One more written entry, a final wrap of the draft with some articles I found that would not work on an audio entry.
Russian Prospects.com: has a profile of Islanders 4th round selection Anton Klementyev who there has been very little information on.
GopherHole.com: Has an interview with Andres Lee from November of 2008 where he will attend Notre Dame eventually (for 09-10 will be in USHL with Green Bay Gamblers) but his sport has yet to be determined between football and hockey, Lee is the Islanders 152nd pick in the 2009 Draft.
OHL.com: Has Casey Cizikas profile but Sportsnet.ca has a full interview with the Islanders fourth round selection from January where he came off a first half where he struggled.
It should be noted according to Mr Fornabaio back in April in a Ct Post entrythe Islanders-Sound Tigers had the following players who had to be qualified, some like Colliton went to Europe.
GROUP II (restricted, pending qualifying offer) -- Jeremy Colliton (V-320), Blake Comeau, Jamie Fraser, Jack Hillen, Nathan Lawson, Peter Mannino, Jason Pitton, Trevor Smith by this time which we have nothing official about from the team or the media.
It should be noted in our 3/5/09 articles Nate Lawson discussed the new contract he signed with the Islanders at the trade deadline here/not available and here which still is that replaced his AHL contract signed last summer. Lawson at the time was leading the AHL in save percentage (.938) and second in goals-against average (1.81).
How can someone be a group II free agent on an April list who was resigned in March?
So far Newsday or the Ct Post has had nothing on who Garth Snow issued a qualifying offer to for those wondering while many newspapers covering their teams have.
