Botta Speaks X 2

As is pretty well known throughout the hockey world by now and, as we surmised yesterday, the New York Islanders have revoked the media credentials of AOL Fanhouse and NYI Point Blank writer Chris Botta.

Botta stayed silent, as was probably best in the early-going but the hockey community has rallied around him today and he obliged several requests from fellow members of the media.

Tonight, he will guest on Versus’ new “NHL Overtime” show, which begins at 11:00 PM, ET. Until then, catch a couple of interviews from earlier today after the jump.

First, Botta’s spot on WFAN with Mike Francesa

And here’s Chris on HNIC Radio with Jeff Marek

One positive out of all of this nonsense is the support that Botta has received from writers (from print and the web! How about that?) but, clearly, the Islanders need to make this right. My guess is, eventually, they will - somehow or another.

Then again, maybe they won’t. I mean, how could the Islanders look any worse than they already do?

Ugly, ugly stuff in Uniondale these days.
