Welcome to the NYIslesScene!

A blog by a long time New York Islanders fan who stays true to the fellas wearing orange, white and blue…but thinks the Islanders organization has some shaping up to do.

Simon, Bergeron On the Outs, Davison Picked Up From San Jose

Two players are heading to the West.

Left wing Chris Simon and defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron were both traded to Minnesota and Anaheim, respectively, for 6th- and 3rd- round picks in the 2008 draft.

Chris Simon, off of his 30-game suspension from December, had played just two games with the Islanders since then. He has 3 points in 28 games. Bergeron, meanwhile, was a valuable asset on the power play, with 9 goals- 8 with the man-advantage.

We wish them luck- hopefully they find new starts in the West.

In player acquisitions, defenseman Rob Davison was picked up from the Sharks for a 7th-round pick. Davison will hopefully add some much-needed depth to the defense, as three of the top D have been out with injuries, one of them for the remainder of the season.
