Tattoo Lou's, the Official Tattoo Parlor of the New York Islanders, posted a neat video featuring a few of the Islanders getting inked. It's a quick little video at only a little after 3:00, but some things I gleaned from this video: - Michael Grabner's first tat was an across-the-chest tattoo in honor of his newborn son Aidan. Grabs wanted to reach the 140 character limit but Tattoo Lou talked him out of it. - Blake Comeau originally wanted a tattoo that started on the left side of his lower back, wrapped up around his shoulder, across his backside, and then back down around his right side, but Tattoo Lou wouldn't allow it much to Blake's dismay. - Micheal Haley got his tattoo on his ribs, one of the most painful areas on the human body to receive a tattoo. Even more disconcerting, Micheal just stared at Tattoo Lou without blinking while getting inked. - Sadly, Matt Martin will not be playing for the Islanders this season, as he just got a new gig as the lead singer of Nickelback.

Take of it what you will.

Is Botta Quitting?

Interesting moment I just noticed from his latest Islanders Interactive feature, he mentions that the rotating goaltending will be the "only reason why I will miss covering this team next season". Anybody know anything else about the future of IPB? Say what you will about Botta, it'll suck to lose another source of Islanders news.

This is for those of you who will be in midtown today. Michael Grabner, Frans Nielsen, Kyle Okposo, and Andy MacDonald will be at the NHL Store for a Q & A with Billy Jaffe at 4:00 PM. Now I work one building away and may try to steal a few minutes to run to the NHL store and check it out, but due to the nature of my job, that's pretty much impossible. Hrm.
