Bottom Three

And then we come to the bottom three players on the New York Islanders roster. There isn’t much surprise here. If you’ve been watching Islanders games this season none of these names should shock you.

3. Anthony Beauvilier (0.38)

Maybe the thought of sending Anthony Beauvillier to the AHL has some merit. The 20-year-old just hasn’t been the same since last year. That third line just isn’t clicking at moment. Maybe the Isles should try Beau at centre and Nelson on the wing. Cause what’s going on right now just isn’t clicking.

Beau has the second lowest points per 60 on the team (only Hickey is lower), he’s got the fourth lowest Corsi ranking on the team. Only the two others on this list and Nikolay Kulemin are lower.

Just nothing is going well for Beauvillier. Maybe a stop in the AHL could be good for him.

2. Dennis Seidenberg (0.08)

Dennis Seidenberg isn’t up to snuff this season. That’s as light as I can put it. With Sebastian Aho called up from the AHL after an injury sidelined Johnny Boychuk for a few weeks, there’s no reason to play Seidenberg.

His 0.08 game score is the result of 8.13 individual Corsi-for, a -4 penalties differential, and 0.81 points per 60.

Hopefully, Garth Snow can add some depth defensemen at the trade deadline so he can minimize his usage in the future.

1. Alan Quine (-0.83)

The only player on the New York Islanders roster with a negative rating. It seems unfair based on how much Quine has played (only Steve Bernier and Shane Prince have played less). But that’s what this is all about.

Quine is a good scratch pad player. Bring him in when there’s an injury on the fourth line for a few games and that’s it. And even then, that might be much for Quine.
