Found January 28, 2013 on Razzball Hockey:
For this week, we’ll share three forwards, two defensemen and a goaltender you could pick up to give your team a boost. Availability is based on ESPN leagues. Forwards Michael Grabner of the Islanders (LW/RW; 51%) could be a nice fit on your team. He’s getting twenty minutes of ice time per night and posted points in is first three games of the season. The Isles take on Pittsburgh and have a home-and-home with the Devils this week. Ottawa’s Kyle Turris (C, RW; 56%) has quietly picked up four goals already this season. Perhaps this is the year he puts it all together after many years of waiting. Turris and the Senators take on Washington, Carolina and Montreal (twice) this week. Alexander Steen of the Blues (LW; 35%) has yet to score this season but can give your team a boost. Steen has four assists this season and 15 shots on goal. The appeal of Steen is that he’s on the line with Vladimir Tarasenko. He’s playing on a third line and is still seeing time on the power play. It’s just ...

Dee Karl: Thomas Hickey Debut in Winnepeg!

Finally! The news I've been waiting for! Thomas Hickey will skate for the Islanders tonight in Winnepeg against the Jets as he replaced Finley. Eric Boulton will sub for Casey Cizikas and Nabokov will be in goal. When asked why he chose Hickey over Martinek, he said he knows what Radek can do, but he needs to see Hickey in game situations. Good move Jack! Mark Streit...

Islanders 4, Penguins 1

John Tavares scored for the second straight game for New York while Michael Grabner collected his fourth goal of the season and Casey Cizikas found the net for the first time in his career. It was more than...

Dee Karl: Isles vs. Pens & A Special Request

Travis Hamonic says he’s fit to play. We’ll see. I’d still prefer to see him sit out a day than take the chance of injuring himself further. The Isles have a limited number of tickets available for Sunday’s 3 pm game against the NJ Devils for only $25 a seat. Jesse D. Eisenberg has deemed the official Islander pre-game ritual will now be the Shamrock Shake...

Dee Karl: Minor Details for an Off Day

According to Art Staple, Travis Hamonic left Winnepeg yesterday in a walking boot with a sprained ankle. Uh oh. It is doubtful he will play tomorrow in Pittsburgh against the Penguins. Rumor has it, okay, confirmed sources have it, that Lubomir Visnovsky will report to the Islanders no later than February 11th. As the Isles have a home game that night, will he be in the line...
