The New York Islanders have signed Steve Staios to a one year contract today. I think this is a great signing, and as I said the other day, Staios has looked great during camp and preseason. I felt he earned… Continue Reading
Hockey is back! It may not be as organized or as polished as we, as fans would like – but it was great to watch and listen to the game last night. The Islanders put forth a solid effort last… Continue Reading
Last week, I posted the first part of a multi-part post on my workout with Islanders strength and conditioning coach Jesse Demers. The first half talked about some general stretching, jumping rope and several dynamic leg stretches. In this part,… Continue Reading

So, I’m not sure if you know this – but hockey was back today at Nassau Coliseum. It wasn’t quite what the Orange vs Blue scrimmage was earlier this summer – I think the Islanders learned what worked and what… Continue Reading
Here’s a panoramic shot of the opening ceremony of today’s Islanders scrimmage at the Coliseum! Here is a much better panoramic – for those wondering I used Autostitch on the iPhone
