"Carl Lipbaum died last week from a severe anxiety attack. That means there's a job available on the blueline again. See Judge Smails."

New York Islanders mini-camp is over, the World Cup is over, and now it's Monday. Hopefully you're on holiday. The rest of us poor saps will have to read things:

  • Photos from the final day(s) of camp. [Isles]
  • Gophers sophomores (and NCAA runners up) Taylor Cammarata and Jake Bischoff discuss their first Isles camp. [Isles]
  • Several took in a Mets game, some tweeted about it. [Hashtag Isles / LHH]
  • Not sure how much it was discussed here, but I quite strongly agree with point #2 in this "10 things I think I think": "I really, really hope Ho-Sang holds on to No. 66." [Isles Insight]
  • "From the blind side" view on the Isles camp and offseason. [Isles Talk]

  • On the history of the Oilers rebuild(s): "It’s easy to forget that optimism was the rule of the day in the summer of 2008." [Oilers Nation]
  • Do you know what an "echo chamber" is? It's a bunch of writers from The Hockey News, once a proud publication, telling each other how a below-the-border market's star is sure to sign in Toronto as soon as he's a UFA. [Twitter] In this instance, Ken Campbell comes off as sane -- probably because in this case that is the role that overlaps with "curmudgeon."
  • While the Isles fill their off-ice roles with Maine and/or New England types, the Bruins fill their draft pool with relatives of their off-ice people. [Boston Globe]
