So what news today? We know Mark Streit is out, with Joe Callahan called up to bump the blueline depth chart up. If this means more ice time for Brendan Witt, it will be in front of his old fans, who remember him playing at a different level (or in a different league).

The Islanders' record is, um, not good without Streit. Will we see a Doug Weight-Kyle Okposo all-forward pairing at the power play points? More love for Bruno? Tune in for the exciting conclusion of Islanders-Capitals, 08-09 edition. A regulation loss guarantees a top-3 lottery ball. ("Dear diary: Jackpot.")

Color me tickled that, of those who took the poll so far, most visitors took the chance to slam the Rangers. The world is right when Ranger Disdain is something we can all agree on.
