Islanders Mark Streit out for 6 months with shoulder injury

  • Katie Strang of Newsday: New York Islanders defenseman Mark Streit will be out for 6 months, and might require shoulder surgery. He may have torn is labrum and rotator cuff, and possibly dislocated it.
  • TSN: The Islanders told TSN that Streit will be out indefinitely until he’s able to visit a specialist. Teammate Matt Moulson cross-checked Streit and he fell awkwardly into the boards.
  • Chris Botta via twitter: Speculation of the Islanders acquiring Sheldon Souray from the Edmonton Oilers is “not consistent with team’s, um, recent approach.”
  • Bob McKenzie via twitter: According to McKenzie’s understanding, the Islanders don’t have any interest in Souray, his salary doesn’t make sense.
  • Jim Matheson via twitter: Islanders seem ‘lukewarm’ on acquiring Souray, but on re-entry at $4.5 million would they be interested?

    Wow, how bad does Moulson feel today (and for the season?).

    Moulson must feel horrible. Would be funny if they traded him for a defenseman.

    These things happen. Streit is a great d-man and will be missed. I’d try to pickup Redden on waivers.

    You clearly havent watched Wade Redden play hockey. He isnt worth the league minimum.

    Redden would be $3.25 million on re-entry … That’s still a stretch for him …

    Now I’ve asked this question before, How is Sather still the GM?

    How bad Redden is right now? It’s been a while since I last watched him play…way back in his Ottawa days where he was very good.
