More Fascinating work from Eric at NHLNumbers, he has examined an alternate method of determining the quality of competition players face, using Time on Ice. This Chart shows the time of Ice of defensemen faced while each player is on the ice, and the time of ice of forwards faced while each player is on the ice. The greater time on ice, the better a player is thought by his coaches to be. Why is this fascinating? Well, consider: The top forwards of a team will face the top defensemen, but not naturally the top forwards of an opponent (but rather the defensive forwards). The top defensive forwards of a team will face the top opposing forwards, but not the top opposing defensemen. Only two way players will face both top forwards and defensemen. In this chart, showing the Islanders in 2011-2012, we see the following: Tavares-Moulson face top defensemen and top forwards (the sign of 2 way players facing the best of the best of all worlds.) Nielsen and Grabner meanwhile face the top forwards, but not the top defensemen - because after all, they're the defensive group. The other forwards all lag behind (Though PAP fits in the middle).

So my Pop won this hat at a charity auction. It's signed by the 2011-2012 Islanders. For those of you who don't know my Pop is a die hard Rags fan and gave the hat to me. Names I made out: Calvin de Haan and PA Parenteau and that's about it. Anyone out there know any more?

Mika Zibanejad scores the game-winning goal for the Swedish team to bring Sweden its first gold in 30 years! What a nail-biter of a game. The Russian goal (Makarov) faced 57 or 58 shots while his team put up only 17. That goalie deserves a ton of credit for getting his team deep into OT before giving up a goal. On an Islander note: Sundstrom was Zibanejad's linemate for most of OT until right before the goal. I'm not necessarily a fan of the Swedish team (love the chef, though), but I was excited when they won. Fantastic hockey game.

Hey Older Isles Fans!!! During the glory years of the Isles did they hve attendance issues like they have today? The image above is from the isles website and the photo is of the Stands during the 1984 Stanley Cup playoffs Question: Were the Islanders selling out the Coliseum a lot of nights during the 80s and early 90s?

Thanksgiving Prayers for Islanders This is simply a place where we can share our Thanksgiving prayers for our beloved team. What do we have to be thankful for? What prayer requests do we have for the remainder of the season? (Let's please refrain from praying for anything too awful to happen to any of the struggling Islanders.)
