Effort is always there kid doesn’t take a shift off. It seems he just needs to focus.

Or...was Dorion willing to take either deal but Stone decided he'd sign the extension with Vegas over the Isles. We really have no idea.
- UIF


I know it sounds nuts when you are dealing with that kind of money but the money he saves signing in Vegas compared to Ottawa is HUGE> not sure of the accuracy but the guy from $th Period Daid Pagnotta said the $9.5mAAV is the equivalent to a $13m deal in Ottawa.

I had this terrible nightmare last night that Lou did nothing at the deadline, either because he felt there was no one better than Moose Knuckle for our top 6, or because the team was so hopeless that no move would help it in the playoffs.

So who'd we pick up yesterday?

- JohnScammo



Or, since the team is in 1ST fuucking place, Lou didn't want to upset the chemistry or mortgage the future for a rental that may or may not have signed an extension. I don't know what the hell you're crying about. No they have not been playing great lately but I think that'll turn around quickly. We don't know what offers were sent out or what the asking price from Lou was. So why don't you just sit back and let the rest of the season play out. Enjoy the fact that our team is doing well and the future looks bright.

Yeah.. but did Lou reject it.. or did Dorion take Brannstorm instead?
- niteislander

I believe I read he rejected it. Who knows if all of this is true but that’s what was reported.

Listening to how absurd all the legitimate insiders sounded pre-deadline when they tried to speak with any kind of authority about the Islanders, I'm not inclined to believe anything they say now about what Lou almost did and why.

No because they were doing the same thing we were. Speculating. Now, we were also talking about what we feel are needs for the team.

The difference is, we're not on the radio bouncing back and forth between what we heard from sources and what we think and blending it all together. I go back to Dreger talking about the Tavares situation on the radio that someone linked to a couple of days ago. All of a sudden, in the middle of a rant about some comments he saw on Twitter that got him upset, he drops new "information" about the Isles' effort to re-sign Tavares and this deal that almost was between Toronto and the Isles, and it all magically aligns perfectly with the rant he's in the middle of.

I think even the "legit" hockey insiders are like 65% entertainment and 35% serious.

Yeah. I just don't think they have a lot more info than we get. Mostly speculation and opinions. Now, do they have more credible sources than you & I? I would think so. I'm sure they do. But they don't have the phones tapped so don't know what's being said either.

I think we're mostly arguing the same thing

I agree it's mostly speculation and opinions. I'd just go a step further and say they sometimes put that speculation out there as if it has the weight of truth behind it because of what they may or may not have heard.

No arguing. Agreeing.

To answer your question... Yes, i would be ok with it. Stone is a legit top 30 forward in NHL that has a great 2 way game. I would have LOVED him on this team.
- niteislander


We are building a team to compete for years and years... Sacraficing Dobson ain’t the way to go. He’s a Pietrangelo type defenseman, in that he’s going to be solid in all areas. Add that to Pulock, Toews and Wilde and you have a formidable top four for the next decade.

It's a risk either way. Lou stood pat last year with the Leafs and they were out in the 1st round. The players now get to show if no moves was the right or wrong thing. I'm fine with not giving up a top prospect for a rental. I just wish more GM were willing to deal and were more flexible.

You re-sign Lee, Nelson and Lehner and you bring in Otto, Ho Sang and Dal Colle. Give the kids a real shot at proving their worth.

I would’nt mind having a second line of Ho Sang-Barzal-Dal Colle....

Mayfield on ice for #Isles optional A.M. skate, so appears Hickey is in for him. Same with Kuhnhackl/Ladd. Lehner likely in net.

This does not leave room for an impact forward with Barzal. I'm fine with MDC on a 3rd line with a better center. If Isles bring back Nelson as 2C, they need to bring in a Panarin for Barzal. Going to real tough for the Isles to get to the next level without another big time offensive player.
