updated at 12:15 pm - nate thompson was picked up on waivers by tampa bay. He will play for the lightning tonight. Good for him.

The only explanation for thompson being waived over everyday-scratch jeff tambellini is that garth snow must think tambellini has solid trade value. Scott gordon has played jeff in two games since dec. 9. Remember the islandersí win in the garden the day after christmas? Gordon gave thompson more than 16 minutes.

There go our playoff hopes.......

He was a good pk center. Isles biggest need right now, believe it or not, is a skilled enforcer.
