The New York Islanders rookie camp is well underway, so here are some clips and shots from that, as well as other NHL news and videos:

Moulson Media Tour

Here is video of Matt Moulson talking about his first NHL goal, and below Moulson talks Brooklyn and raised expectations with EJ Hradek:

  • Whether it's off-center in Brooklyn or massive in Colorado, I couldn't care less about the size and location of the scoreboard when seeing a live game. Does it have score, time, and replay? Cool.
  • Maxim Lapierre will pest in St. Louis, but he really wanted to pest back in Montreal.
  • This would be fun if only it were true: Conspiracy theory: Could the Sabres be running the world’s greatest jersey con? | Two in the Box
  • A near rant about whether "Cup-winning goalie" means anything for future success.
  • The Capitals have re-signed Marcus Johansson, because RFAs have zero leverage.
  • NHL teams put new ice down, paint it and photograph it. Hockey fans get giddy because what, like we're supposed to watch football or baseball or something?
