Unless you played for the New York Islanders or were a fan of the team, you despised Billy Smith. He was mean and ornery to say the least, and wielded his goalie stick like some sort of wild hatchet man. No opposing player was safe around Smith’s goal crease. Whether it was a butt end

We are now well over the halfway point in the 2017-18 New York Islanders season. Through the first 47 games there have been some high points, but plenty of lows.

When the Islanders announced last week that they were demoting Josh Ho-Sang to their AHL-affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Isles fans took to social media (especially Twitter) to express their vehement opposition to the move.  A 21-game stint last season provided glimpses of Ho-Sang’s game-breaking and play-making ability.
