That might be more than the rest of the roster combined (very close, anyway)

wow
You serious about this?

Moulson - 281
Tavares - 249
Okposo - 277

807 on our top line...

If you meant individually, Reasoner has 773, Nabby has 610, Boyes has 564. So Boulton has the 3rd most NHL GP on the team.

There are some interesting similarities though.
I have 1 huge problem with this and the fact that nobody noticed it Nabokov = Healy!! Osgood came much later lol = )

And DP = Lorenz. That's right... I won't even put him on Fitzy's level.

Henrique is only on the 4th line because it is his first game back after injury. They are probably planning on give him 10 minutes or so to ease him in, unless he looks great and then I wouldn't be surprised to see him move up mid game. He hasn't really practiced at all though.

Looking forward to a good game tonight. Isles are playing some good hockey!

Just want to mention that the Zubrus-Elias-Clarkson line has been dynamite all season. Clarkson is the only player on the Devils to have a point in all 5 games. He and Elias have picked up from where they left off.

If you can shut down the top 2 lines, you should be set. Carter-Gionta-Bernier has been the 3rd line and shows that the bottom 6 depth isn't good. They are a very good 4th line but not the ideal 3rd line.

Haha, you're right, my memory isn't what it used to be. Thanks for the correction. I might have mentally blocked out Heals after the bad split. He has taken every opportunity to bash the Isles since, bitter much?

was half-kidding but I hadn't realized that it's been 3+ years for both Tavares and Moulson, longer for Okposo - I suppose the "kids" are growing up. I was shocked that Boulton had played 600 games though. Makes you wonder, if you only focused on fighting in your career, do you have a better chance of playing in the NHL than trying to make it on skill? Poor Schrempster, all those months, years of masterning the "lacrosse shootout move" and he's in Europe while Boulton will have an NHL pension until he's 100 years old or longer. Crazy.

Long story short, Boulton sucks, I would have called up Nino or Nelson, and holy wow he's played 600 games!

Great GDT! I started playing an NHL 93 season (the EA Sports PC version) with the Isles last weekend. What a coincidence.

I'd say the Isles will win 3-2 in OT.

Yes! Although Volek was somewhat of an enigma. Ullstrom seems to play hard every shift where Volek would make Al Arbour pull his hair out on occasions.

Who is the new Steve Thomas? If Okposo could score a few more goals I'd go with him but as it is it doesn't work. Hmmmm....

How about Reasoner? It's between Greg Parks, Scott Scissons and Steve Junker if you ask me

This TV situation is bull!

The Rag$ are on MSG1 HD & MSG2 HD. The Devils broadcast is on MSG+ HD. Therefore the Isles get bumped.

So you are either watching the Devils Broadcast or standard def.

Don't get me wrong standard def is not the end of the world but come on.

I am convinced they bump the isles to standard whenever possible.

I'm leaving Barcelona up as my location even though I'm back in Austin - screw it.

The long series of flights back was much nicer with an Islanders' win over the Pens.....keep pouring it on, boys.

I'm calling this (hopefully) a 3-2 Isles victory. Don't let up!! Go Islanders!!

(and I don't even have to stay up until 1am to watch it. )
