I don’t know the exact dates NHL camps open up, but I’d have to imagine a month from today, we’ll be talking about the Islanders at training camp. It’s getting closer, folks!
- GM Lou Lamoriello says the Isles needed the Belmont arena to remain on Long Island. He also provides some updates on the roster for the upcoming year. Among them: of the three unsigned RFAs, two have agreements in place (didn’t specify who) and Casey Cizikas isn’t a candidate to play 3C because he and coach Barry Trotz don’t want to split up TBFLIH.
