New York Islanders 2013-14 Preview: What they did last summer

Because if you're changing diapers at 2:30 a.m., you might as well test yourself on whether you recall all of the New York Islanders' offseason moves.

Tune out on New York Islanders news during the offseason? A prodigal fan returning to the fold now that they're relevant again?

Oh yeah, not mentioned in the video: The Islanders named franchise superstar John Tavares their new captain. But if you aren't familiar with Tavares, then you have to do more homework than a five-minute crash course can provide.

Follow along all season at Lighthouse Hockey: We'll keep you marginally informed. Our commenters will keep you mightily entertained.
