Happy Labor Day. It is Labor Day, right. This isn't Russia. Is this Russia? This is isn't Russia.

Islanders, uh, stuff..

  • Audio: The Hockey Writers talks to old warrior Rich Pilon about his time as an Islander and his old coach, Al Arbour.
  • Sportsnet and USA Today name the Islanders among 2015-16 playoff teams in danger of missing this season. Eyes on Isles takes exception.
  • Funny meeting you here

  • And per ESPN's Scott Burnside, Cappy will be in charge of Team USA's penalty killing at the World Cup. Hope he's bringing Greg Cronin's playbook.

Other stuff

  • More World Cup absentees: now Tomas Hertl and Radko Gudas are out for the Czech Republic. I'm sure Dom is all broken up about not getting to root for a Gudas team. []
  • The big shots who tried to being Steven Stamkos to Toronto are revealed and it's news for some reason. [PPP]
  • Are the Flames in danger of missing the playoffs again? [M&G]
  • Inside the player tracking technology that's coming soon. [SBD]
  • The Rangers named Chris Drury assistant GM and Little League pitching coach. [BSB]
  • Among P.K. Subban's many talents is also being a masterful Photoshop troll. Or not. Either way, this is amazing. [EOTP]
