Reports- Thoughts And Prayers For Mike Bossy

from Michael Stephens of The Hockey News,

Some terrible news regarding a hockey legend.

On Sunday evening, multiple reports surfaced to indicate that NHL Hall of Famer and former New York Islanders legend, Mike Bossy has opted to enter palliative care during his fight with lung cancer.

According to the reports, Bossy's condition has unfortunately worsened in recent months, and, rather than endure the physical rigors of further aggressive treatment, the 65-year-old has decided to return home and enjoy his remaining time surrounded by his family.

Lou Lamoriello On His Team

from Andrew Gross of Newsday,

Lou Lamoriello still believes in his core players and in coach Barry Trotz and insisted he has not made up his mind yet on whether he wants to be a buyer or a seller heading into the NHL trade deadline on March 21.

But the Islanders president and general manager is not willing to "sugarcoat" the disappointment of his team’s performance so far.

"To answer a lot of things that transpired, whether it’s giving up late goals or slow starts or [being] different teams during the same game or periods, those are questions that certainly are fair questions and questions that certainly I wish I had answers for you at this point," Lamoriello said Tuesday during a sitdown with traveling media. "But I don’t and, really, you cannot dwell on it. You have to try to not think that [the issues] are going to go away by themselves.

"I have a real strong belief in this core, there’s no question of that. But you have to have performance, without question. We’ve had some players this year have some slow starts in areas they have to be proficient in. We’ve got scorers who are supposed to score. We’ve got other people who are supposed to play different roles. We haven’t had that on a consistent basis. It’s obvious and I’m not going to sugarcoat it and for us to be successful, that’s how we’re built."

Moving Forward With The New York Islanders

from Neil Best of Newsday,

But what really matters over these last 43 games — forty-three! — is team president/general manager/enigmatic-but-historically-brilliant hockey guru Lou Lamoriello assessing what he has and what he needs moving forward.

That includes determining whether the window is closing on a team loaded with key players on the wrong side of 30 or whether with a few well-placed tweaks it can get back to normal in a normal season come 2022-23.

This will be a tricky process as the March 21 trade deadline approaches.

Are the Islanders merely victims of what has been a uniquely messed-up, start-and-stop season, an anomaly that can be shrugged off come October?

Or are they what they looked like against Seattle: Old, slow and lacking scoring punch?...

I expect the Islanders will play well down the stretch because they have talent, experience, character and good coaching but that in the end, they will fall short — a huge disappointment for their fans and themselves.

The question is what they need to be better over the next year or two before a complete generational overhaul is necessary. It does not take Lamoriello or Barry Trotz to figure this out. The rest of us can see it, too.

They need a dynamic scorer or two, especially someone special for Mathew Barzal to pass to after he is through making opposing defenders dizzy by skating circles around them.

Talking With Lou Lamoriello

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

...I spoke with veteran GM Lou Lamoriello on Wednesday afternoon about this difficult-to-fathom season.

For starters, I asked him about his team’s COVID-19 outbreak from earlier this season, and now COVID-19 hitting again, and the idea of how even for players who have returned, you get the sense it has had an impact on their performance and set some of them back.

“We’re in a performance-driven, results-driven business. We all know that,” Lamoriello said. “Whenever you get some external circumstances that you really don’t have control of, they have an effect. But in saying that, you have to get beyond that. You have to accept it. Whether you understand it or not, it doesn’t matter. You have to accept it.

“And you have to take the hand that you’re dealt with at given times and you have to maximize it. You can’t feel sorry for yourself. You can’t ‘woe is me’ under any set of circumstances. You’ve got to deal with it, and you’ve got to get the best results you possibly can.”

For those who have been around Lamoriello over the years, “woe is me” has never been part of his repertoire.

But let’s consider a 13-game road trip to start the season while waiting on UBS Arena to open, key injuries, plus the COVID-19 outbreak.

Losing Streak Hits Nine For The New York Islanders

from Mike G. Morreale of NHL.com,

Erik Karlsson scored 39 seconds into overtime for the San Jose Sharks, who extended the New York Islanders' skid to nine games in a 2-1 win at UBS Arena in Elmont, N.Y., on Thursday.

The Islanders had not played since Nov. 26 after having two games postponed as the result of multiple players in NHL COVID-19 protocol. It was the first time they got a point since Nov. 6 following eight straight regulation losses.

"I think tonight was a good indication we're headed in the right direction," New York captain Anders Lee said. "I think at times when we got [penalized], and I think it killed a little bit of our momentum, but our penalty killers got it right back and had a really strong game. We've just got to find a way to get that extra point at the end there."
