Islanders Insight Top Shelf: 10/12/15

Islanders’ fans need to pump the breaks on the criticism and take a deep breath. It has been two games and so many of you are ready to jump off the ship. The Islanders opened with arguably the toughest schedule in the NHL, playing the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on back-to-back nights. It was not pretty but it was two games. Lets not give up on the season...

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: 10/1/15

With the news of Thomas Hickey’s injury, the durable defenseman could miss up to four weeks and the Islanders defensive depth will get tested early on in the NHL regular season. The Islanders signed veteran Marek Zidlicky to provide depth but the issue with the Czech defenseman is that he is a right-handed shot. The Islanders have Travis Hamonic, Johnny Boychuk already on the right...

Islanders Insight Top Shelf: 9/21/2015

How Does Marek Zidlicky fit in on the Islanders blue line? I cannot imagine much has been decided this early into training camp but my early prediction would be that the Islanders newest addition would be paired with Thomas Hickey. As one of the oldest players in the league, it will be important that the coaching staff does not overuse Zidlicky. Before the signing I thought Ryan...

It was an exciting first day of training camp for the New York Islanders, as a lot of the organization’s youth attempts to impress the coaching staff, and the vets aim to get back into the groove.

Report: Bruins looking into defenseman Marek Zidlicky

The Boston Bruins are looking to shore up their defense this offseason after trading away Johnny Boychuck last October and Dougie Hamilton earlier this summer, and one possible target could be Detroit's Marek Zidlicky, according to a report from TVA. Zidlicky, a 38-year-old blue liner, would be a short term option for the Bruins, but he has some of the offensive upside that Boston...

However, after only 43 total games this past season in Detroit, including playoffs, Zidlicky may not be back for a second season with the Red Wings, who appear to be parting ways with the 38-year-old defender...
