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

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.

Big year for Sundstrom

Big year for Sundstrom

Not only has this been a wild free agency for the fans of the New York Islanders, the same could be said for the fans of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. If there’s one thing I do know about the fans in Bridgeport, it’s that they want to see the players that were drafted stay beyond their first year in Bridgeport before they get called up. It’s nice to see them grow not only as players, but as people as well. After this past weeks of signings, they may have been granted such a wish.
