    New York Islanders: Predicting the Qualifying Offers By: Brandon Schnapp ShareTweetFlipRedditNew York Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello has recently stated that 1 or 2 players won’t receive a qualifying offer. The Islanders currently have ten restricted free agents. And for the sake of simplicity, I’ll say Mat Barzal, Devon Toews, and Ryan Pulock will all get a qualifying offer. Lou Lamoriello has also said that Joshua Ho-Sang has already received a qualifying offer. So, with that all being said, out of the six remaining RFA’s, who will the Isles keep?0Who do you think they keep?x Resigned Without a doubt in my mind, Sebastian Aho will receive a qualifying offer. Firstly, he got pulled up for...
    New York Islanders: The one quote from Lou Lamoriello yesterday that stuck out than the rest By: Rob Taub ShareTweetFlipRedditThis offseason was already going to be a vital one for the New York Islanders to build off their first Eastern Conference Finals appearance in 27 years. And now after general manager Lou Lamoriello’s comments yesterday, there’s even more to that notion. “There’s room for improvement internally and if we can get better externally, we’ll certainly do that,” Lamoriello told reporters yesterday in his first presser since the Isles left the bubble. “But right now we’re going to focus in on keeping our team together.” Keeping the core of that the organization has assembled...
    Anthony Beauvillier’s postseason was huge win for him and the Islanders By: Rob Taub ShareTweetFlipRedditOne thing Anthony Beauvillier has always tried to do is have fun. The New York Islanders’ forward wrote those exact words on his stick for every game played during the team’s run to the Eastern Conference Finals. But Beauvillier didn’t just jot down that message for the sake of doing it. No, he actually lived by those words in the playoffs. And it was a joy to watch. “I think it’s more mental, it’s confidence,” Islanders’ head coach Barry Trotz said about the 23-year-old during the postseason. Beauvillier’s breakout performance — 14 points in 22 games — attracted a...
    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City The New York Islanders are close, as evident by their magical run to the Eastern Conference Final this summer.  Now they just need to find the final pieces of a potential championship puzzle.  The one glaring piece that has been the team’s Achilles heel for two seasons now is the lack of a top-line, pure goal scorer — one that has an ability to change the momentum of a game all by himself. With a newfound status as contenders and a bright future ahead in the form of a new arena at Belmont Park, the Islanders are as an attractive destination...
    One year later, Islanders’ UBS Arena a gleaming light for the future of the organization By: Rob Taub ShareTweetFlipRedditA year ago today, a shovel was put in the ground. It symbolized a new beginning. A long-awaited moment. And overall, a monumental afternoon for the New York Islanders organization. After years of trying and failed attempts for an arena, the Isles finally broke ground on their future home next to Belmont Park. “We celebrate this historic day with our loyal fans and thank Governor Cuomo, who has championed the Belmont Park Arena project from the start,” co-owner Jon Ledecky said during the festivities. “The Islanders also thank the elected officials and our community for...
    The Islanders’ goaltending situation is the best it has been in a long time By: Rob Taub ShareTweetFlipRedditIt’s been a few days now since the New York Islanders’ fantastic playoff run came to an end. That time has allowed for a lot of reflection on how they got as far as they did and what the future may hold heading into next season, whenever that begins. One of the keys to the future — and hopefully more success for the organization — is their goaltending situation. Even with the news this morning that Thomas Greiss — whose been a soldier for the team the last five years and is an unrestricted free agent going into...
    The best part about the Islanders season, which ended in a heartbeat and a heartbreak Thursday, is that it was hard — impossible, even — to find even one member of the rank-and-file fan base who was anything other than utterly smitten by the team. These are always the most fun seasons, after all — the ones that come out of nowhere, that fall from the sky and present themselves at your feet and all but announce: “This, dear friend, is why you care so much. Because every now and again you get a season like this one.” And in an odd way, the fact the Islanders’ march ended shy of a Stanley Cup almost purifies the experience; any championship...
    New York Islanders: What the Islanders need to win the Stanley Cup By: Brandon Schnapp September 18, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Islanders had their run ended just short of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Islanders are in a great spot for the future. The UBS arena is ready in 2021. Ilya Sorokin is an Islander. The Isles made a deep run and proved the whole league wrong. Lou Lamoriello still needs to make a big move to improve the team and make them cup contenders for awhile. There are three things the Isles need to do to accomplish said goal.

