Here's the scoop from the Isles website.
While there will surely be a lot of excitement surrounding Kyle's debut, the nice thing is that the pressure surrounding him should dissipate quickly as the Isles are no longer fighting for the playoffs. It will be a nice sneak preview to the future of the franchise, and if he doesn't score a point per game, who cares?
Stamkos Watch: The Isles were blanked last night 3-0 by the Habs. Unfortunately, the Blues also lost, meaning the Isles remain in 26th place. Of note, it appears the Lightning have stepped up their game a little bit as the other cellar dwellers continue to lose games, which could put 29th place into play for the Isles. 30th place appears to be too difficult, with the Kings 9 points behind the Isles. Remember though, as long as the Isles finish 26th or lower, they will be in the Stamkos Sweepstakes.
Yes, it has come to this.
