Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders enter the season with low expectations after losing a franchise player but there is more to be optimistic about than you may think.

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders were just left with a massive hole where their captain should be. While many players could fill the role, forward Josh Bailey is the best fit for the job. Okay, I’ll say it: John Tavares was not a good captain for the New York Islanders. Please don’t count me in with […]

New York Islanders Daily: Noah Dobson Austria Year

Islanders Insight's picture

New York Islanders first-round pick Noah Dobson had an interesting path to being drafted that includes a stop in Austria for 2015-2016.

New York Islanders Daily: Barry Trotz Praises Josh Ho-Sang

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders new coach, Barry Trotz, had some insightful words on prospect Josh Ho-Sang, hopefully giving him a boost of confidence. It’s been an odd tenure with the New York Islanders for Josh Ho-Sang. Between the alarm clock saga, his initial success in 2016-2017 with the big club, and then his scapegoat role […]

The Metropolitan Division has one team openly rebuilding and another seven arguably trying to make the playoffs and maybe win a Stanley Cup.

New York Islanders Brock Nelson Better Winger Than Center

Islanders Insight's picture

Going into the 2018-19 NHL season Brock Nelson might have to play a different position than he’s used to. The wing. A position he’s perfectly suited for. As the New York Islanders build their roster for 2018-19 it’s growing increasingly clear that Brock Nelson might not have a spot at center. With Mathew Barzal, Jan […]

New York Islanders Daily: Oliver Wahlstrom Won’t Attend Training Camp

Islanders Insight's picture

The New York Islanders 11th pick in this years draft, Oliver Wahlstrom, won’t be attending this year’s training camp. Instead, he’s NCAA bound.
