As we all know, or are about to find out, the Islanders just acquired Brandon Davidson from the Edmonton Oilers for a third round pick. Hopefully Davidson can give the Isles defense a major upgrade with his abilities and skill. So far in the season, he has 3 goals and 2 assists in 36 games. Hopefully he helps prove that Garth Snow won this trade, or we wasted that third rounder.

Davidson is 26 years old, so he should still have a lot of strength and ability in his game. Otherwise, he is just another one of the isles “EH” defenseman (if you know what I mean). Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk will still be the top d-men, along with the rest of the d is what I’m trying to get at. So far, from what I have heard, he is a pretty good defenseman. He supposedly is a tight d-man, shot blocker, good puck handler, and a good shooter. He wore #88 with the Oilers, but I’m not sure what number he’ll wear with the Isles. It maybe the same number, and it maybe different. I just hope he can make an impact on our defense and show that Snow made a good move, and that maybe this will be a start of a more upgraded d crew. Hopefully Davidson will give the isles a major boost in their game and defense, otherwise…
