People may ridicule all these waiver pickup all they want, but the Isles often end up with a lot of injuries over the season and then it's better to actually have some bodies around that can actually play a little in the NHL. The alternative is playing the kids who maynot be ready or forcing Snow to make deals for players with no future on the team anyway.

In the end Bridgeport could also end up being a very good AHL team as a result of this.
