Nassau Coliseum Is Once Again The Home Of The New York Islanders

Filed in: NHL Teams, New York Islanders, | KK Hockey | Permalink

Back To Long Island

from Randi F. Marshall of Newsday.

Multiple sources told The Point on Friday that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is expected to head to Nassau Coliseum Saturday afternoon before the New York Islanders’ 1 p.m. home game against the Boston Bruins.

But he won’t be there just to watch a hockey game.

Instead, Cuomo is expected to come to the arena to announce before the game that the Islanders will play any playoff games this year and next year, along with their entire home schedule for the 2020-2021 season, at the Coliseum.

Next season is expected to be the Islanders’ last before they head to Belmont Park, where a new arena is under construction.

New Jersey Devils Trade Andy Greene To The New York Islanders

via NJD press release,

The New Jersey Devils today traded defenseman Andy Greene to the New York Islanders, in exchange for New York's second-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft and defenseman David Quenneville. New Jersey now has seven picks in the 2021 NHL Draft: the club's own selections in rounds one, three, four, five and six;  in addition to New York's second-round pick and Arizona's third-round selection (conditional).

Quenneville, 21, will report to New Jersey's AHL affiliate in Binghamton.

Greene, 37, was signed as a free agent by New Jersey out of Miami University (Ohio). In 14 seasons with New Jersey, he has appeared in 923 games scoring 49 goals and 197 assists for 246 points while registering 259 penalty minutes. Greene's games-played total ranks seventh in franchise history. He was named the team's eleventh captain on October 8, 2015. Greene is due to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

"Andy has been a bedrock for the Devils franchise for the past 14 years and an exceptional leader in my time here," said Devils Executive Vice President/Interim General Manager Tom Fitzgerald. "I constantly communicated with Andy throughout this process to make sure he was comfortable with the decision, as it was not one I took lightly. We thank him for all that he's done on and off the ice for the organization, and wish him, his wife, Rachel, and sons, Colton and Maddox all the best."

The New York Islanders May Need To Seek Help Via A Trade

from TSN,

With injuries piling up for the New York Islanders, Arthur Staple of The Athletic believes general manager Lou Lamoriello will have a higher sense of urgency to make a move before Feb. 24.

Casey Cizikas became the latest Islander to join the injured this week when he was ruled out for three-to-four weeks after suffering a cut on his leg from a skate. The Isles were already without fellow penalty-killer Cal Clutterbuck and defenceman Adam Pelech and Staple believes the team should look to acquire a defensive-minded forward to help head coach Barry Trotz fill the void.

Staple points to Ottawa Senators pending UFA Jean-Gabriel Pageau as a potential option, but isn't sure whether the Islanders are willing to part with a first-round pick to acquire him. He adds that Anaheim Ducks centre Derek Grant could be a cheaper option for the Islanders, along with New Jersey Devils veteran Travis Zajac, Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis or Detroit Red Wings centre Luke Glendening.

Playoffs Not A Given For The New York Islanders

from Neil Best of Newsday,

Thanks for the memories from that 17-game point streak, Islanders. It was big fun . . . when was that again? Oh, right, last autumn.

That is ancient history now, with exactly two months left between their next game and their last regular-season game on April 4 — if not their last game, period, with a playoff berth far from a certainty.

The good news is this should be an entertaining ride, as evidenced by Saturday’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Canucks at Barclays Center, which allowed the Islanders to cling to third place in the Metropolitan Division thanks to a late, point-salvaging goal.

The scary news for the team and its fans is that this is not going to be easy, not with a tightly packed posse of Eastern Conference contenders on the Islanders’ heels.

While the coach and players said many positive things about their effort against the Pacific Division leaders after having been off since Jan. 21, they are going to need many more positive things to happen in the coming weeks.
