Thanks to an informed reader and another source we can now proclaim that Kyle will play on Saturday (10/3) night. The Islanders will open the new season by welcoming in the Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins in what we imagine will be a charged atmosphere.
Hopefully the night will be the first in a series of steps designed to bring the Islanders back to competitive respectability on the ice.
While we don't expect any news tomorrow regarding the team's off-ice situation, please note that the date also represents owner Charles Wang's self-imposed deadline for a 'Yes or No' on his Lighthouse Project (from the Town of Hempstead).
We're hoping for the best outcome on both fronts tomorrow, as we fans have waited a long time for something to really go our way.
