Mike and Dan return to their mics to discuss the Ilya Sorokin signing(s), training camp 2.0 and the Islanders cautious return to the ice.
They talk about their excitement about having the decorated KHL champion in the fold for next season and what it means for the Islanders’ looming salary cap situation. Later, they talk about the CBA extension, the Islanders resuming practice with formerly injured players Adam Pelech and Casey Cizikas and the assurance of hearing Barry Trotz’s voice again.
Finally, they laugh about this year’s messed up Draft Lottery and all the ways it went wrong for the league, and how it could still go very wrong for the Islanders.
- They actually signed the son of a bitch. Twice! [LHH]
- The schedule for the Islanders-Panthers play-in series (and an exhibition warm up game against the Rangers, of all people) has been released.
- Hey. remember these guys? [Islanders]
- Two things we forgot to mention: this fun look back at Barry Trotz’s University of Manitoba Days from The Athletic, and Dan and Noel’s “Advanced Shouting” Facebook show, featuring actor and hockey fan Michael Vartan and a host of celebrity guests.
