Scott Mayfield’s Role with the Islanders
The Islanders have re-signed restricted-free agent defenseman Scott Mayfield to a two-year contract with a $625K AAV. The 23-year-old has played 11 regular-season games over the last two seasons, scoring one goal. What stands out is that the deal is one way, meaning Mayfield is no longer waiver exempt. If the Islanders try to send him back to the […]
Breaking Up The Band?
The New York Islanders will have a new look heading into the 2016-17 season. That could include the best fourth line in hockey. Newsday reports that the Islanders have not had any conversations with the agent for Matt Martin since the season ended. It was pretty much assumed that Martin would be the easiest of […]
Revisiting the Islanders Draft of 2009
The Islanders finished the 2008-09 season with the league’s worst record. The prize for their futility, selecting first overall in the 2009 NHL Draft.

What’s Left From The Vanek Trade For The Islanders?
The Islanders placed forward Sebastian Collberg on unconditional waivers Friday. Collberg was the cornerstone of the trade that sent Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens at the 2014 trade deadline.

The Ramifications Of Travis Hamonic’s Decision
Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic has rescinded his trade request he made prior to the start of the season and will remain with the team. This certainly softens the blow of New York getting eliminated in five games by the Tampa Bay Lightning. It also changes the way general manager Garth Snow goes about his perhaps […]

Why The New York Islanders Advanced
The New York Islanders have advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since 1993.

The Islanders Need To Overcome Their Game 5 Struggles
The New York Islanders Wednesday night, failed to do something they have not done in 14 years, win consecutive playoff games. Seems crazy to think that a franchise who won a record 19 consecutive playoffs series, a feat which probably will never be broken, simply cannot put two wins together. It could cost them […]
The Islanders’ New Home Is Now Playoff Tested
It will never be the Nassau Coliseum, but the Barclays Center stepped up big time on Sunday night. The New York Islanders opened their new home for the playoffs with a thrilling come-from-behind 4-3 win in overtime. The Brooklyn arena was not built for hockey. This is not breaking news. There are about 1,500 obstructed […]
Who Do The Islanders Want To Face In The First Round?

The Travis Hamonic Fallout
Could this be the last image of Travis Hamonic in an Islanders uniform? Head coach Jack Capuano announced that the defenseman will miss the rest of the regular season with a lower-body injury.

Have Injuries Changed The Perception of The Islanders Season?
The New York Islanders are on target to clinch their second-consecutive playoff berth for the first time since the 2003 and 2004 seasons.

Islanders Young Goaltending Core Grows With Eamon McAdam
The Islanders signed Penn State goaltender Eamon McAdam to a three-year entry level contract on Wednesday. McAdam was selected in the third round (70th overall) of the 2013 NHL draft.

Hey Garth, Tell Jack To Hit The Road!
The Islanders’ 2015-16 season has reached critical mass. They are 1-4-2 in their last seven games and have fallen out of the top three in the Metropolitan Division, possibly preventing a Rangers-Islanders first-round matchup, the first since 1994. They may not even make the playoffs. Following Monday’s loss, they are only three points ahead of the […]
Which Players Could The Islanders Lose In An Expansion Draft?
The NHL general managers concluded their meetings in Boca Raton, Florida on Wednesday. The GMs were delivered a framework of rules if the league decides to add at least one team. Las Vegas and Quebec City have filed formal applications to be considered for expansion franchises. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said that the league will do their […]
Islanders Fourth Line: The Heart Of The Team
The Islanders forward lines carousel that has been ongoing for that last two seasons has not affected one line in particular, the fourth line.

Islanders Defensemen Healthy And Ready To Go

The Ryan Smyth Trade Revisited
Garth Snow went from backup goaltender one day to Islanders general manager the next as Charles Wang fired Neil Smith just six weeks after hiring him back in the summer of 2006. Wang’s firing of Smith, who was the architect of the 1994 Rangers Stanley Cup, resulted in former Isles great Pat LaFontaine, hired as a […]
