The Islanders ended their five game road trip on a sour note, as they lost by a score of 6-3 in Phoenix against the Phoenix Coyotes.

The Islanders played a decent first period, as the offensive made contributions and Kevin Poulin made a few terrific saves in front of a struggling defense, keeping the Coyotes t just one goal during the second period.

What’s the Silver Lining to the Isles Rocky Season?

The Isles Western road swing is underway and off to a rocky start, as the pessimistic among us might have foreseen. It’s been the same story – come out swinging, only to fall behind and never quite catch back up. They are, largely, victims of their own devices, and the masters of their own undoing, as I’ve said before . But looking beyond the bleakness of the current woes, there is always a silver lining.

Strome’s time to shine? Maybe

The recent news of Pierre-Marc Bouchard’s release is one of the last attempts the Islanders and Garth Snow has to rattle the team’s cage before getting extremely drastic and making changes to the coaching staff.

As the season approached, there seemed to be a divide on who wanted to see young center Ryan Strome with the big club or down in Bridgeport. I was one of those who believed that Strome should spend the season in the minors to put the finishing touches on his development, mature a bit more and gain some sort of composure.

Islanders Waive Bouchard : Will Call Up Ryan Strome

Today, at around 1:00 this afternoon, Arthur Staple of Newsday reported that the Islanders placed forward Pierre Marc Bouchard on waivers.

The move came as a surprise to many for sure. Bouchard himself hasn’t played as well  as the Islanders hoped he would, but his game has been decent this season. He’s not a goal scorer by nature, but he makes the players around him better. He served as a solid veteran third line center for this inexperienced Islanders team, and for that, we thank Bouchard.