    After two games and two losses without forward Brayden Point, the Tampa Bay Lightning are heading into Game 6 with the possibility of playing once again without the Conn Smythe Trophy candidate.  Coach Jon Cooper and his team are no strangers to playing without key players throughout this playoff run. It was almost a rare sight to have seen the Lighting hit the ice during the season with a fully healthy squad. Top players like defenceman Jan Rutta and most notably, team captain Steven Stamkos have not only missed a significant amount of time throughout the regular season, but through these Stanley Cup playoffs as well. Going into Game 6 on Thursday night, the Lightning will be without another of...
    From Kelly Clarkson’s lips to the last seven Stanley Cup winners’ ears. What didn’t kill them made them stronger, each of those teams having faced elimination at least once on the road to a championship. Will the Islanders join those teams that have come out on the other side? Jordan Eberle’s double overtime goal to win Tuesday’s Game 5 against the Lightning marked the team’s second escape act of the tournament following the second-round Game 7 shutout against the Flyers. They would need at least two more — Thursday’s Game 6 before Saturday’s if-necessary Game 7 — in order to have the chance to join that group. A review of the peril the last seven Cup-winners faced: 2019: St. Louis...
    Scott Mayfield has made big strides this postseason for the Islanders By: Rob Taub September 17, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThere’s been a lot to be excited about as the New York Islanders during their run in the playoffs. That includes the progression from one player who has been a big part of the steadfast defensive core they’ve built in recent years, Scott Mayfield. Mayfield, despite a few setbacks (or broken sticks to be specific), has made some big strides since the Isles have started bubble play at both ends of the ice. In 21 games, Mayfield has recorded five points and is a +13 overall, which is the best on the team. Three...
    Johnny Boychuk’s leadership was on full display in his return last night for the Islanders By: Rob Taub September 16, 2020 ShareShareTweetA lot of people were waiting for Johnny Boychuk to make his return for the New York Islanders. It finally came last night. After he had not suited up since game one of the qualifying round against the Florida Panthers, where he suffered a concussion after taking a high hit from Florida’s Mike Matheson, Boychuk finally got the call from head coach Barry Trotz to go back into the lineup. Boychuk didn’t disappoint in his first game back, which just happened to be the biggest of the postseason for his...

    If it were easy to come back from 3-1 down in the conference finals, more than one team in NHL history would have been able to do it. But there is one, and one alone, to overcome such exigent circumstances, and that would be the 2000 Devils, who took three straight from the Flyers before defeating the Stars in a six-game final to earn the team’s second Stanley Cup title. That comeback was kick-started in the moments after the Devils’ Game 4 defeat at the Meadowlands when Larry Robinson, the club’s generally mild-mannered coach, kicked over a trash can and erupted with a tirade aimed at his players. That type of history was apparently not duplicated by Barry Trotz on...
    New York Islanders: Lineup Changes for the Future By: Brandon Schnapp September 14, 2020 ShareShareTweetThe New York Islanders are not going to win the Stanley Cup this year. The Islanders finally ran into a team that can outplay them for a full 60 minutes. A good coach and a good system can only get a team so far. Eventually, the roster must be improved greatly. This is the Islanders’ true problem and the reason why they won’t beat Tampa. Tampa is a more talented team than the Islanders. But, this doesn’t mean the Islanders can’t make a run for the cup next year. Their key pieces aren’t that old, and they have some...
    The Islanders will be without forwards Casey Cizikas and Tom Kuhnhackl for the remainder of the playoffs. Before the Isles’ 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday afternoon, the team announced that Cizikas and Kuhnhackl sustained injuries and would be unavailable for the rest of the postseason. Both players left the Edmonton bubble. Barry Trotz said he knew Saturday night one of the two would be leaving the bubble before finding out about the other Sunday morning. “They both mean a lot to our team, it’s not just one or the other,” defenseman Nick Leddy said on a Zoom call following Sunday’s loss. “It’s very tough. You never want to see a guy get hurt. The biggest...
    The Islanders will probably be with out forwards Casey Cizikas and Tom Kuhnhackl for the rest of the playoffs. Earlier than the Isles’ 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday afternoon, the group introduced that Cizikas and Kuhnhackl sustained accidents and can be unavailable for the remainder of the postseason. Each gamers left the Edmonton bubble. Barry Trotz mentioned he knew Saturday evening one of many two can be leaving the bubble earlier than discovering out concerning the different Sunday morning. “They each imply lots to our group, it’s not only one or the opposite,” defenseman Nick Leddy mentioned on a Zoom name following Sunday’s loss. “It’s very robust. You by no means need to see a...

    Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello added another acclamation to his Hall of Fame resume, being named winner of the NHL’s Jim Gregory GM of the Year award for the 2019-20 season. It marks the first time Lamoriello has won the award, which began being given out in 2010. The 77-year-old Lamoriello, who previously won three Stanley Cups as GM of the New Jersey Devils, edged out Tampa Bay’s Julien BriseBois and Dallas’ Jim Nill in voting done by a 41-member panel of GMs, NHL executives and media members. Lamoriello’s key moves in his second season with the semifinalist Islanders were the free-agent signings of Semyon Varlamov and Derick Brassard, the re-signing of captain Anders Lee and others and the...
    Islanders basic supervisor Lou Lamoriello added one other acclamation to his Corridor of Fame resume, being named winner of the NHL’s Jim Gregory GM of the 12 months award for the 2019-20 season. It marks the primary time Lamoriello has gained the award, which started being given out in 2010. The 77-year-old Lamoriello, who beforehand gained three Stanley Cups as GM of the New Jersey Devils, edged out Tampa Bay’s Julien BriseBois and Dallas’ Jim Nill in voting carried out by a 41-member panel of GMs, NHL executives and media members.

    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Lou Lamoriello of the New York Islanders is the winner of the Jim Gregory general manager of the year award. The league announced Saturday night that Lamoriello finished ahead of fellow finalists Julien BriseBois of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Jim Nill of the Dallas Stars. Colorado’s Joe Sakic was fourth and Vegas’ Kelly McCrimmon fifth in voting by GMs, league executives and media members after the second round of the playoffs. Lamoriello’s Islanders are in the Eastern Conference final thanks to several moves he made in free agency in the summer of 29 and at the February trade deadline. The 77-year-old signed free agent goaltender Semyon Varlamov and forward Derick Brassard traded for center Jean-Gabriel...
    New York Islanders: 3 Stars of the Game 3 Win By: Brandon Schnapp September 12, 2020 ShareShareTweetThe New York Islanders have made the Eastern Conference Finals a real series. Game 3 was easily one of the most entertaining games of the 2020 playoffs. The Islanders played their hearts out, and it shows. A mix of desperation and frustration led them to clutch out the win. There were three stars that led the Islanders to victory last night. Their efforts did not go unrecognized, and honestly, I believe three stars are too little to show how good the Isles played last night. But, without further ado, here are the three stars of the night....
    New York Islanders: Lou Lamoriello’s Case for General Manager of the Year By: Brandon Schnapp September 10, 2020 ShareShareTweetNew York Islanders‘ general manager Lou Lamoriello is a nominee for the Jim Gregory award. This award goes to the best general manager of the year, as voted by his peers. Mr. Lamoriello has a strong case for winning this award. The Islanders’ captain and franchise player John Tavares left in free agency, and just 700+ days later, the Islanders are in the ECF. This doesn’t just happen off of good coaching; there needs to be a good roster put forth. Lou Lamoriello gave the Islanders the extra pieces they needed to make a deep...
    The Islanders’ fourth line continues to live up to its name despite another loss By: Rob Taub September 10, 2020 ShareShareTweetThere’s a reason the New York Islanders are known for having the “best fourth line in hockey”. They simply cause havoc and can change the dynamic of a game. It was evident once again last night in the team’s crushing 2-1 loss in game two to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Needing a big-time start, following just an embarrassing effort in game one Monday night, Islanders’ head coach Barry Trotz deployed the Matt Martin, Casey Cizikas and Cal Clutterbuck (a game-time decision) trio early in the game. And what did they do,...

