NYI Fan Central Comments:
So much for the days of four games in five days and only five total pre-season games that really hurt any prospects chances beyond practice and scrimmage. Isles set themselves up for a lot of games and a lot more opportunity to give prospects a chance. Do not recall any Montreal or Atlanta pre-season games in the past.
