Newsday: Mark Herrmann covered practice Monday had Ted Nolan, Freddy Meyer, Mike Comrie's comments about how the club must pull together here and his own speculation about how important the upcoming games are.
NYI Fan Central Commments:
Islanders may as well be playing Florida again tonight for all the indifference the local and city media have for hockey in the New York market today. Just no time or room in the baseball dominated media any longer for a niche sport.
Big business baseball in the newspapers now with the competition between writers and papers for advertising dollars critial.
A lot more critical than the games themselves.
Philadelphia Daily News: Ed Moran reports Flyers defenseman Derian Hatcher could play Saturday against the Islanders.
Edmonton Journal: Joanne Ireland has an updated on how well Robert Nilsson is doing recently.
Star.com: Damien Cox reports former Islander Chris Simon has started a blog to reach out to the Minnesota Wild fans at the Wild gm's request because of the strong negative response the trade has received.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
You think Mr Cox would at least provide a link after going to all this trouble to write an article he is blogging?
Here is the link to Chris Simon's interview with Chris Snow here. Tough to tell if this is in fact a blog or a one time article.
