Newsday: Mr Logan is reporting in Newsday's blog an announcement is expected to come after practice on the Islanders regarding first round pick Josh Bailey which speculation suggest is the club signing him to an entry level contact. Mr Botta's Point Blank blog outright says he will be signed here as he blogged on weeks ago.
Mr Logan also had a few strong words on the teams injury policy.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
No small thing with a player signing his first professional contract, congratulations to Josh Bailey.
Now we see if he can do enough to stay here for year one, this buys the Islanders the first nine games after which time he goes back to Windsor or he stays in New York all season.
No middle ground on this beyond playing in the WJC, he cannot play for Bridgeport, for now I guess we wait and see if he is healthy enough to play some games.
Islanders website: Announce the signing of Josh Bailey to a three year entry level contract with his comments along with general manager Garth Snow and head coach Scott Gordon.
ITV has several inteviews including the press conference.
