Slow And Steady
Islanders head coach Barry Trotz plans to ease his team back into the swing of things during training camp. The extensive time off means that plenty of guys are going to be rusty, but they have some time to get back up to speed.
“I think we have lots of time,” Trotz said on a Saturday teleconference via Newsday’s Andrew Gross. “You look at training camp. You have to cram in a lot. Our first exhibition game is usually the fourth day or fifth day of training camp. We’re going to have more time. We can slow it down a little bit. I think we’re going to get a lot of reps on the ice and I think every team going into the hub ready for the playoffs is going to be very prepared.”
