In a world with no news regarding the New York Islanders, life can get pretty dull (even with watching Johnny Manziel slip further and further in the draft, if you’re in to that kind of thing). Nothing new has really come up surrounding the team this week as the NHL playoffs continue.

However, the Toronto Maple Leafs made a big move yesterday, extending the contract of their head coach Randy Carlyle for the next two seasons. Yup, you read that sentence correctly.

New York Islanders : Options Wide Open For Snow?

Today it was announced that the Toronto Maple Leafs have extended head coach Randy Carlyle‘s contract by two years. That’s right, two years.

What this proves is that the New York Islanders….well I don’t know what it proves exactly but it certainly does make things more interesting when it comes to the club looking to shore up its goaltending situation heading into the 2014-15 season.

Just because a team is eliminated from National Hockey League playoff competition does not necessarily mean that all players from the roster get to enjoy a relaxing vacation and rest their weary bodies after a grueling 82 game regular season.

Some choose to accept invitations and represent their country in the IIHF (International Ice Hockey Federation) world championship. It is a tremendous honor to be selected for one of the national squads competing for the glory that pride that come with taking home the prize.

If you believe racial tensions, bigotry, and divides have been resolved in this country and throughout the world, let the following be a reminder of that notion’s naivety.

Last night’s 4-3 victory by the Montreal Canadiens over the Boston Bruins in double overtime, at the hands of superstar defenseman PK Subban, was tarnished by racism.
