Islanders struggling to keep defensemen healthy

Full story: Newsday

Defense was supposed to be the Islanders' strength this season, but injuries and the resulting lineup shuffle have left them fragile at the blue line in more ways than one.

Martinek is pretty solid, as you said, when healthy. The Isles should get a veteran Dman to replace him.

isles should see if Schneider is available. Another Veteran D with PP ability. Imagine Streit and Schneider at the point with Weight, Guerin and Bailey - good movement, great shots, big body in front......and we can probably scoop him up for Tamby and a roll of tape.

Martinkek is a very under rated D man as far as the leauge is concerned, but he is always hurt since he has been here. Glass body Radek is stricken again. I am proud of what the team has done so far this year at least they are competitve on most games,much more than I was expecting.

They cannot compete for a full game, which only gets worse as the season wears on. At this point I would rather they just drop some dead weight bring up some young guys, if they lose they lose. Maybe we can get a good scorer in the draft.
