Bailey, Clutterbuck, and Ladd get the A's.

Geez...no love for Leddy or Boychuk?

Of course Lee might bolt at season's end like the captain before him, but I'm guessing they'll try to avoid that.

yeah, fans have been guessing all summer that they'll only keep one of Lee or Eberle. They're all saying this looks like the decision is made on who is going.
Lee deserves it. I like the way the did it. He had no clue it was happening. Right after he was told he was handed a cell phone to speak to the most recent great Islanders Captain- Denis Potvin.
But Lee was smiling like a kid on Christmas morning putting the jersey on. Dude looks so happy and proud, it's great.

Not sure about giving Ladd an A. He'll rarely play.
Clutterbuck??? He argues with refs too much. Kind of dumb, unless they think it will chill him out.
Bailey deserves it.

Well technically the guys wearing the letters are allowed to squawk at the refs so maybe they're just giving him some cushion. :lol:

Maybe. I just feel like he is the wrong person to have represent the team in that fashion.
