Newsday Friday article is a feature on new defender Andy Sutton here.

"We had plenty of offers," Sutton said of the signing process. "I was really holding out to get things right with the Islanders . . . This is a team on the up-and-up and making a lot of changes for the good. I really liked where the organization was going. It was a no-brainer for me."

"It will be great," Sutton said. "I've always loved playing with goalies that like to play the puck. With the new rules and the way guys chip [the puck in] and you can't rub them out or get in the way much anymore, having a goalie like that is so valuable. Ricky's so good with it, I just have to get open and give him an outlet and talk to him. There's really not much of an adjustment."

"Everything has been so top-notch," Sutton said. "Players around the league should really know that the New York Islanders are making changes, and they're a very solid franchise."
