Islander/Sound Tiger Sunday Notables

New York Islander Fan Central | 10/12/2008 06:23:00 PM | | |
Newsday: Greg Logan had a blog update that attempted to update the roster injures and reported Joey MacDonald worked hard in practice and could start against Buffalo, he seemed to have some unconfirmed encouraging news on Mike Sillinger.

Mr Logan also clarified the rules on Josh Bailey's status that he can play his nine games at any point this season and also expanded more on Scott Gordon's comments from last night's article about Blake Comeau that he can work his way into the top six forward spot but first he has to work his way into the bottom six.

No injury statement/non-statement on Radek Martinek will come until Monday if at all.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
In short Josh Bailey may not be seeing Windsor until after the WJC if he is out for a good six-eight weeks or returns to play his nine games here before the tournament.

You can bet Windsor Spitfire gm Warren Rychel and coach Bob Boughner cannot be pleased with how this has turned out.

Regarding Blake Comeau it's best to read what Mr Logan wrote and what the coach said, too much room for misinterpretation in this.

Maybe the right way to go with these injury reports is to just give the projected time frame the player could miss that does not disclose the problem but does keep folks somewhat informed but given the media's treatment of the Islanders I'm siding with the club all the way on this regardless of how they go. Reports Bridgeport lost 2-1 in a shootout at Hartford Sunday afternoon. Andrew MacDonald scored the Sound Tigers goal, Peter Mannino had thirty four saves, Yann Danis was the backup.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
For those scoring at home that Andy McDonald of the Blues, Joey MacDonald of the Islanders and Andrew MacDonald of the Sound Tigers. When the Islanders and Blues meet in the Stanley Cup Finals this spring we will simply have to work around it.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio is blogging on Bridgeport at Hartford with lineups, no goaltender has been recalled at this time with Brett Skinner listed on the Sound Tiger defense.

Mr Fornabaio also added in the page change correction to the newspaper article that had some problems earlier for those who would like to read the full article on last night's Sound Tigers first win of the season in Albany.
