NYI Fan Central Comments:
What can I write about a training camp that virtually none of us got to see beyond a few video clips, it felt distant and sure it seems the coaches system is something a technically flawed club needed. Having written that the injury problems that have been a constant with so many of these players throught their careers are lingering.

New York Islanders lost four hundred plus man games to injury last season which led the NHL, it's not conicidence some players are breaking down even if Tambellini and Bergenheim have not been a part of that for the most part in their young careers.

As for Moncton no knock on the folks there, the New York Islanders need to hold camp on Long Island and in New York City to bring as much attention to the club as possible.

This is a New York team, time to tone down the Long Island mantra and connect with your fan base all over New York, that's how you sell tickets and market your product.
