Newsday: Greg Logan has an interview with Trent Hunter where he talks about how he can help the club in the corners setting up the young wingers with their speed and skill along with how he has to give the club more goals while head coach Scott Gordon discusses a possible line of Tambellini-Nielsen-Hunter.

Mr Logan also had a few words on the doctors making a decision on Rick DiPietro when the club returns to New York.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Despite Trent Hunter's high assist total he has to find the net for this club and do the work in the corners along with the defense he is outstanding at. Asking a lot but this player can score and do these things and is in the prime of his career.

Sure the defensive system under Ted Nolan may be an issue but the team needed to play that kind of system to make up for the speed and skill.

Mr Botta felt DiPietro if he can play will do so the last two preseason game and has the early lineup for Saturday's game on PEI against Florida.
