Isles' Gillies Will Have Meeting With League Office
News: Gillie will have a meeting with the NHL on Friday to discuss his hit on the Wilds' Cal Clutterbuck on Wednesday, according to Newsday.

Analysis: Gillies was given a game misconduct after hitting the Wilds' Cal Clutterbuck from behind. The hit was in retaliation for a boarding penalty that Clutterbuck took on the Islanders' Justin DiBenedetto. Gillies had just returned from a nine game suspension for an elbow to the head of the Penguins Eric Tangradi, his return may be short lived.

Analysis: Just an FYI if you use Gillies for penalty minutes (109 in 32 games). It's not a certainty that he'd be in the lineup when the Isles take on the Wild on Wednesday, but forward Michael Haley is banged up so that might be an in for Gillies.

News: Gillies, appearing in his 41st NHL game a bit more than two weeks shy of his 32nd birthday, scored his very first NHL goal against Robin Lehner of the Senators.
Analysis: It was certainly a lucky score, as Zenon Konopka's pass went off Gillies' skate and into the goal, but we're sure he'll take it. Gillies' prime fantasy contribution, of course, is PIM; he averages nearly three a game.
News: Gillies has not been guaranteed a roster spot, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Analysis: When Gillies signed a one-year, two-way contract during the offseason he wasn't promised anything. The addition of free agent Zenon Konopka also gives the Isles another "protector" and he doesn't have a two-way contract, so whether or not Gillies makes the team could come down to how many players the Isles want whose only value is with their fists.

Analysis: Gillies, who will turn 31 on Saturday, is expected to join the Islanders in time for their game in Philadelphia on Saturday. Gillies has appeared in just one NHL game, but Isles coach Scott Gordon recently has expressed a need to add size and toughness to the Isles' forward corps. Gillies is merely going to be a flier in leagues that reward heavily for PIM.
News: The Hurricanes assigned C Joe Jensen, LW Trevor Gillies and D Tim Conboy to Albany (AHL) on Tuesday.
Analysis: These players are nothing more than organizational depth for Carolina and should continue to be ignored in all Fantasy leagues.
