Tim Jackman gives this team an edge and a spark that has been lacking since Webb and Cairns. It's not only about fighting - Webb didn't actually fight very much - as much as upping the intensity and firing up his team (and the "crowd"). Jackman is a classic example of a guy whose value is way above any specific skill he has. I hope he's here to stay this time. They need him.

The Islanders are looking good right now but it's only October- the question is will they have the firepower to sustain the whole season-
I hate to say it but I still don't think this is a playoff team-

You're probably right Mike but we can still enjoy what we have now.
Go Jackman!
And no mention of Mike Comrie....

You can enjoy it but I agree with Mike- The standards are just too low around here which is why we'll never be a winner- It's always nice to see wins but they gotta build on it-

It's November in this part of the world.

Anyone notice the run we are on doesnt include Comrie. Please Garth -move him for a pick now before his value is below our prospects. He is soft, slow and doesnt fit in Gordon's system. I prefer we hang on to Bailey - give him a chance to learn at the NHL level and bribng Silly back in 2 weeks when he is done with his stint. Silly will offer more intangibles than Comrie - better face off guy, better leadership, more grit and most importantly he can score - not a sniper but he can net 25 garbage goals. Thats more than Comrie will put up minus all the intangibles I listed. The only down side is no more Hills Duff at the Coliseum.

Tim Jackman - I must say he is defining his role on this team. A tough guy with a scoring touch...keep up the good play!!!

I think Comrie will be moved too.
I miss seeing her at games...she is a doll.

If Comrie would put in a couple of goals you guys would be raving.
