Garth Snow With The Ballsiest Pick Condition In Hockey

Lets Talk Conditional Picks. In this case, let's talk about one specific conditional pick, and that's the 7th rounder that got the team Tyler Kennedy. The 7th round pick in 2015 becomes a 6th rounder if the Islanders win the Stanley Cup with Kennedy playing in at least half of the Finals. Uhhh, does someone have a Cup on their mind? Or does someone have a Cup on their mind? You don't just slap that type of condition on to a 7th/6th round pick unless you're focusing on a cup...

FYI, Those Brooklyn Hockey Logos Have Nothing To Do With The Islanders

Earlier in the week @NetsDaily reported that the Barclays Center had applied to trademark two separate “Brooklyn Hockey” logos. The article got its views, the tweets got their retweets, and Isles fans took to the web to voice their displeasure with a move that seemed to be giving fans a look at things to come in Brooklyn Only one problem… The two logos donning the phrase “Brooklyn Hockey” have nothing to do with the Islanders, or the NHL for that matter. In fact, they are both in affiliation with the, of...

These Islanders Are Built For The Long Haul

A lot of things have been said about Garth Snow; some good, most bad. And after a few hickups and a couple of years in the pits of the NHL, Garth Snow has risen, along with him his Islanders club, like a Phoenix from the ashes. The product that now stands in front of us is a powerful one; with solid goaltending, multiple players with a knack for the back of the net, young yet up and coming defense, the c-word and at the very top of the list of positive adjectives that describe these...

Sound Tigers Line Brawls Are The Bestest

(Courtesy of YouTube user Kyle Mace) Been a busy weekend so I'm a little late to the jump, but MAN do I love a good AHL line brawl. Half the guys out there are either youngsters trying to crack an NHL club, or grizzled, 34 year-old AHL career men who have resorted to face punching as a way to stay in the sport. No question Gallant was involved; it seems like any fight the Sound Tigers find themselves in Gallant is right in the middle. Stick tap to Mayfield for showing...

Thinking Out Loud: Calder’s, Contracts, and Call Ups

Hell of a week if I do say so myself. Peaks and valleys, as we saw the team fall flat late against the Rags, but to then bounce back and stomp out both the league's worst, and the league's best. Tavares is back in the points race, as his 60 points on the year has him just 3 behind the league's leader Patrick Kane, Halak has tied yet another franchise record by picking up his 32nd win(tied for 2nd in the league with Carey Price, nbd), and Leddy is coming off one of the best offensive...

Remember That One Time: The Penguins Brawl

Four years ago today... Prison riots like these are why we still remember names like Haley, Gillies (the other one), Konopka, and Hillen. We saw a young Hammer and Martin throwin' boes, Bailey getting in on the action in a rare occurrence, and 346 penalty minutes get handed out collectively, as February 11th became a date that will forever live in infamy among Islander fans. When the dust settled, the Islanders finished the game with 9 skaters left, the Pens with 10. The on ice festivities was a carryover from the previous week's meeting between...

Strome Drops The Gloves With Krug and OMG S’cute

(Courtesy of NHL.com) Ryan Strome, the Kenny Wu to Martin and Clut's Bash Bro's. They grow up so, so fast. First everyone is arguing whether or not he you're ready for the NHL, now you're putting up numbers and dropping gloves with guys named Torey. This, my friends, is called "life."...

Kyle Okposo Leads The League In The Only Stat That Matters

(Courtesy of Sportsnet.ca) OH SNAP! Video starts off slow, but Okposo steals the show in the final 3 seconds. Took Wheeler a good minute to name three.. with help.. and then Okie knocks all four out in a matter of seconds? Ruthless trivia skills, just ruthless. They say that the players in the NHL belong to a brotherhood, and nothing is more satisfying than dunking on your brothers in a game of Trivial Pursuit, and that's not an opinion, that's a fact. Take your money PK, take your freakishly good looks Karlsson, Okie...
