Saturday’s trade gives the Islanders roughly $9 million in cap space

His last season in Brooklyn with the Islanders was a difficult one, though, for Hamonic. Injuries limited him to only 49 games played, and he struggled with his on-ice play even when healthy. However, he has been a respected, solid player, and a strong locker room presence, the past seven seasons for the Islanders.

“I couldn’t be more excited, it’s a young team, but a good team” said Hamonic, who earlier this week was recognized for his extensive charitable work off the ice, being named the NHL Foundation Award recipient. “You want to surround yourself with great players. That’s a huge part of the excitement.”

Newsday reported that the Islanders turned down a previous offer by Toronto this weekend that would have seen winger James van Riemsdyk traded to New York as part of a deal for Hamonic.

Saturday’s trade gives the Islanders roughly $9 million in cap space, as well as draft pick assets to possibly trade to bolster the current roster.

Joe Girardi says Yankees are afraid to turn Masahiro Tanaka into Spider-Man

The Yankees’ No. 1 starter is pitching to a 6.56 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP this season. He has given up 16 runs over his past two starts and has lasted a combined 4 2/3 innings in those games.

Much was made about Tanaka’s health in 2014, when he was shut down with a partial UCL tear in his right elbow. He rehabbed the injury and has been pitching with the tear since.

There are worse things than being turned into a superhero.

Tuesday night’s Braves-Pirates game at SunTrust Park was disrupted briefly when an emergency stadium-evacuation message briefly flashed on the scoreboard, accompanied by a loud alarm and flashing lights, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The incident occurred in the third inning, with the scoreboard message indicating that an emergency had been reported in the new stadium. The message disappeared from the scoreboard shortly thereafter, but not before a few fans began to exit their seats.

With continuing injuries but a relatively long career, say 15 to 20 seasons — which seems perfectly reasonable with Harper debuting as young as he did — Harper might wind up in roughly the same territory as Dunn, Kingman or Delgado. This will doom his Hall of Fame chances. Dunn last played in 2014 and isn’t yet eligible with the BBWAA, but Kingman and Delgado each lasted just one year on the ballot.

The best that can be said for candidates such as Dunn, Kingman and Delgado (particularly Delgado, among the most underrated players in baseball history) is they have their supporters. But then, many fringe Hall of Fame candidates have supporters on the internet. There are 50 or 100 retired players, maybe more, who can garner blog posts and occasional news columns, though they don’t have much hope of getting in. Such is the Hall of Fame, which keeps out so many more good players than it lets in.
