NHL’s 30 in 30 started early for Islanders fans.

The NHL came out with it’s 30 teams in 30 days segment for the month of August and the New York Islanders were first on their list. First, let me start off my saying I thoroughly enjoyed this piece and everyone should go read it and then come back here. I thought the top prospects page was pretty much spot on as well. Basically from what I got from the rest it were some of the usual questions entering the season:

 

 

 

Oshawa Generals to Retire John Tavares’ Number

Islanders Insight's picture

Bobby Hull and Eric Lindros. Not bad company eh? John Tavares will join those two legends in the rafters of General Motors Centre when his jersey is retired by the Oshawa Generals on September 28th. JT will become the youngest player to have his jersey retired in Generals history. Tavares made history when he joined […]

New York Islanders All Time Team: Part I-”The Centers”

Islanders Insight's picture

Throughout their 43 year history, the New York Islanders have had many great players. The list runs from names such as Bob Nystrom, who was with the team from the start and achieved great postseason success as an Islander to modern day players who have been great in their own right, but haven’t achieved much […]

Who will Play on Mikhail Grabovski’s Wing?

Islanders Insight's picture

When the Islanders inked both Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin to four year contracts on July 2nd, it was a given that they would play together. If you look at any stat you want, whether it’s as simple as points or as in-depth as advanced stats, they will prove to you that these two players […]

  The inevitable is upon us, my fellow Islander fans. This, the 2014-15 season, is the last at Nassau Coliseum. We have seen this coming for years now, but it doesn’t feel like now’s the time to shut the door on the place the Islanders have called home for every year of their existence.  The […]

Hockey from the Blind Side, Evaluating After the Smoke Has Cleared

View From Section 317's picture

Are the Isles done with off season moves yet? I guess that is now the question that still is being bandied about in parts of Islander Country. Paul addressed this topic in a recent post, and I fall into his camp as far as believing that the Islanders could be very well set for what they have for next season, yet, at the same time, there are assets that can be dangled for a trade for that top 4 D-man.

I have been reading a lot about the minicamp and I am left with a lot of positive feelings from everything that has been reported. Basically, the Islanders are rich with good prospects, and that is going to make for healthy competition and options for Garth Snow and Jack Capuano. It is a strength that should not be overlooked or under appreciated either, folks.

Great job by all involved.

Stephon Williams taking a breather during Isles Mini-Camp

For most developing hockey players that have been drafted by an NHL team, the summer mini-camp is the place for them to show the powers that be – that they are improving and are worthy of the opportunity to grow and develop to be an eventual participant in the National Hockey League.  For 21 year old Stephon Williams, despite the fact of being drafted in the 2013 draft (4th round, 106th overall), this is his maiden voyage at camp.

Thoughts from camp

Scott Mayfield listening to instructions at camp

Scott Mayfield listening to instructions at camp

Got to talk to Scott Mayfield after practice.  He, being the ‘old guy’ here (his fourth), feels very comfortable in the setting.  He feels that his goal is to get some weight and speed.  He weighed in at 218, about 10 pounds more than he was during the season in Bridgeport.  He feels that there is a good program here to stress on the things he needs to work on before camp.
