Off to Kansas City for Islanders hockey, wee wee

This ship is fully operational yet lacks an anchor tenant.

So yeah, big day all around for the Islanders. For the insignificant yet on-ice side, as previously mentioned I'll be in Kansas City and will file a "report" after the game, while something a little more important is going on. Hey, that's how things roll; K.C. can be a fun town.

For the game, we know John Tavares won't be there, and we know the Brothers Westgarth will. Josh Bailey and Dwayne Roloson are the name-player bones thrown to the K.C. crowd from the Isles end. Also reported: Jon Sim on a line with Greg Moore and Jesse Joensuu. Katie Strang has the rest of the lineup here. ("K.C., are you ready for preseason hockey baby?!"). For the perspective of those being tossed like pawns in the pro sports relocation game, here's a Hockey in K.C. blog I enjoy. (Another I originally omitted: PucKChaser.)

Meanwhile, for the Island-centric bigger picture:

Once again, good luck to all. I'm 'onna watch me some exhibition hockey.
