Michael Fornabaio on possible changes

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio reported in his blog from Sound Tigers practice Monday morning that Tambellini, Nielsen and Brennan were not at practice and appear to be going to the Islanders, Tim Jackman is apparently in Bridgeport but sick.

Mr Fornabaio also reports rumor is there could be more to come, but that's it for the moment.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
A lot of players missing practice for Monday morning unless they are here.

I can see Brennan replacing Jackman if he's sick with Tambellini replacing Park and Nielsen replacing Hunter, but that's just speculation based on the Newsday article reporting players sick or hurt.

If I'm not mistaken Mike Sillinger has been playing hurt so Nielsen could be up to take his spot at center.

Greg Logan blogs around 5pm if he does an update and the Isles do their update after practice.

Usual good work from the Ct Post beatwiter.

  1. Word is Sillinger out three (3)weeks. That means someone should come up to stay for a while, perhaps Tambellini?

  2. My guess is changes were based on position:

    Nielsen-Sillinger center
    Tambellini-Park left wing
    Brennan-Jackman right wing

    I do think this is Nielsen's chance to take Sillinger spot for good or we would have seen Ben Walter who on paper was a little older and had gotten more chances.
