Dropped my kids off for their first day of they only have 15 years or so to become the next Mathew Barzal.

  • Mathew Barzal had a productive, busy summer training. But the best part was Vegas. [Isles Summer Series | Isles article on the Summer of George Barzal]
  • The Isles Blog and PTIsles podcast welcomed Brian Compton to discuss the upcoming season, and why he can no longer do Isles Seat podcast. (No, it wasn’t Lou. Or Garth.) [Sound Cloud]
  • Bode Wilde’s commitment is the latest move by OHL Saginaw to turn the franchise around. (Blade Jenkins is another.) [THN]
  • Nick Leddy is among the Minnesota NHLers supporting special hockey. [NHL]
  • Looking back at that 13-round shootout between the Isles and Lightning in 2013-14. [Raw Charge] (For historical context, here was our game recap...and then the next day came reports Charles Wang was actually selling the team.)
  • The green-allergic Devils (thanks, Lou!) will finally bring back a version of their original whites (with green trim) for a handful of games. [Devils]
  • The Coyotes and their scouting director had irreconcilable differences. [THN]
