Thursday: 1pm vs Boston Bruins rookies

Updated 8pm:
Newsday: Mark Herrmann after making sure to let the public know expectations are low for the club now and in the immediate future has comments from Kyle Okposo about what he is looking to do this season along with Bryan Trottier who coached the Islanders 2006 first round selection at a teen select camp in Minnesota when he was fifteen years old according to Mr Herrmann. Okposo did not practice with the rookies but worked out with the veterans and had a few words with team owner Charles Wang.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Mr Herrmann is entitled to his opinion but Scott Gordon, Bill Guerin, Doug Weight and Garth Snow disagree about the expectations. Only time will tell if the New York Islanders will parade down the Canyon of Hero's where they belong next June but if Philadelphia can go from 30th to the conference finals it's fair to say any club can turn things around quickly.

Okposo is obviously part of the long-term answer.
