Cool 2013-2014 New York Islanders

I know there are a few fans in here and I'll spend most of the season on a ship deployed to the Middle East so this will be my way of staying connected.

1. John Tavares will be wearing the big C on his sweater this year.

2. Last season in Uniondale with the move to Brooklyn approaching.

3. Will the Islanders return to the playoffs this year with the new Metropolitan Division?

4. Another year with Nabokov in goal. Will he get as many starts as he did last year?

The season starts this Friday Oct 4. 2013 in New Jersey against the Devils.

Go Isles!

The Islanders need to bring back the fisherman logo at least once this year.

Johnny is going to score 60 goals this year. He really is an elite player now.

I wish they would have landed Bernier from the Kings, instead those damn Leafs snagged him. Nabby is okay but I wish we had someone else in net.

I was surprised they did not try to sign Tim Thomas, I felt Thomas was better than Nabakov.

Nabby sucks in the playoffs too. He let up so many soft goals to the Pens last season in the playoffs which pissed me off. I would have liked to have seen Thomas in an Islander jersey myself. We have a nice core but we need a better net minder than Nabby.

I'm going to be on the Island for Thanksgiving but I didn't see any games scheduled that I would be able to attend. Bummer.

A bad team that held their own against Chicago last night. That was the most I have enjoyed a game where one of my teams lost. Really excited to be a fan right now. We just have to keep our core together until we move to Brooklyn and then sign a few top tier free agents to solidify a contender to win the division.

Isles have a great core with Taveras, Okposo, Moulson, Grabner. Mcdonald and Hamonic, would like to see them get a franchise goalie. Poulin has shown flashes. As stated above not a big fan of Nabakov.

It's Nabokov. Yeah, typical. Go blame a goalie who made tons of great saves in the last three games. If offense would step up and hit open nets then it would be another story.

Honestly, I think the MVP of the team is Nielsen.

It's time for the coach to do some serious yelling.

Nabby has been keeping us in games but I still wish they would have never traded Luongo. I still hate Mad Mike for trading away Roberto. I won't even touch the Yashin deal and I know Yashin was in the prime of his career but he had a bad attitude and to think we dealt Zdeno in that deal. Oh and the first round pick in that same trade turned out to be Jason Spezza...........

Looks like I'll be home for Thanksgiving so I'll be in Uniondale Nov. 29 for the Red Wings game.
