Dan Petriw: Strome sent to Bridgeport

The Islanders have sent Ryan Strome to their AHL affiliate; Bridgeport Sound Tigers. With Travis Hamonic not on the IR and Radek Martinek coming off injured reserve the team had to clear a roster space. It appears as this is a temporary move, while Strome was not setting the world on fire he clearly did not look out of place. If this isn't a temporary move I am frankly...

Dan Petriw: One step forward, Two steps back

The Islanders will look to get their season out of reverse tonight as they are in Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins. Thomas Vanek, Michael Grabner and Radek Martinek will all return to the lineup tonight. As a result, Aaron Ness, Eric Boulton and for some reason Brock Nelson will be scratched. I’m usually pretty good at reading into these decisions but I really canâ€...

Dee Karl: Lubo Out

The NY Islanders have officially placed defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky on IR as of 10/19/13 with a concussion. So, if that is three games without Vis, that should give Matt Donovan some time on the Power Play. Or.... It could put Radek Martinek back on the team. Either way, this is not the way the Isles would like to get through October when points count. Also, I'm...

Either way, it seems he won't have a chance for a second goal just yet. Radek Martinek will be in for Carkner...

He is almost as soft spoken and difficult to interview as he was when he first arrived on the Islanders and the only word in English he knew well was "Stick." Radek has a far better command of the English language now, but he's still a man of few words. He just wants to contribute to the team, and do it without fanfare. While he was not only interviewed on the...
