Islander Offense Improved

New York Islander Fan Central | 11/14/2008 11:32:00 AM
No cause to plan the parade for the New York Islanders in the Canyon of Hero's
come June but it does have to be written with Frans Nielsen, Okposo, Tambellini, Bergenheim, Bailey and even Nate Thompson this club is producing more goals than it did a year ago as opposed to when it had Satan, Vasicek, Fedotenko.

Of course at this time a year ago Vasicek was scoring and Fedotenko had a good beginning and the offensive numbers do not lie the Islander young players so far are not scoring many goals.

What is different? Hunter, Weight (assist) and of course Mark Streit are a big part of this but to this point whether you want to claim NHL scoring is up at least in terms of goals per game have improved with this system and that's with a lot of injuries.

We all know the end result still is much worse than a year ago at this time.

By contrast here was the two goals or less in fourteen game stretch last season where
a goal is awarded for a shootout win on paper.
