"...Gordon explained how the defense has improved in areas he emphasized.." Just when did you "emphasize" these areas Coach, after Witt said something? You need a player to tell you your system isn't working? You didn't notice these problems all along?

My prediction-
The Islanders Beat the Rangers tonight at the Garden-
Rangers fire Renney after the game and hire Ted Nolan on Tuesday-

Draft picks for Doug Weight? Would someone please get Snow to understand that the Isles need to put a hockey team on ice NOW, not in 4 years.
