Islanders News: Goring with de Haan on Hamonic; Vanek on Long Island; Bridgeport PTOs

Andrew MacDonald is a hidden fantasy, and Thomas Vanek says playing with John Tavares is okay.

Good morning. Have you benched your franchise star because of a penalty lately? No? Good.

  • Butch Goring will discuss the hockey with you now (and with Calvin de Haan, about his pairing with Travis Hamonic and about the benefits of AHL grooming, and with Dave Langevin, about how the Isles didn't win Cups before their arrival nor after their retirements): NHL Talk Radio - The Butch Goring Show 01/08 by hockeythisweek

Just don't ask that too often or the rest of the Trek convention will be a bummer.
