Canadian Press: Reports the situation in Thialand is growing increasingly worse at the airport with empty planes being flown out of the area. Has Jiggs McDonald's comments on a situation that only appears to be getting worse on every possible level.

Newsday: Greg Logan had Mike Comrie's comments on his HIP surgery and the expected time frame for recovery vs playing in Scott Gordon's system.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I wonder if the club knew how much he was hurting before they signed him just before the trade deadline? Within a few weeks he had to stop playing, obvious he was not very effective down the stretch.

His injury was much worse than reported given a time frame of November-January back in the summer.

Comrie has to be given a lot of credit for being ready to skate and play in camp given this information. No one is going to be able to play an effective game for long under those circumstances which somewhat explains Scott Gordon moving him to a wing.

At this point the only questions left are when will he not only return but be completely healthy? His offensive skills are something this roster absolutely needs.

Unfortunately Comrie's track record is that of a player who does not play eighty two games.

Windsor Star: Jim Parker had Josh Bailey's comments that he plans to be back often to visit his former club and hopes the Spitfires win a championship. General manager Warren Rychel said Islander gm Garth Snow called and thanked them for his development while Mr Rychel credited the Islander coaches and Bailey for going in and doing a great job earning a spot.

Bailey targeted March 27th when the Islanders visit Detroit as when he could be visitng Windsor.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Classy stuff from the Windsor general manager and a reflection of a first rate organization.
