me too. I dove back in, watching full games instead of reading recaps, everything.

 

now I only watch because I want to be able to tell my children I saw John Tavares play in Islander uniform.

lol, I'm worried he's gone if they don't fix things after moving to Brooklyn and that would disgust me more than anything I've seen as a fan. I'm friends with somebody directly related to Jimmy Howard and I was lobbying for the islanders. I found out after he resigned it was his second choice cause Capuano and the college connection. I couldn't hate Wang cause he's losing money and did everything in his power to keep the team here, but if they don't start spending now with the Brooklyn move and a legit star waiting I'm done. They do stupid sh*t just to hit the cap floor at the moment and that should have stopped as soon as they got a new arena in place.

That's what I think too. He had this look on this face the other day like, "I signed for how many years?" I think the day Tavares walks because the Islanders can't get their sh*t together is the day I quit. I'll follow him to whatever team he goes to, at this point. This season is nearly lost, they don't have any legitimate defensemen, they show no sign of making any moves (coaching, GM, or trades), almost nobody but the Tavares line scores on any kind of regular basis, and unless they re-sign Vanek, that move is a total waste.

 

I thought they'd turned a corner after last year. But no, same old sh*t. I don't blame Tavares for getting the hell out of dodge as soon as he's able, but it's going to be a really sad day.

I'm a hockey fan but not an Islanders fan.

 

I have been watching 24/7 by HBO because it's one of the best produced shows on TV.

Leading the league in scoring. Has the team 14 points ahead of any other team in their division. Probably going to win a few more trophies.

it must be nice to have a player that can't be checked without the other player getting a 500 game suspension. what's that like?

He's been checked plenty. You just have to do it legally. The Penguins are one of the most penalized teams in the game. Stop.

The Pens have had 140 powerplay opportunities. Good for 6th in the league. Yes they get calls, but other teams do too.

Friend was sending me pictures from the winter classic family skate around earlier to rub my sh*tty new years in my face and I just looked up the Islanders attendance figures, that game tomorrow is going to match about half of our total for the entire year. The Brooklyn move can't come soon enough

Very true, but that place is like a 3rd world arena and so hard to get to if you're off the Island. John Tavares has already experienced what is like to play for a loser, he'd probably go another direction if he wanted to try the NFL, lol

true. I haven't been to a game since 2006. it's 1 1/2-2 hours + bridge tolls, so it's not like I can just go after work. it'll still take me forever to get to brooklyn, but at least I can do it by train.

nah, Johnny'd be a franchise QB. he's make the Jets good. ;)

How bad you expecting Vanek to get hurt at the Olympics so we get nothing back?

I'm surprised his plane didn't crash on the way there, honestly. I'm sure he'll lose a limb in a terrorist attack or something.
