  1. All discussions regarding the Pens vs Isles playoff series goes here.
  2. Reports from theScore are stating that Dannel Malloy, Connecticut's governor, has offered up Hartford's XL Center as an option for "interim use", and also suggested that that the arena could be NHL-worthy for a longer period of time with a few adjustments. To make this possible move even more inviting the the Islanders' AHL affiliate is in Bridgeport, Conn. Frankly, I really like the idea. An Islander move to Hartford could also help the Devils attendance woes.
  3. Hey, so, i'm going to brooklyn from april 1st to 11th and i want to go to my first NHL match. I really don't know much about the league, i'm really casual at this sport, just watched international games at the olympics or played NHL 97 many years ago Could you guys recommend me one of the next matches to attend? Madison square garden. New York Rangers vs. Buffalo Sabrers New York Rangers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders New York Rangers vs. Detroit Red Wings Barclays Center New York Islanders vs. Pittsburgh Penguins New York Islanders vs. Tampa Bay Lightning New York Islanders vs. Buffalo Sabres Btw, sorry about my English :/
  4. It's ironic that the last trade Darcy Regier made in his long tenure in Buffalo could be move that sets the Sabres up for a bright future. On October the 27th the Sabres sent Thomas Vanek to the New York Islanders for Matt Moulson a 2015 2nd round pick and a conditional 2014 1st round pick. When you look at the return Snow received on Vanek at the deadline (conditional 2nd and prospect); Regier outright robbed the Islanders. Everyone knows that Vanek is going to Minnesota on July 1st. I respect Snow's guts on this move, but it wasn't a wise move. What I want to focus on here is that conditional 2014 1st round pick. For those who don't know the condition on that pick is that if the pick is in the top 10 in 2014 the Islanders have the right to defer that pick to a 1st round pick in 2015. With the loss of Tavares for the season and the Vanek trade the Islanders are almost sure to finish in the bottom 5 if not bottom three in the NHL. Now I would be shocked if Garth Snow survives this season with all that has gone on. So from the Islanders standpoint what should they do? The Islanders are moving to the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn in 2015. You would think they would want to bring some buzz into that season with perhaps a top pick. However no guarantee the Islanders are going to be in the bottom again 2015, but still pretty likely. So do the Islanders swallow hard and let the Sabres keep a potential top pick in 2014? Another issue is that 2015 is the McDavid-Eichel draft. Does New York give up a potential golden ticket in that 2015 draft? If I was the Islanders GM I would let the Sabres take the 2014 pick. Keep an eye on the future with McDavid and Eichel. I know this will be hard to explain to fans however it's the smarter move long run. Now from the Sabres side I think it's simple. You'll take that golden ticket in 2015. Sure you could possibly get two of either Reinhart, Ekblad, or Bennett. I would rather take Reinhart this year and then put him with Eichel or McDavid next year and possibly another high pick in 15. Personally as a Sabres fan I'm begging the Islanders to take the pick this year. The Islanders need to make the decision by June 1st. The lottery is held at the end of April so the Islanders will have about a month after the lottery to make a decision. The only way I would understand the Islanders keeping the 14 pick is if they have the 1st overall pick. What do you think the Islanders should do?
  5. Visnovsky signed a 2 yr 9.5M extension. I guess Visnovsky must now love NY. Wasn't he the same guy that refused to play for the Islanders? Maybe playing next season in Brooklyn matters. Thus far Visnovsky has 3 goals, 9 points and has helped the Islanders PP as they are ranked 8th overall in the NHL.
  6. Thomas traded to isles. Seen it on twitter. Was chasing it down all day at work, and Ek confirms it. No word on whats coming back (from what I've heard).
