Found March 29, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
Just a quick hit today as Art Staple has tweeted out the contact discussions for Lubomir Visnovky remaining with the Islanders are under way and are "very positive." I find it increasingly amusing that with the exception of Ryan Miller, the players who were most resistant to joining the Islanders are the ones that end up very happy to remain. Look at the case of Evgeni Nabokov who is happy t...

To the brink

Brenden Kichton (Spokane Chiefs) Just 3 games on the Thursday playoff schedule and all involving New York Islander prospects which resulted in 2 losses and 1 escape. Depending on your point of view then the 2 losses mean that the Islanders are this much closer to adding 2 talented prospects to their system. One who nobody is really sure what is going to happen when Brenden Kichton...

Moving on or moving out

Still seeing a young man rise to the occasion with a 4 point performance is a "feel good" moment to enjoy. How many ways to like first star of the game Mitchell Theoret's (NYI 2011...
