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 bit of a goalie competition this year. Luckily for them, Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss are playing in the World Cup Of Hockey. That’ll give the Islanders a chance to take a look at the two goalies in action.

Both Halak and Greiss are ready for World Cup action. They will both be playing for Team Europe in the tournament.

The only issue is that there are three goalies on the roster and only one crease. So who gets the nod as the starter. For the competition, quality of play in the tournament should cerrtainly be a factor.

If one outplays the other, it’ll give them an edge when they get back to the Islanders. The only concern is injury, but on the flip side you can look at this as a warm up to the season and that it’s actually beneficial to participate.