  7. Lubomir Visnovsky is a New York Islander after all. On Wednesday, an arbitrator ruled against Visnovsky, who was dealt from the Ducks to the Islanders in June. In July, Visnovsky filed a grievance through the NHL Players' Association to void the trade, claiming the no-trade clause in his current contract was still valid because he did not invoke it when he was dealt from the Edmonton Oilers to Anaheim in 2010. "This isn't an issue with the (Islanders)," Visnovsky's agent Neil Sheehy told Newsday in July. "It's a matter for the NHLPA/NHL to decide. He has a no-trade clause." Visnovsky has one season remaining on his contract, which will pay him $3 million next season, while his contract carries a cap hit of $5.6 million. In 49 games with the Ducks last season, Visnovsky scored five goals and added 22 assists. Visnovsky's had his best offensive season in 2010-11, his first full year with the Ducks, where he tied his career goal output with 18 and set a career-high with 50 assists and 68 points. He also had a career high plus-18 rating. The Topolcany, Slovakia native was drafted in the fourth round, 118th overall of the 2000 NHL Draft by the Los Angeles Kings. He has scored 116 goals and 329 assists in 752 career NHL games with the Kings, Oilers and Ducks. Source: [Hidden Content]
  8. The MVP Challenge continues with the New York Islanders. -----play and earn tokens for "pickem" 1. Tokens are earned for the MVP Summer Challenge by voting and posting discussion in each team MVP category or playoff challenge. 2. All team MVP's will be chosen from a poll of 5 team candidates. 3. Members earn five tokens per vote and for each and every quality discussion post within every MVP topic to a maximum of 50 tokens per Challenge. 4. It is recommended to participate in discussion prior to voting, as discussions will influence votes. 5. A new Team or MVP matchup poll and discussion will begin M-Th each week until Hockey Forums 2012 MVP is chosen in October. 6. All poll topics posted within one week will close Sat evening the following week. 7. If any re-do polls are needed due to major player trades they will be repeated on Fridays. (hopefully we won't need many of these) Consider the following questions when discussing and voting for each Team MVP and Matchup category: 1. Who is this teams most valuable player factoring in point production, leadership qualities, and overall tenacity/grit? 2. Which player is most essential to the teams success next season. 3. If you were the GM of this team and needed to rebuild with one player, whom would you choose? 4. Which player would cause their team to struggle the most if out with a season ending injury? 5. Which player and or prospect projects to be the teams most valuable player next year? Also, since the MVP Challenge is part fantasy: 1. If you were the coach which linemates would play with your MVP to enhance his play? 2. What parts of the players game need most improvement? 3. What type of numbers do you think this player can put up this upcoming season? 4. And any other Islander player related info, stats, videos, etc to enhance discussion.
  9. As a Flyer fan I'm quite familiar with the well known Lindros vs Clark feud that ended with the return of Lindros in the Winter Classic. For years the Flyers organization chose to erase highlights of Lindros's career while Flyer fans all over the world never forgot. I'm much less familiar with the Pat Lafontaine vs Wang feud that didn't take place while LaFontaine played for the Islanders. Instead, owner Charles Wang is still bitter over LaFontaine's 40-day run as his unpaid senior advisor. Lafontaine resigned in July of 2006 after Wang fired the team's GM Neil Smith and handed the job to Garth Snow. LaFontaine disagreed with the decision and quit out of loyalty to Smith. He said "I believe you treat people fairly, and stand up for what you believe in." Since then Lafontaine, one of the greatest American hockey players ever, has been erased from the Islanders memories. The 2011-2012 season is the 40th anniversary of the Islanders organization and frankly I'm shocked, not a mention of Pat LaFontaine. Season-ticket holders were given 42 keepsake tickets featuring a notable Islander player, coach, or executive however non featured LaFontaine. LaFontaine, is arguably the Islanders' best and most popular player in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The St. Louis-born center's 1.17 points per game is tops for USA-born hockey players. His game-winning-goal in the "Easter Epic," the Islanders' 3-2, four-overtime victory over the Washington Capitals in the decisive Game 7 of the 1987 Patrick Division semifinals is not included in the Islanders' pregame video. The 40th anniversary video seems intent to pretend he didn't exist. LaFontaine became a member of the Pro Hockey Hall of Fame nine years ago and yet he has been left out of the Islanders Hall of Fame. [Hidden Content] The last time LaFontaine was in the Coliseum was Feb. 5, 2008, during a game between the Islanders and the Anaheim Ducks. Brian Burke Anaheim's general manager, Brian Burke invited LaFontaine to the game to discuss Burke's potential support of LaFontaine's nonprofit organization, Champions in Courage, which funds the construction of interactive playrooms in children's hospitals. The Islanders denied LaFontaine a credential for the game. However, Burke provided a ticket for LaFontaine, and the two continued their meeting in a suite reserved for the Ducks' owners. Lafontaine and former Islander Steve Webb biked 550 miles over 48 hours, from Toronto to New York last September, to raise money for charity. The Islanders issued a news release on their website about the event. The release mentioned Webb, but not LaFontaine. The Islanders confirmed these events happened but didn't comment. I'm appalled by these actions of the Islanders organization no different than disliking how the Flyers treated Lindros. The Islanders could use the public-relations boost accompanying a reconciliation. LaFontaine and his family have remained a fixture on Long Island. He coaches the Long Island Royals, a midget hockey team that won a state championship last month. The Islanders have won only two playoff series in the last 25 years. This will be the fifth time that they finish last in their division. Their home attendance is 29th this season among the NHL's 30 teams. As the 2015 expiration of the Coliseum's lease nears it seems time to honor one of the greatest American hockey players ever. "There's nothing more I would have loved to see," LaFontaine said, "than the Islanders coming back to prominence." Lastly, a video of the top 10 goals scored by Pat Lafontaine.

