Lobbying for player development (in the comments)

on
Doug asked: Hey Fornabaio, what’s your projected BST starting lineup for this season? Well, I know a good pass-the-buck/open thread when I see one, especially since I’m technically not supposed to be working right now. Turning it around, to all readers: What’s yours? Here’s the rough signed-up list from July 1. As noted over the […] [Read More]

Wrong “Nate”? Or wait…

on
Nate Thompson gets a two-way contract, avoiding arbitration. Greg Logan thinks that could make things interesting at the bottom of the Isles’ roster. Particularly if something weird happens, like the triumphant return of Miroslav Satan… oh. Yeah. Just in case, IHDB. (BTW, that’s the new Newsday Islanders blog linked up there. Fancy, schmancy, kinda weird […] [Read More]

Extra goalies

on
Sorry for the lack of correspondence. Have been battling all kinds of computer problems (neither was working for a few hours there) along with, you know, work. (Annoying stuff.) Besides, the most interesting Bridgeport-related bit has been Marty Biron‘s arrival in Uniondale, which won’t necessarily affect the Sound Tigers right away. At worst, perhaps the […] [Read More]

Friday night variety

Congratulations to the Winnipeg Free Press’ Tim Campbell, Gary Lawless and Randy Turner, winners of the Ellery Award for print. XM’s NHL Home Ice and Worcester television’s Kevin Shea were recognized in the broadcast media. Chris Nilan, enforcer of the ’80s and ’90s?

Wild kingdom

on
Minnesota looks to be the unofficial/official local/nonlocal organization right about now. Our buddy Andrew Ferraro reports that Wade Dubielewicz and Peter Zingoni and Jon DiSalvatore have signed or will sign with either the Wild (Dubielewicz and DiSalvatore) or Houston (Zingoni). A little Prep vs. Notre Dame in one-on-one drills come training camp, maybe? [Read More]

Callahan officially SJ, brings help

on
Ryan Vesce actually leads their release; the Sharks also sign Jed Ortmeyer, Danny Groulx and Dwight Helminen, some nice pickups. Our buddy Gerry Cantlon found this for Eurohockey: sniper Joe Motzko to MVD Balashikha in Russia. It has been too long: ObFWB: Also Motzko in the composition “of Anaheim” conquered in 2007 the Stanley Cup […] [Read More]
