What's with the Islanders mastery over the Pens? Now like 5-2 in the last
seven b/n the two teams.Too bad they don't play like that against the rest
of the league. And, Oh Yeah.....The ISLES will be in the playoffs. Nice
try Flyers!!!! Maybe next year!!

                                         Later,
                                                Jon

The chances of the I-Holes being in the playoffs is null.
Even the New York Newsday, said the losers are dead.

Face it jon, your team sucks.
They are LAST!!!
All the expansion teams have better records except for Ottawa.

GO RANGERS!!!!

You know, this is why I avoid flame wars with Ranger fans.
They do a good enough job of embarrassing themselves without
any help.

For those outside the New York area, though, note that although
Newsday is the Isles' "hometown" paper, New York Newsday is a
totally separate newspaper, and staffed by city writers.  The
fact they spend more ink on the Rangers is not surprising since
it's marketed not towards the suburbs but towards city
residents.

(And, you know, as much as the Ranger fans have reason to be
pleased with the team's record so far, I wouldn't be mentioning
the word "expansion" if I were them.  Can we say "swept by the
Ducks?")  Of course, the Panthers are playing incredible this
year.  What are they, 6 points behind the Devils now?

Dear DJ,
         Thanks for the wonderful news about my team. But lets see here, When
was the last time your Rangers won on our ice? Been around 25 or so games, and
also what happened to your Rangers last year....Hmmmmm Looks like they didn't
even make the playoffs now did they. From first to worst. So when you say
that my team sucks maybe you should first think about which team "truely"
sucks. O.K Buddy. And just because you're scared about the Isles getting
into the playoffs 'cause you know they're gonna kick the Rangers' asses,
like they always do, doesn't mean they're not gonna be there. So be be
Cryin' when your team is out in the first round this year. But hey, at least
they made the playoffs this year.

                                               Later Ranger Loser,
  Isles in 5 !!!      GO ISLES!!!!
                                                                  Jon

Further, the article in Newsday burying the Isles was written by Jim Smith,
who, while being a knowledgeable hockey person, and is the main hockey
staffer with Newsday, seems to have a problem with Mr. Maloney in general.
Even early in the season, when things were not so bleak for the Isles as
they are now, he blasted Maloney for not signing Doug Brown (who went to
Pittsburgh and is having a career year) and instead going after a retread
like Keith Acton. Two or three weeks later, his article contained an apology
stating that part of the deal that the Devils gave Brown to allow him to be
a free agent included provisions not allowing him to sign with the Isles or
the Rangers.
Get your facts straight, please, Mr. Smith.

This weekend's games against Washington will show how much of a chance the
Isles have of making the playoffs. After blowing an opportunity against
Florida this past week, I think they need to take home at least three points
from the Caps before I will start to take them seriously again. Between the
return of Turgeon, playing the Caps, and playing against Hunter for the
first time since last year's playoffs; if the Isles can't key themselves up
to win these games, then they probably never will.

And they better beat Ottawa in the game between, also!
