Islanders Bits: Time to power up; Hickey excited; Working in Aucoin

New Isle, old Isle. - Jeff Gross

Tis the season. The season for getting this crazy machine off and running.

Like all teams, the New York Islanders are working on the fly to get a normal training camp -- and several new, unfamiliar bodies -- into a team structure within just one week.

In a nice sign, new acquisition Keith Aucoin was splitting duties with Marty Reasoner at 4C this morning, per Newsday's Arthur Staple and the team twitter. But what if they added a different center who's available at waiver wire prices?
