  UPDATE: Per ESPN’s Craig Custance, the Team USA roster was finalized last night. Anyone want to wager a guess about which player earned himself some extra consideration after last night’s performance in which he recorded three points—including the game-winning goal—and was generally the game’s dominant force?   The 2014 Winter Olympics are fast approaching.

Isles Miss Tavares During Absence

Islanders Insight's picture

It doesn’t happen very often, but when Isles captain John Tavares doesn’t play, his team struggles. Tavares saw his ironman streak end this weekend, and his absence had predictable consequences for the team. Despite stretches of strong – occasionally dominant – play, the Isles succumbed to the New Jersey Devils and fell by a score […]

Kyle Okposo Has Made His Claim for USA Roster Spot

Islanders Insight's picture

Kyle Okposo is a difference maker. Kyle Okposo is a work horse. Kyle Okposo is undeniably talented, strong on his skates, and possesses a heavy shot.  But Kyle Okposo is currently on a struggling, and for all intents and purposes, ‘bad’ team. And for that reason alone, most media outlets have unjustly snubbed him for […]

 *STATS ARE CURRENT THROUGH 12/27/2013 We’re 39 games into the 2013-14 season, and nearly halfway through what fans had hoped would be a season in which the Islanders returned to relevancy, we all have been mightily disappointed.

The New York Islanders sent their fans into the Christmas break Monday night with a solid 3-0 road win over the Detroit Red Wings, which is a true statement but also a bit of a misnomer. Yes, it still counted as two points in the standings, but the Isles didn’t exactly beat the 1997-98 Wings […]
