I haven't been able to watch hockey in so long

What's been going on with it?
Did they ever get ESPN to put their games back on or what?

He played poorly again but you know this guy is good. It should have been obvious enough after last game that DP needs to sit one out and get a breather. This is a Nolan blind spot.

he def needs a rest. I would have rested him for atlanta if anything. Perfect game in between the penguins and flyers

Jeff Tambellini is Tops in both the power play and short handed goals in the AHL, but Nolan just refuses to even given him a chance, Besides the fact, he has the hardest shot on the islanders, and amazing wrist shot, the islanders power play should be last in the league, just becuase of Gerald Gallant, maybe the puck in the head will knock some sense in to him.

WOW, sixty-something games into the season Katie, Nolan and two semi-retired golfers (Berard and Guerin) came up with something that can be as important as invention of the wheel or discovering America - "Simplify PP." WOW!!!
WTF the above mentioned semi-retired golfers and the Coacheees were doing all year????
