    Agree. I thought the offseason moves made the team slightly older and not any better (maybe in sum a bit worse). I thought the endgame to that was to depend more on the young talent. I guess not?

    At least they scraped one out tonight at home against the mediocre Coyotes.

    Yes a nailbiter against the 2nd worst team in the league at home. Thankfully Boychuk chucked one in with 3 minutes to go. Is he returning to his 2014-15 form? But he just cleaned up Halak's mess after giving up 2 savable goals.

    Apparently Pulock was injured during the game.

    Back to .500. The defense is geling are scoring goals. Tavares with a 3 point night and Beauvillier has 5 points now and is looking like he will stay in the NHL all season. It's not all gloom and doom.

    It's not gloom and doom, but it's kind of a shame that one bad game is going to get Barzal sent back.

    I think we will get a better idea about this team after the next two games against Montreal and Pittsburgh. Arizona and Minnesota not exactly quality teams.

    Was at the train wreck tonight. Horrible. Heard a "Fire Cappy!" chant for the first time in awhile. As much as I agree with that, we need "fire Snow" chants too. Not signing Ox was OK if you were hoarding money for JT and the endgame was to rely on the kids but then go out and sign Ladd for almost as much money? Snow and Cappy need to exit together.

    Dumping Parenteau and keeping a 3rd goalie is pretty stupid and the Chimera signing is useless.

    Apparently Snow has been shopping Halak. Because more important to not lose your number 3 goaltender. Might be new ownership but they seem to be as committed to Snow/Capuano as Wang was.

    Last night ticket reps were all over the upper sections offering fans tickets to sit down in the lower level sections.

    Season ticket holders had double tickets dumped into their accounts for yesterday's game so the building wouldn't look empty on national TV

    I know . Got the notice but since it was only one day in advance had no one to offer them too. Maybe if the offer had been made earlier I could have gave them away

    Islanders are digging a pretty deep hole for themselves. Took no advantage of 10 games out of 11 at home. At least they salvaged a point last night.

    Another night, another loss. But Cap said he was happy with the teams performance.

    Finally a solid win last night, though against a lousy team. Chimera, Ladd and Kulemin finally get their first goals of the season Pelech gets a point in his first game. Beauvillier inexplicably scratched again but has already played 10 games so he is here till at least game 40. I would like to see Barzal get in a few more games before they send him back to the juniors.

    Can't really get excited seeing them beat a team on an 8 game losing streak. And "Fire Cappy" chants were heard early in the game. Isles totally wasted have 10 home games out of 13 to start the season

    Last season Islanders had one of the best penalty killing teams in the league. So far this season with most of the same players one of the worst. Only good thing that might come out of this free fall is maybe the new owners will realize it's time to replace Snow and Capuano

    I am an optimist but tonight broke me. I am friggen furious right now. This team is a sad joke. Halak just crumbles under the pressure.

    Another point lost in the last minute. With all the talk about the bad ice at Barclays Islanders have yet to win a game on so called good ice.
