Here and gone: Coupla Wednesday notes

on
The Islanders announced yesterday that Mike Halmo and Kevin Czuczman accepted their qualifying offers, so they’re under contract for next year. QOs were scheduled to expire Wednesday for Kevin Poulin and Brock Nelson, though conceivably they could’ve been extended (haven’t heard anything for sure). What’s that mean? Not much, directly. They’re still restricted free agents. […] [Read More]

Summertime, two months early: 2014-15 wrap

on
Both Brent Thompson and Dave Stickney had their dogs in the room today. Scooter Vaughan walked in, saw them both running around with Jack Gallant, and asked the only logical question: “Where are we right now?” Good question. After 76 games, it’s over, earlier than we ever could’ve imagined in November or even most of […] [Read More]

One back, one set back: Wednesday notes

on
One change: Brett Gallant in for practice, Mike Halmo off. “(Halmo) wasn’t feeling as well today” after skating yesterday, Brent Thompson said. He’s not expecting Halmo to make the trip, or John Persson, either, though Persson skated again today with the team. Status quo otherwise; the rookie tryouts remained together, and that line (Eberle-Brooks-Markison) could […] [Read More]

On Goal: Manchester (2) postgame

on
Edit: Arthur Staple reports Griffin Reinhart is going up to the Islanders. When the game was still sort of in doubt — if it ever truly was — it was the third and fourth lines driving offense. Eberle-Sutter-Markison, Gillies-Sundstrom-Langkow keeping the puck deep. “Listen, the third and fourth lines are giving second and third efforts,” […] [Read More]

Coming back, both sides edition: Springfield postgame

on
As the kids roll in (and maybe start rolling in in earnest), holdovers like Mike Halmo have their roles to play, getting the top-six minutes, and in particular in Halmo’s case, working his way back from missing much of the year. “I think I’m just finally getting back in game shape,” Halmo said. “A lot […] [Read More]

No continuation, another loss: Worcester postgame

on
Biggest difference between this thing and Saturday’s win? “Overall urgency,” Brent Thompson said. “Each one-on-one battle. That was the difference. We didn’t win enough one-on-one battles. We lost D-side positioning.” The Sharks scored two quick goals in the second and didn’t have that lead particularly threatened. There were a few big drives on the power […] [Read More]

Halmo, Mouillierat, Mayfield back

on
Two-thirds of a top line — or, a third of their top six — returns tonight for the Sound Tigers. Mike Halmo’s back from injury; Kael Mouillierat’s back from the NHL. Lengthens the lineup just a tiny bit, no? Scott Mayfield comes back from his six-game suspension, too. The Sharks have one to scratch. First […] [Read More]

More ins and outs: Tuesday notes

on
Bridgeport was still missing Brett Gallant this morning, but Ryan Pulock was back on the ice. Mike Halmo could be ready to go: “I think we’re going to try,” Brent Thompson said. “We’re excited to have that leadership back in the lineup. Obviously we’re going to give him some leeway.” That practice was over before […] [Read More]
