NYI Fan Central Comments:
He's getting to the high quality area's of the ice and working to get in position, if he does this the goals and points will come. The chances have been and that's what you look for. Is Scott Gordon pushing his buttons? I have no idea but if he does not do these things he will play his own way out of this organization because he has had a lot of Islander coaches and enough chances.
