Islander/Sound Tiger notables

New York Islander Fan Central | 1/12/2008 05:23:00 PM | | |
Quiet day on the notables front in terms of the Isles but hopefully a big crowd for Okposo's home debut tonight. For all the criticism I put at Newsday I'm impressed they assigned a writer to cover his early games and made the trip to Binghampton.

Of course what they need long-term is to make a deal with the Ct Post to feature Michael Fornabaio's work as they do with the Hartford Courant.

Newsday:Evan Drellich who is covering Kyle Okposo for the paper had a blog this afternoon on Kyle Okposo were his debut was discussed with Jeff Tambellini's comments.

Sound Tigers website: Previews Bridgeport's home game tonight vs Falcons in Kyle Okposo's home debut.

National Post/several sources: Report Carolina again recalled Brandon Nolan so Ted Nolan may coach against his son in a few weeks when the Isles have a home and home with Carolina.

Media blog: Cory Witt reported the Islanders got to their hotel at 6am after leaving the Saddledome at 10:20pm.
