So I watched the game this morning (listened to radio broadcast last night). Thought the Oilers actually played pretty well, but as usual just no finish outside of the big 3.

I absolutely loved how Lee took ZERO poop from Nurse, and did more than hold his own in that tussle. You could really tell that he was all fired up after that.

McDavid is super fast. Oilers did play pretty well. Lee had to be frustrated not scoring for a while. Lee hardly fights but he held his own with Nurse.

Absolutely. No need to rush the kid. See if he can keep doing what he’s doing.

Judging by the big goofy ass grin when he scored, I'd say he had been "somewhat" frustrated.

Excellent tanner blog up stating how we’re really not good defensively, Trotz isn’t a good coach, and we are just another lucky team. Best GA in the league and it’s all because of Lehner but more because of luck. 😂

Unless there’s last minute change, the Ottawa Senators plan on trading Matt Duchene. Mark Stone’s future in Ottawa should also be determined early this week, well in advance of the trade deadline.

Gonna be interesting to see what they end up taking. Can’t see any team giving up too much for a rental

The competition could drive the price up to stupid levels, but teams are overpaying less and less these days. They'll get at least a first and a really good prospect. If they can get a 1st + Eeli Tolvanen out of NSH that'd be a hell of a return.

And that’s exactly what they’ll get, if not a bit more. Poile is going all in and has said as much.

Yeah I know and I gave him a couple. He'll probably get one more out of me when he replies with some arrogant, douchey insult. He's a living, breathing, stereotype of all I hate about people today and I'll just leave it at that.

I cannot believe how bad his comments are in that blog. If the Isles were giving up 50 shots like last year then you can give most of the credit to Robin. Barry and his system are keeping the high quality shots down. Robin and Thomas have played very well but would not be doing this without the great coaching from Barry and Co.

Ses, ses, ses.

You clearly don't see what is really happening here. The Islanders are bad because James' stats say they are. Don't pay any attention to things like the standings 70% of the way through the season. That isn't important. Any team can get lucky for 58 games.

You need to be smarter and pick up on the subtle nuances of his work. He's "extremely educated" so it might be tough for simpletons like you and I.

When he says "The Islanders are not a good hockey team and Lou Lamoriello makes dumb decisions" he really means "they're not that bad and of course Lou has done some good things that have made them better"
