Just got back from speaking with Islanders' General Manager Garth Snow. We learned that Jeff Tambellini (who by now must be feeling like a yo-yo) will be called up in the wake of the Simon move.
New defenseman Rob Davison is with the team and should play this evening.
When we asked about Kyle Okposo, Garth was noncommittal, but said he wouldn't be surprised to see Kyle in an Isles jersey "at some point." Keeping things open-ended, wouldn't you say?
Well, Isles skate with the new-look Penguins in about 2 1/2 hours...
