Newsday: Greg Logan has Rick DiPietro's comments about how more important than the result Monday was that he is healthy as he discussed playing last season with injury and talked about his stick-handling abilities.

NY Post: Dan Martin's limited space article is on Josh Bailey surviving the first round of roster cuts along with Chris Lee returning to New York
before being assigned to Bridgeport.

NY Times: Dave Caldwell attended Islander practice on Tuesday and had a full feature on head coach Scott Gordon with comments from general manager Garth Snow.

AP Reports Kyle McLaren was placed on waivers by the San Jose Sharks.

Plenty of NHL players still have to clear waivers. Bryan Trottier/Jamie Lundmark is back on the list for Calgary.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
So an article was done by the Times on Sunday and now on Tuesday. Are we going to see our next article tomorrow or by Christmas?

They don't attend the coaches press conference when he's hired but come out now, go figure it out because I simply cannot.
