Loyalty

Loyalty is rare. I believe I have the loyalty character. Here is my take on being loyal to sports teams.

“I got, I got, I got, I got Loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA” said Kendrick Lamar. Now, I know the first thing you’ll ask me, why royalty, that’s just part of the lyrics, so it’s in there. The loyalty part is what I’m here to talk about in this blog.

We’re Baaaaaaaccckk

The date was December 10th 2005. The New York Islanders faced the Edmonton Oilers in what was a meaningless game in the grand scheme of things outside of the fact that it was former Isles captain Michael Peca’s first game back at the coliseum after he was traded during the offseason. For myself though, this game would unknowingly change my life. It was my first islander game, Rick Dipietro made 27 saves, Trent Hunter scored the game winning goal in the shootout and the Isles won 3-2. Since then the Islanders have been a huge part of my life and today they officially return to Nassau County, where they belong. Continue reading “We’re Baaaaaaaccckk”

I said, HEY Josh Bailey!

Josh Bailey was drafted with the 9th pick in the 2008 NHL entry draft. Crazy to think that this coming June, it will be 10 years since that moment. Looking back to that time, it wasn’t exactly an ideal situation. The islanders had the 5th overall pick going into that draft. They would trade that to the Leafs and swipe first round picks. The isles would move back to the 7th pick which was then moved to Nashville and they would end up picking Bailey with the 9th overall pick. Continue reading “I said, HEY Josh Bailey!”

All in?

The 2016-2017 season was one filled with high hopes and empty results for the New York Islanders. After winning their first playoff series in 23 years, expectations were high for the team to take the next step and seriously compete in the eastern conference. There was significant turnover in the roster as fan favorites Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Matt Martin leaving for greener pastures(green being the operative word). They were set to be replaced by Veterans Andrew Ladd, Jason Chimera, PA Parenteau and youngsters Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier. The early struggles of Ladd and Chimera as questionable coaching and management decisions, like carrying 3 goalies and keeping Barzal with the team for a month and only playing him twice, lead the isles to dead last in the east. On January 17th Jack Capuano was fired and replaced by Doug Weight and turned the season around. The islanders went 24-14-4 under Weight and made a run at a playoff spot, only to fall 1 point short. An unfortunate ending to a seasons filled with regrets made this offseason a very intriguing one.
