Quick Notes | April

Wow. I can't believe the season is already over. It seemed like John Tavares just scored his first NHL goal yesterday in the 2009-2010 home opener. Throughout the off season, I am going to be doing a segment called "Quick Notes". So here's to start off with...

-Isles will select 5th overall in the 2010 NHL Draft.

-The Isles signed enforcer Trever Gillies to a one year contract extension. I believe he will be a great addition next season as he was for the remainder of the 2010 season. He sticks up for his teammates when needed, and can deliver some hits too. He always brings the energy needed for the Isles on the ice.

- Forward Killi Petrov will join the Islanders next season.

- I can definitely see Matt Martin being in the Isles lineup for the 2010-2011 season.

- I also can see DP returning next season, but he probably wont play more then 15-20 games. (Just trust me on that)

- The Isles will most likely name a new captain. Likely candidates are Okposo, Striet, maybe Hunter.

-Jeff Tambellini will not be back next season. And that's a fact. He was scratched most of the season giving the hint that the Isles wont sign him again.

- The Isles as you know got rid of their home jerseys and will wear their royal blues next season and are working on making matching whites. It will get premiered when the Isles select their 5th overall pick.
