In his years with the Isles, Radek Martinek played more than 70 games only once (74 in 2005-06).
This season is not starting off any differently in Columbus. Martinek has missed the last four games with a concussion suffered 10 days ago in a game against Detroit.
GM (and former Islander) Scott Howson told the Columbus Disptach today that he is still experiencing symptoms and remains sidelined indefinitely.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
