If you have been hanging around here at Islesblogger the past few weeks, you may have been asking yourself – “Where is the daily content?”. Truth be told, the west coast swing was tough to keep up with due to the time difference, not to mention the free falling nature of our beloved Islanders.

Don’t get me wrong, I watched the games and saw the important parts (Weight’s 1000th, Bailey’s first NHL goal, Smith’s first NHL goal, an Okposo point streak, Tambellini scoring – twice) – I just couldn’t muster the energy to keep the site updated.

I am back though, I needed a small break from the action and I wasn’t alone. Tom Liodice of The Tiger Track went through something similar so we will both be back in full gear.

Like many of you I read Newsday every morning with a cup of coffee. I enjoy reading and always have. What really annoys me is the Islanderd coverage in Newsday, despite a recent increase as of late (Hey Cablevision did buy the paper recently). On a night the two local teams are set to face off, neither team has an article in todays edition. The NHL once again gets brushed aside for Basketball and the ineptitude of the Giants this past weekend.

What a way to start the day.
