Stay or Go: 2009-10 New York Islanders

New York Islander Fan Central | 4/08/2009 02:00:00 PM |
Today I give my final thoughts on who should stay or go entering 09-10 by trade or not being resigned and it will be done in a one sentence summary.

Sean Bergenheim-Stay, his scoring will finally catch up to overall play.
Jeff Tambellini-Stay, his physical play is creating room to finally produce.
Blake Comeau-Stay, his overall game needs scoring but the rest is solid.
Andy Hilbert-Go, read entry from a few days ago.
Richard Park-Go, Overall game or not, Isles have to get bigger.
Tim Jackman-Go, I know he's not going but a poor middle-weight who cannot produce?
Doug Weight-Go, Read the entry from a few days ago, it's decided he stays.
Kyle Okposo-Stay, obviously.
Frans Nielsen-Stay, three years on contract and point production getting better.
Nate Thompson-Go, why was he ever claimed with Walter, Colliton and Hennigar?
Mike Sillinger-Go, unless he wants to work for the team.
Dean McAmmond-Go, another spot for someone to develop who can produce.
Trent Hunter-Go, not happening but I would be listening to offers, second straight season of struggles where he disappeared on offense.
Josh Bailey-See Okposo.

Brendan Witt-Split, I'm listening to all offers but not giving him away.
Andy Sutton-Go, cannot/will not stay healthy despite excellent stretches.
Radek Martinek-Stay, his puck moving and one on one play are critical.
Mark Streit-Stay, can the Isles extend his four year deal even more fast enough?
Tomas Pock-Go, did a nice job when settled in but better options.
Freddy Meyer-Stay, when he's healthy he plays very well and still young.
Bruno Gervais-Stay, look what he's done with Streit or without Campoli.
Jack Hillen-Stay, has to be resigned as restricted free agent.

Joey MacDonald/Yann Danis-MacDonald, both have proven they can perform at high level for extended periods of time.

I'm still sticking with my minority poll choice of MacDonald because management picked him over Danis to start the season and it was right call at the time, management also picked MacDonald over Dubielewicz.
