Why Scott Mayfield likes the Islanders title opportunity if the game continues

As Islanders began the third week of voluntary small group training and began to imagine teams with the full strength they could bring to the NHL 24 team tournament, there was still thought left that it might not produce results.

But it is difficult for Islanders to stop looking forward to Phase 4 of the NHL “Return-To-Play” plan, the start of the match in “hub cities,” given the projected team they have more complete than it was before the coronavirus pandemic closed the regular season 2019-20 more than three months ago.

For defender Scott Mayfield, skating next to Adam Pelech – who is expected to be sidelined throughout the season due to an Achilles injury – has strengthened his faith in what Islander can have if the league really achieves plans to restart.

Mayfield and Pelech skated together in Group 2 for Phase 2 Islanders skating, in which Devon Toews, Noah Dobson and Thomas Hickey also participated. Netminder Bridgeport Chris Dobson is also in Group 2.

“I think the layout we have, any team can win it,” Mayfield said in a Zoom call with reporters Monday afternoon. “We have an equally good opportunity, if not better, than anyone. We have healthy people and I hope we can come back and play.

“I know there are many things that must be solved, I know this is a financial obligation, that’s a health reason, there are so many boxes that need to be checked.”

The Islanders will also get back Johnny Boychuk, who missed the last three matches before the season was stopped after taking skates to a face that needed 90 stitches.

But after reports from the Tampa Bay Lightning closed their facilities over the weekend because of the many cases of the virus, there was a slight sense of worry that arose among several islanders.

“Over the weekend I thought there might be a bit of concern that arises in people’s minds,” Mayfield said.

Mayfield notes that he hasn’t been able to talk to every player on the team to find out how everyone feels, but it seems that some players are paying attention to the news and rather “changing” their views on the matter.

However, Phase 2 continues even though the NHL revealed in a statement Friday that 11 players of “excess 200” who have undergone several rounds of testing have tested positive for COVID-19.

The 27-year-old defender said that his team had taken extreme precautions to combat the contraction of the corona virus. For example, etiquette in the weight room has changed because players make sure not to pass the same burden around or look at each other to make sure they keep their distance.

Monday is also the first day coaches are allowed on the ice with the players. Mayfield said that Islanders assistant coach Jim Heller was on the ice with them.

Mayfield admitted that the last few weeks had been a “roller coaster” for him, trying to navigate a new routine while also keeping his focus to get back in shape. He believes if the league is able to continue the restart tournament, it will be a “mind test” to see who can get rid of the disruption and win the Stanley Cup.

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
