A few notes from today:

As difficult as today’s skate was several players that spoke with newyorkislanders.com said they felt great and were happy to get through it.

PA Parenteau, who skated in the second group arrived a bit early and watched some of what was in store. He joked that he wished he didn’t watch it.

“Now it’s all said and done,” he said. “We got through this today, and makes the group even tighter.”

As far as how he feels physically?

“I feel great. I feel unbelieveable. I’m ready to go. I’m looking forward to the season.”

Evgeni Nabokov talked about being ready for camp as well.

He talked about being in practice shape, as opposed to game shape. That being said, how did he feel today?

"I feel pretty good. Nothing is bothering me. Everything is good."

And both players were smiling. A sure sign that Jack Capuano's tough testing was worth it.

The Islanders two most prolific Tweeters, Matt Moulson and Michael Grabner shared their feelings with tweets:

From @MMoulson: Probably hardest training camp day in my 6 years of pro...no messing around this year

From @Grabs40: Glad the first day off fitness testing is over..one down one to go..boys look strong and in great shape.. #seasonstart

Tough day on ice with testing and everything,glad it's over-but the guys battled hard and put a solid effort in #recoverytime #trainingcamp

After both groups skated a grueling program at Islanders Iceworks in Syosset today, Islanders head coach Jack Capuano spoke to the media.

"I thought the first day went well," Capuano said. "Both groups went and out and skated hard and did exactly what we wanted them to do. We did what we wanted to do today as a coaching staff...I was pleased with the first day."

The days' activities mostly consisted of a skating intensive drills.

"This camp is going to be physically demanding right from the start," Capuano said.  "It will seperate the men from the boys as we figure out who is going to be in our lineup October 8."

With all the players on the ice for the first time, Capuano said he did not look at individual players.

"It's day-by-day," Capuano said. "Once we give them a little bit of the structure we want, as we get into the exhibition games, we'll learn more about the guys.

He also provided an update on some injuries:
Mark Katic has a left dislocated shoulder and will have surgery.
Rhett Rakhshani is out indefinitely with a concussion.
Marty Reasoner did not skate today due to a knee strain.
