Some quick hits from around the Islanders blogs. As always, by all means add additional links in the comment section.
- B.D. Gallof has chased the latest spate of Lighthouse Project p.r. and reiterates from multiple sources: The Lighthouse Project is happening. Still, BlogFather and constituent Chris Botta is absolutely floored by Kate Murray's (she SPEAKS!) responses in her Q&A with Newsday.
- Also happening: Isles19 at The Rivalry finds an Islanders Greatest 10 Games DVD will be out in March. Honey, can I get a raincheck as my Christmas present?
- So many injuries, I forgot about Meyer The Fourth, who returns tonight. Drive for Five has a quarter report on the Islanders' battered defense corps.
- Lots of reaction to the Ryan O'Byrne gift: Islanders Outsider reminds Habs fans that ruining a young player's psyche is uncool. 7th Woman says there's no consoling in that situation -- least of all in Montreal. Like most of us, Islesblogger felt bad (yet grateful) and noted that it was even weirder than Rob Davison's 190-foot goal last year.
- On that note, Tom Liodice at The Tiger Track compiled some classic own goals. As a St. Louis resident, I vividly recall jokester Marc Bergevin throwing the puck in his own goal. In the playoffs. It was not funny. It's still a reference at pick-up games. Let's just move on.
- My god but they're everywhere: Former Islander Watch keeps tabs on prior wearers of the blue and orange, and -- unlike a columnist -- manages to do it without implying that their absence haunts us daily. Speaking of, ESPN caught up with Felix Potvin.
