Folks, I really, really think we're off the mark if any of us truly believes that there are currently players on our BPort team who are better or more suited to be playing with the Isles than Comeau.

Frustratingly inconsistent or not, alone his skating and puck control currently make him one of our 4 or 5 best forwards.

Hands down...

Thought he was supposed to return in December? Where is the rehab, where is the news about his recovery? Guess he isn't coming back this month. I guess its on the hush hush.

When he was injured they said 2-3 months, I believe right about today would've been 2 months so give it some time. He'll be back soon enough no need for any possible reinjury.

He played very well before the injury last year too. I think he's just terribly inconsistent and unfortunately, not too bright.

Injured Islanders forward Kyle Okposo, who suffered a preseason shoulder injury in September, skated with full gear on for the first time today.

Considering Okposo was slated to begin skating at some point in December, today's development is an encouraging sign that he is progressing according to schedule.

"It's a big [milestone]," Okposo told Newsday. "It's been a long road. It feels great to just get on the ice and handle the puck a little bit. It's fun."

The 22-year-old forward can't predict exactly when he'll return, but he hopes that day will come soon.

"It's obviously a big step to put full gear on so hopefully it's not too far away," he said. "Hopefully it's sooner rather than later.

Okposo began skating on his own a week-and-a half ago, and has been keeping up with his regular rehab regimen--he seen doing pushups in the hallway after skating this morning--to strengthen his shoulder.

"It's getting better. it's getting there, so we'll see how it progresses from here."

PAP is "this years Matt Moulson" afterall. Gotta give him top minutes. Chucks orders.

Yeah, this is my nightmare.

And I could see it happening, Comeau played great with Tavares for the last 20 or so games last year but he hasn't even gotten a chance with JT this year. I shouldn't assume KO will be thrown back on the line.
