The New York Islanders confirmed the passing of their legendary coach Al Arbour today. He was 82 years old and had been battling a long illness.

“Al will always be remembered as one of, if not, the greatest coaches ever to stand behind a bench in the history of the National Hockey League,” Islanders president and general manager Garth Snow said. “The New York Islanders franchise has four Stanley Cups to its name, thanks in large part to Al’s incredible efforts.”

New York Islanders Media Day

All is quiet on the Islanders’ front, with nothing new happening after the buzz of the Ice Girls leaving from yesterday. Hockey news is where it typically is during August, and although the lull will be coming to an end soon, it has been a grueling process.

We are 42 days away from Opening Night in Brooklyn, and inching closer and closer to training camp. There is a visible light at the end of the offseason tunnel, and with training camp and preseason coming, that should make the last bit of waiting much, much easier.

Jersey advertisements long been looked at as an imminent, yet slow approaching alternative for the NHL to use. The “threat”, which once was nothing but a distant thought, became legitimized after the American Hockey League began to integrate ads on their jerseys.

And with Adidas replacing Reebok as makers of jerseys beginning in 2017, ads look to be on the way.

Islanders A to Z for PuckDaddy

7th Woman's picture

Yeah, yeah.  So you thought I was dead.  You're not that lucky.  Took a break for awhile, but then I was asked to do a comprehensive "A to Z" about the Islanders and thought -- What the hell.  It took me three days, but I didn't mention Jason Blake once... Not once.  Not under "B" for Blake or "J" for Jason.  And those who know me from the start know why this is so surprising.

So my idea of what every NHL fan should know about the NY Islanders.... sort of...Here at Yahoo Sports.

After a successful 2014-15 season, one would expect ticket prices to increase for the New York Islanders. The team was as competitive as it has been since the beginning of the 2000’s, and was playing at a level that brought fans in on a nightly basis. The Isles were in high demand, and people were showing up in the masses to watch them play.

A year ago, your average hockey fan may not have even known Nick Leddy played in the NHL. He was a young defenseman coming off a season where he was buried on a championship caliber Chicago Blackhawks roster, struggling to get the playing time (16:22 ATOI/PG) and recognition he deserved.

A lot can change in a year.

Erie Otters v Oshawa Generals - Game Five

Islanders’ fans were reminded of the depth the organization has when ESPN’s Corey Pronman released his Top 100 Prospects for the 2015-16 season. Six Islanders’ draft picks made the list and the article served as a nice tribute to Garth Snow and how he has handled the last two NHL Entry Drafts.

Center Mathew Barzal is the highest ranked Islanders prospect on the list at 13. Pronman seems pretty high on the 16th pick from this year’s draft:
