New York On The Ice: Contenders or Not?

If someone told me Bailey was a top five player, Lee was on his way to forty goals, Eberle, Ladd were scoring & Tavares was getting his numbers, plus Barzal was dominating, I would write they would be close to 15 over, well on their way to a playoff spot.

Instead they are the 2nd wildcard team, in a division where all eight teams could make the playoffs. So here's the big question.







Given goals/chances allowed even before deHaan's injury, just don't see it happening if was honestly asked on this day, something has to click on defense that has rarely happened this season.

New York Islander Fan Central On All Topics 12/21/17. Left some things out, could have done another hour.

Chris (Dolan changed my name to Christopher) Botta was the source material for the Metro Ice Challenge money, pregame elimination, ITV blackout of internet game, before he got amnesia & needed a job & was hired by Dolan from July 2014-Aug 2016 after he started trashing the Islanders for his resume.

I have put up those screen caps plenty of times on those subjects.
Did my best.
Happy Holidays.

NYI Fans Require Facts On Cuomo-Dolan Ponzi Scheme Arena

New York Islander Fan Central | 12/21/2017 11:03:00 PM | Comment Here


I'm an honest person who has always written the truth.

The fix was in. Dolan said jump, Cuomo said how much money you want, and his revenge arena facts/finances/Elmont be damned. It's Dolan's arena.

Our team will be pawns there, as soon as it's proven the attendance cannot support the revenue needed the drumbeat will begin to get them out so Dolan can bring down the Wolfpack.

Newsday is just getting started in the revenge business with their paid media turning to the Coliseum where they lost, and resented it every day since.

Our fans are somehow clueless Dolan offered less money there for a smaller renovation.

Facts? Their media people want no part of that unless it's to stop something Dolan does not want, it's not 2011 where they killed the arena vote, their jobs are at stake.

Please tell me with a straight face if Dolan was running the Coliseum today, and won in 2013, Ledecky would not have been laughed out of Cuomo's office, with Newsday pounding home why does LI need another arena, we have Dolan's AHL team in his Nassau Coliseum.

Cuomo Awards Dolan His Belmont Taxpayer Revenge Arena...NYI 41 Day Tenants

Most owners are overjoyed to tell you it's their arena, but it's a private matter when it's really not the NYI arena beyond 41 days as Dolan's tenant.
Very sad day, but this is payback from day one of Dolan losing the Coliseum to Ratner. I'm surprised Ledecky was not ordered to wear a Fisherman jersey by Cuomo-Dolan.

The minute it appeared in Dolan's echo-chamber in the summer of 2016, it was likely decided back then in Albany.

No way was Dolan happy with thousands of new cheering NYI fans in NYC, and Ratner renovating the building he lost at home on Long Island, he did not spend 600 million for a money-losing newspaper to permit this to stand. His tax exemption plus money to renovate Penn Station was not enough for him, he owns Cuomo like he owned Shelly Silver.

Dolan was getting his revenge arena eight miles from the one he lost from Cuomo's taxpayers, our team was never given any public reason they could not have their own NYC arena like everyone else, despite their superior attendance at Barclay's to Nassau most seasons without Sat/weekend games.

Ledecky was just a gullible pawn, who clearly did no homework, same as when Nassau gave the Flyers/Smg the Coliseum lease to take all the Islanders revenue, but this deal never goes away, and he lied saying he hoped to be at Barclay's for many years to come nor did he spend 60 million on Northwell. Wang bought the facility for nine million, and renovated it.

Dolan operates this Belmont Ponzi-scheme arena, he is the final say, and we'll likely never know what price the Islanders paid, which from here begins with all territorial rights to NY forfeit, signing away the outdoor game home rights in Queens, plus television contract money from 2031 deal, along with some attendance based out clauses so Dolan can bring down the Wolfpack which was his 2013 plan with Ranger preseason games/practices when this fails.

Now we see if Prokhorov wants to force the NYI to stay at Barclay's through 2040 under their current deal by not opting out by 1/31/18, which forces our owners to change their public stance, and opt out themselves, meaning they lose 53.5 million next season, and have no arena to play in come October.

Dolan will not be offering them his arena, and Barclay's will likely not be offering the Coliseum after getting behind an arena that hurts Barclay's & Coliseum. Dolan's newspaper will sell 2015 founded Oakview as some kind of legitimate company when it's only a cover name for taxpayer money Albany gives Dolan which has never built one arena.

Ledecky keeps his mouth shut, while Malkin hides in Europe.

Let's see if Tavares is given an offer he can refuse to go sign with the Rangers also as part of the price of all this, we sure did see plenty of those articles from Dolan's salesman telling us NYI offered most money, but they picked the Rangers.

They always left out the massive front-loaded contracts which those players needed before they had to be bought out as fast as you can write Drury, Gomez, Richards. No one wanted to take the risk DiPietro/Yashin did before front-loading.

deHaan Injury Hurts NYI Playoff Chances Unless Snow Acts

New York Islander Fan Central | 12/19/2017 08:32:00 AM | Comment Here

29th in goals allowed, and now they lose their 3rd best defender to another shoulder injury that seemed well behind him in his past, his body grew out since then, and he was durable.

The scoring is going to dry up, they have to win low-scoring games, one bad week can put this team last in the conference given the usual domination by teams in this division, and the Devils absolutely not going away.

deHaan is a left defender, who likely just lost huge in his upcoming UFA.

So now the options are clear if another defender does not go down which is likely given Boychuk's history, and Hickey having his issues.

The Cuomo-Dolan Echo-Chamber Selling Ponzi-Scheme Arena Via Taxpayers Where NYI Are 41-Day Tenants

New York Islander Fan Central | 12/15/2017 02:47:00 AM | Comment Here

I thought it was time to post Dolan's echo-chamber. The people who have to push Dolan's scam through as quickly as possible, despite no financial details, or a community meeting advertised to answer questions where none were given.

The days of 2011/2013 where we got numbers before decisions are long over for Dolan's echo-chamber, it's get Dolan his revenge arena.......facts & truth be damned, media jobs are at stake, who cares that's it's eight miles from the other 16,000 seat arena fans would not go to after 1989 most nights?

Dolan's media is putting on the pressure to get Cuomo's ESD, to make a decision before Prokhorov's 1/30/18 deadline and no doubt Wilpon wants his money where for no given reason our team cannot have a NYC arena that displaces his plans in Flushing where no infrastructure money would be required, and no community would be displaced.

If Prokhorov does not opt out  (36 million is a drop in the bucket he will get back when he sells Barclay's to stop all this)  it forces NYI to stay at Barclay's through 2040.  Ledecky would have to change his public stance they are staying at Barclay's, costing them 53.5 million next season with no place to go next October, and no business operations.

Prokhorov will not let them in any of his buildings if they want to be a willing tenant of Dolan undercutting his two facilities.

But let's look at the list from my long experience creating the echo-chamber. I will leave out LI fans who have been boycotting since 1989 & are very gullible & sadly NY fans who were warming up to NYC even without Sat games the first two years, outdrawing 16/25 Coliseum seasons at gate plus tying six others despite strong push to hurt those numbers this season which should influence Tavares, Bailey, and free agents more than anything.
