Coming Up It’s Rangers vs. Islanders

from Stan Fischler at the Daily Freemen,

You can bet your bottom dollar that on Tuesday night all hell will break loose in a large barn located off Hempstead Turnpike.

That barn — also known in the trade as Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum — will have two games going on simultaneously.

One will be on the Coliseum ice where the New York Rangers will challenge their archer-than-arch rivals, the New York Islanders.

The other battle will be in the stands, sports bars and assorted other venues where fans challenge their opposition counterparts in an endless “Who’s Better?” argument.

For some strange reason, I believe the fans fury should be less important than the shenanigans on the ice.

Among other things, the clubs will be battling for a high playoff berth as the NHL homestretch becomes more excruciatingly thrilling than ever.

The fans, on the other hand — or throat as the case may be — will be there to out-scream each other.

The New York Islanders May Be Quiet On Monday

from Arthur Staple of Newsday,

Monday at 3 p.m. will come and go quietly for the Islanders, who have been steadfast in their desire to move to the postseason with the same roster they began this very successful regular season.

Team sources told Newsday, as they have repeatedly over the past six weeks, that nothing has altered the plan, not even the long-term injury to Kyle Okposo and shorter-term injuries to Casey Cizikas and Mikhail Grabovski.

Here are the main reasons why the Islanders won't be active before Monday's trade deadline:

- Lack of movable assets. Garth Snow basically set the course for this trade deadline with his moves in October 2013 and October 2014. In acquiring Thomas Vanek from the Sabres early last season, Snow gave up a conditional first-round pick that ended up being this coming June's selection, plus this coming draft's second-round pick.

A Seven-Year Contract For Nick Leddy

 

added 12:00pm, via the New York Islanders.

The New York Islanders announced today that Nick Leddy has agreed to terms on a seven-year contract, signing through the 2021-22 season.

The 23-year-old defenseman has 25 points (eight goals, 17 assists) with a plus-12 rating in 61 games with the Islanders this season. The Eden Prairie, MN, native leads all Islanders defensemen in goals, ranks second in points and plus-minus rating and has appeared in every Islanders game to date.

“Nick has proven to be an elite defenseman in this league at a young age,” Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said. “He’s the type of player on the ice, in the locker room and in the community that we’re thrilled to add as a cornerstone of our defensive core.”...

“We have something special in this locker room and I’m excited to be a part of it for seven more years,” Leddy said. “From the start of my time here, the Islanders have been a first-class organization. I’m honored by their commitment to me and look forward to challenging for the Stanley Cup for years to come.”

Saturday Hockey Notes

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

- The chatter that began over the summer about Johnny Boychuk wanting to sign with his hometown Oilers this summer when the 31-year-old defenseman becomes a free agent persists even as his value to the Cup contenders on Long Island continues to grow.

As huge a get as Boychuk was for GM Garth Snow when he acquired Boychuk on the eve of the season from Boston (who chose not to use their precious cap space on him while fearful of losing the defenseman for nothing), keeping the righty will be a more challenging task…even as the Islanders appear to be in an outstanding position relative to the cap.

The number will start at $6M per.

- So, if the Jacobs ownership was 10 minutes away from firing GM Peter Chiarelli and coach Claude Julien when the Bruins were down 4-1 to the Leafs with time running down on Game 7 of the first round in 2013 before their historic rally to win it, as we were told by a man who knew the plan, then what will the fallout be if Boston misses the playoffs this time?

We’re betting that the GM will be named Cam Neely by the time of the Entry Draft.

- Hey, have you heard about the NHL renaming the Adams to COY? Not to be confused with the CYA Trophy, about to won yet again by Philadelphia’s “Mr. Snider.”
