New and Classic (Dynasty era) NHL games on iTunes

There is some difficulty navigating around in iTunes for a specific team, but I was able to find several classic dynasty era games in the Stanley Cup Winners volumes and Classic Rivalries volumes. Excellent for anyone who wants to know what the dynasty years were all about, and reasonbly priced at $1.99 per game or $9.99 per volume. (h/t to noomz for posting the bracket fanshot where I found out about the "buy game" feature.

Pat Bingham will not return as head coach of Bridgeport

Katie Strang #Isles will not be bringing back Pat Bingham as head coach in Bridgeport. No head coach names as of not. To be continued 21 minutes ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply Pat Bingham won't be back as Sound Tigers coach. No replacement named. Matt Bertani, trainers expected to return. 3 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply Does this open the door for Doug Weight to begin his coaching tenure? Doesn't sound like a great plan, but hey, convention is overrated. Will update link with full story when available. This is kind of shocking since there was really very little opportunity for any coach to prove anything. They had injuries and call-up problems all year.

Newsday's Staple Did Vote On Season Awards

This is his ballot, choices, and an explanation of why he chose to vote despite the boycott by the local chapters of the PHWA. My personal opinion is that he chose the professional course in this matter. Who knows if the outcome would have been different if he was present for the vote, but I would bet that he received some pressure from his brethren. Kudos Mr. Staple.

Capuano to Remain as Isles Head Coach: (Strang/Newsday)

"Assistant coaches Dean Chynoweth and Scott Allen are both expected to return; the Islanders are also considering bringing Doug Weight into the coaching fold if he retires." Link to team release:

The DiPietro Audio and the rest from "Breakdown Day"

Newsday's Katie Strang reported earlier today DiPietro bristled when confronted with questions about his place on the goaltending depth chart, but both Montoya and Poulin are expected to push him for the starting spot next year. "The 29-year-old feigned confusion when asked about his competition in training camp, asking "Who are we talking about here?," but the numbers make it abundantly clear. Montoya led the team in wins with a record of 9-5-5 and finished with a save percentage of .921 and 2.39 goals against average. Before a freak injury in warm-ups ended his season in February, Poulin posted a GAA of 2.44 and save percentage of.924. DiPietro finished last in the league in GAA ( 3.44 ) among all goaltenders with 25 games or more and second to last with a .886 save percentage." To me, the audio does not sound overly harsh, but DP becomes hushed in response to the previous question...which was similar. This is out of character for Katie Strang who is generally very conservative in Islander criticism. Make no mistake, while Chris Botta did write a story on this for IPB, the original was not his doing. Additional interesting answers from PA Parenteau on the differences between Gordon and Capuano and Haley and Gillies were good as well. I have not listened to all of them. What do you think?

Today's Newbie: Shane Sims (ATO)

Via the official site, the Islanders have signed their 2006 5th round draft pick and Ohio State University product Shane Sims to an ATO. He will play in tonight's game against the Flyers. Brock Nelson update: Small tailbone fracture, 6-8 weeks.

More Frans Nielsen love

This time from Rafal Ladysz of Die By the Blade (SB Nation's Sabres blog). "Top 10 NHL Secondary Scorers " "7) Frans Nielsen (New York Islanders) Is there a more underappreciated competitor in the National Hockey League? Denmark’s proud export is a big-hearted and tactically aware center who has a penchant for scoring shorthanded...." Read on...

Bust Fight! (After big hit)

Raffi Torres vs Ryan O'Marra. Torres crushes Eberle. What do you think of the hit? Torres may be suspended, but I'm not convinced it was that bad. Eberle dropped low and reached for the puck.

Unofficial CSS Draft Lists via NHL.com Mike Morreale

This is not in any type of sequential order because the true listings aren't supposed to be released until April 12. But the players show were selected as the top 10 in their league and the presence or absence of any names can indicate how far a player has moved up or slipped. Players are arranged alphabetically by league with the amount of potential 1st rounders per league in parentheses.
