Welcome to the NYIslesScene!

A blog by a long time New York Islanders fan who stays true to the fellas wearing orange, white and blue…but thinks the Islanders organization has some shaping up to do.

Where Are the Isles?

Check out this NHL commercial. It's got great clips put together of some of hockey's greats lifting the Cup in celebration, ending with the one and only Wayne Gretzky. Pretty neat, eh?

However, from the first time I watched this promo I always wondered: Four Stanley Cups in four years, and the guys who made this clip couldn't find a single shot of Denis Potvin hoisting the Cup in triumph? Would it have been too much to ask for some representation? I think not.

I hope in the future the NHL can find it in their hearts to at least show some respect for our dynasty, even if they don't want one like it again.

Actually, upon watching it, I do see a Denis Potvin sighting around the 9 second mark. It's not him holding the cup in the air, but rather him being handed the cup, so it's a little hard to tell.

Maybe that's why I didn't catch it. Hmm. Thanks for the look.
