A look around the web at the most recent New York Islanders news. Make Eyes On Isles your go to website for all things Islanders.

Shane Prince, was traded for by the New York Islanders at the trading deadline last year. Prince really began to shine with the Islanders in the playoffs, specifically Game 1 of the Tampa Bay Lightning series, the lone win for the Islanders in that series.

Prince came from the Ottawa Senators, so when his buddy got dealt to a rival Prince had an interesting question on Twitter.

Well played Prince! Obviously he was playing the fans, trying to get the fans to jump in and say of course he’s the enemy now, but players don’t think like fans do. They have friendships with these guys off the ice.

Just because someone you know gets traded doesn’t mean you are going to stop being friends with them. It’s not going to effect anything on the ice, they’re professionals, but during a slow news time I love Shane Prince shaking it up with this tweet, very funny!
