Christian’s Daily Links: All Quiet on the New York Islanders front

Published

New York Islanders

When it comes to the New York Islander, all is quiet on the western front.

The New York Islanders remain in a holding pattern as they try to clear cap space to re-sign restricted free agents Ryan Pulock and Mathew Barzal, as well as sign some unrestricted free agents. NYI Hockey now made the case for the Islanders to take a look at UFA forward Anthony Duclair once they have navigated their cap crunch.

The case could be made that the New York Islanders already have the pieces in place within the organization that would help them improve upon their run to the Eastern Conference Finals. Andrew Battifarano examines who the Islanders could look to internally to take that next step.

And speaking of internal depth, Bridgeport Sound Tigers coach Brent Thompson highlighted three players that Islanders fans should be keeping an eye on.

Christian’s Daily Links: Let the Offseason Begin

Published

New York Islanders

It took nearly a full calendar year for Stanley Cup Champion to be crowned for the 2019-20 season. The Tampa Bay Lightning closed out the Cup Final on Monday night with a 2-0 win over the Dallas Stars to secure the franchise’s second Stanley Cup.

The Tampa Bay victory will bring some Islanders fans some comfort over New York’s Eastern Conference finals loss.

With a champion crowned, that means the offseason is officially upon us. The Islanders offseason began a little over a week ago, but now things will kick into high gear. The Islanders have plenty of items to deal with during the offseason from RFAs and UFAs to sign to handling their current cap situation.

On the latest episode of Hockey Night in New York, my co-host Sean Cuthbert and I dissected what the New York Islanders offseason will entail.

New York Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello is scheduled to address the media this afternoon for the first time since their season came to an end earlier this month. Stay tuned for complete coverage of that.
