Islanders links

  • If you were away for July 4th weekend, we laughed and gawked at bad free agent contracts (and pined for the good ones).
  • 20 players filed for arbitration, most important among them was Islanders goalie Kevin Poulin. Oh, and guys named P.K. Subban and James Reimer, too. And about half of the Rangers. Dominik took a look at what Poulin might be after.
  • If the Islanders need to trade a forward to balance out the lines, Michael Grabner should not be one of the candidates. [Islanders Insight]
  • In one of his last acts at IPB, Kevin dutifully transcribed portions of Garth Snow's WFAN appearance last week.
  • VIDEO: The Windsor Spitfires complied their own fun behind-the-scenes video of Josh Ho-Sang (and a few teammates) getting drafted. Big points to the Spitfires for incorporating Garth's now-infamous S-bomb in all of its uncensored glory. But points off for not making the video embeddable.
  • We kind of glossed over this when it was announced, but the Islanders released their 2014 preseason schedule and it features games in St. John's, Newfoundland, Bridgeport, Boston, Newark, Uniondale and, of course, Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
