The season is unfortunately over.
Sixteen teams get to continue their dance card, until one is left with the chalice and the memories.
For us Islander fans, we lament until September when camp opens in China. However, John and I, the “EyesonIsles.com” folks, will still be writing and talking Islander puck.
John and I, for the next few weeks, will look at each player that spent some time with the team this year (including the ones that have been traded or sent down), and give the player a grade.
From there – we will look at the draft, and what can be expected, when the Isles step to the podium at the 5 slot. Then – we will examine July 1, and the players that may or may not be available to the Isles, as what we would like to see added or subtracted from the team.
It will be an interesting off-season; one that can make this team make strides to the next echelon. EyesOnIsles.com will be there to look at the changes, and let you know our thoughts on the subject.
Have a great day, and enjoy the playoffs.
OH – By the way – Here are my predictions for the First Round:
NJ – Phi – NJ in 7
Was – Mtl – Was in 5
Buf – Bos – Buf in 7
Pit – Ott – Pit in 5
SJ – Col – SJ in 6
Chi – Nas – Chi in 6
Van – LA – Van in 5
Phx – Det – Det in 7
Let’s see how I do…. Gary
