ISLANDERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Islanders: there are no “statement games”

For what seems so long ago, before the Islanders embarked on a home and home, back-to-back series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, we explored the idea of Islanders trying to win “statement games.” The Islanders were one of the best teams in the league through the first 18 games, winning 12 and losing six.

Mikhail Grabovski Grabs Top Line Role, Tickles The Twine In His Return

With Kyle Okposo basically out for the rest of the season big questions about what will happen in the Isles’ top six loom large. In the past no one would have cared at all beyond when Okie was getting back into the lineup, but 2015 is a new year and the Isles offense is one of the best in the league posting a heady 3.2 goals per game, good for second in the NHL. So now that question...

Why the Islanders can survive without Kyle Okposo

The word out of New York Islanders camp coming out of All-Star weekend isn’t great.  Forward Kyle Okposo, second-leading scorer on the team, will miss the next 6-8 weeks with an upper body injury.

Friday night was a “good news”, “not so good news” kind of evening for the New York Islander prospects.
