    Never knew he was sick. Maybe it was sudden.

    Charles Wang, a technology company founder and former owner of the New York Islanders hockey team, died Sunday. He was 74.Wang died in Oyster Bay, New York, said his attorney John McEntee in an emailed statement. A cause of death was not disclosed.
    Thanks for rescuing the franchise, I guess. No thanks for running it like Sam, Sam the Discount Man.

    RIP and let's hope for better days ahead.

    Read in the paper Charles was suffering from lung cancer. Charles had his faults but he kept the Isles in NY and had he gotten the ok for his lighthouse project the Isles might have been a top team right now.

    Back to back wins over Pittsburgh! Tied for the division lead. Shows you what can happen with a real coaching staff.

    Now 6-0 in the division after a 3-0 shut out of the Devils. All alone in first place!

    Wish I could have seen that one tonight. Especially with Barzal getting the natural hat.

    Trotz has completely changed the team. From giving up the most goals to being among the leaders in fewest goals against. Barring injuries will be in the playoff race all season. So different than last season. And bringing up Ho Sang and Toews from the AHL has been great.

    Last time an Islander got a hat trick against the Leafs. 1986- Mike Bossy.

    Isles have now won 8 out of 9 games and are just 3 points out of first place. Not missing pajama boy right now.

    Toews needs to stay when Hickey comes back.

    Such a pleasure to see a team that doesn't run around like headless chickens in its own end. Had almost forgotten what that looks like.

    I think Toews will stay. Giving Toews, Ho Sang and Dal Colle time at Bridgeport first has really worked out well.

    They go from giving up the most goals since 2007 to giving up the fewest goals in the league.

    "First-place Islanders." Don't get to say that very much in January.

    According to Newsday, they were in first place on March 10, 2015, but before that, the last time they were in first place past the halfway mark in a season was in 1991.

    Good job by Caps fans to cheer Trotz. I realize that's what they should have done -- the Caps basically don't want to pay coaches, Stanley Cup or no -- but you know how fans can be.

    With today's win over the Ducks Isles now have the fifth best record in the league. Moved ahead of Tavares' Leafs tonight.

    Probably the least action I have seen in this thread in years. Ironically when Isles are possibly on their way to their best season in over 30 years!

    Thoughts on the trade deadline?

    Not sure what Lou is going to do. Need someone who can score but do not want to mess up the team chemistry.

    Lol at the “Who’s your daddy?” Chants to Tavares. Haven’t heard that in a few years

    A little harsh.

    But “hell yeah” on the win. 180 degrees from the Calgary game. Czikas is playing bonkers.
