Newsday: Mr Logan's article has comments from general manager Garth Snow about the trade deadline while the beatwriter speculates about the value of some players in trades vs their salary/possible return and reports a West Coast source says the gm is looking for additional draft picks in any package.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

The general managers comments are the only thing that matters here so let's just go with that.

"Some people think there will be lots of action on March 4, and others think there won't be much. Every team is in a different situation and has its own obstacles, whether it be a salary cap restriction or its internal budget. Any move this organization makes will be in our best interests for the future."

"People know our situation," Snow said. "We haven't had many calls until recently. I'm leery of whether there will be much action."

Newsday: Mr Logan in the Islanders Newsday blog had comments from Doug Weight's agent, Steve Bartlett about a contract extension in which the subject was mentioned but not discussed seriously but because of Weight's injury there is "no urgency" while according to the article Weight and his family have enjoyed Long Island and the New York Islanders organization.

Newsday: Mr Logan's second article was on Mitch Fritz with his comments about his callup. Sean Bergenheim's seven shot game was also noted.

What would a Sunday be without a cheapshot from the Post? Jay Greenberg's turn who barely covers hockey at all but tells us the Islanders are hockey's last stop in a recap of New York good guys and bad guys with Guerin getting some praise.

I guess times are tough for Mr Greenberg with Jason Blake and Rick DiPietro out of the picture who would usually make the bad guy list.
