There was no official word from the Isles camp until 3:43 pm when Art Staple quoted GM Garth Snow that all conversations with players remain private, however he did not speak with Nino. They did confirm the...

Kevin Schultz suspects Isles general manager Garth Snow may not have spoken with Niederreiter about why he was snubbed, prompting the Swiss forward to request a trade:
If I’m a...

Flames and Canucks Look for First “W”
Northwest Division foes headline a rather light NHL schedule Wednesday night. Both the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks have been underwhelming so far and each need a win in the worst way. Two points for either team on Wednesday will go a long way in lessening the hole created by a pedestrian start to this shortened season.
The Milwaukee Admirals have signed veteran forward Brad Winchester to a pro tryout contract...

The Bolts did a number on the Caps...
Lightning captain Vinny Lecavalier played his 1,000th game today against the New York Islanders. Unfortunately, Tampa Bay could not find a defensive answer and a late offensive surge was not enough as they fall to the Isles 4-3. The Islanders were out in front 4-0 in the third period before the Lightning can even put a legitimate offensive threat together. Martin St. Louis got the...
Lackluster efforts in their early road games over the past three seasons have helped contribute to the New York Islanders' lengthy playoff drought.
With an abbreviated schedule, the Islanders know it's even more important to have better road performances to start this season, beginning with a five-game trip that starts Thursday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
