Yesterday brought hockey fans two NHL related press conferences. Unfortunately, neither had to do with a possible end to the lockout. The first presser was the announcement of John Davidson's hiring in Columbus. The second was Charles Wang, Gary Bettman, and several NY politicos telling everyone the Islanders will be moving to Brooklyn in 3 years. Just in time for the end of the lockout! In Coyotes related news, their AHL and ECHL affiliates both shut out their opponents last night. Details in the links.