    Nothing went the Islanders’ way last night….except one thing By: Rob Taub September 8, 2020 ShareShareTweetAmid the New York Islanders getting run out of the building last night in the opening game of the Eastern Conference Final, not all was lost. Jordan Eberle, who couldn’t buy a goal during the team’s second round victory over the Flyers, finally struck pay dirt.

    Islanders fourth-line winger Cal Clutterbuck was visibly shaken up after blocking a hard shot from Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev in the second period of Monday night’s 8-2 blowout loss. After absorbing the shot, Clutterbuck was slow to skate to the bench and was immediately helped to the Islanders’ locker room. Clutterbuck wasn’t on the Islanders bench to start the third period but he reemerged a couple minutes in. The 32-year-old Clutterbuck then retreated to the dressing room once again, but he didn’t return this time. “No update on Clutterbuck,” coach Barry Trotz said on a Zoom call following the loss. “I thought he [played] fine, you always get a consistent play from him. Once we have an update we’ll...
    Islanders fourth-line winger Cal Clutterbuck was visibly shaken up after blocking a tough shot from Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev within the second interval of Monday evening’s 8-2 blowout loss.

    New York Islanders: Will Noah Dobson Get the Starting Spot Next Year? By: Brandon Schnapp September 7, 2020 ShareShareTweetNew York Islanders‘ defenseman Noah Dobson is close to NHL ready. There’s one problem for Dobson, though; there’s a million other defensemen on the roster. The Islanders have established defensemen like Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk. Both of those defenders have long, expensive contracts. This makes them hard to trade and lowers Dobson’s chances of starting a lot.  How can Noah Dobson start next year?

    The 1992-93 NHL contained 24 teams. In the years between then and now, 23 of those clubs — including four franchises that moved locations — had advanced to the conference finals at least once. The one that had not, the one that could not make it to a Stanley Cup finals over all that time, well, they’re there now. Twenty-seven years later, 27 years after David Volek’s Game 7 overtime goal shocked the Penguins and the world, the Islanders have arrived again. And though the franchise is just 11/19 of the way toward the ultimate objective of capturing the chalice, there is surely something noteworthy to celebrate here. This might have been a businesslike performance within the crucible, but...
    New York Islanders: The Evolution of Matt Martin By: Brandon Schnapp September 5, 2020 ShareShareTweetThe New York Islanders drafted Matt Martin in the 5th round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Since then, Matt Martin has been the staple/identity of Islanders’ hockey. Hard-hitting, physical forechecking, and a lot of chirping. Martin has grown as a player since being drafted. He went from a head-hunting enforcer to a “get in front of the net” grinder. Not only has this change impacted the Islanders positively, but also added years to his career. Young Matt Martin played a lot like Ross Johnston does. Both of them are big bodies who stuck up for their best players....
    New York Islanders: Barry Trotz must Change the Lineup for Game 7 By: Brandon Schnapp September 4, 2020 ShareShareShareTweetThe New York Islanders have blown their 3-1 lead against the Philadelphia Flyers. Game 7 is on Saturday, and the Islanders need to make some lineup changes. With little to no momentum on their side, the Islanders need to come out swinging. Not literally swinging, but pressuring the Flyers as they did in game 1. I’ve penciled in 3 lineup changes that I believe are detrimental for the Islanders to close out the series. Thomas Greiss Before overtime, the Flyers had 20 shots on net, and the Islanders had 50. What was the score, you...

