Will Kieffer Bellows and Oliver Wahlstrom make the New York Islanders opening night roster? Who is going to be on the taxi squad? What will the defensive pairings look like?
Those are among the many questions people are asking as the Islanders prepare to finalize their opening night roster by 5 p.m. on Tuesday. There aren’t going to be too many surprises in store when decisions are finally made, but there will obviously be some disappointment if Bellows and/or Wahlstrom are left off the roster.
Especially considering how much praise the two, in particular, have received since on-ice workouts began last week.
