Questions About The Islanders Answered

from Larry Brooks’ Slap Shots at the NY Post, With multiple rumors relating to the franchise’s status circulating across various websites that also claimed no one from the league had denied such allegations, The Post posed a three-part question to Daly via e-mail in which we asked:

* Whether the NHL is in any shape or form involved with Islanders’ ownership/financial/hockey decisions as it was at the start of the Phoenix scenario;

* Whether Wang has “given back” the Islanders to the NHL;

* Whether the NHL has advanced or loaned any money to the Islanders?

“No, no and no,” Daly responded.

Morning Line

Talk among NHL insiders is that the Islanders are now in deep financial trouble. Some are worried Wang may be the next NHL owner to toss the keys to the franchise to Bettman and say he is finished paying for losses in excess of $20-million (U.S) every year.

NHL Network Will Broadcast Pre-Game Tonight From Pittsburgh

NHL Network U.S. will take to the airwaves early for tonight’s match-up between the Penguins and New York Islanders in order to broadcast a special pre-game ceremony planned to commemorate the final regular-season game played at Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh.

Mellon Arena, often nicknamed the ‘Igloo’, will host its 1,667th regular season game tonight.  The Penguins will have over 50 alumni players, coaches and management in the building for this special ceremony.  The ceremony, scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m., will be followed by the puck drop at 7:30 p.m. ET—both the ceremony and game will be broadcast in HD.

Biron Would Be A Good Fit In Montreal

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette at Faceoff.com,

If the Canadiens decide to shed one of their young goaltenders during the offseason, there’s a veteran goaltender who just might jump at the idea of serving as a backup/mentor to whichever goaltender remains with the team.

We’re talking about the Islanders’ Marty Biron, who is making the most of a discouraging season with a strong finish. He is 7-1-2 in his last nine starts after posting a 4-3 shootout win over the Canadiens last night.

There’s a certain amount of self-interest when media folks talk about having Biron in your home city. That’s because the 32-year-old native of Lac St. Charles is one of the best interviews in the league in either of Canada’s official languages.

Watching In 3D

from Christopher Botto of NHL Fanhouse,

It looked good. It looked really, really good.

“I think it’s amazing,” said legendary Rangers and Oilers captain Mark Messier, now an executive with Manhattan’s hockey team. “To me, it’s another breakthrough in how hockey can be presented.”

“It looks spectacular,” said Islanders owner Charles Wang, who watched his team give up three early goals in three dimensions in a 5-0 loss to the rival Rangers. “Hockey stands to benefit from the technology ... maybe more than any sport.”

Oh, there were some mild complaints that there wasn’t a “wow” factor, that the 3D telecast crew didn’t show off enough, instead opting to make sure the 2,000 ticketholders, VIPs (Chloe Sevigny!) and guests saw the puck at all times. Other than an opening segment in which announcers Dave Maloney and Joe Micheletti appeared to reach through the screen with hockey sticks, the show was gimmick-free.

from Dave Lozo of NHL.com,

The broadcast of Wednesday’s game between the Rangers and Islanders at Madison Square Garden was aired by MSG Network in 3D, the first time a hockey game has ever been shown in that format.

Everyone from players to announcers were jumping off the television screen before and during the game. When the Rangers took the ice, it was as if they were jumping onto the ice and into your living room.

DiPietro Remains Confident

from Dan Martin of the NY Post,

Neither Rick DiPietro nor anyone else with the Islanders is ready to say that DiPietro has played his last game of the season, but with the goalie still not permitted on the ice because of swelling in his surgically repaired right knee, the odds of him suiting up by April 11 seem remote.

But even if he winds up playing just eight games this year, DiPietro considers it a success.

“This isn’t a wasted year,’’ DiPietro said while the rest of the Isles prepared to play the Rangers at the Garden tonight. “I proved I could come back from a major surgery and play in the NHL and win hockey games. That was the main focus of this year. Does it [stink] that I haven’t been able to go out and play every single game, every single night, when we’re in the middle of the playoff [run]? Yeah.”

DiPietro has not played since Feb. 6 and he has been sidelined since first experiencing the swelling on March 1 after returning from the Olympic break.

Though questions of his durability persist—and no doubt will continue to do so into next year—DiPietro said he remains confident.
