Islander Friday Notables

Newsday: Greg Logan in the Islander Newsday blog gives his take as a former Arizona reporter with regard to the Glendale area development vs the Lighthouse.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

Seems everyone has a story on their version of what a Lighthouse project could look like with Howie Rose and Billy Jaffe talking about the area around Nationwide Arena (Columbus) when the Islanders played there recently.

More importantly Mr Logan reports Frans Nielsen has been skating, is on the roadtrip and could be close to returning. Trent Hunter is also on the trip.

Looks like Mr Logan's break means no Islander Insider from Newsday.

Point Blank: Mr Botta speculates Mike Sillinger being placed back in IR with his HIP injury could mean the end of his NHL career.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

We'll see, going back on IR for his hip is a terrible sign but we have no inside details or talk from the Islanders this could be it for him. Clearly Sillinger is hurting from playing by his comments but it remains to be seen if he can work through it or the pain he talked about is too much.

Games Islanders had Comrie, Sillinger, Weight healthy? One.
