USA 3, Switzerland 1: Assist for Streit in uneven game

Islanders defenseman Mark Streit played well for the Swiss team he captained, but it wasn't enough in their 3-1 loss to Team USA.

Kyle Okposo: Not yet an Olympian

Brian Burke named Chris Drury and Ryan Callahan to the 2010 U.S. Olympic team, while leaving off Kyle Okposo, who's frankly had a better year and is a better fit for the role.

Introducing Your Islanders 2010 Olympic Hockey Hopefuls: *crickets*

The Islanders won't be sending many players to the Vancouver Olympics, but one guy who's a lock will be the most important player on his team.

Olympics: 'No such thing as a clean hit to the head'

The IIHF issued a clear reminder that they outlawed all hits to the head in 2002, so expect zero-tolerance enforcement at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Of course, if it's a game officiated by NHL refs...

No invite, no problem: How the NHL Olympic break might help the Islanders

A look at how the Olympic demands on NHL players might actually help the Islanders when the NHL returns from its February Olympic break.

Okposo invited to USA Olympic camp

Not a big surprise, but really cool nonetheless. Kyle Okposo is just 21, he had a solid World Championships for Team USA, and I don't think he realizes yet just how good he can be. This will only help. Congratulations to the young winger. Who scores more goals next year - Okposo or JT?

"No one should view the goaltender competition to be over because DiPietro is hurt now. He has the competitive arrogance and athleticism to be a dominant player in a tournament like the Olympics. … He could be like Jim Craig was in 1980 and crank it up for 30 days and be the star of the tournament.
