Islanders Bits: We talkin' practice?

Now Promoted: A Finn Named Jesse.

Some read Monday's off day after the Sunday afternoon loss to the Flyers as an exclamation point on the anonymous "country club" comment. But from reports on Tuesday's practice, that's not what Jack Capuano had in mind. He followed the off-day with a boot camp style practice yesterday, as the links below explain. Of note both at yesterday and at today's practice: Jesse Joensuu is on the line with John Tavares and Matt Moulson.

Apologies for the delayed post today -- Internet issues on my end. (Yes, it's 2010, but I still can't count on a reliable connection.) Check later for WebBard's overarching post on the progress of the rebuild.
