The devastating news of the day is that the oft-injured, cursed-luck, gentlemanly Radek Martinek is out for the year with an ACL injury. Damn that man's luck. I know we're used to Martinek's injuries and inexplicable fragility and all that, but this is just thoroughly depressing. Meanwhile, Doug Weight is also out a week with the ol' "upper body" action. Blake Comeau replaces him. This is the thin margin of error I've mentioned; now we'll see what the Islanders depth is made of.

Last home game until the day before Thanksgiving. Come on boys, give the people what they want.

    What? It's a Martinek injury. I had lunch, brushed my teeth, went about my routine.
