The pregame will post here around 10am in a new entry. I will not be updating the news articles tomorrow or the pregame entry.
Newsday: Roderick Boone covered Islander practice with Bill Guerin's comments on losing Doug Weight and all the injuries. More line change speculation with head coach Scott Gordon who had a few words on Jon Sim's opportunity who could slot next to Mike Comrie back at center with Bill Guerin on the right.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
If writer speculation is correct Blake Comeau goes to right wing which was a problem for him last year under Ted Nolan with Josh Bailey while Andy Hilbert stays on left wing.
Jon Sim-Mike Comrie-Bill Guerin.
Sean Bergenheim-Frans Nielsen-Kyle Okposo.
Andy Hilbert-Josh Bailey-Tim Jackman.
Jeff Tambellini-Richard Park-Blake Comeau.

Phantom coverage usually is all AP on the road with Daily News/Inquirer combined papers here terrible news is the club was sold and will no longer play in Philadelphia with Spectrum sold and scheduled for demolition.
