Yeah, I have been saying the same thing, there are a lot of Met/Islander correlations but none more telling than Pelfrey/Comeau. I think the Mets will finally give up on Pelfrey this year. Comeau can't ruin a game like Pelfrey can, but they can fool you.

I do think Comeau is sitting as a result of "who else to sit for toughness" Gillies is needed for intimidation after the first 3 games where guys were getting ambushed late in the game.

There are only 4 centers on the roster, so Bailey can't sit

Reasoner and Pandolofo are PK specialists

You have to suit up 6 dmen and 2 goalies

Rolston is on the PP

Martin is toughness.

The other 4 wingers are

a) 2 30 goal scorers
b) PAP (top assist man in the league)
c) Okposo, who is on the PK and PP, and is the heart of the team in some way.

I like Comeau a lot, but I think he is going to end up in Calgary very soon as Calgary might want to shed a big salary to us like JayBo, but who knows. We get an injury on the wing and Comeau will be a fixture nightly again.
