Morning Skate: MacArthur Ready to Step Up?

I only have a few links for you today as we get ready for the New York Islanders to come to town.  The Islanders appear to be an improved team that is just a couple of pieces away from being a good team.  Their lineup is scattered with young players that are relishing the opportunity.

I will be doing an appearance on Hockey Night in Long Island tomorrow at 5:30.  Feel free to listen to the show and weigh in with your comments.

I guess we should be realistic about how long the season is but I want them to win every game and I plan on enjoying it.
