Because the team has Monday and Tuesday off, we’ll do the chat Wednesday this week at the usual 1:30. Hope you can be here. (And it’ll be on this post.) Edit, late Tuesday: Some links in the meantime: –This may be Odessa’s last season in the pros: The American Statesman reports that the ownership plans […] [Read More]

Deadline day

on
First bit of Islanders news today is that Rob Schremp won’t be coming here at any point. Atlanta claimed him off waivers. Nathan Lawson cleared, so he’s eligible to be sent down. Here at a quarter after 12, the Islanders are left with 11 unsuspended forwards (Trevor Gillies serves the final game of his suspension […] [Read More]

Hard to bear

on
Hard to bear Look, this is a beat-up Hershey team. This Hershey team may be even more beat up than the Sound Tigers. They scratched 11 men today, including their top two goalies, an all-star defensemen and an AHL-elite right winger. (Although one of the 11 is a pretty good player that Washington sent down […] [Read More]

Uniform nostalgia

on
The throwbacks look funny with the current pants and socks, but otherwise, not bad at all. The orange, I was worried up close that it might look too funny, too different. From up here, it doesn’t. Now, will they play like some of the teams that wore the original on which this sweater is based? […] [Read More]

Joe Sullivan’s Saturday Night Penalty Party!*

on
So… y’ever see Mark Wotton flip out like that? “He didn’t just lose his cool for the sake of losing his cool,” Pat Bingham said. “He’s killing a penalty, and the puck’s shot out of play.” In fact, as I listen to Jamie cut the video behind me, you can hear Phil talking about how […] [Read More]

Who needs centermen?

on
Neither Jeremy Colliton nor David Ullstrom was on the ice for warmup. Ullstrom, word is, is not healthy, but no details at this point. (Haven’t seen Pat Bingham yet today, between no skate and Sacred Heart.) And Colliton, no word at all. Will pass on updates if/as we get them. (Edit: Ray, on Twitter, says […] [Read More]

Lawson, Schremp on waivers

on
The Islanders just announced they’ve placed Nathan Lawson and Rob Schremp on waivers. This doesn’t necessarily mean anything immediately. But work backwards: Monday is the trade deadline. Any player in the NHL at 3 p.m. on Monday can’t be sent down. So if the Islanders would want to send either of those guys down at […] [Read More]

Live from the living room: Manchester liveblog

on
(Actually, from the kitchen right at this instant. Might as well cook once in a while.) We’re home tonight, so we’ll do the typical liveblog here. We’ll be listening to Ken Cail’s Monarchs broadcast. Should get Twitter notes from warmup beginning around 6:25. We’ll probably start updating in earnest around then. –Koskinen-Jones, tweets Jamie. –Referee […] [Read More]
