Islanders Bits: August is for Ice Girls...3rd Jersey News?

Update: Icethetics, which tends to get these things early, says that the Islanders new thirds are as rumored ... black. Further discussion/grieving in this FanShot.

There's not a whole lot going on in hockey, but you can check the archives here for on-going threads as well as the FanPosts and FanShots (while, ahem, keeping a lid on the politics).

  • One thing getting coverage lately: Ice Girls! They tried out, and they found their team for 2011-12. Congratulations to those who made it; I promise not to run photos (too much) because I'm frankly not sure how old you are.
  • As discussed in this FanShot, CBS has a post about which former "dynasty" -- the Islanders or Oilers [sic] -- will return to glory first. Aside from the fact the Oilers only managed a dynasty interruptus, it's a fun topic.
  • 30 in 30: This is from late last week, but nhl.com's Islanders preview is still worth probing.

We'll be back with more by mid-day, so don't go thinking about the Mets too long or anything.
