Group Description

A great New York Islanders NHL hockey discussion group. This is Islandersbestlist!

A place for Islander fans to have their say.

New Captain Bill Guerin has been providing the expected leadership and scoring. Forwards Miro Satan, Ruslan Fedotenko, Mike Comrie, Trent Hunter, Mike Sillinger and Richard Park have also been a strong contributors.

Brendan Witt, Radek Martinek, Bryan Berard and Chris Campoli have provided the defense and scoring from the backline that has capabily assisted superstar goaltender Rick DiPietro's stellar play.

At the most recent draft, with the 61st overall pick, the Islanders selected the fast-skating defenseman Mark Katic out of the OHL's Sarnia Sting. In 68 games with Sarnia in 2006-07, Katic was 5-35-40 along with a +8 rating.

Mark is a defenseman made for the new NHL. His vision and puck ability are high end. He has good awareness and has smart playmaking ability. Mark's forte is to control the game on the rush. He is a talented puck distributor on the power play.

With the 76th selection, the Islanders chose Lincoln Stars forward Jason Gregoire in the third round. Playing in his first season in the USHL, Gregoire posted totals of 16-20-36 in only 32 games. His +28 rating was first on the team during the regular season. Gregoire led the team with four goals in the 2007 playoffs.
