Hillen is out per Strang twitter, Matt Campanale signed to an emergency ATO.
By my count this makes 7 dmen out...
I don't think I have ever seen 7 dmen out at the same time before. This has been an unreal season.
Yes, every team has injuries and yada yada....but holyshtballs (as danny devito says)!
Let's face it. We have no idea who this team is because I don't know if they've EVER played a game, ALL HEALTHY over the past two seasons.
The fact that RADEK MARTINEK is the only healthy top six defenseman is ABSURD. (Granted, Hamonic has emerged and earned a top six as a result of the many injuries all year!)
I know this isn't really news is IslesCountry - but take (another) a step back and let it sink in.....just wow!

that would be a nice move!
FYI, in the summer when the board is dead, I'm going to post a thread proposing Okposo being converted to a defenseman (ALA Byfuglien)!! It will come across as shocking and stupid at first (and at second), but it will be the summer and we'll all be excited about Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Nino Niederreiter, John Tavares' off-ice regimen and 12 goals in the WC.
I saw Campanale in the UNH game against Notre Dame and thought he looked good. He's apparently a real character/leader type - big surprise there with the Isles. He also happens to be from about 15 mins away from me here in the Philly burbs.
