    You're talking about Hickey's comment about professionalism, right?

    Islanders Ready For Tough Training Camp

    Isles expecting a rigorous camp under Doug Weight

    By all accounts, too much time has passed since the New York Islanders were all together at Northwell Health Ice Center.

    For a season that ended in early April and one point shy of the playoffs, the start of training camp couldn't come soon enough and after 157 days, the Islanders gladly reported for the first day of training camp.

    "It's the start of a new year, it's exciting," John Tavares said after doing physicals and a media circuit. "For myself and my team there's a lot that we want to rebound from and get better from."

    A new year brings some new faces behind the bench and Head Coach Doug Weight has said it won't be business as usual when the on-ice portion of camp starts on Friday. Weight has promised a tough training camp and with new assistant coaches Luke Richardson, Kelly Buchberger, Scott Gomez, Fred Brathwaite and Chris Terreri on the team, there's a lot of new people to impress and new insights to be gained.

    "He's brought in a lot of people that he trusts and Doug's done his homework," Thomas Hickey said. "It's exciting, all the people that are here are going to be in line with his philosophy and the way that he wants to play and coach. It's very professional, not that it wasn't before, but it's a new look for us and guys are excited to get going."

    Yup, and it feels like this is a meaningful start.

    It's amazing, based on the poor PP I wanted Weight out along with Jack. But it sure seems like he was just being a good soldier, and has some VERY different ideas on how a team should be run. Some of you know that I'm always optimistic at this time of year. But this time I think there is better reason to be, it's a little more than just blind faith.
    Yep I feel the same way the only thing I would change is that I now think Doug was being an EXTREMELY good soldier!

    Jarome Iginla is not on the #Isles training camp roster, for those who have asked.
    Good

    #Isles vets now doing conditioning tests with full coaching staff on ice. Weight wants them ready out of the gate, this is first step.

    Maybe, just hope that opportunity isn't here.
