Training camp opens on Friday, and we promise we're going to have some real news and more frequent updates once the ball (puck?) gets rolling. Until then, we're pleased to report that our good friend, mentor, and Blogfather Chris Botta is officially back in the fold! While his many loyal readers have been checking his informative site all summer, he'll once again be featured as an Islanders blogger beginning September 25th.
This is great news, because as a former Islanders insider he has been able to bring the public stories and angles that you just will not find anywhere else. His league connections and status allow him to provide a unique insight into the workings of the organization, and moreover he conveys his thoughts clearly on even the toughest hockey subjects. For that, we say welcome back, Chris.
