Today is a Wednesday, which is a bit more than a Tuesday but not quite a Thursday, if you catch my drift...

Islanders Reading

  • The Islanders rank...#4 (?!) in Corey Pronman’s ranking of prospect pipelines. Don’t tell the haterz. [E$PN]
  • It’s kind of important that John Tavares and Jordan Eberle find chemistry. [FanRag Sports]

  • The Isles will host NHL Centennial Tour festivities at the Northwell Health practice rink Sept. 16-17. [Isles]

Beyond All That

  • Today’s the day: Will Butcher uses the senior “loophole” to escape from the Avalanche’s rights and visit the Devils, Sabres and Golden Knights, among others. It’s like going from the most desperate team to some slightly less desperate teams. [Denver Post]
