The quote about it being easy to get up to play Chicago and not Calgary hit too close to home with the way our season's gone.

I'm surprised how focused the Islanders look, for a change.

 

There was a real buzz in the Nassau Coliseum at the end of the game last night. Those fans are dying to make the playoffs

Its going to be a zoo in the Coliseum on Saturday. Rags Isles, cheapest pair of tickets going for $150, rabid Islander fans are back. Pandemonium will ensue Saturday!

Might get destroyed for saying this but...

Good for the Islanders. Only a handful of their fans that I've come across, truly suck.

Absolutely. Those fans deserve some success after being dragged in the mud again and again. Truly pathetic ownership and management to be so bad for so long. It's such a shame. People made/make fun of that building for being barely half full each night, but I am always amazed that a team that bad for so long and playing in a building so disgusting averages that many people. I couldn't do it if I was an Islanders fan. So good on them.

I love the sight lines in that building though, I try to go there once a year, its always a nice trip.

I've set it before, but Wang gets a lot more heat than he deserves.  He's lost a ton of his own money on the team, and initially offered to build a new arena entirely with private money.  He could have easily waited out the lease and sold to someone who would have relocated the team, but chose not to.  He's also not really a tightwad, despite his reputation.  His GMs have been so bad with personnel that there isn't really anyone that was worth throwing a ton of money at.

 

Sure, his GM picks have been either disastrous (Milbury) or shaky at best (Snow).  But there are plenty of owners that have struck out badly on GMs.  Most teams aren't lucky enough to have guys like Lou or Ken Holland fall into their laps.

I think Snow's done a lot with his pro scouting I guess and he's been a wizard with waiver pickups and random finds (Grabner not withstanding-the dumb Panthers waived him right after he was a big part of the Luongo trade I think) but the stuff with Niederreiter was embarrassing and guys like Josh Bailey probably got rushed. How he got Vishovsky and Nabokov to resign though's a miracle. Tavares obviously is the glue and then surrounded pretty much by waivers, so I think Wang should get minimal credit for this

Pretty much unless you believe Ottawa's losing almost every game the rest of the season.  And magically we go from losing every single game to actually (gasp) winning a few.

I would love for them to make it far. Imagine a local hockey rivalry in 2015, with the Isles playing in Brooklyn, where the Islanders and Devils both have more bragging rights than the Rangers.

I hate to say it, but Lundqvist's play in OT yesterday was damn impressive.  You can tell he really wants the playoffs.
