Islanders News: Stop whining! You kids are soft. You lack discipline.

You mean you eat other people's lunches? Stop doing that!

Welcome to Islanders rookie camp, 2014. I'm the coach. They call me Cappy. You can call me Cappy.

Islanders bits:

  • The kids are ready to show their stuff. And for the ones who have already suited up for the Islanders, it's not a time to feel safe. [Staple in New$day]
  • Also arriving on Long Island are veterans like Travis Hamonic, who is basically Grizzly Adams. Hamonic built his own Iroquois longhouse-style gym so that he could work out and then go fishing. Oh, and he drove to camp again from Manitoba, a 30 hour ride. [Islanders Official, also includes bits on Michael Grabner and the rookies.]
  • And the four new vets - Mikhail Grabovski, Nikolai Kulemin, Jaroslav Halak and Chad Johnson - are discovering the Islanders together. [New$day]
  • Videos: Kyle Okposo on his summer and goals for the season. | John Tavares on getting the band back together.
  • Cory Conacher is looking for a shot and a team to stick with. [Islanders Insight]
  • Colin McDonald spreads some cheer at Cohen's Children's Medical Center. [Islanders]
  • McDonald also got to play firefighter for a day [Islanders Video]
  • One NHL star picked John Tavares as the player he would "build a team around." Guess who. [Eric Hornick's Skinny]
  • In the nostalgic rush to celebrate old Islanders teams, don't forget about the current squad. [The Hockey Writers]
  • The NHL changed a bunch of rules for next season. One of them outlaws the spin-o-rama in shootouts. And it's pretty much all the Islanders' fault. [Dom has the rundown]
