I spent the entirety of the summer banging my “Casey Cizkas will be better for the New York Islanders in 2019-20″ drum. Only to learn that the New York Islanders will be using Casey Cizikas in the exact same role he had played last season. I’m pretty sour about that.
I get it. Casey Cizikas and linemates Matt Martin and Cal Clutterbuck set the tone and pace for the New York Islanders all season long last year. They played a style of hockey that both Lou Lamoriello and Barry Trotz hoped would seep into the rest of the lineup.
