I expect the Sharks v. Blues and Canucks v. Hawks to be the mostly hotly contested games.

Eye-catching story to me is Jordin Tootoo's return to Nashville.
I think he and Clune will have their second go-round.

For Crombeen's sake and safety, I sort of hope he doesn't fight Orr (or maybe even McLaren) and just sticks to Fraser or Brown.

I say there's a pretty good shot at a Brown-Crombeen LOCK. Brown doesn't have the best balance, and Crombeen doesn't have the best technique.

No way that Crombeen fights Orr. BJ has three other guys to choose from.

Too bad Labrie was sent down.

I think Brown's shoulder might still be bothering him. Otherwise I think he would've fought Strachan last night instead of McLaren. At any rate, Leafs should have the same lineup as last night as they're running on 2 straight shutouts, so Orr, Brown, McLaren, Fraser all in.

Asham vs Prust is definitely a lock
Crombeen is gonna have no choice but to drop the gloves with the lineup Toronto
puts out there. I can see him going with Brown even though it's probably not a good idea on his part.

Wow, Mashinter is in? He'll be begging White or Prust to go.

Yes Mashinter will want to go tonight, if he fights Prust the crowd might not be behind him. Prust was really liked and I remember when Orr came back to MSG the first time and fought Brashear the crowd was rooting for Orr. At least I was.

No what i mean is without Trevor Gillies, Zenon Konopka and Michael Haley in the lineup, Martin isn't going around sucker punching people (Max Talbot LOL) and the Isles are not as vicious as last year. I use to anticipate every Isles game because of those 4 lol. Now it's kinda blah. LOL just sayin...

You have no clue what you are talking about. Research what you wrote here, starting with what you think last years team was...

Hawks and especially Canucks like to fight more than almost anyone else in the western conference so could be good.

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.
