JOSH BAILEY SENT TO BRIDGEPORTStruggling third-year center "on loan" to AHL

10:25 am – NYI have sent Josh Bailey “on loan” to Bridgeport of the AHL. If Bailey plays one more game in the NHL, he has to clear waivers before being sent down. Gutsy move by Garth Snow, who has watched Bailey go pointless in 13 games despite major icetime. A step back for Bailey, who was rushed as an 18-year-old by the Islanders, but he’s a mature young man who can handle this. Comments.
