Christian’s Daily Links: Let the Offseason Begin

Published

on

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.
