Nilsson gets the call

According to Arthur Staple of Newsday via Twitter:

Anders Nilsson will join tomorrow. No plans to look outside org yet, though Nabokov injury seems to be 4+ weeks.


I was talking to a few Isles fans today about what might happen in terms of looking for a goalie via trade. For now, there’s no need to make a quick decision yet. The Bridgeport Sound Tigers do not play until Friday so at the very least Nilsson will keep the backup seat warm on Tuesday until a long term solution occurs. Nilsson by no means deserves a call up, but perhaps a game or two could help with his confidence. As for who the Isles could deal for does depend on how long Nabby will be out. 4+ weeks is a long time but if Poulin can handle the load, there may not be a need for a trade.

Paul Kreischer is the lead writer for Isles Talk. He is 38 years old and lives in Northeast Pennsylvania, but grew up on Long Island (Mineola) and is a die-hard Islanders fan. Paul has been blogging since 2006 for other various hockey sites as their Islanders correspondent. He’s a big fan of building a team through the draft, similar to the dynasty years and today’s team. His two memorable games that he has gone to were Bossy’s 50 in 50 and the Bates penalty shot. He has played just about every sport, but still continues playing basketball and bowling. He was a right winger and goaltender growing up so you’ll see him go by Netminder39 on many of the boards. He's more of an optimist on most things in life, loves to talk NHL and Islanders all the time, so drop a line.
