NY Islanders claim Brian Strait
 
From the Penguins.

SLAPSHOT723 01-18-2013 11:09 AM

I'm at a loss for words, this makes no sense to me.

Bennett Brauer 01-18-2013 11:09 AM

Streit, Strait, makes perfect sense to me.

Alvvays 01-18-2013 11:09 AM

Nice pickup.

HarrisonFord 01-18-2013 11:10 AM

Can we just get an "Islanders Claim off Waivers" prefix for thread creation?

Yitz 01-18-2013 11:10 AM

who?

xECK29x 01-18-2013 11:10 AM

I feel bad for Butchie and Howie getting the names messed up.

ds246pit 01-18-2013 11:11 AM

So where does that put their opening night roster at? 36 players?

We probably should. Unbelievable.

With rumors about Connolly floating around, we might not be finished either.

HockeyGuruPitka 01-18-2013 11:11 AM

Is it just me or do the islanders want Seth Jones?

I mean, who doesn't? :naughty:

Garth Snow really likes waivers... jeez.

Of course they do. They want everybody

JawandaPuck 01-18-2013 11:13 AM

Visnovsky (L) suspended today.

LD-RD
MacDonald-Hamonic
Streit-Martinek
Hickey-Carkner
Strait (L)
Finley (L - may play as a forward for now)

Ziggy Stardust 01-18-2013 11:13 AM

Garth Snow is going to use up his maximum transactions limit. You can't win at fantasy hockey playing like that!

danyhabsfan 01-18-2013 11:13 AM

Makes sense so he'll be with his brother with the NYI

kiding

Bennett Brauer 01-18-2013 11:13 AM

Lol, in the rumor thread about Connolly being claimed by NYI, I asked if NYI would claim Strait for the Streit/Strait connection on defense, looks like the didn't claim Connolly but they did claim Strait!

Leafs will deal him and eat half the salary

Fordy 01-18-2013 11:15 AM

That's really annoying.

That's probably the answer right there. Curious as to why Vis was only suspended today? Is it to make the 23-man roster? Or is he decided to not come again?

Marlo Stanfield 01-18-2013 11:17 AM

:)

I was always pulling for us to trade for one of the younger cheap defenseman from Pitt (Strait, Bortuzzo, Sneep). Glad to see we got Strait for free

Lonewolfe2015 01-18-2013 11:18 AM

If this keeps up, I'm going to start calling them the Brooklyn Waivers.

boredmale 01-18-2013 11:18 AM

I wonder if this means Finley will go back to Buffalo sooner or later

He is a solid defenseman, i think he'll make a run for a spot on the roster. I would have rather seen Lovejoy waived and Strait given the spot on Pittsburgh but i guess Shero/Bylsma had other ideas.
