#islanders hot topic Who has been the most impressive Islander so far this season?
I would go with Matt Martin. Up top in the NHL with hits w/o a Shanny fanny whooping
video (yet), and contributing quality mins.
Martin certainly has really had an impressive year, establishing himself as an NHL'er. A lot of people wondered if he was a definite to make the line-up out of camp with young guys pressing. I think it's safe to say he's not going anywhere.
I think I will have to say Parenteau. His numbers are excellent, on pace for an even better year than last year. He's versatile, can play on any line and has become a real team player.
Im happy for PAP, I always felt he got no love but came to work each day and did his job.
To me it is PAP or Hamonic both players building on their performance from last year. PAP is putting up the points and Hamonic has been playing some strong smart D.
Martin, PA and Hamonic have all been great this season so I don't think you can really pick one from the other on who has been more impressive.
I know he is currently injured but what about Montoya? The guy was bought in for nothing and has become a #1 goalie for us and was playing some great hockey before he got hurt.
