This weeks poll hits the final day and asked everyone what player would you like to see recalled for the first time in 2008-09?
The vote right now favors Trevor Smith.
Sorry about misspell on Jesse Joensuu, once a poll goes in it's locked after a few hours and cannot be altered beyond how long it runs. I did not notice it at the time.
Trevor Smith-F 17 (47%)
Mike Iggulden-F 6 (16%)
Jesse Joensuu-F 12 (33%)
Ben Walter-C 6 (16%)
Sean Bentivoglio-F 2 (5%)
Dustin Kohn-D 3 (8%)
Andrew MacDonald-D 2 (5%)
Kurtis McLean-C 2 (5%)
I voted for Smith, Iggulden, Joensuu. Give me some players with some offensive skills who can finish, we know Jackman, Fritz, Thompson, Park, Hilbert will not be doing that on a regular basis here.
If Sim sits it should not be for the players he sat for against Pittsburgh.
For those interested here is the pre WJC information for each country and where they will have camp. I put the exhibition games for all teams in the WJC section.

NYI Fan Central Update:
Some changes to the media feed widget on the sidebar.
I added in the Times, News & Post feeds (even if we see AP coverage) to bulk up the section and cut out the Islander website top stories (too many repeats/ads) keeping only the headlines feed.
Ct Post does not have a Sound Tiger centric feed for it's newspaper, only Mr Fornabaio's blog which is on the sidebar.
