Another season of NHL hockey is upon us. How sweet it is.

Sorry for the delay this morning, folks. You see, I am an idiot.

Look out for Carey’s Deep Dive on the forwards today.

Islanders News

  • Your annual prediction thread/post is up. Stick tap to Sauceinatti for putting it together. [LHH]
  • The Isles’ site has their own preview on the forward corps for 2019-20. [Islanders]
  • Arthur Staple has ten bold predictions for the Islanders as the season opens, including another trip to the playoffs. [Athletic]
  • Katie Strang was hanging around Isles camp, too, and she has ten observations about her time back on Long Island. [Athletic]
  • Oliver Wahlstrom doesn’t think he’ll be in Bridgeport too long. No one else does, for that matter. [Newsday]

Wonder how long this guy will be there, too:

  • Elliotte Friedman’s 31 Thoughts includes some “speculation” on the Islanders and Josh Ho-Sang; I put quotes around “speculation” because, as he says, he can never truly know what Lou is doing, but he’s Elliotte Friedman — I don’t think he would put it out there for no reason.
  • The Isles officially announced their partnership with ESPN Radio. [Islanders]
  • WATCH: Take a virtual tour through Railers camp and hear from a few coaches, too. [YouTube]

Sweet, delicious ice:


  • For the first time this season... last night’s NHL scores. :’)
  • Bob McKenzie has signed an extension to remain with TSN. He was due to be a UFA next summer. [TSN]
  • Defenseman Torey Krug has begun contract extension discussions with the Bruins. If Dom were here, he’d remind everyone that they lost in the Cup Final to the Blues, but I don’t want to steal his bit.
