Also isnt it weird that the wings for the first itme in a hwile have probably the otughest player out of both teams dressed on their side for once?


Probably not since Babcock dressed Downey. Although Jackman is not to be taken lightly, he is just as tough if not tougher than Commie.

Great to see none the less.

negged for confusing plural vs. possessive


Negged you for not making any sense, like the rest of your posts on this site.

Welcome to the playoffs....where the games get better and the officiating gets worse.

abbie should have done something about that. he was on the ice at the time.

doesn't it make sense that if a person hits a certain amount of negatives they're automatically banned?

some people just get off on whatever attention they get, and it's very easy to get negative attention.

Kindl has played much better than Ericsson. I've been pleasantly surprised so far by his outlet passes and pinching decisions. Oh well...I suppose it's too embarrassing to sit a $3M+ defenseman. <_<

Looking forward to see what Commodore can do though.

I am a bit excited, its too bad Kindl is the odd man out, but if Commodore plays the game he was signed to play and Ericsson goes back to the first 5 games Ericsson (fighter and hitter) this is gonna be one bad ass defense to play against... I am thinking Babcock might have to split up LIds and White though, maybe put White with Stuart and Kronner with Lids, but Ericcson and Commodore should be VERY intimidating as long as they keep away from head shots...

it wasn't an elbow, rather interference

Jackman isnt the best fighter but he is a fighter none the less, I like Commies chances with him though, Jackman is a punching bag at times but a good player for the fourth line.

Its still nice to have a guy who can play a regular shift, AND pretty much fight anyone in the league on a given night except the super heavy weights like Mcintyre.

Earlier in his career with the Islanders, Jackman wasn't a good fighter at all. He's gotten better as he's gained experience. Not the best fighter, for sure, but as long as Kostopoulos and Stortini are around, Jackman won't have to worry about being the NHL's official punching bag. I hope Commodore (Or anyone for that matter) goes after Kostopoulos directly.

It should be Stuart or Ericsson out, not Kindl.


Not going to happen right now since Stuart is 2nd and E's 3rd on the team in PK time-on-ice per game and the PK's about the only thing that's going right at the moment. *shrug* Other than that I'd agree. Those two are also leading the defence in hits so at least they're doing something right :P

I rather have seen Kindl in there instead of Commors. But whatever. Doesn't really matter in the end now does it? Especially with the way this team is playing at the current moment. : (

Commie wasn't bad tonight. Being his 1st game and all, I actually liked Ericssons game tonight. It;s the forwards that are the problem right now.

Commodore did indeed look decent.

Stuart not challenging Kostoupopus was disappointing. Was he waiting for McCarty to do his job for him like Draper did?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

What the heck is Brad Stuart's deal right now? Of the 11 games we've playeed, he's been horrible in 75% of them. I don't get what his deal is, he seems to be turning the puck over left, right and centre.

And Kindl was the one benched? Behind Lids, he's probably been our most consistent defenseman this season. Talk about taking the easy route. Kronwall was awful again tonight, but I''m so glad we scratched Kindl!!!!!!!!!1

I thought Commodore actually looked pretty decent tonight, especially considering he hasn't played in a while. Would watch again.

The D-men are not the problem here.

Commodore didn't do anything tonight, nothing good or bad. He needs to pick up the physicality.
