Islanders Insight’s Top Shelf: 3|12|15

With the news that New York Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy will miss the next two weeks with an upper-body injury, you know what I’d like to see? I would love to see the Islanders give either Griffin Reinhart or Ryan Pulock a call to the NHL. It’s not really urgent. The Islanders only play four games over their next 12 days, so Leddy isn’t going to miss all that much hockey...

Should Calgary Trade Up For Ekblad?

Follow me @IanEsplen for fun, Flames, rumours and NHL Draft coverage   I'm sure everyone has heard the rumour out there that the Florida Panthers are shopping the No. 1 pick.

Turnovers and sloppy play lead to disappointing loss to Islanders

Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images This was a rough game for the Rangers. They gave up a pair of short handed goals, they committed 16 turnovers (to the Islanders 5), and the goaltending didn’t bail them out as they dropped a disappointing game to the Islanders by a score of 5-3. Henrik Lundqvist really isn’t to blame for the way the goals were scored, but the fact of the matter...
