Newsday: Katie Strang had comments from senior vice president of sales, marketing and operations for the Islanders, Chris Dey about tomorrow's event.

Newsday: Katie Strang did a blog on tomorrow's meet and greet with the fans with her questions for the coach & general manager.

Vancouver Sun: Elliott Pap has a few words about the next possible general manager in Vancover and says in listing Neil Smith fifth that you need one strong voice to call the shots, not a committee like the Isles. Former Islander Steve Tambellini was listed fourth as the writer feels he deserves some blame for the current state of the Canucks.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I did not even know the Cauncks were going to change general managers?

You may need a strong voice to call the shots, having written that how come the writer did not include the same words about the Dallas Stars who also have a committee?

Edmonton Journal: Jim Mathewson reports on Alexander Ovechkin's response to Mike Milbury saying he was playing like a dog in an NBC game last weekend and that he did not even know he was the Islanders general manager.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Milbury better watch himself here. Dick Ebersol and Sam Flood want some controversy to sell these telecasts but if this comes down to a pecking order Mike Milbury rates far below one of the two franchise stars (Crosby-Ovechkin) they are marketing. He can get away with that on Jagr even with the Ranger media fan boys are annoyed but Crosby or Ovechkin can land him off NBC if he's not careful.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio had a blog late on Tuesday with some Sound Tiger related items.
