It's limited coverage like today on our team that really put me in the position of having to provide the Islander tv updates on the sidebar of this blog.
Newsday: Greg Logan has the recap of the Islanders win with comments from Ted Nolan, Ruslan Fedotenko and Trent Hunter.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Witt reportedly has a sprained knee which means they are likely to lose him for a while.
As for Newsday, the super bowl is over so what's the latest excuse for one article after an important game? Meanwhile Mr Zipay is already blogging for his team with more updates coming today from practice.
Of course many know sometimes Islander coverage is not even included in the city edition of the paper. This important game merited two articles. Of course Mr Logan recently has made his second articles about the opposition?
Daily News: Peter Botte recaps the Isles win with Ruslan Fedotenko, Jeff Tambellini and Trent Hunter's comments.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
I saw the story on Anders Kallur's sister a few days ago and did not even post it here but in a limited space article begging for more information and at least the coaches quoted comments Mr Botte includes it. Could be more but seems like Mr Botte wanted to get all his filler in for his short article and go home.
Do a seperate feature on Andy Kallur's sister, do not supplement it in an article that needed more hockey game coverage. We can bet the News will not be doing anything extra on the core of the four in early March or Andy Kallur.
Of course Leon Carver's sports department provided space for an article on a Hartford Wolfpack coach in the Daily News that was the same size as the Islander game update.
It only get's worse at the NY Post as Devils, Rangers articles are written for
off-day's but no Dan Martin/anyone covered last night's Islander home game. The Post even has an insulting poll asking what is your favorite NY championship team with the New Jersey Giants one of the choices but no Islander clubs.
Philadelphia Daily News Ed Moran & Philadelhia Inquirer: Tim Panaccio have the Flyer centric coverage who is critical of the Nassau Coliseum ice surface.
Phillyburbs.com: Wayne Fish also has coverage as does Rob Parent in the
Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio has a full recap on Brennan's suspension with player comments.
