Witt is a rugged character- but beyond that the Islanders don't have a bunch of bruisers on the blue line. Put bodies on guys like Hill, Meyer, Campoli and Bergeron all night long and the Isles will start coughin' up the puck. This is our achilles heel. In most other departments the Isles are pretty solid IMHO.
I agree belive it or not. The rodent is wrong. Bringing up young guys to play in a game that is going to be this huge, compounded by the fact that these two teams are two of the biggest rivals in the NHL to begin with, is only going to lead to a boatload of bad penalties taken. In doing so the Rangers will never be able to play their game, (their road game I mean) which will lead to a blowout. Keep it simple, go to the net, and shoot from every angle. Think defense first, and stay out of the box, and we should be able to come up with at least one of these, this week.
