A New Day

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

Good Morning Islander fans.  It's a new day.  Time to find out what the cosmos has in store for us.

By noon today, Trevor Gillies will find out his fate as he was put on waivers yesterday.  Now, the thing is -- I'm not sure if it was just supposed to be to get him back to Bridgeport or not.  I tried asking, but no one responded.  However their Twitter feed says:  Trevor Gillies has been placed on waivers. He has until noon tomorrow to clear and then be assigned.

Also on waivers yesterday to be recalled is Sean Avery who will be able to play on Thursday for the Rangers as we're pretty sure -- no other club will claim him.

Nino Niederreiter skated yesterday alongside Matt Moulson and PA Parenteau at practice.  Hmmmm... Interesting.  Also interesting was his choice of costume for the NY Islanders Sunday night family costume bash.  Nino and Mark Streit went as the Mario Brothers.

The winner of the costume contest had to be Matt Moulson who went as the Johnny Depp version of the Mad Hatter.  Not sure if his wife went as Alice.

Today the boys won't be so scary as they head to local schools to read to the kids.  Then it's back to the ice at 12:30 for practice.  Other developments will come from Art Staple or others as this week I am being held captive at the office learning new software.


Side note: Jiggs MacDonald spent an hour talking hockey around the NHL with us last night on NHLWeekly on Sportstalknetwork.com. It was a great show. I'll post the link as soon as I have it available.
