I would hope if the Sabres were around John would have supported them.

No, I actually used to root for the Rags during the Original Six era, because they were the home team. But they were always so pathetic. They would sometimes sign or trade for once great players near the end of their careers.........guys like Boom Boom Geoffrion........but they still sucked. Even when they started to improve in the late 60s, early 70s, they could never figure things out. Then the Islanders were formed in 1972, and the 1975 playoffs got me excited about what was truly my home team.

As recently as the 1986 playoffs, I remember rooting for the Rangers over the Flyers who I think had defeated the Isles in the 1st round. (Then the Habs knocked the Rangers out of the playoffs in the conference finals, and went on to win the Cup behind Patrick Roy's goaltending.)

Should John join Bailey in MDW's crawlspace?

Honestly I didn't catch panarin when I read it. He is the best player of the three and the one I want the most but don't see it this season
- Upstate_isles

Most likely not, but you never know. If CBJ do move him, he may want the 8th year to be available on his next deal. Plus Lou may value the extra few months of negotiating time if he were confident Panarin would want to be here.

I just wonder what lou will need to give up for him. Honestly the isles have a good system so they can afford to part with pieces especially for a proven point per game player over a long sample period. My only fear would be him walking

Was listening to NHL radio today and they have Vegas and the preds as a pure rental for panarin but the isles were also mentioned as a great fit although they thought more off season. Nice to be included for once

Figured Isles need to get rid of Ladd, Sens need roster players. the biggest problem is he has to prove he is Healthy and Productive before the trade deadline....i don't think that is probable... but if he can and a deal can be worked out with Sens for Stone that includes Ladd.... now thats a huge win win even if we have to give up a little in the futures

I think that ship has sailed.

By the way, I just read that when Pat Lafontaine got concussed during the playoffs, Ranger fans blocked the ambulance from leaving MSG and were rocking and banging on the sides of it? Honestly, I never knew that and that is So facked up!!

So basically they buy rentals now and then go after a big name to replace Tavares July 1st....makes sense.
Good time for us isles fans. For once it’s nice to be in the drivers seat. Lou has the history of making a splash and the isles have every ability to do so.

I have family and friends that keep asking me what happened to the Isles. They're actual pretty good this year. I tell them it's amazing what a real coach and management can do for a team.

It's a nice switch from the "How can you be a fan of that team?" crap I used to hear all the time.

It's a really good time. Especially knowing we have a GM that's willing to pull the trigger on a deal and not hide in his office playing with a box of puppies. Not only that, but has the resources, the chips and the cap space to do it.

Panarin is a career PPG player, that's dynamic talent. I think he's the best of the bunch. Stone is a two-way beast but also has the lowest offensive output of the three. He's an unbelievable player, but I think Panarin is ahead of the other two by a significant margin.
- eichiefs9


Stone seems like the kind of player we would love every shift and every game. Panarin is the guy who gets a ton of points but will frustrate at times with effort on Back end. ... .Either would be a Monster pick up for us, but personally I would rather a Peca for this very good Defensive team over a Yashin... but WTF do I know.

And to know (at least think, anyway) that Lou will do what's best for the team. Not just his ego.
