Islander Insider, Friday Notables

New York Islander Fan Central | 1/30/2009 06:27:00 PM | | |
Newsday: Greg Logan has the Islander Insider which featured Doug Weight's contribution, where the club stands now and what he wants to do in games to help the club win. The powerplay set up was discussed where head coach Scott Gordon also comments.

Also included is how the Islanders over the previous five games and two scoreless periods against the Thrashers allowed just 10 goals. Scott Gordon acknowledges he has adjusted his defensive system, Chris Campoli talks about the communication being better with the down low forward and limiting odd-man chances have made a difference.

Comrie did not react well when Reasoner beat Martinek on a goal as the down-low forward but was he center on that shift or a left wing?

Mr Logan reports more on Yann Danis becoming a father with more speculation on
what could be a quiet trade deadline for Garth Snow and what Charles Wang could do with the Lighthouse Project if it is not approved in due time given past real estate projects and next week's " Dad's Trip " which has been a tradition the past few seasons when the club heads to Florida.

Point Blank: Mr Botta had his best blog entry in two years providing the differences between Joe Torre and Al Arbour given recent events.

A second entry was written on Josh Bailey with his comments.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Call me an Islander homer on this but in all my years of following New York sports there has never been a management tandem come close to the level of class, dignity and humility combined with incredible success that Bill Torrey and Al Arbour brought to New York.

The Islanders set the standard of winning championships, those men set the standard for how two people can work together to build it.

ITV only has the post-game with C.J Papa's questions, not Mr Logan or another member of the media covering the game.
