Subscribe today!New York IslandersOverall: 84 Title track: 61 Ownership: 110 Coaching:?108 Players: 63 Fan relations: 62 Affordability: 99 Stadium experience: 118 Bang for the buck:?19 Change from last year: -11The Islanders bolted Nassau Coliseum, played their first season in Brooklyn and posted their first playoff series victory in 23 years. But the loyal fans who made the commute on the Long Island Rail Road were far from pleased with the Barclays Center and the way ownership handled the transition, dragging down the overall ranking 11 points to 84th.Whats goodBuilding around fan favorite John Tavares, the Islanders have had back-to-back 100-point seasons for the first time since winning the Stanley Cup in 1981 and 1982. Once-maligned GM Garth Snow has put together a Stanley Cup contender, and the No. 61 rank in title track represents a 32-point leap from two years ago. Coach Jack Capuano seems to get little love (108th ranking), which is a little surprising since he has lasted five consecutive seasons behind the bench, the first time that has happened since the legendary Al Arbour did it from 1990-1994. The Islanders average ticket price of $49.21 was almost $13 below the league average, which is even more impressive given the cost of living in New York City. Throw in a winning team, and you get a 13-point jump in Bang for the Buck to 19th overall.Whats badThe Islanders ranked 28th in NHL attendance last season with a 13,626 average, nearly 2,000 less than their final campaign at Nassau Coliseum. Fans have complained about the dim lighting and the numerous obstructed seats at the Barclays Center. Brett Yormark, the CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, didnt help things when he suggested in an interview that those with blocked sightlines can watch the game on your mobile device. The game is on the scoreboard. Nassau Coliseum routinely ranked at or near the bottom of our standings in stadium experience, and Barclays Center has carried on the tradition with the worst rating among NHL teams. And a triple-digit ranking in ownership was the fans goodbye present to Charles Wang, who officially handed the reins to Jon Ledecky (uncle of Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky) and college roommate Scott Malkin.Whats newDespite the winning streaks, fans still arent convinced about this teams roster, which is down 23 spots from last year. But look no further than Ledecky, who promised at an introductory news conference that he will make the Islanders a world-class organization. And next year it might be stadium experience on the rise: There already are rumblings that the club could leave the Barclays Center after three seasons by exercising an opt-out clause. Newsday reported over the summer that Ledecky and Malkin have had talks about possibly moving the team to a new arena near Citi Field or Belmont Park. Wherever they skate, if the winning continues, the Islanders are a team that is worth the trip.Next: New York Rangers?| Full rankings Nike Air Max Womens Sale Orange .

The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney says the health of the Bulldogs top running backs could help decide who opens the season as the starting quarterback.Star tailback Nick Chubb ran with the first-team offense on Saturday as he continues his recovery from left knee surgery midway through the 2015 season. So far, Chubb has been practicing with no restrictions, but Georgia has not been tackling to the ground.Sony Michel, who replaced Chubb as the starter, is recovering from a broken left forearm he suffered in an offseason ATV accident. He is wearing a cast on the forearm and has not been cleared for contact.Among the options at tailback are freshmen Elijah Holyfield, Brian Herrien and Tae Crowder and senior Brendan Douglas.At quarterback, returning starter Greyson Lambert has been sharing snaps with freshman Jacob Eason and junior Brice Ramsey. Ramsey also is competing at punter.Georgia coaches might be less inclined to give Eason his first start in Georgias opener against North Carolina on Sept. 3 in Atlantas Georgia Dome if Chubb and Michel are not cleared to play.I think youd be a fool if you didnt consider that a little bit early on, Chaney said Saturday.Chaney said first-year coach Kirby Smart is very aware of that and sensitive to those issues. Chaney added that ultimately he wants the best quarterback on the field.Inevitably it will be decided on which one of those boys can move the team down the field and put up points, Chaney said in his first news conference at Georgia.Smart said he has given the three quarterbacks equal opportunities to win the starting job. The three have traded days with the first-team offense. Saturday was Easons turn as Georgia continues to install Chaneys offense.I cant tell you anybody stood out more than anybody else riight now, Smart said. Nike Air Max Womens Sale Blue. . Its too early. Theyre still in the installation process which sometimes can be overwhelming.Chaney has led offenses for 30 years at such schools as Arkansas, Tennessee, Purdue and Cal State-Fullerton. He said this is the first time hes had three quarterbacks he would have confidence to start.Its a big deal for me, Chaney said. Ive not had three guys who can go out and play.The depth is nice, but Chaneys impatience to find a starter showed on Friday when he said I got a little upset with them.I told them one of them needs to start emerging a little bit here, he said. Show a little bit more. ... The competition is hot and its alive ... and its been fun to watch.A few hundred fans accepted Smarts invitation to attend an open practice at Sanford Stadium held before the annual fan day schedule.It was a rare opportunity for fans and media to watch a full practice.Eason drew a big cheer when he connected with freshman Tyler Simmons on a long touchdown pass.Game notes Smart doesnt agree with the decision of his former boss, Alabama coach Nick Saban, to block the attempt of Alabama graduate student Maurice Smith, a defensive back, to transfer to Georgia. Saban blocked his transfer to SEC schools. Because Smith is a potential recruit, Smart wouldnt comment on the player. Asked about the rule, Smart said he would support a Georgia player who had graduated and wanted to transfer to another graduate school. Asked if that included another SEC school, Smart said Absolutely. ... DT John Atkins was held out with a knee injury.
