Time for the latest NYI Fan Central poll which revolves around the current group of defenders and who are the players out moving forward based on the depth chart.
For the purposes of this all the players signed and under contract for next season will be listed as one option meaning if you select this option there is someone from that group you feel should be traded and will not be back. Drew Fata, Matt Spiller will be considered AHL and not included.
Just to review Brendan Witt, Radek Martinek, Freddy Meyer, Andy Sutton, Chris Campoli and Jack Hillen are all signed for next season.
Bruno Gervais is restricted.
If Aaron Johnson is qualfied by the club he will be restricted, Columbus did not do this last summer.
Bryan Berard is unrestricted.
Rob Davison is unrestricted.
Fair to say going into this the Islanders desperately need a powerplay quarterback and a top two defender.
What would you do?
Of course if you care to comment here or on the message board it would make for a good discussion.
