Don't want to read about the New York Islanders? Too bad. Or rather, you can skip down to the NHL reads below.

Islanders Reads/Listens

This was discussed some in comments yesterday -- as was a quiet invite from a person of interest -- but here is audio of Garth Snow's interview on SiriusXM's Hockey This Morning.

My short summation: Nothing new there, and not terribly inspiring. It's not the oft-criticized diplomatic praise of Evgeni Nabokov (always carefully couched as "has been a great goalie in this league"), but rather the lack of assessment beyond "patient with these young players" that left me wondering what the summer plan is.

Post-game Sound Tigers notes from Michael Fornabaioo include this:

"On opening night, Bridgeport’s lineup included 16 guys on NHL contracts and four guys on AHL SPC’s. [...] tonight, Bridgeport dressed a lineup that included 10 NHL contracts, three AHL contracts, two amateur tryouts and five PTOs. And two of those NHL contracts were guys who started the year on AHL contracts."

Bridgeport lost 4-1 to Hartford by the way. Micheal Haley scored (for the bad guys), recent Yale captain Jesse Root was credited with a goal off his skate.

This isn't Isles-related, except ... Randy Carlyle was critical of James Reimer and everyone lost it. (And Darren Dreger says he'll ask for a trade this summer.)
