New York: Off The Ice....

New York Islander Fan Central | 5/27/2019 07:00:00 PM |

This entry will be very short. Featured entries with dates back to 2016-17 remain on the sidebar, what's been written here & on twitter, is still the way I see things.

If Malkin-Ledecky want to tell the public it's Belmont or Quebec, as Dolan's Newsday propaganda people for two years love to claim, please tell us......along with how you are walking away from all the cable money through 2032, which is still around 300 million dollars?

Let's hope we have a nice October-November Coliseum weeknight schedule to convince everyone who had any doubt (if 25 years of empty seats in Nassau from 1989-2015 were not enough) by the announced 11-12,000 crowds last season Nassau/Belmont is not where you put an arena for an NHL team, when thirty teams need or are screaming for a city-based arena.

We know the New York Islanders are pawns here, and this is NOT being built for them, the 41-day tenant. This is only to get a shovel in the ground as revenge for 2013, eight miles from an arena Dolan lost, along with the HUB he wanted to develop.

The player header is getting a break until the roster is decided, the historical site has the classic header/tons of images. I expect to update on draft day/prior as always.

Lehner? No, too many soft goals/outbursts/talking/injuries. Need a true #1, system made both goalies, a few similar goalies more durable out there. Sure, he'll get the Masterson/not Vezina.

Lee? Pay the man, give him the years, see no skating issues, great leader/character player, will get 20-40 if he's healthy for years.

Eberle? He's not getting more than six anywhere, who's replacing him as RW on top lines if Wahlstrom/Ho-Sang are not ready? Finished great in first round, he'll be fine, he wants a raise, has to be a small one but would give it to him, was clutch against west all season, he wants seven, no thanks.

Filppula? You are spending all this money (above) you are going to need some bargains, who better? Sorry Trotz, you want more scoring but players here need raises who bought into the system.
