I intended to post this right after the Garth Snow press conference, but my website obviously had other ideas for me. While we were waiting for Garth to come in and address the media, we saw one of the equipment managers bring in Davison’s jersey – which sent us all into a flurry asking if he would be playing in tonights game.
Rob Davison will be wearing number 3, but only if his flight makes it here from Columbus on time. This is all per Chris Botta – so we consider this fact.
Here is a picture of Garth Snow from the press conference:
Tambellini is also on his way up from the Bridgeport Sound tigers – and like I said earlier, he will likely find his way into the lineup permanently. There are some who feel that Tambellini will suffer the wrath of an angry Ted Nolan now that Chris Simon has been traded. Ted was clearly unhappy that Simon was moved, but I felt that this was more of a positive than a negative. The Islanders showcased Simon earlier in the week – and only managed two penalties (not exactly spectacular).
It is unclear if Pittsburgh will have enough time to make the necessary callups or if their new players will make the game in time. Should be an interesting game to watch though.
The Islanders proved that they were more builders than sellers.
