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

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

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.

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

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!

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?

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

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

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.
