With the addition of Dennis Seidenberg the New York Islanders are going to have some difficult roster decisions ahead of them. Brian Erni had his take on the decision to sign Seidenberg.
It certainly adds depth to the Isles d-group. It’s an insurance blanket if Johnny Boychuk continues to be banged up and or if Ryan Pulock regresses. He’s also a better version of Marek Zidlicky/Brian Strait for that 7th d-man role.
Although this time is a bit different, the Islanders already have a crowded group of player on one-way contracts and there are limited roster spots available. In order to make room for Seidenberg to they try to get J.F. Berube to clear waivers?
