Roster Set...for now

Posted 1:31 PM ET | Comments 0
It's done. Of course, as I sit and wait for people to get back to me on who is on the ice in Syosset, the Islander's finally announce it:

DEFENSE Berard waiting for trade to make room there is likely

They are carrying 8 for now

2 Aaron Johnson
8 Bruno Gervais
14 Chris Campoli
24 Radek Martinek
25 Andy Sutton
32 Brendan Witt
44 Freddy Meyer
47 Marc-Andre Bergeron


7 Trent Hunter
10 Richard Park
11 Andy Hilbert
12 Chris Simon (eligible to return Oct. 13)
13 Bill Guerin
16 Jon Sim
18 Mike Sillinger
20 Sean Bergenheim
26 Ruslan Fedotenko
27 Darryl Bootland
63 Josef Vasicek
81 Miroslav Satan
89 Mike Comrie

And, I won't bother with the goalies. Rick and Dubie are the men there.


Basically, it simply defies logic to why Hilbert sits on a 2nd line. I understand if Tambs needs another year or simply between him and Bergie, Bergie gets a spot. But Hilbert on a 2nd line? Not enough production and not enough skill to be the pivot, which is why Vasicek was gotten. So what gives?

Where is Bryan Berard, you ask? Waiting for the Isles to move a player to make room. Berard is still likely to be on this team.
