"I wanted to stay here badly. I love the guys in the organization. ... There are a lot of good character people in this organization, on and off the ice. The potential for the team to do well is something I obviously looked at. When you think you can be a really good team, with character people you like to be around every day, it's a pretty easy decision."

Matt Moulson on why he re-signed last year, in a nice S.I. write-up by Farber. (h/t NHL_fan)

"It was 128 questions," Aneloski said. "One of them was something like ‘In the future, where would you like to live? In the woods by yourself or in the suburbs?’"

Cedar Rapid RoughRiders (USHL) blueliner Bryce Aneloski, describing the Islanders' psych exam they give to potential prospects. (h/t BC) Question: You're 17/18/19. How would you answer?

Tavares, Bailey, Schremp and Nielsen - are players whom Gordon wants to groom at the center position and form into a force up the middle.

Strang's article about moving Doug Weight to wing. Even before Schremp, we knew Weight (or Tavares at first) would end up on wing. Tavares's capable start just codifies things. If they want to grow around those four for now, I'm fine with that. We'll see who sticks and what changes are needed as we move further along.

"[What Gordon said] tells you something. ... When things are going well and in the right direction, time goes by a little bit faster too. I think we're all positive and there's a good atmosphere here. ... I think there's a bright future here and I think everybody here thinks the same way."

>>Sean Bergenheim reflecting on the future. Islanders Outsider has that and a bushel of quotes from Bergie and Mark Streit in the same scrum.

John Tavares potted a hat trick Sunday to become the OHL's all-time leading goal scorer.

As reported by CBC Sports and hundreds of other outlets. It was the 215th OHL goal by Tavares -- who apparently is pretty good. Just saying.

"I think everybody is pretty comfortable right now," Bergenheim said of the Islanders' drastically altered landscape. "Not to take anything away from anybody who was here before, but we're young and we have a good group here. We had that all year, but right now, it seems like we're kind of glued together a little bit better than maybe before on the ice.

Sean Bergenheim, after his hat trick against the Devils, talking about the new generation taking over.

Just a phenomenal place. The people are friendly. The hockey fans that recognize us treat us like gold. The weather, the beach…I mean, it’s just the greatest place to be. ... I’m telling you, I love this place. I hope to make it my home.

19-year-old Josh Bailey, who set up 20-year-old Kyle Okposo for two goals last night.
