New York Islanders History

Law & Owners Special Islanders Unit: John Pickett

Part Six of the series. John O. Pickett was once the Islanders' hero, helping a financially disorganized team into its dynasty era. But after years of neglect & with decisions that still affect it today, he may be among the team's greatest villains.

Law & Owners Sp. Isles Unit: Dolan & Steinbrenner

Part Five of the series. Cablevision founder Charles Dolan and Yankees owner George Steinbrenner both kicked the tires on the Islanders at different points in the franchise's life. While neither ever owned the team, the What-Ifs are intriguing.

DiPietro: The Rise, The Fall, The End?

Often the butt of jokes stemming from conditions beyond his control, Rick DiPietro is in Bridgeport now. If we never see him in an Islanders uniform again, we can recall the reality of why he rose, why he fell, and why he'll never be forgotten.

Okposo's 100th: Another homegrown Isles milestone

It's been a long time, but the Islanders are finally drafting and keeping talent again.

Law & Owners SIU: Gluckstern & Milstein

Part Four of the series. Riding in following the criminal Spano Affair, Steven Gluckstern & the Milstein brothers, Howard & Edward, painted themselves as the Islanders' heroes. Instead, they turned out to be full of hot air and, possibly, bacon.

A look back at the 2010 New York Islanders training camp reminds us how opportunity and chance play a huge part in who makes the NHL, and who ends up having to take their career to Europe.

Law & Owners Special Islanders Unit: Roy Boe

Part three in the series. Roy Boe, the Islanders' first owner, unknowingly established their long standing team tradition of being hard up for cash. Boe's mounting debts with the Islanders and Nets caused him to do the unthinkable: sell Dr. J.

Law & Owners Special Isles Unit: Walsh & Greenwood

Part two of the series. Stephen Walsh & Paul Greenwood were minority owners of the Islanders for about four years. Today, they face much more time than that in prison for bilking retirement funds & universities out of over a billion dollars.
