[Bits] John Tavares Captain Day; Boyes, Martinek in Isles Camp Invites?

Say, I see a new "C." - Christopher Pasatieri

I bet your employer never put a "C" on your work shirt.

By 11 a.m. today (presser is at 10:45), the Islanders will make it official that John Tavares is their next captain and should remain so for a very, very long time.

Meanwhile, back at band camp ... rookie camp featured a lengthy practice on Sunday, with the sides dividing up for a scrimmage that forced some of the many many defensemen in camp to play as forwards.

*And it's fun to watch both NHL.com and ESPN.com report it in a "Tavares told [our outlet]" way when it's a media tour and he's clearly saying the same stuff to everyone who showed up. (In fine ESPN tradition, "a source told ESPN" Tavares will be captain well after another unnamed outlet -- Arthur Staple of Newsday -- had reported it.)
