The Weight is over...

Sorry, couldn't resist the title. Finally some game action tonight against the Bruins in Moncton. I wish the Isles were coming to St. John's again like they did last year so I could see this new 'overspeed' style in person but what can you do. Maybe when they move their AHL team here (we know you wanna) the Islanders will base their camp here.

It appears, from reports, that Doug Weight is excited about the up-tempo style of play. I really think the Islanders are going to get a lot out of Weight this year. He's the type of guy who just loves to play and this is a style that will allow him to skate and have fun. It can't help but rub off on the young'ins.
