• The deejay at the Islanders' new digs in Brooklyn: Pitchfork's Ryan Schreiber. He's already chosen Neutral Milk Hotel's "Communist Daughter" as the goal song. [Reddit]

• The Islanders' move to Brooklyn is upsetting to Denis Potvin. "The more I think about this, the more it makes me sad." [The Hockey News]

• Gary Bettman is also sad: "Unfortunately, an 82-game season does not seem to be a reality... [The] union has chosen not to engage." And after he put on a suit and got down on one knee... not cool, union. [Sporting News]

• Why the Edmonton Oilers should absolutely be interested in Roberto Luongo, and not just because he's old enough to buy them beer. [Edmonton Journal]

• Jeremy Roenick appeared on Costas Tonight Tuesday to talk lockout. Here he is on 2004-05: "Let's just go to brass dollars. I lost $8.5 million of money that I will never ever see again and I know nobody's crying in pity for me, but it's still money that's lost out of my pocket." [PHT]

• Ken Holland will be named Detroit's executive of the year. Said Holland: "I am the danger." Okay, no he didn't. He said, "I look on it as a Red Wings honor," which is way lamer. [Detroit Free Press]

• MSG Networks will be airing two KHL games this month: Dinamo Minsk versus Barys Astana on the 26th and SKA St. Petersburg vs. Dinamo Riga on October 31st. [@MSGNetworks]

• In other television news, in November, the Discovery Channel will begin running a documentary that focuses on advancements on science and technology in the NHL and it features shots from a super high-tech super slow-motion camera. I will be watching this. [Mediacaster]

• David Clarkson has signed with EC Red Bull Salzburg of the Austrian Hockey League. [Fire & Ice]

• David Staples has an issue with being fingerprinted to make sure he's not a sex offender before he coaches youth hockey. It is an inconvenience, although I'd argue so is being molested because no one checked to make sure your coach isn't a sex offender. [Ottawa Citizen]

• The best part of the Stanley Cup's visit to Disneyland: when Ron Artest ever asks if Mickey Mouse has touched the Stanley Cup, and he will, no one will have to disappoint him. [Disney Parks]

• Loui Eriksson's house is for sale for $2.5 million. It's the most underrated house in Dallas! [Pegasus News]

• Ryan Lambert: "If you can pick Sergei Kostitsyn out of a lineup, you are either the die-hardest Preds or Habs fan on the planet, or Andrei Kostitsyn." [Backhand Shelf]

• James Van Riemsdyk is considering playing in Finland. So am I, incidentally. [Toronto Sun]

• Malcolm Subban's spooky new goalie mask is pretty cool. [25 Stanley]

• Jay Feaster does not derive amusement from the fake Canucks season: "Calgary Flames' GM Jay Feaster somehow caught wind of the running gag (perhaps because the Province has run stories on it) and, well, gagged. Not long after the Canucks played the Flames in the fake opener, Feaster visited the Lower Mainland to watch the Abbotsford Heat play the Chicago Wolves and, amidst rumours that fake Roberto Luongo was going to be traded to the video game version of his team, he made it clear that he would have no part in the shenanigans. Vancouver media members were actually told up front — I'm not making this up — that he will absolutely not under any circumstances answers questions about the fake season." [Pass it to Bulis]

• Citing rising allowance costs, Gary Bettman locks his children out his his house. [Beaverton]

• BizNasty arrives at BioSteel Camp and the staff pretends not to know him. Best part: after he claims he plays for the Phoenix Coyotes, the lady checks, then says, "I have the last game they played, and you're not on the roster." Lovely.
