Our Hot Prospect or Theirs - NYI vs TBL 10-16-08

Okay folks, who is it gonna be??? Stamkos or Okposo? We've already seen Vinny light the lamp 18 times too many on the NY Islanders. What's Stamkos going to do... anything?

With Barry Melrose behind the bench looking for his first win of the season as a "new" (old) coach, we know for a fact these guys are going to come out flying. It should be an interesting match up. (hopefully.)

Also interesting will be seeing what CJ Papa does in his new role. Tiger Track Tom had said he was watching him at a previous game and said he did a good job. Now it will be my turn to judge.

Game time is 7:30 pm, but I'm not quite sure if there's a pre-game or not on good old MSG Plus, where ever that might be tonight.

Will we get the surprise of the evening with DiPietro in net? Doubtful. But anything is possible here in IslanderCountry.

Check the Isles website for an interesting contest on IslanderMania to win Witt's seats, and if you have XM radio, Commissioner Bettman's NHL Hour makes it's return today.

I don't care what you think of the man, the show is entertaining and informative.

Happy Thursday. Go throw on that Blue, White and Orange! IT'S GAME DAY!
