The Score on Brock Nelson: Fact or Fiction: 3 players to watch using advanced stats

Here's a little blurb on former UND Fighting Sioux forward Brock Nelson that was written by Ian McLaren of the Score. While it is early, Nelson is having a good season. Thinking of which, I might have to add ole Brock to one of my fantasy teams. Seriously, he could probably score more points than some of the stiffs I have on my teams now. Brock Nelson, F, New York Islanders...

John Tavares praises Connor McDavid

Connor McDavid is widely believed to be the best upcoming NHL prospect and most have penciled his name in to be called first during the 2015 NHL Draft. He has received praise from nearly every hockey outlet, but some recent comments from a former top overall pick go a long way in describing the youngster’s talent.

John Scott demolished the Islanders’ Mikhail Grabovski last night

I strongly dislike John Scott. He’s a worthless goon who has no business being in the NHL. Particularly at the expense of a guy like Paul Bissonnette, who despite also being a goon at the very least resembles a real life hockey player. But this is the cleanest of devastating hits you will ever see. continue reading...

Sweeping declarations are fun. On Thursday night, the New York Islanders will square off against the San Jose Sharks in a matchup of teams off to hot starts. While it’d be extremely far-fetched to say that this is a potential Stanley Cup Finals preview, there’s no doubt that both of these teams have the ability to make some noise in the postseason when the springtime rolls...

#457220062 / Due to the Islanders recent unsuccessful play, the Rangers-Islanders rivalry hasn’t been all that intense, despite the Isles magical season just two years ago.  However, a hot start for the Islanders and a Rangers team one year removed from an appearance in the Stanley Cup Final makes for a heated match-up.  The Islanders got the best of the Rangers...

New York Islanders Off-Season Review: Did the Isles Have the Best Off-Season in the NHL?
