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.
Through three games the New York Islanders have gotten out to a bit of a slow start. It doesn’t get any easier for them tonight as the San Jose Sharks who represented the Western Conference in the Stanley Cup Final come to town.
“I just would like to have some more success,’’ Tavares said Monday at Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow. “You just want to take advantage of all of these years and the group of guys we have. Being 26 now, I still got a lot of good years ahead of me, I believe, and want to keep finding ways to get better. But certainly, this is my eighth season and have only been to the second round once [last season]. It’s hard to get there, so you want to take advantage of that.’’

Is that a frustrated John Tavares? It’s obvious that it has been a struggle since his arrival reaching the second round of that playoffs. It only happened for the first time last year, the first time in 23 years.
Having a team that was in the cup final last year has to bring up the thoughts of if he will ever get there. I’m not speculating that Tavares will run out of town in two years, I don’t think that’s the case but maybe it’s a mix of not getting any calls so far this year and dealing with the endless carousal of linemates.
I understand the frustration, I just hope it doesn’t become a distraction. Tavares is all about taking care of business on the ice, I would be surprised if this becomes a thing off the ice.

Howie Rose spent 21 years calling games for the Islanders. It was nice of him to send a personal message to the fans who all really liked and respected him. He even gave a shout out to Brendan Burke the new Islanders broadcaster.
P.A. has now scored a goal for all the of the New York Metropolitan teams. Parenteau at least seems to see the business side of things as he has stepped away from his previous salty take.
