Islanders & NHL News: Lou’s ‘extremely excited,’ Price ‘at peace’

The team has “extremely excited” him. He has confidence in the roster. He’s constantly trying to improve the group. (I may have made up that final phrase, but in reality, it is an S.O.P. line that dates back to the Snow Age.)

However, there were some updates. We’ll take it after a really, incredibly dry offseason, I suppose.

Lou is “extremely excited” for the start of rookie camp on Thursday. [Newsday]
If Alex Romanov isn’t ready for the start of the season, he’ll be near because of his improvement. Lou claimed that he would play with two broken legs if he could, which is something that the majority of NHL teams would likely tolerate even in 2023. Newsday’s NHL page
Although Zach Parise won’t be attending camp, he is still with his family and the “door is always open.” Maybe he’ll do a Glenn Anderson, minus the trip to the Caribbean in the fall.

Islanders News

Everyone on an ELC as well as draft picks are welcome to rookie camp. Can some of these players compete for a spot on a squad that is already full?

There will be events held at the Bridgeport Sound Tigers Islanders venue to a sports wagering venue. Salute to advanced capitalism! [Post by CT]

Elsewhere

Your hopes of a Tomas Steak Tatar should be crushed because that player joined the Avalanche.
The Canucks’ new captain is Quinn Hughes. He replaces Bo Horvat, a candidate we are interested in. For his part, Horvat is thrilled for Hughes and believes he will succeed. I sincerely hope Lou is fine with him mentioning a different team and a former teammate!

Seth Jones hopes to succeed the current captain in Chicago. Maybe he’ll get his desire for a little while before they give it to their 20-year-old first selection or something.
The Spittin’ Chicklets podcast, which, let’s face it, has a questionable legitimacy and a bad reputation for being full of blowhards à la Baaaahhhhston, criticized Mike Babcock for having Blue Jackets players share family photos from their childhood in-person conversations on their phone. Biz (who said, “I sort of had an NHL career and I vaguely know that being outrageous keeps me on the air” Nasty) explicitly mentioned Babcock and Boone Jenner in his response, and they fired back. Most likely, the middle ground contains the truth. It’s like watching two assholes argue because Biz is a non-factor ex-player trying to stay relevant as a talking head and Babcock is a coach with a repulsive past who is attempting to repair his reputation. Blue Jackets (CBC)

NHLPA and NHL are looking into it. Johnny Gaudreau claims it was typical and regrets that a podcast promoting vodka exaggerated its significance.
The first NHL games to be held in Australia are a “great opportunity” to expose the population to new forms of violence and parody the country’s geography. Brodeur is kangaroo-kicking the puck out, as Doc Emrick would tediously remark.
Carey Price “seems at peace” with starting the remainder of his life as a goalie outside of the National Hockey League.
This is not a surprise, and the NHL hasn’t ruled out a third expansion to Atlanta. Ownership disputes wrecked the last occasion. That metro area draws 40–50,000 spectators to an MLS team playing in an artificial-turf NFL stadium Okay, turf? Atlanta might well be a location that a multi-billion dollar league doesn’t want to rule out, and I’m as Nordiques-nostalgic as they come.
Although he hasn’t made a decision, Mikael Backlund is still open to the possibility of playing another season for the Flames.

Due to a foot ailment, Torey Krug, who used his NTC to stop a trade to the Flyers in the offseason, will miss the beginning of camp for the Blues. When healthy, he was a good player for the Blues, but injuries have made him a victim of fan scapegoating.
The Bruins reveal 100 “historic” players from the franchise’s past for their centenary season. As their window closes, they might require that distraction.
