I do not wish to go outside today. Unfortunately, I must.

It is a Rob Thomas day, my friends. "Man, it's a hot one." How "Smooth" was that? (I'm sorry.)

Islanders News

  • ICYMI: Greg Cronin's official designation is now associate coach (which is apparently drastically different enough from "assistant coach" that it was termed a promotion). [Islanders | LHH]
  • In appreciation of Casey Cizikasthis article analyzes Cizikas' play over the last few years and whether his extension is worth and folks, I gotta tell ya, the term still sucks but $3.5 million AAV isn't as bad as I originally thought, given this evidence.
  • Remember Rob Davison? The guy who scored the hysterical cross-ice goal against Vesa Toskala and the Maple Leafs? The Leafs just hired him to their front office. Attacking the problem at the source, it appears. [Sporting News]
  • Matt Finn, not tendered an offer by the Sound Tigers, signed with the Charlotte Checkers in the Hurricanes organization. Bon voyage! [Soundin' Off]
  • Stan Fischler runs down how the three metro area teams survived the summer. Oh, Stan. [MSG]
  • Anders Lee helps out his local TV news station with some trick shot entertainment. I recommend you watch, if only to contrast how good Lee is at this with how bad the news folks are at it.
  • The Isles Fantasy Camp that Dan had written about last week was a fine success. A jolly good time, even! [Islanders]
  • EJ Hradek and Doug Weight were mic'd up for the Blue-White scrimmage at the Fantasy Camp, and Weight is a very funny dude. Also, extremely odd to see Garth Snow in skater's gear instead of goalie gear.

Oh, and Brock Nelson's team won their game in the Da Beauty League last night, on the heels of Nelson's hat trick.
