Sunday tidbits


A couple of tidbits for the last Sunday of July.

*NHL.com has been looking at the offseason moves division-by-division. This weekend the focus was on the Pacific. We already know what the Stars did, but it's worth a read for the recap of what the rest of the division has done so far this summer. You can read it here. There's a also an offseason recap for the Central Division and Northwest Division.

*There's a big vote tomorrow in Nassau County, NY, where voters will give a thumbs up or thumbs down on a referendum to build a new arena for the New York Islanders. The Islanders' current lease with the outdated Nassau Coliseum runs out after the 2014-15 season, and without a new building the belief is the Islanders would be moving somewhere else. Monday's referendum, if passed, would be just a first step. Good read on the issue here.
