    Josh Bailey was drafted with the 9th pick in the 2008 NHL entry draft. Crazy to think that this coming June, it will be 10 years since that moment. Looking back to that time, it wasn't exactly an ideally situation. The islanders had the 5th overall pick going into that draft. They would trade that to the leafs and swipe first round picks. The isles would move back to the 7th pick which was then moved to Nashville and they would end up picking Bailey with the 9th overall pick. 10 years after there

Training camps around the league will all be opening for business, with the first on-ice sessions slated to begin Friday morning. For the New York Islanders, it seems every year lately has been ‘make or break’, for a variety of reasons.

Last season, it wasn’t quite good enough for some that Josh Bailey combined with Tavares and rapidly improving Anders Lee to forge a line that combined for 75 goals, 31% of the team’s overall production, and 174 points. This year, through 13 games, it’s even higher at 48%. ‘He’ll regress’, they said. ‘He will come back down to earth and be
