Kurtis McLean Out for Season/Quick Hits

New York Islander Fan Central | 3/23/2009 04:38:00 PM
Islanders website: Announced forward Kurtis McLean is out for the season with a torn achillies.


Updated:

Media Blog: Reports the NHL Lottery Draft Drawing has been tentatively scheduled to take place on Tuesday, April 14.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
It should be noted McLean's injury was not counted on our man-games lost to injury recently because his status as an Islander or Sound Tiger has not been updated.

I will add in the games the Islanders played recently with McLean out to our official/unofficial number which would be five starting from the first game he missed on 3/12 in Montreal.

Total games lost to injury 505 so far, last season 402.
********************************************
* Not much to write about the New York Islanders and Queens anymore until the Lighthouse is off the radar and Charles Wang says he is willing to sell to someone who is willing to play there in the future or retain the club himself until 2015 (and keep absorbing losses) until NYC pays for an arena (not happening) as part of the development.

I do not see Charles Wang retaining ownership until 2015 without the Lighthouse project approved.

  1. That man games lost number is simply staggering. It's the equivalent of having 30% of your opening day lineup not play a single game.

    Almost a third! What team wouldn't be in the basement. And despite all that, they play relatively competitively.

    They need more vitamins and milk or something... wow...
