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.

To Disclose or Not to Disclose Injuries

Much to do is going on about the Isles resistance to disclose player injuries. If the intention is strategy I’m all for it. If your opponent knows you hurt your shoulder where do you think he is going to purposefully make contact with your body? Doubt it would be your hip. From what I’ve read and heard there seems to be the attitude, by some, that they have a right to know. No you don’t. Anything revealed that would create player vulnerability doesn’t belong out in the public. Goalie hurt his left knee? Shoot em’ down low. It would be just plain silly to give an opponent this kind of advantage, an advantage they would be silly not to capitalize on.
