This was in the daily rant section of today's Newsday...
"While attending the Islanders game vs. Carolina this past Saturday,
I witnessed one of the most sincere and unselfish acts ever displayed
by a professional sports team. For honoring a former coach under such
circumstances, Islanders management and fans should receive the
highest of marks for acknowledging the past when it would have been
so much easier to avoid it."
