Analyzing The New York Isanders Newest Defencemen Depth

Johnny Boychuk (!!!) and Nick Leddy are Islanders after Saturday’s trade that sent a bunch of garbage minor leaguers, 2nd round draft picks and the rights (?) to Anders Nillson packing. If you want the full trade scope go here. Garth Snow did an admirable job solidifying his offense and defense this summer. Discussed in my preview of the Islanders, …

Dan Boyle Bolsters Blueline, But New York Rangers Are Still Missing A Big Piece

We’re one week in to free agency, and the first two days certainly provided a flurry of activity. Things have cooled off drastically in the transaction department since then (with arbitration rulings in the not too distant future), but there are still plenty of free agents remaining.

Face-off Issues

The Islanders are going through a rough slump.  In fact, they’ve been pretty terrible for a few weeks.  You can look at almost every aspect of the team right now and find something to improve on.  Instead of running through the laundry list of “have tos” that the team needs to achieve, let’s focus on one aspect of their play …

Depth Perception

“Maybe the Islanders aren’t as deep as we thought… It took 7 and a half games to come to light, but midway through the second period of the Islanders 4-3 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, the “deepest” Islanders team in recent memory was looking paper thin.  With Lubomir Visnovsky already exiting the game in the first period with a concussion, …
