Isles new captain to be announced today!! New team store update!!

Update: As some expected, Mark Streit has been named captain of the 2011/2012 New York Islanders!! He is the 13th team captain in team history.

According to various news outlets, the Islanders will announce the teams thirteenth captain in team history today. Arthur Staple of Newsday believes the teams new captain will be defenseman Mark Streit.

I wonder if they will go that route or maybe if they will go with a younger guy like Okposo because you know at least that he will be around for a while longer. I personally think that they should maybe go with a younger guy so they dont have to change the captain again in two years.

Also, according to the Isles twitter the new team store located in the box office will be open for business at the preseason game this weekend. Check out the Islanders flickr account to see pictures from inside it. This should be a cool new thing to have at the coliseum since they never really had something like this before there.
