I think the Islanders will be more of a physical presence with Haley in the lineup. I can see Nino and Ullstrom asked to throw some checks and with Haley, Martin and Hamonic, it may actually turn out to be an entertaining game for the men in black (third jersey night). I don't care if they lose, as long as they play hard and physical!

Look hes not going to turn this team around, but the thing he brings are big hits and can drop them and will, this takes pressure off Martin and Hammer from dropping the gloves. His energy could change things in the locker room and will defiantly change things on the ice! Hey if he scores then great, but its time to bench some guys or trade them, hes brought up right now for energy and toughness and he will bring that, the heart this team has shown is pathetic he will play with it.

I don't know if scoring will go up. What I do know is this team no longer looks flaccid.

Scratch Rolston for the rest of the season or just outright waive him.

4th line energy guy for a team that has zero energy? Not exactly a blockbuster move.

Nino should be back in the line-up as well tomorrow. Wonder what the lines look like? Could a Nino - JT -PA line work?

The eternal pessimist here.....

I think Haley juices up the Isles a bit to at least make the games competitive going forward. They need his hitting, energy, and ability to get the other team off its game.

Thy need Rolston for his cap hit. Can't afford to lose his 5 million.

lol@waiving Comeau or Bailey, are both of them playing like dirty brown water trash right now? Yeah, obviously, but waiving them certainly is ridiculous response to their struggles.

I think it still counts in the minors. Due to him being over 35 when he signed the contract.

That's what I thought as well.

http://proicehockey.about.com/od/lea...salary_cap.htm
Quote:
The "35-and-Older" Clause:

When a player aged 35 or older signs a multi-year contract, his average salary is counted against the team's salary cap during every year of the contract, even if the player retires before the contract is up.

If the player is sent to the minor leagues, his cap hit is reduced by $100,000.
Technical jargon from the CBA, page 190.

Quote:
(iv) All Player Salary and Bonuses earned in a League Year by a Player
who is in the second or later year of a multi-year SPC which was
signed when the Player was age 35 or older (as of June 30 prior to
the League Year in which the SPC is to be effective), regardless of
whether, or where, the Player is playing, except to the extent the
Player is playing under his SPC in the minor leagues, in which
case only the Player Salary and Bonuses in excess of $100,000
shall count towards the calculation of Actual Club Salary;

this team needs to build an identity. they were building one after the pittsburgh game last year with haley, konopka and martin instilling in the team that you have to work your tail off and sometimes literally fight your way to win in this league. of course then our brilliant owner and gm sent haley down, benched gillies, let konopka go and ********* the team. i'm not saying gillies is good. he sucks. these guys, all of them, are 4th liners. but when they beat the crap out of pitt, the league took notice and the isles skill guys gained confidence. they need players of that ilk with a bit more skill. problem is those guys cost money. Wang is cheap.

I wonder if Shanahan has scheduled his meeting for Thursday, or if he'll push it back to Monday because of the holiday?

I like what Haley brings to this team in terms of energy and fortitude.
Would not be surprised to see him and Rinaldo drop the gloves, t would be a good match, they are both intense and about similar size, with MH the heavier of the two.
Matt Martin v. Wayne Simmonds is another possible match, and if both happen early, I look to that to energize the Islanders for this game like it did last year as long as it isnt an appointment match.
Not saying it gets us the win, but the players on teh bench appreciate the sacrifice the fighter takes on for them, and if it gets them playing their hearts out, it is what the team needs, win or lose. They will win more games with that apptitude than they would by moping around and not being physical.

Who sits??

Moulson/Tavares/PAP
Grabs/Frans/Okposo
Martin/Bailey/Nino
Ullstrom/Reasoner/Haley

Rolston, Pando, Comeau in the stands. My guess, but would rather see Reasoner scratched also, Comeau on the 4th line with Haley or Ullstrom centering. Some speed and energy there at least.

Haley gives the Isles a few things; One more player that throws his weight around so the other time has to keep there head up and potentially make more rushed passes. One more player willing to stand up for our highly skilled players so when liberties our taken there is a higher level of certainty that there will be payback. Although he is not a heavyweight, we get someone who can fight. Haley will also bring a workman's spirit, since he knows he has to do %110 every shift to stay in the NHL. Adding these things while taking out a non-producer (hopefully Pandawful or Rolston) from the lineup is a plus.

In many of the losses over the past several weeks we have had a decent amount of good opportunities. If the little things that Haley might provide help open up even a fraction of space or give our players a little more confidence that someone has their back, they can start a positive trend.

A 4th liner with b@lls, who will kick anyone's @ss that starts any **** with Tavares. A 4th liner who actually scored 12 goals with Bridgeport last year, and can actually skate. He may not be as talented as Avery, but at least he fights his own battles, and sticks up for his teammates. This is something that is severely lacking on the wussy Islanders.
