No new signings, no big interviews, no controversy. But we've got some Boulton.

  • Eric Boulton is ready for battle. Like, Fort Bragg ready. [Twitter]
  • Register now for the Islanders Children's Foundation Golf Outing. [Isles]
  • It sounds like the Gulls youth team will get to play at the Islanders practice facility again. This is evidently controversial and the organization accuses the Isles of "trying to cripple" it. [Newsday]

More Significant than Any of All This

Our own Keith Quinn, when not doing a BAD JOB!1, does nice things. Check out the summer benefit for the ELIJA School and kids with autism. Facebook event details here. Kickstarter here.
