Boston Globe: Fluto Shinzawa has a feature on Islanders head coach Scott Gordon with Doug Weight comments who likes playing for him:

He believes in accountability, which I think is what makes a team run. He's put a lot of responsibility on the veterans on this team to buy into that and buy into his system. He's been honest. He's been forthright. He's been very good to us.

Scott Gordon according to the writer wanted to get his Providence assistant Rob Murray to come here.

Patroit-Ledger: Bob Stern has a feature on Scott Gordon with the following from team captain Bill Guerin:

“He’s very passionate and he’s very detail oriented, but that’s what you need now,” said Guerin. “You need that in the game these days. The better coaches are the better-prepared coaches, and he’s definitely prepared for every practice, every game. He demands a lot out of us, and that’s what you want. You want a guy to push you.”

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Two Newspapers that actually see the big picture with the Islanders, noted the injures and the recent record. We almost never see this kind of reporting in the local papers, just a lot more on the blown leads.

This was the best team I saw the Islanders play to date.
