|Mike Comrie, Bill Guerin and Ruslan Fedotenko |
While Ted Nolan won't commit yet to announcing his line combinations to begin the 2007-08 season, there's already an indication of what we might see to start the year.
Team Gillies – one of three Islanders squads at Training Camp – which did not in participate in today's scrimmage has the No. 1 line of Mike Comrie centering Ruslan Fedotenko on the left and captain Bill Guerin on the right. Tomorrow will be there first time playing together in a competitive setting.
Team Trottier and Team Bossy went toe-to-toe this morning, and the top lines on their respective teams was no less interesting.
For Team Trottier, Josef Vasicek effectively was the pivot on a line with Jeff Tambellini on the left and Miroslav Satan on the right. Tambellini scored the first goal of the scrimmage off a pretty feed from Vasicek.
On the other side, Mike Sillinger was reunited with Trent Hunter on the right, with new Islander Jon Sim on the left. Also for Team Bossy, Richard Park centered Chris Simon, who took left wing and Sean Bergenheim.
The defense pairings saw Chris Campoli with Bruno Gervais, Brendan Witt and Marc-Andre Bergeron, Andy Sutton with Radek Martinek and Freddy Meyer with Aaron Johnson.
Stay tuned for more from Moncton.
