CLUTTERBUCK OFF IR
The New York Islanders have activated Forward Cal Clutterbuck from the IR.
The activation of Clutterbuck means that the team will have to make a roster move. The corresponding move was sending defenseman Griffin Reinheart back to his junior team in Edmonton.
The Islanders now have to figure out the line-up going forward. Do they sit Kyle Okposo or do they sit newcomer Pierre-Marc Bouchard? Personally, Okposo has done little since he arrived on the Island to warrant playing time on the top line. He gets too fancy and doesn't do the little things.
Pierre-Marc Bouchard, is in a tough situation, in my opinion. He has had a long successful career in Minnesota and fans on the Island don't seem to realize that. Fans are calling for him to be benched because he isn't producing. Let us be honest, he came to a new team over the summer and is still getting adjusted to a new system. Give him some time, the third line looks pretty solid so far through 3 games.
