Islanders Reads

  • The morning after feeling about the Islanders in free agency was they were still looking for a winger, maybe even ol pal P.A. Parenteau, Arthur Staple said. [LHH]
  • Well what do you know. PAP's back, baby. [LHH | Puck Daddy]
  • Parenteau has unfinished business, you see. [Newsday]
  • Ilya Sorokin is "the real deal" and was impressed by his visit to the Islanders. [Newsday]
  • Garth Snow has seen a lot and said very little in his 10 years on the job [NY Times]. And he still has some work to do before the season starts [NY Post]
  • Kyle Okposo is confident the rebuild process will go quicker with the Sabres than it did with the Isles. [Puck Daddy]
  • (Of course, KO uttered those thoughts before Buffalo TRADED FOR ANDERS NILSSON.)
  • These guys asked about Okposo, and Dan answered. [Buffalo Wins]
  • Winging It in Motown is pretty happy their Wings were spurned by Matt Martin. [WIIM]
  • Pension Plan Puppets is not so thrilled they were the chosen ones. [PPP]
  • Scott Burnside surveyed the free agency aftermath and wrote words. [ESPN]

And a Bit from Beyond

  • The Panthers landed Jason Demers [Puck Daddy], and then they threw more cash to hang on to Vincent Trocheck for six more years. [Puck Daddy | LBC]
  • They also signed Aaron Ekblad for eight years. [Litter Box Cats]
  • The Stars replaced Demers with Dan Hamhuis. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Leafs just can't get enough of that Roman Polak. [PPP | TSN]
  • So many names left to sift through though! [TSN]
