At least it's not a Mottau or a Staios?

The World Cup resumes, and perhaps concludes, with Game 2 of the final tonight.

Meanwhile, some readings:

  • They always do this, but still: Dennis Seidenberg is your newest Islander-signed-as-veteran-depth-during-camp. One year, $1 million. [LHH | Isles]
  • No but seriously, they always do this. With Ryan Pulock’s promotion and youngsters behind him, we should’ve seen it coming. [Newsday]
  • Granted part of the feeling was influenced by his gratuitous ice time and onerous cap hit — Boston bought him out — but our friends at Stanley Cup of Chowder did not have good memories of what ended up being Seidenberg’s final season as a Bruin. [SCOC]
  • The Islanders also made their first cuts of training camp, with Parker Wotherspoon, Mitchell Vande Sompel, and David Quenneville headed back to their Canadian junior teams. [LHH]
  • Arthur Staple likes pain*, so he’s added a mailbag to the Islanders coverage at Newsday. This one talks about the goalies, John Tavares’ next contract, prospects and such. [Newsday] *Statement not verified, use for entertainment purposes only.
  • Team Europe GM Miroslav Satan on Jaroslav Halak: "i think he is getting better with age." [NHL]
  • Remember: Next preseason game is in Bridgeport, against the Capitals. [Sound Tigers]
  • Just a heads up: October is just around the corner, which means anxiety hockey season is here, so look for the return of our Islanders Anxiety podcast today.
  • Brett Gallant is in Blue Jackets camp, happy to help protect the prospects. [Blue Jackets Extra]
  • Feel bad that anyone has to report this as news, but: No, no progress on NHL Olympic talks for 2018. [NHL]
  • Team Canada wants to be perfect and all that. [NHL]
