NYI Fan Central Comments:

Only game all sesson I can recall Mr Logan getting quotes from the other coach, considering Kate Strang and Steve Zipay's Ranger centric articles the Islanders should have had a full article.

NY Post: May have Dan Martin's coverage but likely will go all Larry Brooks Ranger-centric with salesman Jay Greenberg's Ranger centric article.

Dan Martin was not dispatched the home team which is disgraceful if part time at best writer Greenberg was around who has been selling Msg teams more recently.
