I have an observation I'd like to share. It comes from years of hanging out on the perimeter of the GM's office at the Coliseum during the first week of July.
I'm not saying the Islanders will announce another signing tonight, but I can tell you this:
When the team signs a player to a five-year, $20-million contract and Garth doesn't even have two minutes to do an interview with Islanders-owned ITV, sending out chief pro scout Kenny Morrow instead, it only means one thing.
At 10:15 pm, the store is still very much open.
