Newsday: Greg Logan's article was very interesting and far different than the title written by the person who wrote the headline. Ted Nolan talks about what his team must do and that the trades are up to the gm. Mike Comrie talks about how the club is going to have to win now and when pressed on his contract and resigning said he likes playing here. Bruno Gervais is questionable.

NY Post: Dan Martin's article has Mike Comrie and Ted Nolan's comments.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
First off folks, do not make the mistake of reading a headline titled:
" Nolan uses trade threats to motivate Islanders " and put that on Mr Logan, most papers have folks to write headlines beyond the writer and it's done to capture attention. As for Mike Comrie he correctly is more concerned with now and we'll see what the Isles think of him if he is here after the deadline if the club has not gone on a streak that will bring them into contention.

My take is contention or not they need Mike Comrie's offensive skills beyond this year and is a top six forward. My guesswork on him is he wants a place to finally call home and will sign an extension, but call that only my guess.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio has Jeremy Colliton's comments on his experience of playing in the NHL and updates the Sound Tigers sick/injured list which includes coach Jack Capuano and Kyle Okposo.

Bridgeport's next game is Wednesday so keep an eye on Utah first unless another call to Johnstown is made. Reports the Flyers recalled Kyle Greentree for the game against the Islanders.
