Islanders linkage

  • The Islanders preseason schedule is out and Brooklyn-centric. [LHH]
  • Kyle Okposo could star in a remake of the classic Lee Majors television series, The Six Million Dollar Man (not really, but yeah really.) [LHH]
  • Pierre McGuire vomits up some vague grist for the Okposo rumor mill. [IPB]
  • My friend Kyle from Winging It In Motown asked me a few Okposo questions and I responded by heartlessly bursting his bubble.
  • Michael Dal Colle chatted with the Point Blank podcast.
  • A great FanPost about seeing Al Arbour's 1,500th game at the Coliseum.
  • Don Cherry and Mike Milbury aren't even the most notable names in this story about Don Cherry and Mike Milbury. [LHH]
  • Our penultimate (I think) draft profile is going to college. [LHH]
  • And a draft profile of a young defenseman with a favored last name around here: Ryan Pilon.

Around the league stuff

  • A full recap of this weekend's NWHL draft. [NWHL]
