10 missing faces

It will be 27 weeks between games for the Isles, dating back to their 4-3 shootout win over the Rangers last April 4. Richard Park had the deciding goal in the shootout.

Ten of the 20 players on the Isles roster that night are not on the current roster.

Who are they?

(I'll answer that, because "Where are they" would take some digging)

Rob Davison
Bryan Berard
Matt Keith
Kip Brennan
Drew Fata
Josef Vasicek
Jeremy Colliton
Miro Satan
Michael Morrison
Wade Dubielewicz

(Sutton and Campoli are both on IR, but neither played that night.)

The 10 who did play (at least 9 expected to play tonight):
Trent Hunter
Richard Park
Bill Guerin
Sean Bergenheim
Kyle Okposo
Radek Martinek
Jack Hillen
Freddy Meyer
Frans Nielsen
Blake Comeau

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick. Eric has worked the Stanley Cup Finals four times, and celebrated his 26th anniversary as the statistician on Islander home telecasts on January 21, 2008.
