Newsday's Arthur Staple always has his finger on the pulse of Islanders fans, and knows exactly what they want, especially on a day when the only game on the schedule is between their most hated rivals and the team that just knocked the Isles out of the playoffs.

Staple took some time out this morning to do one of his impromptu Q&A sessions on Twitter and shed some of his knowledge on many subjects including who could or could not be on the roster next season.

On Departures; Gremlin, Oklahoman or otherwise:

*   *   *

On kids

On Wingers (not Kip or Debra)

*   *   *

On Garth and golf

*   *   *

On the new guys signing the checks

*   *   *

On The Babs

*   *   *

On Michal Neuvirth's possible return

*   *   *

On powerless power plays

*   *   *

Just curious