  10. SABRES (21-24-6) at ISLANDERS (21-22-7) Last 10: Buffalo 3-6-1; New York 6-3-1 Season Series: It's the third of four meetings, with the Islanders having won the first two -- including a 4-2 victory at the Nassau Coliseum three weeks ago. Big Story: Talk about two teams in desperate need of two points: The Sabres are 2-0-1 in their last three games, but left a point on the table Wednesday night when not even Ryan Miller's shutout was good enough in a 1-0 shootout loss to the Rangers. The Islanders try for a perfect week after winning 5-2 in Carolina on Tuesday and 2-1 in overtime at Ottawa on Friday to leap over the Sabres into 12th place in the East. Injury Report: Vanek will not be in tonight's matchup as he is still out (Upper Body) that he suffered in Tuesdays matchup against the Montreal Canadiens Vanek from what I hear is projected to be out till at least next Tuesday and Jochen Hecht (Concussion) is no where near coming back. Islanders are without Marty Reasoner (broken hand) Top Scorers: Here is scoring outlook based on the previous 2 games these teams have played Islanders: Matt Moulson +2 (2G 1A 3PTS), Micheal Grabner +1 (2G 0A 2pts) and P.A. Parenteau +2 (0G 3A 3PTS) lead the charge as the the leading scorers in the 2 previous games versus Buffalo other notables John Tavares +4 (0G 2A 2PTS). Buffalo: Although with no real top scorers against the Islanders because of a dismel 2 games being outscored 6-3, and some injuries to Hecht and Vanek there is still potent scoring potential that can light up this Islanders team. IE Leino, Pominville, Roy, and Stafford. Hecht, Roy and Kaleta all have 1 goal versus the Isles through 2 games. Goalie Outlook: Enroth (GAA 2.52 SV% .928) has started the 2 games for Buffalo against the Isles while Nabokov (GAA: 2.00 SV% .920) and Montoya (GAA:1.00 SV% .968) split the 2 games. My thoughts are that it will be Miller vs Montoya as by statistics Montoya has the better stats than Nabokov and Miller has not played yet against the Isles. Buffalo took 5/6 points in the last 3 games but are still trailing the 8th and final playoff spot by 10PTS because of no help from any of the teams, the team is ranked 27th in scoring and really needs their big names to step up mostly Leino if he can start producing the Sabres can find themselves quickly climbing themselves out of the hole they dug themselves. Pominville is the front runner with his partner in crime in Vanek out with his UBI to continue to keep producing. The Sabres are showing potential in becoming a very dangerous team to play aginast as of their last 3 games are showing they wont be taken lightly anymore playing phenomial hockey. Sabres win tonight they vault over the Isles and Tampabay into 11th place right behind 10th Winnipeg who has 54pts, that is hoping Florida playing Tampa Bay hope that the surgent 3rd place DIVISION LEADING! Panthers can hold off their rivals. I leave you with a great bit of Sabres vs Isles past LETS GO BUFFALO! Stats courtesy of NHL.com
