With a day off after the New York Islanders' big win at Madison Square Garden, Islanders Newsday beatwriter Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) did one of his impromptu and informative Q&A sessions on Twitter this morning.

Topics included the possibility of acquiring ageless Jaromir Jagr from the Devils, the contract negotiations with Johnny Boychuk, the possibility of acquiring ageless Jaromir Jagr from the Devils, food, Jagr, more food and a lot more Jagr.
