James Wisniewski visits LI and talks upcoming season

 Newest Islanders defenseman, 26-year-old James Wisniewski, flew in with his wife Tuesday night for a two-day visit to Long Island.

The recently-wed couple (Wisniewski had returned from his honeymoon in Maui/Figi only four days prior to last week's trade) planned on scouring the area Wednesday to look for places to set up shop with their two dogs.

But before they set out for their real-estate rendez-vous and night on the town in Manhattan, Wisniewski paid a visit to Nassau Coliseum to meet with general manager Garth Snow and work out with team strength and conditioning coach Jesse Demers. Afterwards, he took some time to speak about the upcoming season. Read that here.

*Also saw d-man Radek Martinek and Russian prospect Kirill Kabanov in the hallways of NVMC. Martinek said his knee feels great and seemed to be in great spirits. Kabanov, who has remained on LI since prospect camp, said he's been diligent in his off-season regimen, working out hard every day and going home early every night to read and get a good night's rest. Sounds like he is really making the most with the second chance the Islanders have provided him.
