You reallize the Islanders were pretty soft last year except for Martin? All those guys you listed didn't play last year (Haley played a little). Plus, suckering Talbot was payback for the hit he threw on Blake Comeau
. It's not like Martin suckers someone all the time.
And now he has Carkner, Boulton, and Finley as back-up.
With the exception of John Tavares
, Matt Martin
is the only Islander it seems that never takes a shift off.
