I still for the life of me can't believe what happened last year. I turned it off a million times just b/c I did not want my kid watching it. .... The were doing everything you learn from the time you are 8 wrong. it was horrific to watch.

A 5 year old should have been able to tell the way the Isles were playing was never going to work. The 80's Oilers did not win until the Isles swept them in 83 and they learned they had to play defense.

I believe she is a perfect analogy to Josh Ho Sang. Lots of talent going to waste....

22. For about 10 seconds, Anders Lee admitted, the Islanders were annoyed at themselves for losing a point Tuesday night in Chicago. Then, the players remembered Mathew Barzal lining up on the wrong side of the ice to take his shootout attempt.

“How could we not laugh and razz him?” the’ captain asked, the smile obvious through the telephone.

What a first half for the Islanders, the NHL’s most pleasant surprise — leaders of the Metropolitan Division. Asked about All-Star Weekend vacation plans, Lee said, “I’m going to be with half the league in the Bahamas.”

But you’re going there much happier than most, right?

“Yes, we’ll have bragging rights,” he replied with a laugh. “We’re going to walk around proudly.”

What would he have said if told in September this would happen?

“‘Where do I sign?’”

23. Another NHL executive said the Islanders’ strength is that they play their system so well they keep themselves in games. That increases the chances of finding a way to win.

“Every night we have a feeling that there’s not much to worry about,” Lee said. “We’re poised on the bench. Calm. If you stick to the plan and play the right way, you’re in a good spot. Getting production from different guys every night is a huge part of the morale. A lot of us believe in the guys in our room and who we have. The work we have done is validating that. It’s different. Things are different.”

24. Did any of Lou Lamoriello’s rules surprise him, or seem unusually difficult?

“Well, I can barely grow a beard, so that’s not much of an issue for me,” he laughed. “You just do it. Don’t argue.”

Lee paused.

“We needed it in a way. If you understand what I’m saying here, the rules were easy to follow because they are perfect timing for us.”


25. Lee is unrestricted this summer. “This is my home. I don’t see anything that makes me want to do anything different. I’m not worried about it.”

26. Whenever I’d ask Garth Snow or Doug Weight about prospects to come, both would mention Devon Toews. That prediction is looks better by the day.

Regarding the bolded...you can practically feel him wanting to say "because their predecessors were a total (frank)ing joke"

Agreed, but I think he may also be referencing PJ Boy's departure.

Seth Jones of the Blue Jackets, who are among the teams looking up at the Islanders in the Metropolitan Division standings, said, “Barry has had success everywhere he has been. He was with me in Nashville my first year. We went through some things together. He went to Washington and had success there and now he’s with the Islanders, having success. I’ve always thought he was a great coach in my heart and I’m happy for him.”

Aside from the impact of coaching, star players have noticed the impact of a change in address, too.

Said Jones, “Have you seen that building? Come on!”

Holy Cow that is awesome.

With some of these comments, I'm expecting to do better in FA than Leo and Fili. No offense of course.
