Saturday's Season Premiere of Hockey Night on Long Island was a spectacular way to get ready for hockey season. The episode featured special guest Scott Cullen of TSN.ca who provided some great insight into the upcoming Islanders season. Cullen spoke about new head coach Scott Gordon, the importance of Rick DiPietro, the several holes that the Isles need to fill, and of course the youth movement which will be a focal point for the Islanders this season. Cullen also took calls from listeners and gave his league-wide predictions and teams to beat. In his second HNLI appearance, Scott Cullen was once again phenomenal to talk to.
Hosts Alex and Steve also had their fair share of banter with even more callers and plenty of Isles talk. The guys covered DiPietro's fragility and workload, the battle for spots on defense, and much more.
