This is my first post on the Islanders Forum. Long time lurker, been a fan since the mid 70's when I was born and lived in NJ. Grew up in South Florida, now live in Nashville, TN. But I still love the Islanders, and the Predators for the Western Conference. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else was thinking that the Isles should start Poulin Tuesday night against the Canucks. Nabokov has started all but one of the 8 games played so far. At his age, he can't play 65-70 games and be worth anything at the end of the season. Poulin held his own against the Blackhawks, and Poulin starting might also send a wake-up call (much needed) to the defense to pay attention to detail so as to not embarrass Poulin and themselves with their lackadaisical play that they've shown lately. Frankly, Poulin has been in the minors long enough as I see it. It's time to find out if he can either sink or swim in the NHL. Maybe he's a keeper; maybe he's not. But I think the Canucks are not any scarier than the Blackhawks that the Isles should not be concerned and give the young man a start and Nabby some much needed rest.
