Yeah sure recaps of games are great and all, but we all watched the game and knew what happened so the loss of the recaps wasn't that bad especially since he couldn't go around interviewing players after the games. What he did instead was provide stories that you could not find else where about the Islanders. That is dedication. He devoted all his time to finding unique stories that could not be found anywhere else. A simply game recap can be found on any site. Botta was amazing and I am already missing him severely.
