@tonelli27 Wow haven't said this in a while........F WANG


It is this keen insight and useful commentary that has me shaking my head.


What are you two, a couple of school kids sneaking into class and writing dirty words on the chalk board when before school starts..

Does anyone here know what happen to Chris Botta? Checked his twitter, last entry was July

Joe Barrett Lights the lamp 4 times at ice works...  I was in the stand watching behind the bench.. Couldn't believe my eyes, kid was blazing over the red line with a Marlboro light hangin out of his mouth dekes two Dmen goes five hole on the netminder... Kid is killing the over 35 and older league... Somebody has to pick him up...

Edmonton wants an elite center in return for Perron.  Are they off their rockers or is Perron worthy?  I certainly wouldn't call Strome of Nelson "elite" but they are both very good and getting better by the week it seems... and I wouldn't give up either, straight up for Perron at this point.  Maybe I'm missing something because I haven't seen Perron that much over the past 3-4 years, but I can't imagine that he's worthy of an "elite" return on a trade.

Not much here, but always good to have some unedited interviews on the site.

Flyers on Monday..excellent..

forrhas is supposed to be 'perhaps' don't know how the other came out there

I have read guys posting in here about meeting at a game, and making aquaintences with each other, i'd like to make a suggestion why don't some guys opt to get on Skype, it's absolutey free, except forrhas buying a $40 dollar camera, and can see each other face to face after games, and not just imagine what we all look like in here, anybody game? I already have a Skype account.

my regards to dk and family also

The best plan I can come up with for Grabner's return is a simple rotation. 82 games, Cappy's mixed and matched so everyone plays with everyone already, so giving a player a rest on any given night should be do-able. Grabner's speed is an asset; he can hit  a bit... should be helpful vs certain teams whre other forwards skill sets might play better against others. That's what I'd do.

Very impressed last night by the Isles forecheck. The penguins - THE PENGUINS - struggled to get out of their zone most of the night. The Isles - right now - are playing as well as anyone in the NHL. They are faster, well positioned, physical and above all - re-lent-less. Cappy's got them playing as a very, very solid team (with a capital T). I'm really impressed.


Excited to go tomorrow night; after the Rangers, I hate the Flyers the most.

@doc942

Perron isn't worth that kind of return. He has this season and next on his deal before becoming a UFA. His play has slid downward since his move to the Oilers. He is a middle six forward. The Isles have a stack of middle six forwards..


It is interesting the was pretty blunt in his criticism of the team one day, and on the block the next day. Have we ever seen that kind of response before?

Dude that is the gayest thing I have ever read.... You are giving all Islander fans a bad name...  Please remove your post and don't ever write anything like that again......  Thanks

Great job by her.

@islesfan27 @bubbamac19 Funny - I saw her pregame and I agree - much prettier off camera. Love her enthusiasm; was a bit concerned early on about her speech (lisp?) at first but she's really good, especially  after games with the on the ice interviews.

@jason i dont see how you m can do that given that contract, they aren't gonna sit a guy who they are paying that much. Btw u were mentioned earlier today by pro bailey guys as being the worst anti josh guy here.

@chrisredux it ridiculous that lee will be sent down to bridgeport, the same folks who were crazy about conacher and never saw anything wrong with him being on the first line. Notice how much better tavares has played with kulimen or nelson there?

tonelli27

@chrisredux chris keep in mind he also said we'd finish ahead of the rangers and win a round last yr with the crappy goaltending we had.

@chrisredux the same fool who thought RDP has a gold medal?

@tonelli27 agreed.....and how much better would JT be if he had another elite winger...

Isleguy27

@chrisredux @tonelli27 So chris you obviously believe that Okposo is an elite winger? That's interesting, because not that long ago, orange commented that Tavares was not an elite player. Interesting.

@chrisredux I'll take a round and go from there.

@27 and i know you wont agree but this season will not be successful unless a playoff series is won. Its about damn time that guys like you raise the bar and stop patting snow on the back for doing his job.

tonelli27

@27 whats interesting is how guys like you cream in your shorts everytime conacher touched the puck and screamed at us who said he was a career journeyman.

tonelli27

@27 hey 27 he said "another elite winger". You cherry pick quite well.

tonelli27
tonelli27

@27 no i said his defensive lapses and turnovers were alarming and he was not playing like an elite player. I also said it wasn all his fault because i thought he might be not 100% and had conacher on his wing for 10 +games. What chris means i believe is a left winger. So stop bullshyteing ok.

@tonelli27 Nothing but class hey Tonelli?  There are so many things wrong (in addition to half truths, lies and errors) with your various rants/posts, it would take all day to explain in addition to a psychiatrist and some medication for what ails you.

@tonelli27 Does it really matter to you where they Islanders play? You go to two games a season you commented the other day...so what's the big deal?

@chrisredux there a couple of guys on this blog who would have no problem if wang moved the team to plum island?

@chrisredux what a joke he is, he says " if the isles won the cup while wang was owner would you cheer"?? Like thats happening?

@chrisredux and the same guys who tell us to show all this patience with bailey wont give lee any time to mature with the big club and every time conacher touched the puck they had an orgasm.
