Jersey advertisements long been looked at as an imminent, yet slow approaching alternative for the NHL to use. The “threat”, which once was nothing but a distant thought, became legitimized after the American Hockey League began to integrate ads on their jerseys.

And with Adidas replacing Reebok as makers of jerseys beginning in 2017, ads look to be on the way.

Islanders A to Z for PuckDaddy

7th Woman's picture

Yeah, yeah.  So you thought I was dead.  You're not that lucky.  Took a break for awhile, but then I was asked to do a comprehensive "A to Z" about the Islanders and thought -- What the hell.  It took me three days, but I didn't mention Jason Blake once... Not once.  Not under "B" for Blake or "J" for Jason.  And those who know me from the start know why this is so surprising.

So my idea of what every NHL fan should know about the NY Islanders.... sort of...Here at Yahoo Sports.

After a successful 2014-15 season, one would expect ticket prices to increase for the New York Islanders. The team was as competitive as it has been since the beginning of the 2000’s, and was playing at a level that brought fans in on a nightly basis. The Isles were in high demand, and people were showing up in the masses to watch them play.

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: The Leddy Edition 8/18/15

A year ago, your average hockey fan may not have even known Nick Leddy played in the NHL. He was a young defenseman coming off a season where he was buried on a championship caliber Chicago Blackhawks roster, struggling to get the playing time (16:22 ATOI/PG) and recognition he deserved.

A lot can change in a year.

Erie Otters v Oshawa Generals - Game Five

Islanders’ fans were reminded of the depth the organization has when ESPN’s Corey Pronman released his Top 100 Prospects for the 2015-16 season. Six Islanders’ draft picks made the list and the article served as a nice tribute to Garth Snow and how he has handled the last two NHL Entry Drafts.

Center Mathew Barzal is the highest ranked Islanders prospect on the list at 13. Pronman seems pretty high on the 16th pick from this year’s draft:

NHL: New York Islanders at Buffalo Sabres

It was just over a month ago, when I was fully 100% confident of the Islanders signing Brock Nelson to a contract extension. The restricted free agent had played out the terms of his previous deal and needed to put pen to paper with general manager Garth Snow on a new, fresh deal.

No, I don’t know what the Islanders lines will look like once they drop the puck on October 9th in Brooklyn, when the Chicago Blackhawks come to town and open up Barclays Center in grand style.

But we can go from experience and outright guessing for this exercise. It is August after all, where hockey news goes to hibernate for another four weeks before training camp opens league wide and fans get all giddy again.
