New York Islander Fan Central | 2/27/2008 06:32:00 PM | | | | | |
Islanders website: Has a state of the Isles after the trade deadline where Ted Nolan talks about his club his new defender, Rob Davison and Brendan Witt returning to the lineup no later on Saturday but did travel to Atlanta today with the team.

Mike Sillinger's surgery was successful.

Anaheim Ducks Website: Has Marc-Andre Bergeron's comments about being traded after his first practice with his new team.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio had a blog on some of the players listed for clear day in the AHL tomorrow which include former prospects Robert Nilsson and Petteri Nokelainen.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
AHL clear day is basically a list each team submits this time of year (Thursday for this season) listing it's AHL playoff-eligible rosters. New players can be added only after all the depth on the list is used up on an emergency basis.

I will post Sound Tigers list tomorrow when available. Report general manager Bryan Murray fired John Paddock as coach of the Senators and will assume both jobs for the rest of the season.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Seems a bit unfair with the injuries and Murray a part of the problem with no resolving his goal tending issues for the coach. Only thing I know is Bryan Murray gets less out of more come playoff time and never wins the big game back to the days Al Arbour beat him with Washington. Moves like this never work to where a club wins a cup.

I saw the reports in the Philadelphia Inquirer and Courier about a Ruslan Fedotenko trade and the Isles supposedly wanting a first rounder among a bunch of things the Flyers attempted to do and did not consider it noteworthy for this blog because it seemed more like speculation with no direct quotes from any Flyer official specifically about Fedntenko and both articles included a bunch of possible trades.
