forward Mikhail Grabovski failed his physical, and will now miss training camp. The news didn’t come as a shock to many Islanders fans, and could signal the premature end to his once-blossoming career.
Concussions have always been an unfortunate part of sports, and will likely remain so. However, researchers are only now beginning to understand the causes and effects of them, and the results are horrifying.
Last night, Team Canada and Team Europe took to the ice in the World Cup of Hockey. With four minutes remaining in the second, Europe had less then 10 shots on goal…in the game. Despite that, though, they were only down 3-1 to that point. In the end, Canada won 4-1, limiting Europe to less than 20 shots and going undefeated in group play.

Islanders forward Ryan Strome and management have finally agreed on a new contract for the youngster. According to Newsday, “The former first-round pick has agreed to terms on a two-year contract to stay with the Islanders, the team announced Tuesday.
The New York Islanders announced today that Ryan Strome has agreed to terms on a two-year deal.
Strome, 23, scored 28 points (eight goals, 20 assists) in 71 games last season with the Islanders. The Mississauga, ON, native added four points (one goal, three assists) in eight Stanley Cup Playoff games.
My Take: The plus side to this is that he’s signed. According to Art Staple, it’s a two-year deal worth 5 million. That’s close to where I thought Strome would be, especially when I had him compared to Mika Zibanejad, who got a slightly higher contract from the Rangers. So now let’s enjoy watching the World Cup and let the real training camp begin. Let’s go!!!
