The New York Islanders paid a premium price to acquire 37-year-old defenseman Andy Greene from the New Jersey Devils at the trade deadline, sending the Devils their 2021 second-round pick. However, with the NHL hiatus in place, the Islanders have gotten only 10 games from the veteran blueliner.

Report: NCAA could consider playing college football season in the summer

  Report: NCAA could consider playing college football season in the summer The thinking is that warmer summer weather may help slow the spread of the virus, particularly as some experts have warned that we could see a resurgence next winter as temperatures turn cooler again. There are many logistical issues that would arise as a result of this idea. Stadiums would need to be staffed, media partners would need to approve, and there’s no guarantee fans could even attend the games. It speaks to the fears about a regularly scheduled season, however, that this is even being tossed around. Some in the know do not think the season can go ahead as scheduled.

The New York Islanders acquired New Jersey Devils captain Andy Greene on Sunday in exchange for David Quenneville and a He has two goals and nine assists and a plus-1 rating in 53 games this season . The Islanders already play a defensive style under coach Barry Trotz, which has led to

The Devils traded Greene to the Islanders in exchange for David Quenneville and a 2021 second-round pick Sunday. Greene is a stay-at-home defenseman with just 11 points through 53 games , and the left-handed blueliner has an unimpressive 43.7 Corsi For percentage this season .

While that doesn’t necessarily mean that Greene, an unrestricted free agent this offseason, would return to the Islanders next season, at least it’s still a possibility. In his 14th season in the league, Greene has two goals, 14 points and 155 blocked shots in 63 games.

  • If the NHL decides to go with a playoff system with more than the standard 16 games, the Vegas Golden Knights would receive a bye in the first round as they are the No. 1 seed in the Pacific Division. However, head coach Peter DeBoer suggested recently, via SinBin’s Ken Boehlke, that he isn’t enamored with that idea and would not be interested in a bye for his team. “I don’t want to be the team with the bye, sitting there after being off for a month or two months or three months, having teams play two-out-of-threes and play-in games while you’re sitting there. There’s a huge advantage to having actually played games. I know the bye sounds like an advantage. And it is an advantage if you’ve been playing an entire 82-game season and you roll into that and you have 10 days to prepare for the next round. But when you’ve been sitting around for months, it’s a disadvantage. From a fairness point of view, that would be a concern for me.”
  • Once considered to be a future franchise piece to the Flyers' defense, Philadelphia defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere has struggled for two straight years, which includes a five-goal, 12-point season last year in 42 games. While there was talk that Gostisbehere could have been a trade candidate at the trade deadline, Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sam Carchidi writes that it’s extremely likely that he will be traded within the next year due to the expansion draft in 2021. With the Flyers likely to protect only three defensemen, it’s a lock that they will be Ivan Provorov, Travis Sanheim and Philippe Myers, leaving Gostisbehere available to Seattle. However, the scribe believes that Philadelphia is more likely to trade him rather than just hand him over to Seattle for nothing.
