Final Tune Up

Monday night's (10/6) tilt versus Florida will be the final preseason game for the '08-'09 Islanders. While the game may be a last chance for some borderline Islanders to make good impressions on the coaching staff before the roster is set, you know, we know, and Kyle himself knows that he'll be with the big club come next week. For him the game is virtually meaningless. In fact, we can assure everyone that Kyle went directly to bed right after the team plane landed in Fort Lauderdale around 10 PM on Sunday (the computers in the Okposo Net underground lair can track up to 60 simultaneous Islander player movements, FYI). Kyle certainly has no interest in cavorting around South Beach, especially since he's still shy of the legal drinking age. We kid, of course, but Kyle really does seem like a good citizen of the NHL, and we wouldn't want to suggest otherwise...

He hasn't played in every preseason game, but unless we've missed something he has tallied only one assist so far. A goal tonight would put a nice capstone on his first full NHL camp. The game is of note for another reason too, it's been widely reported that this guy is going to play.

Good luck to all involved, and we'll know the final product by Wednesday.
