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.

Go with the group that's fighting the world. Its worked out well so far.

Evaluate our POs and add what we need over the summer.

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.

To try to keep everybody focused on practice and not the deadline. He didn't say nobody was getting moved. Guess we'll see what happens. I'm fine whether they make a move or not. I'm actually leaning more towards don't make a move. Ride the horse that got you here.

At the end of the day people will always either say that they made a bad/the wrong move if they go for it and lose or, if they make no trades or minor ones, some people will say they didn't do enough.

I'd like to see them do something when they have to opportunity to be really in the mix, like they are now. But I won't cry if they don't.

They've far exceeded mine and everyone else's expectations. It's all gravy from this point. Evaluate the rest of the way. See what damage they can do in the playoffs. Add the necessary pieces for long term during the summer. If Lou can land a Stone or someone like that, fine. As long as an extension can get done.

This is the first time in recent memory that the majority of us would be ok with the Isles not making a move at the TDL. A bit strange.

It's such a tough balance. You have to worry about giving up a lot for a UFA and then he walks. This offseason will be such a huge test to see if Lou and Barry can attract top talent. If they cannot, it may come down to waiting for Belmont to get done and they may need to move Dobson or Wilde top prospects.

I don’t think anyone doesn’t want a move. I just think overpaying right now is not the time. I think this group right now can make a little noise.

Well it's tough to argue with their record. I still think they'd be better if they added some scoring help for the PP

This entire year has been beyond strange with the Isles being in 1st. Most thought Isles would be unloading players today.

I think it will depend on how they do in the playoffs. Despite their success the jury is still out on this team.

I agree. As I said earlier, with the talent in the pipes, draft picks, cap space and where they sit in the standings, they don't need to make a move. Especially for a rental.

Having Barry and Lou has to mean something in terms of attracting talent. Regarding the fans, if this team is out in the 1st round, Lou and Barry better find a way to bring in a top player this offseason. I do not care if they need to sign for one or trade for one or steal one.

That's my biggest worry. If they have home ice and get bounced in the first round it will be a kick in the nuts!

With the success they're having and Belmont coming in the near future, that'll create some attraction, I think.

True, but none of us expected them to even be sniffing a wild card spot. So how big of a disappointment would it really be? I get it, they're there and we want to see a deep run.

After everyone and their brother had the Isles as a lottery team. I think making the PO's alone is a statement. Sucks losing in the first round but going in we are playing with house money. Teams not expected to do much can be dangerous in the POs.

Hopefully they make some noise and FAs will take notice even more.

Fingers crossed.

Sure it's lousy if they are out in the 1st round but this team is still not seen a strong Cup contender. My bigger disappointment would be if the Isles strike out in the offseason.

I'd be very disappointed. I also thought they'd be a bubble team, but would probably miss the playoffs.

Fire Trotz he sucks, and hire a real HB Coach.

Agreed. Let’s get a real coach in here with some Stanley cup experience.

Think something is up with #FlaPanthers ... travel coordinator just ran into locker room. May be a trade - or lunch is late.
