A few things from Kevin Allen

NYI Fan Central's picture

I know a few folks have been e-mailing me asking about a follow up to what I wrote a few weeks about joining the Professional Hockey Writers Associaton of America and contacting President of the Association Kevin Allen.

I do not want to go overboard here at this time and write too much or speak too much for Mr Allen but I will tell you we spoke a week ago Tuesday, he was kind enough to call me back after doing an interview, we spoke for about twenty minutes and it was a pleasure where I learned a lot.

NYI Fan Central's picture

Friday begins with Pt II of our forward preview which includes Mike Sillinger, Trent Hunter and Jon Sim.

1. Mike Sillinger:
Mike Sillinger entered 2007-08 as a player coming off an excellent January in 2006-07where he was the go-to center come playoff time with Ryan Smyth and Jason Blake/Trent Hunter after a line of Hilbert-Sillinger-Hunter not only was an excellent shut down line but carried the offense for a stretch to sixth place heading into the trade deadline.

TSN’s Dreger Says Isles Sundin Darkhorse

Islesblogger's picture

I know, I know.

Never, no chance, he will never choose Long Island and it goes against everything we have been told in “The Plan”.

Dreger is credible however and Eklund made mention of this weeks ago. If times were different, say two years ago - I would certainly hope for a shot at Sundin.

A quick word on the latest rumor du jour, before I head out for some R&R upstate.

Dreger on TSN: "One thing is certain, Sundin won't be pushed. His future will be determined on his terms.

At least six teams have continually expressed interest in signing the unrestricted free agent, with the New York Islanders described as a dark-horse based on Garth Snow's persistence to keep his team in th

Yankee Stadium's Last Sorrowful Season

It's almost Labor Day, the official end of summer, and what should have been a glorious final season to one of the most famous stadiums in sports will probably end with a sigh instead of a cheer.

Witt Expected to Lead Again

TheDriveForFive's picture

Even though the Islanders defense will feature crafty veterans like Andy Sutton, Mark Streit and Radek Martinek this season, Brendan Witt will be asked to lead the charge once again.

Nothing against those guys, but Witt is arguably one of the best stay at home defensemen in the league and can lift a team’s spirit with a blocked shot or a big hit. No ask yourself, how many players in the league can do that?

Recently signing a new contract, Witt be will the Bert Marshall of what will hopefully be a young Islanders team that matures over the next few seasons.

NHL.com: Brian Compton has a feature on Islander prospects David Toews and Blake Kessel with their comments along with brothers Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Black Hawks and Phil Kessel of the Boston Bruins.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Another outstanding feature from NHL.com on the teams young prospects, almost seems like the league's staff is doing more on the Isles to make up for what the media is not providing.

NYI Fan Central's picture

A iittle fun for a quiet Monday, a Scott Gordon inteview on a local radio show today
Kjoy.com is mostly all that's happening.

I'm sure a few older folks remember this on television so I thought being that this is the time of year we see articles about things folks want to change around the NHL in that spirit here at NYIFC we would give our own list of requests as what we would like to see dropped or crushed in terms of hockey.

Enjoy.
