09:59 AM ET 05.19 | Long Island is neither Brooklyn's to promise nor a particularly good idea, if you want to know the truth about the Bruce Ratner/Brett Yormark plan to schedule six Islanders games a season at a remodeled, downsized Coliseum once the club makes the move to Barclays. The concept is being sold as a romance novel, yet, as is typical in these sorts of things, the plan isn't really novel at all. It is about real estate. The Rangers/MSG already have approved the Islanders' move to Brooklyn, as was required under the NHL constitution. There is no reason at all to believe they would green-light this hopscotch back to the Island for a half-dozen games, with their approval again required by the league. Unless Ratner is going to pledge to ante up the difference in revenue between a full house in Brooklyn and one in a downsized Coliseum, it stretches credulity to believe the NHL and NHLPA would allow six games to be played in an arena with a capacity of 13,000.

He may be Quick but he's as sharp as a marble.

Any bets as to how much they'll fine Captain Serious for being a whiney little beotch after yesterday's beatdown?

One of these days I'll learn how to post videos on this site, but for now. If you copy on paste this its a video of the wild playoff game in Wilkes-Barre last night. Two fights, one involving the Pens goalie the other involving the Bruins goalie. Pens won 3 -0 and the series is going back to Providence with the Bruins up 3 games to 2.

Every coach in the league should donate for that fine as Wilson only said what half of them are afraid to say.

I always liked Doug. Too bad he hasn't dealt Jumbo and Pattie yet - he could probably get the he-male Olsens right about now (maybe if he threw Boiler in) - anything, as long as no-one previously mentioned ends up with The Jets.

The lad needs to concentrate on not letting Zetterberg undress him again.

He got dominated.

Agreed. Being Quick doesn't automatically make you smart.

He's a great goalie, but man you lost and it was fair from what I saw, so unless I missed something there has been more whining from the ones that don't seem to keep the rep afterwards..
