Islanders News: Cizikas analysis, and more about Fantasy Camp

It is a Rob Thomas day, my friends. “Man, it’s a hot one.” How “Smooth” was that? (I’m sorry.)

Islanders News

  • ICYMI: Greg Cronin’s official designation is now associate coach (which is apparently drastically different enough from “assistant coach” that it was termed a promotion). [Islanders | LHH]
  • In appreciation of Casey Cizikasthis article analyzes Cizikas’ play over the last few years and whether his extension is worth and folks, I gotta tell ya, the term still sucks but $3.5 million AAV isn’t as bad as I originally thought, given this evidence.
  • Remember Rob Davison? The guy who scored the hysterical cross-ice goal against Vesa Toskala and the Maple Leafs? The Leafs just hired him to their front office. Attacking the problem at the source, it appears. [Sporting News]
  • Matt Finn, not tendered an offer by the Sound Tigers, signed with the Charlotte Checkers in the Hurricanes organization. Bon voyage! [Soundin’ Off]
  • Stan Fischler runs down how the three metro area teams survived the summer. Oh, Stan. [MSG]
  • Anders Lee helps out his local TV news station with some trick shot entertainment. I recommend you watch, if only to contrast how good Lee is at this with how bad the news folks are at it.
  • The Isles Fantasy Camp that Dan had written about last week was a fine success. A jolly good time, even! [Islanders]
  • EJ Hradek and Doug Weight were mic’d up for the Blue-White scrimmage at the Fantasy Camp, and Weight is a very funny dude. Also, extremely odd to see Garth Snow in skater’s gear instead of goalie gear.
