A look around the web at the most recent New York Islanders news. Make Eyes On Isles your go to website for all things Islanders.
The New York Islanders have a rule where if someone isn’t signed by training camp they sit the full season. That deadline is this Thursday at 7:00am. Luckily Ryan Strome thinks a deal will get done.
