Martin Biron is the current Islanders backup Goaltender. Biron was 1 of 2 Goalies signed by the Islanders in the '09 off-season. The other was Dwayne Roloson.
Biron was signed as assurance by the Isles, while franchise Goalie Rick DiPietro was nursing his injuries. It was inevitable that when DiPi was healthy again, Biron would be moved.
Biron has struggled with the Islanders this year; just 2 wins in 17 games. But, don't discredit his career. He has twice reached the 30 win mark, most recently in '08 with the Flyers. His best year was when he posted 31 wins and a 2.22 GAA with the Buffalo Sabres.
Biron is said to be a player that is loved throughout the locker room. He's a funny jokester but more importantly an experienced veteran. What team making a playoff push wouldn't love him?
As DiPietro takes steps closer to dressing for the Islanders again, I ponder where we can send Biron and who we can get in return?
