Lou is such a slacker.

Lou doesn't nap, he doesn't have enough time left in life to waste it

Barry Trotz told players before #Isles practice: "Everybody who is here right now deserves the opportunity to stay...I don’t anticipate anything. If this is the group we’re going with, we’re fine with it."

Staple updated his article from earlier:

The Kings were reportedly making most of their roster available and, of course, there’s the longtime Lamoriello-Ilya Kovalchuk connection. With two years left after this one on his ridiculous deal, however, acquiring Kovalchuk at any price seems like a future headache; ditto Jeff Carter, who has three years left and is breaking down.

Tyler Toffoli is the most attractive forward on the L.A. roster and has a year left on his deal.

The Wild are also reportedly taking calls on several of their skilled forwards, including Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker. Minnesota has long been interested in bringing Brock Nelson back home, but Nelson has been a key part of Trotz’s system this season and that could be too big a disruption to the Isles’ core, even with Nelson heading towards July 1 free agency.

Even with a few of their possible targets gone, the Islanders have lots of options remaining Monday. Check back for updates as we roll on towards 3 p.m.

Mostly kidding around but how many times have you heard a GM or coach say a player isn't going anywhere and then a day later they're traded. Or a GM say a coach is safe then fire him the next day or 2.

Shortly afterward, he logged onto HockeyBuzz anonymously and demanded to know how the team hasn't acquired Stone yet.

And I'd be fine with Lou not making a move. The team is playing well, the chemistry is there. Why screw with it. If the asking price is too high then to hell with it. Roll with what we've got and see what he can do in the off-season.

Well this time we only got two hours left. If anything is done it will be minor IMO. I think they’re letting this group test the playoff waters and from that result will address needs both at the draft and July 1st.

It could happen but why tell the players then? Your better off saying nothing and keep the trust and respect of your players going forward.

A coach is one guy and he's gone. Can't trade the whole team.
