New York Islanders Daily Links: Islanders PHT Day
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.
The New York Islanders made their appearance on Pro Hockey Talk on NBC Sports. Mike Halford recapped the Islanders 2015-16 season and then regurgitated the stories from the offseason.
The change in ownership and loss of players seems to be what everyone is harping on the most. The Islanders getting out of Brooklyn story is getting old but they just keep coming out. It’s getting to the point where I’ll just believe it when I see it.
As for the new ownership, most people think Jon Ledecky desperately wants this organization to succeed. We’ve seen them spend closer to the cap ceiling and it has to make you feel good to hear that he wants John Tavares to be an Islander for life.
Overall I think the Islanders put themselves in a good position for this upcoming season. They should be able to build off of last years success and take the next step forward.
