It does not matter if DP was in net...no D, stupid penalties and no offense...even in goal (DP)it still would have been this score...face it Ottawa has been a nightmare for us multiple times!

I agree, they simply dominated in every aspect of the game. There was a total collapse...

One of the islanders D-Man need to step up and take the body. Ottawa were able to skate at top speed right through the isle blue line.

They’re still right in the mix. They’re only 5 points out of 2nd place in the Eastern Conference.

We never beat Ottawa.

It's not a big deal so long as they get over it quickly and show up for the Devils game on Saturday.

Can't blame Dubie for the loss, but he did give the puck away while stick-handling it (although, we've seen DP do that before too. It happens.)

Ottawa's got a great team.

Do Comrie and Guerin need glasses?Are they that old? They have a combined total of how many games between them lifetime and neither one of them has yet learned that a puck cannot go through an opposing players skates? Simple science gents. No matter how many times you try it isn't going to work. Why is Richard Park who at times seems to be the best forward on the ice relegated to the fourth line? If half the other players showed as much hustle as he does......

FYI..you may be asking , what does someone in Las vegas know about hockey? I had Islander season tickets for 13 years from the 79/80 season up until 1993 when I moved out here (taxed out of LI)and I have had the NHL center Ice package for the past few years.

Wouldn't give up as many shorthanded goals if Satan wasn't on the point on the power play. Seems unfair to substitute him for Bergeron reasoning that Begeron is a "defensive liability". He's good offensively. I think they should cut Bergeron some slack and play him more, if for no other reason than to showcase him for a trade.

i hate the rangers but the one thing that they do well is getting their team back into the game. when the rangers go down 2-0 or 3-0, rangers agitate and drop their gloves to get their team going.. the islanders on the other hand just don't seem to care. usually when a team is losing a lot of games, they did pissed off and play with edge. the isles say they don't like losing but their play doesn't show that at all.

the defense last night was horrible. I think Berad should go. I liked him at first but he has just made too many mistakes. I say they bring up drew fata for a game. Guys in bridgeport want a spot on the islander roster so they'll do whatever it takes to get playing time.

i think ted nolan should set a message with his guys. If the lazy veterans aren't going to work, bring up bootland, walter, tambellini and other guys. send them a message. if the current islanders aren't going to give it their all every game, they're wasting a spot on the team. besides, i'd rather watch a group of hard-working, checking rookies lose than a bunch of lazy veterans.

comrie needs to shoot the puck and by shooting, i do not mean sliding it. One good game for comrie out of 15 doesn't cut it in the nhl.

bergy and park need more playing time. they're the only islanders who give it their all every shift. props to them. Comeuo has also impressed me.

ugh. we need trades and help.

I can't tolerate when the Isles play Ottawa anymore. Forget the fact that we have beaten them maybe once in the last 5 years, but the sight of Spezza's dominance kills me. What happened to the guy we got for the pick Ottawa used on Spezza?? Oh yeah, we bought out his contract and gave away a franchise player for very little.

The Power play, I heard, is set and run by a Columbus blue jacket reject by the name of Gallant. Hopefully Nolan will eventually get rid of him, b4 somethnig else happened.

Since I haven't seen any posts by Ranger fans I will add my 2 cents. Don't get down on your team because they get killed by Ottawa. Look at their record, they beat mostly everyone!! I think the Rangers have lost to them 3 times already this year. On the other hand, I give Nolan some respect because he is getting a lot from a team with limited talent. He needs to make some moves, bring up some young guys and give the future a real chance to become the future. I think he will get more from hungry young players than he's getting from some of the veterans. There's plenty of 20-23 year old players on the Rangers that over time will develope into solid "team" if given the chance. And one last thing, I really hate the Islanders.:)

Dubie let us down. So did Comrie, Park and the rest of the team. I am so sad. I trusted the Islanders. But wait, tomorrow night is the eleven millionth Al Arbour night at the Mausoleum. Whopeeee!! My team is losing, yet I am happy again.

Wayne, I for one have deep respect for your knowledge of the game of hockey. So when you say, the Islanders really stink, I must defer to you and wholeheartedly agree!

I love the sound the puck makes when it hits the goal netting behind DP and Dubie. I get to hear it quite a bit! How good for me!

I never said the Isles stink, although some of their players may carry a heavy odor due to age or old baggage. the stink sure ain't from working up a sweat. Maybe some of the players need laser surgery on their eyes to go along with their suppossed laser shots. You'll never hear "pass the puck" on this team because it will end up on an opposing players stick or skates. to Islander 505.. thanks for the invite but that's too cold for me. I've gotten whimpy and can't take the cold anymore...just like some "active" players. If anyone has been watching the old Islander cup series on the NHL network...whenever the Isles scored (remember them doing that?),and you heard a bell clanging, that was me. Half an oxy tank with a hammer. I sat 4 rows behind Eddie and Jiggs and it used to annoy the hell out of them.

You must be new here so let me give you some advice; ignore Bellmore.

He's an idiot.
