Newsday: Mr Logan reports in the Islanders Newsday blog on Kyle Okposo maybe being selected to play for team USA at the World Championships and upcoming Olympic team with general manager Brian Burke and new head coach Ron Wilson who was recently names commenting along with Okposo.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I see no way Okposo will not be on team USA at the World Championships if he is healthy. The Islanders kept him off Bridgeport's clear-day playoff roster for this purpose so he has no other place to play.

Media blog: Corey Witt reports as usual Howie Rose will be missing more Islander hockey games with Jiggs McDonald filling it.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I love Jiggs McDonald calling our games and if it were up to me he could call eighty two games or pick any amount of games he wants. Having written that Howie Rose is this teams broadcaster and does absolutely nothing for this franchise but put them second for baseball at the beginning and now the end of season with him even taking time off during our season.

I would venture to guess he would never miss one inning of Met baseball because a lot of people would like his job.

I know Mr Rose and everyone connected to the telecast is Msg property, but it's time for the New York Islanders to request someone be hired who will be the eighty two game voice of this team and represent their brand on and off the ice. He's never going to pick the Islanders over the Mets.

Point Blank: Mr Botta reports from Islander practice with more players likely needed for Tuesday's game with new injuries, some players maybe returning and Dean McAmmond still unable to play with an illness that is approaching a week.
