Strait isn't bad, but he's also not good at anything. Hope he can carve out an NHL career for himself, and it opens up a contract spot for us. Win/win.

Garth Snow has never met a 7th defenseman he didn't like.

Don't get the hate either. It's what waivers are there for, keep guys in the NHL who otherwise wouldn't be.

With the way Isles defense prospects get pumped up on here, you'd expect them to be locks for a roster spot, especially on one of the most inept defenses in the league.

De Haan is injured for the season and I am happy they didn't decide to throw Reinhart into the fire like they did with Nino last season

At which point everyone would rag on the Isles for rushing them.

I, for one, am not really satisfied with our prospects on defense. I like Reinhart, Mayfield, and deHaan but IMO are the only ones that have top-4 potential. Donovan is going to be a #5, Pokka, Pelech, and Pedan the same. Ness, Wishart, and all the other 2012 prospects are not NHL calibre.

If Seth Jones is drafted by the Islanders, we'd be set.

Not that he's necessarily top-4, but maybe you got a PP specialist type in Brenden Kichton or no?

I hope Strait carves out a career as a #6 for the Isles. I'm happy that he gets an opportunity, he's paid his dues, I'm not the "give it to him because he deserves it" type of guy, but the guy has played it right the whole way and I'm glad that a team is taking a chance on him. I hope it works out for the Isles. Well, no, not really, I hope it works out for Strait, the Isles are a by-product of that...but whatever...tomato tomato...

19 yr old Reinhart in the Isles/Sound Tigers scrimmage, kept his game simple and looked good. I've no complaints with sending him back to juniors though.

22 yr old De Haan went out early in the season with a shoulder injury.

22 yr old Donovan was named to the 2012-2013 AHL all-star team. I have to say, I expected him to get a #6 role with the isles. But, Snow must not feel he's nhl ready since he remains Bridgeport's #1 instead of the isles #6.

Other prospects like Mayfield, Pelech, Pokka just aren't nhl ready yet.

Wanted Winnipeg to pick him up. They need a good defensive guy to play as a # 6 or 7.

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.

The Grabner pickup didn't work out too badly.

If the waiver pick-ups are sent to the AHL, they're subject to waivers again.

Of course, but who says they'll get claimed? Hickey I can see being claimed by someone but the others might well pass

The teams that they originally played for can claim them back and send them to their farm team if no team wants them to play in the NHL.

Nothing. But he already got claimed once, and the Isles are pretty high up in the order.

If the Isles attempt to send Strait to BP, it's almost a guarantee the Pens will re-claim him and send him to WBS. Especially if Bortuzzo and Despres make the Pens big roster, the Baby Pens are going to need Strait.

The Pens can't send him to WBS without exposing him to waivers. If they claim him, he has to go on the NHL roster, same as any other team.

If the Islanders send Strait down to Bridgeport, he goes through waivers, if nobody claims him the Penguins have the right to pick him back up and send him back to their farm team. Sidney is basically saying if he goes down no chance the Penguins don't use their option to reclaim him and assign him to their farm team. I am fairly certain Buffalo and LA will use that option as well if the Islanders decide to send down Finley or Hickey

I guess eh? For some reason I thought he'd have to go back to the Pens' NHL roster.

I am guessing that rule is put in to prevent teams from pooching players then sending them down to their AHL team in hopes they can get a free asset

I think the waiver p/u's make Bridgeport a better team because Donovan, Ness, and Wishart (and Reinhart goes back to juniors) stay at the Bridge and play minutes and try to become better players rather then play 5/6 minutes or even get scratched up on the Island. I think all the waiver p/u's are further along and more NHL ready than those 4 (Donovan can be debated).

He went from the Pens scrap heap to the Islanders top 4. From what I saw of their defense last night, I don't think he'll be coming back. On most teams he's a 5,6,or7 D-man but on the Islanders he is a top 4.
