Islanders Esoteric #9-08

Did your favorite player make the esoteric?

ISLANDER ALUMNI to make tonights's esoteric: Brian Curran, Scott LaChance, OLEG!!!, Bert, Ken Leiter, Hubie, Dan Plante, McCabe, Bob's Bassen and Lorimer, Dave McLlwain and the ever-fan-favorite, Don Maloney.

Do you realize that the Roberto Luongo era ended 3,052 days ago? It seemed like yesterday didn't it?

With Hilbert tallying his 18th, I took a look at the top 100 scorers overall. Do you realize that there has only been 99 players to score a mere 17 Goals or more with the Islanders. I thought it would be more considering...

... Mitch FRITZ becomes the 428th player to lace 'em up for the Blue & Orange. He is also the 373rd player to sit in the sin bin for NYI. Fritz is undefeated on the road in regulation time.

Only 55 players who ever skated for the Islanders DID NOT sit in the Penalty Box.

If you are keeping track that means that Chris Campoli is the next one to break into the top 100 Goal scorers.

Last night we actually won the battle of faceoffs for a change. Here is a number that will jump out at you: NEILSEN won 14 F/Os and lost 4.


Guerin (3) PP Streit Weight
Hilbert (2) Comrie Sutton

Guerin is on pace for 27G, 27A and 54 Points
Hilbert is on pace for 18G, 18A and 36 Points
