Bits o' Islanders News
New York Islanders news bits, rumors and hockey blade splinters.
Also, Ilya Sorokin is stateside. Long Island–side, in fact.
If this were at all legible you’d see what I meant.
Also, much ado about Kadri.
Another reporter says it’s just a matter of time before Nazem Kadri is announced as an Islander.
What, you were expecting more Kadri whispers?
Also, a little more about our favorite Great Dane.
But how "new" is he? To the Islanders, very; to Lou Lamoriello, not at all.
While things remain quiet with the Islanders, the ripples of an NHL blockbuster continue.
Still quiet around these parts. No banners yet. (That has to be the jinx word, right?)
Could the Islanders fit a big fish into their cap? Maybe. Will they? Chances remain slim.
Around the league, RFAs reach the next stage, while teams wait for Kadri.
Lou? He’s probably working on something too.
There’s no way, but we are bound to discuss if there could be a way.
The Islanders took care of some blueline depth business by extending their own aspiring AHL/NHL guys.
The first round is tonight, Lou told us the usual. But no concerns about Ilya.
Also, some pre-draft reading and some concern about Sorokin.
Also: Will the Isles select their next Dobson in the draft?
NHL teams jockey for the draft and cap maneuvers ahead of the opening of free agency
I mean, Sorokin absolutely robbed Panarin.
Also, the Red Wings and Bruins have their coaches.
Also: LOTS of free agent buzz and one trade around the NHL
Another former Islander is named to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Or did you forget that part again?
Next up: The draft is July 7-8, unrestricted free agency opens July 13.
The Isles’ 2020 fifth-round pick can’t stop scoring. Also, Game 6 of the Cup Final is tonight.
