An abandoned Armory in the Bronx is looking like it'll get rennovated into a facility that will host 8 ice rinks on multiple stories and will host the Islanders practices once they move to Brooklyn

When I look at the Rangers team I feel like come 2014-2015 they'll be in cap hell. They have this same endless cycle of paying players too much and having to find bargain guys in FA and its a cycle of top heavy to balanced for about a season then top heavy again.

This season they have, Clowe who is having some ridiculous demands it sounds like, Stepan, Hagelin, and Zuccarello as RFA's. Stepan I feel will get just north of 4 million, Hagelin around 2.5 million, and Zucarello at around 1.5 million. This season they can manage. It becomes the 2014-2015 season that is a issue

Callahan, Brassard, Del Zotto, Girardi, and a few bottom 6ers are up for upgrades on payment. Colombus didn't do NYR a favor by giving Brassard 3.2 million because he isn't going to take a paycut. Girardi is going to command more than 3.25, Del Zotto will command $$$ and Callahan will want some more $

Should be fun to watch and Hank is a UFA that season too.

Good for him, and it's about damn time. Joe Succo was a terrible dirty player, and sucked as a coach. I'm surprised they didn't can him sometime during the 11-12 season, and was very surprised they gave him an extension last Summer.

Not surprising seeing Sacco. Avs fans seemed pretty tired of him and the philosophy/system he had. You'd have to think Sherman is next. His window of excuses is running out too.

Not sure if this was posted yet, but wow one of the best saves I've ever seen. Even if it was going wide.

Sign him for this year PLZ! Seriously though that was awesome! He played for Buffalo or at least was a call up at one time when Miller was injured right?

I'm not really necessarily happy cause I could give a kazoo about that Avalanche team, but yeah good going for him. Hated him as a player cause he was a real ass, especially in his very brief stint with the Flyers which is right before he retired.

I'm puzzled how he outlasted Guy Boucher though. I think they gave Joe an extension after last season, and I was baffled cause I thought the plug was getting pulled right then and there.

Odds of the Islanders beating Pittsburgh is about the same as the chance they sellout one of their games @GriffinReinhart #natgreat

What an ass. I think us Devils fans should show up to the Isles home playoff games in force just to help the Isles defeat comments like this that snarky O6 fans love to aim at our franchise too.

Good luck to the Islanders, but you won't find me joining in the lovefest for them. I like them as much as I like the Penguins.

Have you seen secondary ticket prices for the Islanders? They are selling out the entire first round. Cheapest ticket for game 3 on Stubhub is more than I paid for game 1 of the finals last year.

this is how the rink SHOULD look after you miss the playoffs I guess... just never occurred to me it would look this chaotic.

I was reading something like a month ago about how he already retired?
