The Islanders tipped that Dwayne Roloson is starting. The Ducks have made various minor roster assignments I've not the energy to get into. ... When I speak of Earl Sleek's 'tooning I speak of gems like this from when James Wisniewski was signed-and-dumped within an afternoon.
And a matter of importance: You know what I realized as I was going through the FIG (First Islanders Goal) pools? The Islanders losing streak coincides exactly with the seven games we've been doing this. It's true. So not only do our season projections lead to immediate injury, our FIG pools lead to immediate futility. I hope JPinVA is happy, since it was his idea.
By the way, Hakker leads as the only one to be right twice -- riding Nielsen and Wisniewski all the way to the karmic bank. I'll be watching this game but on godson-sitting duty, so I'm not sure if I'll have a computer in reach. Go Islanders. Nielsen at 15:51 is my FIG pick.
