I'm sure part of this is the team struggling to play both solid defense and offense. This team obviously needs an upgrade of offensive talent though.

(frank) put beau back with barzal and bailey and del colle with ladd and filppula. I dont even want to see ladd but we are stuck with him. Toronto may he just what the dr ordered to get things going

Lou might not care but if the Isles are out in the 1st round like the Leafs were last year after Lou also did not make any deadline deals, Lou will get some criticism.

He may go nuts in f.a. so he gets some time but if this team fades it won't be pretty. Also imagine all the leafs fans after all isles fans have chirped them all year

Well its clear to see no moves were needed at the deadline
- Upstate_isles

I can't totally disagree with not making any moves, but it's also kind of tough to see given the position they were in.

Mike Babcock said he’ll split Andersen and Sparks tonight and tomorrow, with Andersen starting tonight vs. Edmonton. Presumably then Sparks will go tomorrow at Islanders


Weak. I wanted to play Andersen.

It's getting to the point where they have to call up Dal Colle or Ho Sang and start sitting guys that make money. Barzal can't be saddled with no-talent trash like Komarov and, to a slightly lesser degree, Ladd. It's a total waste of your most talented offensive player.

This is eerily like ANOTHER top center we had.....

I do think Beau needs to be back with Barzal. You need to put any talent you have with Barzal. Ladd and Leo simply will not cut it. Isles have to live and die with Barzal Beau Bailey Nelson Lee Eberle in the top 6.

It is tough because the Isles needed help and giving up a top prospect for a rental is very risky.

I get why he didn't do it I think they painted themselves into a corner with the no trade and filppula and the komorov deal as well. Too many guys here as is

He’s putting Andersen against the Oilers? Seems a bit harsh.

It would take a rather momentous collapse for that to happen. Considering how Lehner and Greiss have managed to maintain their stellar play for 3/4 of the season, such a collapse seems unlikely.

40 points still available that's a lot of games to be played and they play Columbus 2x

I agree. I think we’re going to be at that point real soon where it makes zero sense not to call one or both of those guys up. I get it we had to make room for Ladd and why have MDC ride the pine when he could be playing in Bridgeport but I will say that 3rd line looked better with him on it maybe some will disagree with that but here we are. If we’re not calling them(which I think we both know we’re not)up I would like to see Eberle, Barzal, and Beau together again move Bailey up with Nelson and lee. Leave Ladd to rot with Komarov and Filppula if he must be in the line up. Expecting Barzal to saddle these crap players and perform to me is stupid at this point. We can’t score and it’s not a new issue doing what we’re doing is not going to solve it imo.

Or kuhnackl for that matter... Funny how we always wanted to see tavares with legitimate talent on his wings and Barzal is playing with kuhnackl, Ladd, and Komarov. 😂

I think theyll make it but them holding onto the division lead seems a lot less likely which pisses me off being they had a seven point lead at one point.

You think they sit Martin after that game? would give them an excuse to bring RJ who would have zero reservations about sending PJ into the glass.
