Newsday: Greg Logan's article is on Doug Weight's loss to the club with Scott Gordon's post game comments in New Jersey before Thursday's announcement.
Mr Logan had some speculation on what this means in terms of lines, callups or future trade value (Isles did not practice Thursday) and noted the man games lost to injury is now at three hundred and fifty.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
I'm going to start tracking this being that the sidebar has the roster and I separate the players on IR.
Start at three hundred fifty, add the number of players out injured starting Saturday which currently is at nine counting Trent Hunter and Mark Streit.
Even when Streit-Hunter return expect to add at least seven more man games lost to injury every game in foreseeable future.
Twenty eight games left x seven= One hundred ninety six more man game injuries added to three hundred fifty.
Grand total=Five hundred forty six if Hunter and Streit return Saturday.
By comparison last year's club that was worst in the league lost four hundred two games to injury by comparison with hardly enough bodies to finish the season.
# 18 C-Mike Sillinger ** out season 1/27

# 93 C-Doug Weight ** 2/12 Six weeks MCL
# 44 D-Freddy Meyer * IR groin 1/8
# 17 D-Thomas Pock ** IR Hand 2/4
# 25 D-Andy Sutton ** IR Broken foot
# 39 G-Rick DiPietro IR ** out season 1/20
