I hope Trotz lays into them a bit for last night. Personally, I agree that it's one game, games like that happen, and the world's not ending because of it. But...that's for us to say. I think the coaches have to say something different to the players, and the easy one is, that game is the best example anyone could give that this team isn't good enough to win if it's taking a period or two off. They looked really good in the third, but they don't have the firepower to just turn it on for one period and come back at will. That second period is what lost them the game. First period was OK...the effort was there, but the execution was a little off. In the second, though, they got nothing done. I'd love to know if Trotz said something to Barzal between the second and third, because he looked phenomenal after that.

As for Bailey, I agree with pretty much everyone here. When he's bad, he's maddeningly bad, but, as was also mentioned, there's really nothing they can do about that apart from flipping Bailey and Eberle, which would just transfer the problem to the other top-six line. If Ho-Sang would have been able to pull his head out of his ass, there'd be some options, but I suspect no one here would be thrilled about bumping Komarov or Clutterbuck into the top-six, which is all they have right now.

It's that time for some fuuking rumors again

Was also hearing tonight that #NHLBruins and #Isles are two teams #GoKingsGo F Ilya Kovalchuk would be "inclined to" waive his no-movement clause for.

Teams will be so afraid of Leo, Fili, and Bailey in the playoffs. How this for nice things?

Doesn't meant there aren't issues, but yeah on the whole I'm not really concerned. Bailey's lack of effort is really infuriating though.

Let’s be honest the offense is ok. I mean they are not lighting up the lamp much. This year it’s been defense and goaltending.This team still needs help up front

EK is back with Brassard and stating the Isles need a 2C. Is Brassard really a 2C at this point?

He has enough points that someone will think he is a steal at that price. He is movable...

He was fairly terrible with the pens. Only reason you make a play for him is to see if he can find his game again and have success in the PO’s like he has in the past. Not big on the idea in all honesty but it’s not far fetched to think Lou would do it.

Can see him being traded as part of a package. Have a feeling Lou probably feels the same way about him as this thread😂

I rather have Duchene of course. I just think Brassard is more a 3C at this point. He would be a deadline type pickup though.

I still feel like Lou will pull off a "wow" trade and we will end up with someone that has not been talked about a lot (Getzlaf...PLEASE!!)

I'll take Brassard over Kovy as at least he is a C. Rather have Stone or Duchene.

Lou has to see what he can get done without moving Dobson, Wilde, or Wahlstrom. If the big splash needs to wait for the summer so be it.
