Rosner Wrap: Former Allegations Against Wiseman, Position Controversy & More
Ok, it has been officially over three weeks since the start of NHL free agency, with the New York Islanders the only team not to have made at least one move, officially. We are still waiting to see what is going on regarding Nazem Kadri, despite the overwhelming reports that he is in fact Long Island bound.
Before we hear about a signing of that magnitude, I believe we will hear about a big, cap-clearing trade first.
There was an update to the New York Islanders schedule this morning, as their game against the Detroit Red Wings on Nov. 5 will now be played at 1 PM.
Here are the New York Islanders and NHL stories to know for today:
NYI Hockey Now: Last week, the New York Islanders announced the hiring of John MacLean, also announcing that Brian Wiseman would no longer be part of the coaching staff after signing on the first week of July. Could his resurfaced past have anything to do with the change?
NYI Hockey Now: If Nazem Kadri is on the Islanders roster for the 2022-23 season, head coach Lane Lambert will likely need to move one of his centers to the wing position. The first-year head coach has a few options.
Washington Hockey Now: The Washington Capitals got a positive sign on Wednesday, as 2022 first-round selection A took the ice with a big smile on his face. Miroschnichenko was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma back in March and thankfully entered remission in June.
Florida Hockey Now: One thing was always certain ever since Ryan Lomberg first became a member of the Florida Panthers and that is how he always plays with compete and drive. Working his way up from the ECHL, the undrafted forward found himself on Florida’s radar after a five-year stint in the Calgary Flames’ system. Can he exceed a fourth-line role with the Panthers in 2022-23?
Montreal Hockey Now: Former Montreal Canadiens captain and current Carolina Hurricanes winger Max Pacioretty believes one of the reasons the Vegas Golden Knights missed the 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs was a lack of accountability.
Detroit Hockey Now: Red Wings of Tomorrow is assessing every prospect in the Detroit Red Wings system and what they are projecting to be in the future. We’ll be looking at the strengths and weaknesses of their game, as well as what the future holds for them as they advance through the Detroit organization. Today, we look at left wing Dimitri Buchelnikov.
Vegas Hockey Now: Will the Vegas Golden Knights be entering the 2022-23 season with one of the strongest defensive cores in all of the NHL? Owen Krepps seems to thinks so as he dives into their defense in his latest.
San Jose Hockey Now: The San Jose Sharks have a new Director of Player Development in Todd Marchant. What’s the key to having success in this position? Sheng Peng spoke to someone who has held that position before, who stated that more than just a player honing his skills on the ice with a coach. More from that interview.
Calgary Hockey Now: The Calgary Flames courtship of Jonathan Huberdeau has officially begun. And Flames GM Brad Treliving is hoping it’s not just a rebound relationship. The two had a get-to-know-you dinner in Montreal as the hope is that Huberdeau will want to remain in Calgary. It just may take some convincing.
