Islander Notables Day Five in Moncton

New York Islander Fan Central | 9/24/2008 02:47:00 PM | | | |
Islanders website: Has a preview of tonight's prospect game against University of New Brunswick in Fredericton as Rob Hennigar returns to face his former team. Camp notes from Wednesday include comments from Sound Tigers head coach Jack Capuano who will be behind the bench for tonight's game, Director of Pro Scouting Ken Morrow and Kurtis McLean.

Islanders also have an article on Doug Weight here.

Quick Hits:
Mr Allen in his responses taught me a lot the other day and just did a great job when he wrote the media writes about what the fans want to know about.

* Sure would be nice if we were told by the team why Steve Mears and Billy Jaffe called a game our fans wanted to watch but could only see a three minute video from?

If Mr Botta wants to impress me with his new blog that should be written about on the first day. He's the former v.p of communications, please tell our fans why we cannot watch our team play games on television just as you told us Ted Nolan was not getting along with upper managment.

I could sit here and blame a lot of folks (starting with Cablevision who will take over Newark tonight only to showcase the house team) but I think if we can get live video from the Islanders website during the lottery and the draft we should be able to watch our team play live hockey games from virtually anywhere or receive an explanation.

As for the game if you want me to write how someone played or looked based on a few blogs and a three minute video I would not be doing a very honest job for you here because I do not know. It's fair to write a few combinations are a good bet to open the season together (Witt-Martinek) but that's about it.

* I find it kind of fascinating Blues President John Davidson gets another full pass for his players antics to the point Mike Brophy in THN feels sorry for him because he does a good job speaking to the media now that Erik Johnson injured himself on a golf course and will miss the entire season.

I guarantee if this happened with Josh Bailey, Kyle Okposo or Rick DiPietro, Garth Snow would not be getting such soft treatment from the media considering the Blues brutal record under Mr Davidson where they have not been in playoff contention unlike New York and have imported a high priced bust so far in Paul Kariya.
