Isles-Rangers, Montoya Extended, Donovan Signed

It’s been a slow few weeks here at Islesblogger, but not because there hasn’t been anything going on in Islanders Country lately. No, instead – this blogger was in Sunny South Florida, escaping the crazy fall weather here in NY… Continue Reading


The Blue Collar Islanders

The life of a blue collar worker usually involves going about his or her business quietly, without much notice or recognition. They do the dirty work to get things done, often rolling up their sleeves and digging right in. The… Continue Reading


Islanders Look to Change Gears Against Wild

You can’t fault these Islanders, I mean well – you can but let’s just call it growing pains. The Islanders held off the always dangerous Washington Capitals 1-0 for almost the entire 60 minutes last night. It only took two… Continue Reading

Isles Get Juiced, Score 3 in 99 and Earn a Gritty Win

Over the last few weeks, it’s been rather hard to muster the energy to constructively write about our Islanders. It’s rather tiresome reading all the negative junk on the internet, the media and of course the message boards consisting of… Continue Reading


Streak Over, Weight Coaches Power Play, Colliton Signed, Earthquakes

This is a really late recap – I know Michael, shame on you uh..I mean yourself. Let’s chalk it up to a turkey hangover. Perhaps even a hockey hangover, because I attended several NHL games and played in three myself… Continue Reading
