Tavares and Streit on All-Star Game ballot

 John Tavares and Mark Streit are the two Islanders present on this year's All-Star Game ballot.

Yes, the same Mark Streit that suffered a shoulder injury this preseason and has yet to play a game this season (and likely won't until at least March). I mean no disrespect to Streit, who I'm sure would be having an All-Star worthy season had he not been sidelined this September, but I find this selection puzzling.

Why not defenseman James Wisniewski instead? With a team-leading 12 points this season (2 goals, 10 assists), Wisniewski is tied for sixth among defensemen in scoring.

No practice today for the Islanders, who flew into LA late last night after a 2-1 shootout loss to San Jose,
