So hey, did anything happen with the New York Islanders last night? No? Okay then.

Islanders Reads/Hysterics
  • Some big message-sending news dropped last night: Ryan Strome back to Bridgeport. [Newsday | LHH]
  • (Speaking of which, look for a post from garik16 a little later on Strome's struggles and those of the rest of this vexing team.)
  • Nice timing on a feature about multiple Strome's path to the NHL, then. [ESPN]
  • The next prospect/savior of the future, Mathew Barzal is proving doubters wrong. [Today's Slapshot]
  • Not sharing the Bridgeport ice with Strome: Kirill Petrov, whose foot was broken in warmups. [Soundin' Off | LHH]
  • Arthur Staple sifts through the ashes of the season thus far (and before the Strome demotion), then gets crucified on social media, probably. [Newsday]
  • Panic time? Panic time! [Isles Nation]
  • Mike Bossy's Coliseum memories are in the head. ""Every team in the last 25-30 years have gotten a new building. Not all of them have been built where the other one was." [Post Game]
  • Shocker: The Nets had a boost in secondary ticket prices after moving from Newark to Brooklyn, the Islanders not so much, after one month. [Forbes]

  • Tom Wilson and an Isles fan with a Wilson Sucks sign are cool now. [RMNB]
Beyond Hysteric Country

  • Pascal Dupuis had a health scare reminiscent of his blood clot issue, but hospital tests came back negative. [NHL]
  • Talking with some Riveters. [FIOS1]
  • The Habs unveiled their history-loving Winter Classic jersey. [HEOTP]
  • Sergei Fedorov once left the Wings to patch things up with the young missus. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Blues inadvertently #roared bacon, then David Backes took my friend's pig to practice. (Note: This is the same family whose daughter's video crying over the TJ Oshie trade went viral. Fun year.)
