Islanders on Waivers: Wishart, Reese, Frischmon, Wallace, Marcinko

Nothing to claim here, move along.

[Final Update: All five players have cleared waivers.]

According to Newsday's Arthur Staple and the Post's Brett Cyrgalis [update: now confirmed by the team], five New York Islanders will be hitting exposed to waivers today: Tomas Marcinko, Trevor Frischmon, Tim Wallace, Ty Wishart and Dylan Reese.

None of those are a surprise except possibly Wishart, who was acquired for Dwayne Roloson last winter and played well down the final stretch of 2010-11. You'd have to think a position was there for the taking for Wishart, but at least in the small sample of a couple preseason games he did not grab it. Still, Wishart becomes one of the more interesting names to hit the waiver wire league-wide.

Meanwhile, despite last night's contrasts this doesn't necessarily mean that youngsters like Matt Donovan or Calvin De Haan have leapt Wishart: Those guys do not require waivers, Wishart does. More will become clear as they divide up into separate groups for the rest of camp. It does make you figure a Steve Staios signing is imminent.

 

If they clear they'll be Bridgeport-bound at the start of the season, but of course Staple notes that the teams are in a combined camp right now anyway.

My favorite quote from the Coliseum piece:

"It should come as no surprise that at the end of the day there is no overall consensus on direction," Eidler said. The announcement came just hours after Hempstead Town Attorney David Levy asked to be removed from the task force, saying the group's mission had "morphed" from advising Mangano on an RFP to issuing a plan of its own.

Nassau politics for the win!

 

The Day in Suspensions and non-Suspensions:

Finally, not suspension- or Islanders-related but fun nonetheless: Quisp is cracking me up with his Drew Doughty coverage. Bummer for Kings fans. So glad all the Islanders are signed before camp.
