Morning Skate: MacArthur Ready to Step Up?

New, comments

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.
