Welcome Back Radek

Earlier today, the Islanders announced that they had signed defenseman Radek Martinek to a one year contract valued at $600,000.

Martinek had been practicing with the Islanders recently having to sign a waiver before practice each time.  After Lubomir Visnovsky's injury over the weekend this signing seemed like a forgone conclusion.

I have been saying since Visnovsky went down that I though we would sign Martinek.  In all honesty, I am surprised we waited this long to sign him.  I wonder if he will be able to get into game action right away or if he will need some more time in practice.
