He went through all sorts of dark stuff during the last one apparently. Hopefully this one is mild or something and he doesn't have to suffer through that again.

I believe he had an allergic reaction to the concussion meds he was taking and that messed him up and maybe ever put him in a coma

It's a tough call Potvin. I can see Lou giving this team this run and if they are out early in the playoffs then Lou can go big this offseason.
- ses111

I don’t think anyone, even the organization, saw this season coming. I’m not going to use the term House Money because that’s kind of a stupid way to think but I can’t see Lou overreaching for anyone because he likes the guys in the room now.

And, I saw a few of you comment on this too...not Duchene’s hugest fan. I can do without him.

This may seem quite crazy but I can see Lou doing nothing. He’s been quoted saying he won’t do something JUST to do it. This team has needs though, I just don’t know how much Lou wants to (frank) with the chemistry.
- potvin05


I can definitely see Lou not messing with things at the deadline. I'll be happy if they add a big name or whatever, but I won't be mad if this is the team they go with, either...bonus if he hammers out a contract or two for some of the pending FAs.

Probably Pelech, but it could also be time to give a veteran like Boychuk a rest. The Isles' d-men play a physical game, block shots, etc., and generally take a beating. Old-timers take longer to heal than these younger guys. They need Boychuk 100% healthy for what now appears all, but certain, the playoffs.

So I expect to see Hickey and Pelech rotating in and out of the line up, and at times spelling Boychuk and any other d-man who gets a little too battered.

They're also playing 3 games in 4 days. Again.

I gotta say. With all due respect to Dan and Noel because I enjoyed what they wrote, I think we’re better off without a blogger because it is refreshing to not have all the site’s dunces poopposts here and a few of you actually write halfway intelligent poop or provide useful links.

I’m with you. The power play needs help, but with this coaching staff, I’m confident(!!!!) for the first time in ages that not only can we be successful, but that we can sustain it.

I know chiefs says it a lot and I laugh every time he writes it...you wait for something bad to happen or the eventual losing streak because it’s ingrained in us as Isles fans but I just don’t see it. We have something we haven’t had since Arbour, Hall-of-Fame level coaching.

I agree Chiefs.

I think Barry's message in the room before the game will be don't be caught up in the whole JT thing and play your game.

You run around undisciplined and give the Leafs a PP is exactly what the Isles don't want to do.

I think you will see the CCM line start the game and crank up the volume with some unforced good hits.

I am leaving Fl. just to be back for this game. I can't wait.

PPP or Phuck Pajama Putz

- nyisles7

Yeah the irrational hate is really only for the fans. I'd rather not see a bunch of vindictive babies running around the ice hacking him and getting off their game. If someone has the chance to line him up and dummy him with a big, clean hit then great. But I'd rather deal with that PP as little as possible and suffocate them to death at ES.

If Lou can make a deal around Bailey and a #1 I'm all in. I'm not interested in giving up any top prospect for a rental. Isles are not at the stage where you give up a lot for the last piece to the puzzle.

If toews sits all due respect to Trotz but that would be a moronic move of epic proportions. This defense has been arguably the best it has been in years without Thomas Hickey. There’s a reason for that.
- Cptmjl






Yes Hickey should sit. Him singularly not playing has made this TEAM play better TEAM defense than it has in years. Bravo. Toew's won't sit it will be Pelech unless of course Pelly is in trade discussions then they will play him.

The players might have taken it a little personally at first, especially, considering they’re all supposedly friends but that’s long done. Nature of the business.

Yep here we go. Never said him SINGULARLY sitting was a reason for it but we were just fine without him. Best we’ve been im quite some time.

Someone on Twitter found a condo bought by a Matt duchenne in nashville
- Upstate_isles


Nashville makes sense but buying a condo before a deal is made or signed? Did he go shopping in-between his games?

Sounds like the guy who said JHS was late again and thats why he was sent down.

Amazing the shat people spew

Me neither. Colorado tried and tried and finally traded him. Ottawa gave up a boatload for him, and now also wants to dump him?? Plus, there are rumors that he wasn't well-liked by his teammates?? Why mess with a locker room that has obvious good chemistry? Especially for what it would cost......Pass....

Looks like Ladd’s ready, Hickey’s not.

I know this isn’t a popular opinion but I’m happy Ladd is back. He’s a 3rd liner and I’m fine with that. He was actually ok before he got hurt.

More like they have to dump him due to him not wanting to sign there. With that said I’m not huge on the idea either. My one hang up is us having zero center depth and none in the pipe line besides Otto. I wouldn’t lose sleep if we didn’t get him or if we did. On the fence with it.
