Islander fans finaly got news today that gives them hope that owner Charles Wang's Oct. 3 deadline could be met with a decision on the Lighthouse Project. The Town announced a date of September 22, which is coincedentaly the same date as the Isles exhibition game in Kansas city (an event Charles Wang is planning to attend). Interesting to see where he will be that day and as always everyone needs to show up to support this crucial project that will effect the fate of not only the Islanders but Long Island as a whole.
In other news the Isles pre-season opener will be televised live on MSG Plus against the Canucks. This game will mark the first time John Tavares suits up in full Islanders gear in a game against another team. This makes this pre-season game an extreamly interesting one to tune into. Deffenetly the best Birthday present i could ask for, the return of hockey.
