Newsday: Greg Logan has speculation regarding Josh Bailey staying past Friday with comments from general manager Garth Snow, head coach Scott Gordon and Bailey who talks about the opportunity the Islanders have given him and how it's gone.

The Islanders head coach also credited his club for only taking three penalties against the Sabres.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Could be wrong but I think Snow's comments are a repeat from a few days ago. Headline
notwithstanding (which is not written by Mr Logan) we'll know by next Saturday.

Until then I will watch the games and count the votes here.

The Flint Journal: Bill Marshall had an excellent feature about the life of the late Don Morrow who is a 2008 inductee to the Greater Flint Area Sports Hall of Fame. The writer described him an ambassador in the sport of hockey who unfortunately passed away before he could see his one of his sons in Kenny Morrow win Olympic Gold and the Stanley Cup with the Islanders.

AP: Has an early preview of the game against the Canadians Monday and the Islanders recent struggles against them.

Mike Komisarek is out with an upper body injury after his recent fight with Milan Lucic and is expected to be out another four-five weeks. Pat Hickey in the Montreal Gazette here reports forward Guillaume Latendresse was scratched Saturday after an apparent shoulder injury against Ottawa Thursday.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio has coverage of Bridgeport's 4-2 win including comments from head coach Jack Capuano on Mike Sillinger and the game. Sillinger talked about his conditioning and his hip still being sore, Blake Comeau/Dustin Kohn also are quoted on their play.

Mr Fornabaio also had the boxscore and three stars/report card here.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
For those scoring at home Sillinger's three game conditioning stint ends Saturday against the Binghampton Senators. Josh Bailey's ninth game will be Friday in Boston with the Islanders home against Ottawa next Saturday.

Philadelphia Inquirer: Has the Phantoms coverage.
