New York Islanders - Your #Isles40th favorite moments

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders
My #isles40th memory is probably the most recent. It took place this past off season at the Islanders event at Adventureland. I have been a lifelong Islanders fan. I was at every playoff game vs the Maple Leafs that year (2002). To see my 6 year old son absorb my passion almost thru osmosis is funny. He watches all the games. He knows every players #. I remember as a kid waiting in long lines at the area malls to meet my favorites like Nystrom & Gillies. I never got everybody. This Islander event at Adventureland was AWESOME. He met everybody from the team, the coaching staff, the Ice Girls and even the owner himself. Thanks for remembering that the word fanatic starts with fan.
