Media Coverage for Draft Weekend
The anticipation of the 2008 NHL Draft has officially hit its pinnacle and the Islanders are gearing up for one of their most pivotal weekend of the summer. And it’s safe to say, there won’t be a lack of coverage for the Orange and Blue this Draft weekend.

Islanders TV, which produced over 20 video blogs last season at the draft, is expected to exceed their coverage to rise the bar even higher with interviews from general manager Garth Snow, assistant general manager Ryan Jankowski and team scouts about the newly drafted prospects.

Newsday is sending Islanders beat writer Greg Logan to cover the draft and Greg has promised plenty of blog updates.

From the blogging community, NYI Blog Box members Michael Schuerlein of  and Tom Liodice of The Tiger Track will be on hand in Ottawa blogging the news as it breaks from the Draft. There will also be other Blog Boxers on hand at the Draft party blogging with updates from the Coliseum.

Also on hand at the Coliseum will be fan-site The Isles Nation Talk Show will stream live from the Coliseum floor and host Stephan Herrmann is expected to interview Islanders personnel and fans throughout the evening. The radio show is archived immediately following its conclusion and can be heard online after the Draft Party.

And remember, the Islanders Draft Party hosted by ESPN’s John Buccigross kicks off at the Nassau Coliseum at 5:30. Fans attending the party will hear from Islanders personnel live from Ottawa throughout the event.

And as always, check back to often in the coming days to find out any Islanders news that might break from Ottawa.
