Also on Islanders Tv, Brendan Witt visits The Howard Stern Show. Interesting.

The BlogFather Steps Up: Isles To Get More Coverage with Chris Botta

BDGallof's picture

One of the biggest issues facing Isles fans was the lack of coverage. Despite all those local papers, only Newsday has a full-time beat writer on the case. That would be Greg Logan, who has been solid in his work.

Now we have two, with Chris Botta coming Point Blank, literally. Islanders Point Blank.

His blog Debuts on September 25th. Despite that the New York Islanders will be

The Comeback Isles?

View From Section 317's picture

With new coach Scott Gordon in place and goalie Rick DiPietro coming back, the New York Islanders seem to be ready to go into 2008-09.

A strong start, though, may be the key to sell New York Islanders Tickets. The team will need to get the fan base excited about a playoff run in order to keep the Nassau Coliseum filled for the entire season.

Newsday: Greg Logan has a blog update with head coach Scott Gordon's comments where there is a lot of speculation about early line combinations and who could play center in Mike Sillinger's possible absence during camp.

Mr Logan felt there will be attention on Josh Bailey as prospect camp opens with his opinion he could benefit from another year in junior hockey.

Just some quick hits today, as we begin to ramp up for training camps.

Sugar Cleared for Moncton

First off, congrats to Chris Botta for being on top on the Brandon Sugden story. Bill Daly of the NHL spoke to Brandon Sugden and then spoke to the four teams that were impeding his chance to come to the Isles training camp. Per Botta's last blog, Sugden himself left him a message saying he w

Defense Preview Pt I: Witt & Martinek

NYI Fan Central's picture

Monday begins the preview of the Islander defenders with Brendan Witt and Radek Martinek.

1. Brendan Witt:
Brendan Witt's statistical season in 2007-08 would suggest not much happened given the numbers but we all know Witt is a player who is not about his stats but how he contains the opposition from getting their stats with physical play, strong positioning and shot blocking with the occasional big hit that can change a game.

Building on the enforcer theme today, cruising along the internet earlier I came across an AskMen.com Top Ten Amazing NHL fights list.

Browsing through their ten selections, I found a fight between Bobby Nystrom and Mel Bridgman ranked at #8. As you can see from the video below, it was a pretty wild fight indeed.

The Ike Spike - Shame on EXXON - 9-14-08

7th Woman's picture

I interrupt this hockey blog to get angry at something I was witness to today. Gas gouging. Or so it seems. But I'd like to understand why the EXXON stations (you know the guys who made billions of dollars in profits) seem to have made the bold move of increasing their gas prices to about $4.09 a gallon for regular while other gas stations have only increased their prices by about .05 a gallon to about $3.79.

Big Angry Man tells me to stay the hell away from talking about baseball. I certainly don't know enough about it. But I can't help it as I sit here trying desperately to write my entry on my interview with TV 55's CJ Papa, but watching the Yankee game.

Brandon Sudgen Update/Notables

NYI Fan Central's picture

Toronto Sun: Joe Warmington reports NHL deputy comissioner Bill Daly called Brandon Sudgen and said he would contact the teams that voted against his return and see what could be done but made no promises as the groundswell of support increases.

The Star:Mark Zwolinski's article today apparently only had the story before Bill Daly's call that he was going to drive to New York but intends to play in the AHL if the rule stands.

I’ve been pretty busy as of late, I have been wanting to post some updates on the latest developments from the past week.

Thankfully, some of my esteemed fellow Blog Boxers are on the job keeping everyone out there in Islanders Nation informed.

Forward Preview Pt V

NYI Fan Central's picture

After a week off from forward previews today we have a few words about the rest of the Islander forwards.

1. Jeff Tambellini:
Nothing really new to write about Jeff Tambellini, an impact player in the AHL, a player who looks like he does not belong when given chances (albeit limited minutes most of the time) in the NHL. You see Comeau, Okposo and Bergenheim visible in games, creating chances and driving the net and wonder why this former first round pick is virtually invisible when he gets his opportunities, then goes back to the AHL and dominates?
