The Return of Andrew MacDonald. Flood remains (Bruno still out). Anton back in the "A." And on the Rangers side, no Avery or Callahan, but two spunky AHL scorers with funny names like P.A. Parentau and Corey "not John" Locke.
In net, a Mr. Dwayne Roloson, the only Islander who performed during the 5-0 no-show.
For you draft wonks: A fun running thread this week at nhl.com, covering Central Scouting's meetings to determine their final draft ranking, out April 7. The writers there also put some mock drafts together just for grins.
But first there is intradivisional business to take care of. Get it done tonight and Thursday, Isles, and I will waive many grievances.
Note: Due to some disastrous family planning -- no, not that kind of "family planning" -- I've got plans with some visiting fam'. So I can't catch any of this live, save for maybe the end if I'm lucky. So have fun. Let's. Go. Islanders.
