This Time, Trevor Gets Ten
On Wednesday night, his first night back on the ice, he was flying so fast during warm-ups that my 15-year-old Olympus couldn't catch him. Warm ups is the only time Trevor Gillies can really skate on the ice he loves.
His ice time on Wednesday didn't last more than a blink. And after sitting for a nine-game suspension, Gillies will now sit out for ten. If he does come back to the Islander bench, it can't be before March 26th when the Flyers and their buses come to town.
In a strange twist of fate, the NY Islanders team photo for 2010-2011 was taken today at the Coliseum. Trevor was in Toronto. He will not be in the photo that will represent this year's Islanders for years to come.
But that is what a lot of people seem to want.
