Rewind back about two months ago and you would hear NHL analysts and fans of the league being optimistic about the 2011/12 Islanders. With a healthy DiPietro and a combo of Montoya and Nabakov (yes, that guy), the goaltending looked pretty solid to go along with a strong defense and some budding NHL stars as their forwards. At first, things looked pretty good for the Isles, until their annual decline started. This time way too early into what looked like a promising season. Giving up leads, lack of goal scoring and defensmen not performing as expected. All these factors are killers to the now 5-10-4 Isles. Now, with an injury to Nabakov and defensmen Mark Eaton, things seem to get worse day in day out. As of late, the Isles losing 6-0 to Boston, 5-0 to Pittsburgh and then blowing a two goal lead and losing to Philly, its spiraling out of control. It’s only a matter of time that the front office will turn to their 16th head coach in team history.
