Good job islanders

Tough to run into  a team like the lightning who are really REALLY talented.  Perhaps even generationally talented.  In other years I think this Islanders team would sail through to a cup.  As a Rangers fan it is pretty tough to compliment the Islanders at any time but I have to tip my cap to the organization that Lou Lamoriello has assembled over there.

Next year it will be back to a big "f&** you Islanders and p1ss on your graves!" but for now at least well played and tough luck.

Islanders have proven once again that coaching and a system are more important in hockey then a superstar player....Trotz and Lou have turned out to be far more important then Tavares so I expect them to be cup contenders as long as those two are there.

Rangers/Islanders = Great Rivalry back in the day. Unfortunately Islander’s got the best of us for the most part back then. 

Yup.  So sad. Just 65 years old.  Here is the picture from the Fox News link.  Bossy and Gillies with teh Cup.  Both taken way too early during this season.  RIP.

Gillies was so tough and actually had good skills when he wasn’t kicking our @$$

I think it was in the 1980 playoffs, maybe the semis, Isles/Bruins, when Gillies kicked the absolute sh*t out of Terry O'Reilly in one of the Boston Garden games. I used to work with a bunch of Islander fans, and they swore that was the moment that particular team got over the hump and started their dynasty.
