Islanders website: Announced late Saturday night they will play the Vancouver Canucks in a pre-season game in in Terrace, British Columbia, on September 14th with general manager Garth Snow's comments.

Terrace edged out more than 7,100 entries and joins previous Kraft Hockeyville winners Roberval, QC (2008); North Bay, ON (2007); and Salmon River, NS (2006).

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Those who recall the Islanders played in the North Bay game in 2007. I sure would like to see some local games announced around New York for this team.

Newsday: Greg Logan's game coverage Sean Bergenheim, Kyle Okopso, Brent Sutter recaps New York's 7-3 win against the Devils with Trent Hunter's season ending broken ankle here.

NY Post: Mark Everson's Devil centric article included one sentence from Scott Gordon to cover the Islanders side. Jay Greenberg showed up and did an article with the usual negative theme on the Devils.

No Islander centric coverage or article for their home game.

Newsday: Eden Laikin in an article on the Lighthouse specifics again claims Wang's threat to not sign a new lease is buried deep within a portion of the report that surfaced last week was a not-so-subtle ultimatum by Wang.

Town officials have until April 28 to decide whether answers are enough on the documents submitted by Lighthouse Group, and whether the plans are ready for state and county review.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Maybe Eden Laikin only read the documents last week but even hockey fans could go right to the Lighthouse site and read what was not buried deep within a portion of the report that was submitted at the meeting and is very misleading to be called an ultimatum.

I read this as soon as it was posted on the Lighthouse website, it was not discovered last week.

Daily News: Peter Botte's coverage had more Devils quotes and content while Bergenheim received a quick paragraph with nothing from head coach Scott Gordon.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

Almost a waste of our time putting up the links to this content if the best we can get is a paragraph from the home team. At least when PA Sportsticker recap is there we actually receive a descent sized article.
