from John Kreiser of NHL.com,
Q: Is it tough sometimes competing with those four Stanley Cup championship banners hanging from the roof?
GS: It’s a situation where we know there’s a great history with the Islanders. Clark Gillies came in and talked to our prospects during the week and shared some of his stories from living right here on Long Island and winning on Long Island. The message he had for the players is that when they had that success, what those championship teams had was playing for each other—no one player is bigger than the team. That was a great message from Clark to our prospects.
Q: You still have some money to spend to get to the floor. What are you looking for?
GS: We’re looking for players who can help us get to the next level. We have plenty of time before the season starts, and we’re exploring all avenues to boost our lineup.
