A look around the web at the most recent New York Islanders news. Make Eyes On Isles your go to website for all things Islanders.

The highly anticipated town hall meeting went well last night. John Ledecky spoke with season ticket holders about his plan and goals for the Islanders. He said all the right things, but he seems genuine about it.

Lighthouse Hockey had a good recap of the event. If you thought the quotes from the media luncheon were good just wait until you hear some of the ones from last night.

"“What? What was one of the best moments in Islanders history last year? When Tavares scored in double-overtime and blew the roof off this place, the scoreboard almost became centered. He’s not going to be a free agent.”"

"“In a cap world, a world where every team can spend to the cap, what makes the difference in attracting players here? The environment, the passion of the fans.”"

"“We’re looking to kick the Rangers’ ass.”"

Pretty good quotes from the man himself. He mentioned everything Islanders fans want to hear, re-signing Tavares, winning a cup, and kicking the Rangers ass along the way. He’s got a passion that a lot of fans should be happy with.
