Fisher's Favs 5/14/13

Welcome to this edition of Fisher's Favs. I am very proud of our team, and hope that you are also. Reaching the post season for the first time in 6 years showed how much our team has improved, and it was amazing to hear Nassau Coliseum rocking the turnpike again. I have a renewed hope and I am looking forward to next season, in a way that I haven't in quite a while. That being said, the season is over but there are still awards and draft parties and such to enjoy in the meantime. Congrats to our NY Islanders who are once again gaining well deserved respect.

Rob McGowan

"John Tavares Nominated for Hart Trophy" Rob discusses our nominee John Tavares and takes a look at his competition. My thoughts GO JT!! 

Dee Karl/Hockey Buzz

"Letting It All Sink In" Dee gives us her heartfelt thoughts on the end of the Isles playoff run as only Dee can; as a fan who truly loves this team.

Rob McGowan

"The Islanders Restore Pride Despite Being Eliminated" Rob takes an indepth look at the NY Islanders and how far they have come. This is a great read full of player remarks and the overall feelings of a team eliminated. 

David Hanssen/Lighthouse Hocke

"Islanders 2012-2013 Reflections: Not Disappointed" Another great post season read as David looks at the season through the eyes of a true Islander fan, and wonders how some fans are upset. I don't get that either David, they have surely come a long way.

That's a wrap folks!! It is painful to read the players comments and such, but when you do, you feel the pride of this team. They are a family of brothers; They believe that and so should we. As always:

Let's Go Islanders!! Onward boys to next season!!
