I've got news for the know-nothing Islanders: the most impressive players the last several games have been Andy Hilbert, Steve Tambellini... and Tim Jackman. Jackman has played hard, he's played smart, he's stuck up for his teammates. Naturally, he's demoted. The person who needs more time in the minors is Martinek. He hasn't made one play since he's been back.

You're showing your age- Back in the early 80's Hector Marini did make an impact when he came up- Hit, fought, scored.....good team player- I remember him coming up with Billy Carroll who also had a good run with the Isles- MacGuigan and McKendry had their shots but never really brought any real value to the line-up...Marini and Carroll absolutely did-

Obviously a move to improve the fourth line.

Why must this team be soft? Are they against having a tough team?

This guy will definitely help the Isles. They're definitely exceeding expectations.

Nothing against Silly...but everytime this team tries to take a step forward...Gordon has to try work back a player coming back from injury.

why do you think they are rushing Sillinger back? When he played for Detroit he played with grit, scored, hit will in the netural zone, good defense. His only problem is that he tends to lead his hits with his face.

With Jackman gone there isn't anyone on this team that could hold his own in a fight with a cub scout. With Silly back we might win some faceoffs, but we'll get the s..t beat out of us in any fights.

HAHAHAHAHAHA no. I'm with you on Hilbert and Jackman, but Tambellini has not been impressive at all this season. BTW, Steve hasn't been playing much hockey lately, what with his office job with the Oilers. I think you're going for Jeff.

Silly said it himself
"I'm no miracle worker".
They only thing this does is up the average age of the team.
I hope he doesn't get hurt because he was rushed back.

I like Sillinger, but why do they have to re-assign 2 players for Silly to get back into the lineup? Jackman is physical and playing well right now and Colliton wasn't doing a bad job himself.

Plus Gordon's system is gonna tear Silly's hips to pieces with all the stop and go skating. This is supposed to be a youth movement, let's stick with it.

Tim Jackman deserves a spot on the team.

While we are at it we can call up Randy "Dead" Wood.

Colliton is the one that went back to Bpt because of Sillie coming back, not Tim.

Just to let you know, Tim Jackman is already back practicing with the Islanders again- so theres a good chance he (and possibly Fritz as well) will be in the lineup along with Sillinger.

Oh... and kallur over in Halcottsville, NY: I can deal with you calling Steve Tambellini impressive, he does fine work in that Edmonton office and if you find it impressive then good for you. But if you actually meant to say that Jeff frickin Tambellini has been impressive, then you are simply out of your MIND. Tambellini has been nothing other than something that starts with S and ends with a HIT. Only he doesnt hit. He doesnt get good shots. The only thing that goes up on his stat sheet is GP and PIM. He has played more than one hundred NHL games and his career total points is still in its TEENS.

Hey Metalchick, I wonder if he is referring to the same Tambellini that never skates into the "traffic" on the ice, and if he had eggs in his pockets, he would play 3 periods and never braek any!
