Calling The Maven

from Stan Fischler of Game On,

It isn’t often that I get a phone call from Martin Biron.

Actually, over a half-century of covering hockey I’ve never received a buzz on the buzzer from any NHL goalie; at least not out of the blue like this one….

Biron-Roloson will open the campaign, and if I were to turn Marty’s feelings into a hit song, it would be “That’s Quite Alright With Me.”

Or, to put it directly into his final words before our conversation concluded: “I like the way the (young) Islanders are shaping up. When I was with the Flyers, the Islanders always gave us trouble; always hustled; always worked. Last year, with all their injuries and whatnot, they’d lose games by a goal. With our goaltending now, and a healthy team, we could be winning those games by a goal. This is going to be a fun season for me.”
