The Islanders got to recharge some yesterday, and as the rest set in and the fuel tank restored they no doubt had that hindsight moment of "Really? We couldn't even pot one shootout goal against Toronto?" thoughts. So it goes. Life is winding, the 82-game season is long.

  • Here are the top 15 NHL free agent prospects in the NCAA, and I'm sure some of them will totally turn out better than Gilroy and Schultz. [SBN College Hockey]

  • Pay attention, tankers. This is how you flip the switch from Leaf-ing stock to contender. [Down Goes Brown - Sportsnet]
