This week's "assignment:"

Who is the most underrared Islander of all time?

Last month, we ran a top ten list of underrated Islanders and continue to receive emails asking if we have had our heads examined. So now it's on you. Here's your chance. Just one Islander. Define "underrated" any way you'd like -- didn't get enough press, didn't get respect when it came to league honors, a player perceived as a grinder who you thought was so much's up to you.

Just do it in 50 WORDS OR LESS and send it here.

Your deadline is Thursday, October 27 at 10:00 am. The ten best entries will be published on and the winning writers will receive an Islanders T-shirt.

To be eligible to win the prize, please include your full name, address, daytime telephone number, email address and anything else you want to tell us.

Good luck!
