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.

Mark Streit an All Star

Defenseman Mark Streit, the PP quarterback who's done that and more for the Isles, has made the All Star Eastern Conference roster as a reserve, and is going back to Montreal for the game.

Streit leads all NHL defensemen with 33 points, as well as leading the team, and has tied a career-high this season with seven PP goals. He also regularly leads the Isles in ice time, and has developed his defensive game quite a bit more since signing with the Isles in the summer. He has become the first Swiss player to go to the All Star Game.

Congratulations Mark! It's an honor well-deserved.
