  1. This is pretty cool.

    I think it might be helpful to run a few games from the Islanders.

    Since he’s considered a major off-season target, it would be good to see Hamonic’s advanced stats over a couple of games.

    It will be a small sample size, but given the importance of these games, we can see how he plays in a pressure environment.
