Islander News Articles 11/11:















Newsday: Greg Logan has the coverage on Islanders 2-1 win over the Devils Saturday with comments from Satan, Devils coach Brent Sutter

"It's the first time I've been in that position on the power play this season," Satan said. "Those are plays I'm used to. It felt like my office. I was very comfortable there, so it wasn't that hard. I'm sure everybody would like to be there, and I'm no exception. That's the fun time to be out there.

"We passed it around for awhile and heard some impatient noise from the crowd, but it worked out perfectly. It came right to me."


Newsday: Logan also had an article on Freddy Meyer claimed on re-entry waivers, an injury update and more from Satan on his sticks.

NY Times: Dave Caldwell makes a rare Coliseum appearance to cover both sides where Brodeur, Satan and Brent Sutter are quoted. Brodeur did not get his five hundredth win Saturday.

“Whether it’s legitimate or not, it’s still a 1-1 game at the time,” Sutter said. “It’s tough. You can’t lose hockey games that way.”


NY Post: Devils beat writer Mark Everson covered the game for both sides at the Post with comments from Rick DiPietro and several players.

"We didn't panic. We got that power play and we capitalized. We had to be equally patient as the Devils tonight," Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro said. "We're playing well and getting consistent effort."

"It was a [bleeping] terrible call. There's no way around it," the Devils' Zach Parise said.

"I don't think he needed to call that," Jay Pandolfo said


Daily News: Peter Botte provided coverage of the Islanders win with quotes from Satan, Brodeur and Sutter, a brief update on Bill Guerin is given.

Newark Star Ledger Jeremy Cothran & Noth Jersey.com/Bergen Record: Tom Gulitti has the Devils centric coverage on Satuday's game.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio's article is centered around the teams toughness and how it's an element the Sound Tigers lacked last season.

Ottawa Sun: Bruce Garrioch in his weekly rumors section (which is extensive) mentions the writer this summer Adam Proteau of THN callling the Fedntenko signing the worst of all free agent signings and brings up his production as proof the Islanders must be satisfied. Garrioch also claims sources say general manager Garth Snow is quietly working on a long-term extension for Fedotenko.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Don't read too much into Garrioch rumors or speculation folks, even if it's potentially good news. Garrioch puts countless rumors from sources in his weekly article and most are not true.

Don't worry gang Newsday has a Sunday writer to address NHL features like this.

Forgot, it's Ranger beatwriter Steve Zipay who mostly provides Ranger centric information in the Islanders primary paper.

  1. I love the way the Tank is playing and it would be nice to lock him up for a few more years.

    Hope Garrioch gets one right for a change...

  2. Hi JKP,

    He's off to a great start. If in continues he's going to want a big bump in salary unless he really think's he had found a home here and respects how the Islanders went out of their way to overpay him last summmer and takes less for a longer term deal.

    When the rumor reaches the local paper then it's more of a story, but for now it's just a Garrioch rumor in a paper where he does a lot of speculating with his sources.
