Rolston, Kabanov day to day

Brian Rolston (groin) and Kirill Kabanov (wrist) are both day to day. With the four previously injured Islanders -- Andrew MacDonald, Marty Reasoner, Rhett Rakhshani and Mitchell Theoret -- getting their first full skates in today, Rolston and Kabanov were off.

Jack Capuano said he's not stressing yet about Rolston and Reasoner, two of the veteran forwards acquired through trade and free agency this summer, both missing time in the first week of camp.

"You know what they can do, but at the same time they're missing some conditioning work here," Capuano said. "They are pros, they've been doing this a long time and they know their bodies, they know how to prepare for a long season. So I'm not overly worried. But you do want all your guys out there."
