Islander-Sound Tiger Notables

Espn: Scott Burnside had a video update on the Islanders where he credits Scott Gordon's system, the players for buying in along with comments on goaltender Joey MacDonald and what the players have done with injuries.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I'm taken aback given the usual content from Mr Burnside ripping the club but he does an excellent job here talking about the recent record, how the vets are also preaching the system and noting the injuries.

Well done, keep em coming.

Espn: Damien Cox what on what he felt were the most memorable quotes of the year includes Rick DiPietro's back on 10/25 about his recent injury as a reason to again call out the Nassau Coliseum's age.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
This was only one part of a long article containing many quotes but at least Mr Cox points this is league policy.

We also now know DiPietro is out with a knee injury and will be out four-six week, a lot of clubs are not giving out less information with Mr Cox should have noted.

Where he lost me was comparing hockey to a high volume betting sport like football where there is a betting line and an injury report.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio did have a game article Wednesday with head coach Jack Capuano's comments after the win in San Antonio.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Without the Ct Post beatwriter on the Canada-Texas trip this was not much fun as it was during the clubs inaugural season. Hopefully the Post will allow him to be in Hershey for Saturday against a big division rival where he belongs.
