Where's the D?

The only thing that I have seen that is consistent from the Islanders are the frequent injuries to this defense. Now it looks like DiPietro may be out against the Rangers, although it is not official yet. The Islanders record is 2-5. Hardly a time to panic. But too many penalties, and a lack of top minute defenseman, hinders any kind of stability on this team. Most teams don't use injuries as excuses, which is crap. That's why we have a top pairing, 4th, 5th, and 6th defenseman.

Some can make the argument that we're not scoring as much. Guess what: we're on pace for better than last year!!!! But time is still out on the offense, especially the younger players. The veterans are doing their part, soon the kids will have to step up.

This team needs to get, and stay healthy if the Islanders even want to compete the rest of this year. Time is not running out, but the amount of defenseman that is team has is.........