New York’s star center was forced to leave Tuesday night’s 4-3 overtime loss in Game 5 in the third period after taking a stick near the eye area from Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux. Shortly after the game, NHL insider Dave Pagnotta said that Barzal is okay and should have no issues playing in Game 6 on Thursday night (7 p.m. ET). However, the Islanders did not disclose any information on their star after the game and did not provide much clarity...
    The Islanders were playing their way out of the postseason. The cushion of a 16-3-1 start to the season had evaporated by March. A seven-game losing streak — in a span of 11 defeats in 13 games — threatened to end their season by early April. Then, the pandemic shut down sports. Now, the Islanders are one win from their first Eastern Conference finals appearance in 27 years, taking a 3-1 series lead into Tuesday’s Game 5 against the Flyers at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. In this incredible and unlikely run, the Islanders have failed to close out their first two series (Florida, Washington) in their first opportunity. They are coming off a 3-1 win — marking Philadelphia’s first consecutive...
    New York Islanders: How the Islanders can Sign Mike Hoffman By: Brandon Schnapp August 29, 2020 PrevPreviousNew York Islanders: Simon Holmstrom on Loan ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Islanders are one good winger away from becoming Stanley Cup champions. Mike Hoffman recorded 29 goals and 30 assists this year; the best news is that he’s a free agent this year. The sad news is that the Islanders have minimal cap space and have to resign Mat Barzal, Ryan Pulock, and Devon Toews. The Islanders need to dump off some salary before even re-signing said, key players. General manager Lou Lamoriello always has something up his sleeve, so this signing is possible. What could the...

    The Jets should be big fans of the Islanders right now. Their Long Island hockey cousins are pulling off something the Jets will try when the regular season hits in a few weeks — where culture overcomes a lack of star power. The Islanders lost John Tavares in free agency in 2018 despite trying to keep him. Two years later, losing their best player has not hurt them as they are playing deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs.

By: Brandon Schnapp August 24, 2020 PrevPreviousNew York Islanders: The Adam Pelech Effect ShareTweet0 SharesThe current 3rd line left winger for the New York Islanders is Michael Dal Colle. The Islanders drafted OHL star Michael Dal Colle with the 5th overall pick in the 2014 NHL entry draft. There was no reason to not draft Dal Colle that high. His stats were amazing; Dal Colle recorded 90+ points two years in a row. Somewhere along the road, Dal Colle lost his way. It took him five years to actually make the team and six years to have a real spot. Dal Colle doesn’t...

    New York Islanders: The Adam Pelech Effect By: Brandon Schnapp August 23, 2020 PrevPreviousNew York Islanders: Round 2 Matchup Breakdown ShareTweet0 SharesNew York Islanders defenseman Adam Pelech has been absolutely sensational these playoffs. Pelech originally was having a great year during the regular season but ended up going down with an Achilles injury. This injury would sideline him for six months. Pelech would miraculously return for the play-in round and dominate. The Islanders are a totally different team with Pelech. Pelech’s Impact on the New York Islanders The Islanders were lacking without their top-line defenseman. It was apparent in their four-goal blown lead against the Capitals in January and all the way through...

As the only remaining team from the original Stanley Cup Qualifiers in the conference, the Islanders joined the East’s top remaining seeds at Hotel X in the Toronto bubble. True to the city’s form, they got stuck in traffic getting to their press conferences on Sunday afternoon, just a day before the start of their second-round series with the Philadelphia Flyers. “Getting us out of our comfort zone isn’t bad at this point,” head coach Barry Trotz said. “Our goal...
    This was, somehow, more than 20 years ago, and Lou Lamoriello had just done one of the most difficult things he’s ever had to do as a general manager. The Devils were scuffling, badly. They had developed a troubling reputation for being a team that could win an awful lot of regular-season games and then, like clockwork, incur a paralyzing case of postseason stage fright. And it was happening again. The regular season had just eight games left, but the Devils were already moving into the tuck position. They’d dominated both the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference all year but lately had gone 5-10-2 and put everything they’d worked for in jeopardy. So Lamoriello made a stunning decision: He...

The Islanders were a game away from sweeping the Capitals this year. If the Isles won game 4, they would be the first team to officially make the second round.

    Taking a two-goal lead in the second period was instrumental for the Islanders’ momentum in their series-clinching win over the Washington Capitals on Thursday, but it wouldn’t have been possible without defenseman Adam Pelech. It could be debated that much of the Islanders’ success in general this postseason wouldn’t be possible without Pelech, whom the team missed dearly while he was out for a majority of the regular season with an Achilles injury. Since returning to the lineup, Pelech has quietly contributed in making the Islanders a more complete team. That continued in Thursday night’s 4-0 win at Scotiabank Arena, in which Pelech jump-started the play that resulted in Anthony Beauvillier’s second goal of the night when he pinned Capitals...
