Islanders Esoteric 4-08: Tale of Two Bobs.

Our 2nd win. Congrats to COMRIE & WEIGHT for breaking into the top 100. Read more to find out in what category.

HUNTER is the Games Played (GP) all-time leader amongst active players with 330GP. The next three active on the list are MARTINEK, DIPIETRO and CAMPOLI. The next guy on the list that isn’t hurt is PARK with 162GP.

With last nights Game Winner (GWG), HUNTER extends his lead amongst the active players with 9GWG. Incidentally, he is tied for #33 with Travis Green, Izzy, Roman, Marty McInnis and the Mighty One amongst more recent players. He is also tied with Butchy and Lorne amongst the more “senior” alumni.

MEYER IV had his second 4PIM game in a row.

All-time now, there have been 139 players never to score a goal even though they played with the Islanders. This includes 33 of our 34 goalies.

This was the Islanders 2,800 franchise game and was their 1,225th franchise Win.

2 other Islander Goalies have played in only 6 games – Big Valley & Marcel Coustineau.

2 others have 2 Wins with the Islanders – Big Valley & Chris Terreri.

Joey ranks 26th in Minutes Played (MP) on the all-time Goalies MP list.

COMRIE has 95PIMs and is #123 overall tied with Wayne McBean and Hector Marini.

MEYER’s 4PIMS allows him to jump 11 players in the standing and ties him with two players at the #54th spot overall, HILBERT and current Philadelphia Phantoms head coach, Craig BERUBE. Ever see this one:

GUERIN is on pace for 41A and 61.5Pts for the season.
COMRIE is on pace for 41G and 61.5Pts for the season
WEIGHT is on pace for 82G for the season
GERVAIS is on pace for 61.5A on the season


COMRIE in his 80GP is tied with Gerry Desjardins at #168th. His 23rd Goal lands him in the top 80 overall, breaking a tie with Jeff Norton, Uwe Krupp and PARK. His 29th Assist ties him with 4 others at the #111th spot with HILBERT, Mick Vukota, Dave Hudson, and Randy Boyd. His 2-point game gives him a total of 52Pts and enters him into the all-time Islander’s top 100 in scoring.

WEIGHT becomes the 241st player to ever score 2 Goals with the Islanders. He was also the 287th player to ever score a Goal *EVER* with the team. His mere 4GP is #371st and ties him with 14 others. The Goal tonight was his 2nd Power Play Goal (PPG) and breaks him into the top 100 at #99 with 28 others. He is #268th overall in Points tied with 15 others with his 4 Points.

HUNTER is the active leader in a bunch of categories right now. I mentioned above the players he was tied with in the all-time GWG category. Let’s hope Trent tends towards the success of Butchy and Lorne than the other bunch. TRENT had a multi-Goal night in his 330GP with the Islanders. He is tied with Shawn Bates at #47th overall in theh GP category. His 76th & 77th Goals jumps him over Claude Lapointe for the #37 spot on all-time Goal scorers. He is again tied with Bates in Points at #42nd with 170 Points.

GUERIN has been here now for 85GP. Is that true? He just got here, what? Yesterday? 85 GP places him at #155th with Randy Boyd, Mike Hough and Mattias Timander. His Assist is his 23rd and lands him at the #129th spot with MAB, Mike Watt and Big Z. His 47 Points ties him and Bob Bassen together at #109th overall in Points.

GERVAIS now has 142GP under his belt and broke the tie with Sergei Nemchinov to gain sole possession of the #112th spot overall. His 26th Assist with the Islanders ties him with Viktor Kozlov, Mats Lindgren and Dale Henry at #119th. The Assist gives him 29 Points and is #141st tied with Big Z.
