Its not about calling up a 4th liner. Its about bringing up and guy with grit and heart, who can thump some bodies around.

Great... he's sucked in Bridgeport. Hopefully he'll spend time in the box and not the ice so we only get 5 goals scored against us instead of 7.

Just wondering if I should try to ruin my Thanksgiving by watching the game or just ignoring it all together.

I doubt it. Capuano definitely fought for him to be up here.

What I don't get is why Garth Snow, who was fiesty in his own right, would ever not want there to be some grittiness in the locker room? You need an agitator on each team. Maybe he's just in love with the idea of the "NEW NHL" where skill is what will win. Maybe it's Wang having him build a team full of finesse players because maybe that's secretly what the league wants? Who knows? I don't think he's going to be a savior by any stretch, but he never should have been sent down in the first place. He earned his spot last year.

glad he's getting called up. what those of you are missing who are poo-pooing this move is that hitting and engaging are contageous. If a player sees haley go out there and hit hit hit...and martin hit hit hit, and see them tussle and fight for each other and everyone else, it gets the rest of the players balls out of their throats and lets them start "manning up" a bit. this team plays soft. its an attitude. haley brings a reversal of that attitude. he might not be enough, but he and ullstrom are a good place to start.

now 2 parts of my plan are in action. now waive ROLSTON, and motteau, call up wishart and colliton...and we have ourselves a team boyz.

oh, as an addendum to my original plan, seeing rahk back reminds me how much i think of him. he's another winner. hes the guy you want out there with the game on the line. wave numbbleep comeau and get him in here too.

Cool. It's about time.

We will still suck but be less boring and at least go down fighting.

Watching the game and I think they have more attitude. I know it's because Haley is on the bench. He adds that feeling of safety on the team because of what he can do and Martin doesn't have to be only guy who can drop the gloves. His presence on the bench is whats needed.

waiving rolston sounds good, but what if the rangers pick him up to screw us? wouldnt that be possible?

The Rangers don't even need to acknowledge the Islanders' existence let alone make moves that would hurt them. Besides, Rolston is about as irrelevant as it gets. If the Isles waive him and he is picked up, it is garbage in, garbage out. No more, no less.

Not to mention, how much more "screwed" can they get?

first of all, losing rolston and his 5million cap hit is no loss to this team. im sure garth can find better ways to spend 5 million. there has to be some over paid defender out there who might actually be an upgrade over mike mottau. Rolston is a total waste, as viewed by last night.

the thing im starting to wrestle with is, if we're going to keep scratching NINO, we might as well send him back to juniors.

You really think the Rangers want to take on a $5m cap hit just to do that?

Rolston's cap hit still counts in the minors.

It's funny to see all these so called Isles fans bash Haley for no reason other than being popular.
