Yes, it's very early, we are getting plenty of ups/downs besides not losing in regulation at Barclay's.

The one alarming trend is the powerplay & allowing almost as many goals as they score, they changed coaches to struggle this badly?

A Few Choice Words For Brian Compton:

New York Islander Fan Central | 11/04/2017 11:11:00 AM | Comment Here
A few folks informed me Brian Compton's audio blog on Friday took some shots obviously at myself/this website.
"We played a little piece the audio at the top, which is really just to take a shot at somebody."
           "No, no, no, no, no...............I'm ok."

"All I'm doing there, is because someone brought it up to me because I don't follow that clown."

"He's out to smear me, and anybody who covers this team."

"I don't make stuff up, you don't get to where I am in this business by making stuff up, even if I did make it up, Kimber or someone else from the Islanders would have told me in five seconds, hey where did you get that figure, take that down or change it, or whatever. It's been there for weeks, and the reason it's been there it's because, Jon Ledecky, says it, and you saw the proof at the top of the show."
Fact-Twin Rinks aka Northwell was purchased in a bankruptcy sale for about 8-9 million in 2015.

Ledecky said 60 million. Compton did not bother doing any research for a month or correct that so when the article came out saying they spent 3 million on renovations, I posted Compton's 60 million dollar earlier comment from Ledecky, and wrote he was clueless. 
For those who visited this site around 7am on Sat, Nov 4th, I wrote an entry titled: An Open Apology to Brian Compton, shocked, thinking I had written he was a clown. 

I wrote about three paragraphs with a personal apology, explaining there is no excuse for my writing something that inappropriate ever regardless whether we agree or disagree, what my site & twitter feed has always been about, apologizing to everyone.

And I decided to edit the tweet I wrote from a few days ago.

Funny thing happened doing that.
I never wrote he was a clown, simply that he was clueless.
So I wasted a few important minutes of my time trying to figure out what's going on here.

Now I have a few comments of my own.................

When does 60 million equal three million for a building that cost 50 million to construct in 2013 that was purchased for nine million in a bankruptcy sale by Charles Wang?
NYIFC Comments: Mr Ledecky seems to believe there is more revenue to be made in Cuomo- Dolan's Belmont taxpayer arena as his tenant, then in NYC, which is the equivalent of suggesting the Caps could have made more revenue staying in Landover when Ledecky was part of an ownership group that moved into a new arena in downtown DC.

Also the two years at Barclay's (with virtually no Sat games/football Sunday games, Dolan media killing arena to drive fans away) still outdrew all but three Coliseum seasons in the 21st century. How much guaranteed money is Dolan giving them to be his 41-day tenant in the middle of nowhere because it will never come from fans purchasing tickets 41 times at big boy prices.

Barclay's can shut all this down by not opting out in January, locking the team into it's 25 year lease, which would mean no arena in-between Barclay's/Coliseum.

Malkin-Ledecky want their 53.5 million less expenses next season, any notion this is honoring a contract for them next season is incorrect. They can opt out in January, and if Prokhorov also does the lease ends at the conclusion of this season.

Just wanted folks to know the historical section has been repaired. There will be more upgrades to that section moving forward, but everything that used to be here is there with far more content.
