Most teams (Winnipeg Jets, Penguins, et al) are inviting fans via Twitter to visit team practices, while engendering dialogue with them in the process. Steps one and two in the healing process. Hoping to see many more gestures of this type.

Also, go to http://islanders.nhl.com and see this week’s interviews with Tavares and Streit, as they retell of their European hockey adventures, and staying ever focused (and hopeful) during the work outage.

Hockey fans, let me just say that this time next week we will all be just a tad bit happier, a smidgen more at ease with our lives, for the game we love is back–ever fractured but ready for action.

Let’s go Islanders. See you in section 305.

Check in with us this week as we will study possible line assignments and review those other Islanders that played during the lockout. Overall, this season will offer surprises rarely seen in recent years.  Take care and plan your evenings accordingly!

One last thing:

Lest we forget why we love the game so damn much.
