High pedigree puckmover (2008 and 12009 canadian wjc captain and gold medal winner). drafted 4th overall by the cup champs whose early injuries left him behind other guys on their depth chart. Plays similiarly to MacDonald, right doen to the occasional hip check (had one late december where he obliterated a guy who tried to skate down his side).

I wish. Truth is you guys had our number last year. We're coming off huge moral victories over the Penguins and Capitals. Both games featured 3/4 lines shaken up, and it seemed to work. There's also a new found commitment to forwards being more defensive

It will be an interesting game.

Its the coaches job to prep the guys before the game as well as the captian's job to make sure that know one goes out under estimate the other team. I know it all sits in the back of every player and fan's head thinking this is an easy one. Its the leaders job to prepare the team each and every day making sure they are focused

Thanks man looking forward to seeing him play tonight. Andy Mac is an underrated defensemen imo. Anyone with upside on this team is good.

Lots of Islander talk if anyone wants to tune in TSN 1290 Winnipeg.

Someone help me out because I am now confused. I heard:

Finley out, Hickey in
Streit out, yet no Martinek?

How does that work? Is Streit a game time call and might be in?

From what I've read Streit will play.

I'm pretty sure Streit just skipped out on the morning skate today but will be in the lineup. Someone said he's been battling the flu IIRC.

Hope this Finley out Hickey in that I'm hearing about is true

Either way lets go Isles.

Winnable game that we need big time

Just wanted to add we'll probably boo Tavares whenever he touches the puck. Consider it a compliment, one that almost always works against us.

Yeah, we're aware of the tradition of booing the other team's best player or at least I am. Hopefully they'll have to boo him a lot tonight because that means he's being who he is.

I've noticed that this happens more with certain teams. Toronto, for example, has been the worst by far this season. Almost every other post was "I can't believe we're losing to the Islanders". They must forget that this is the NHL, there are no easy wins, any team can win or lose on any given night.

I just hope they don't wait too long before mixing up that top line if they come out flat again.

I bet nobody predicted the Isles would be leading the Atlantic division in goals per game after the first week of the season. Hopefully we keep the offense going tonight against Montoya. I feel we always do good against our ex-goalies.

I guess JT is a suitable replacement, considering our best player is not in the lineup tonight. Joe Finley is scratched.
