Lou has to understand this cannot be the first move after losing JT. It's a horrible look.

Dear Lou:

You are supposed to be shedding bad contracts, not adding to them.

I don’t hate the Hickey deal and quite honestly does it really matter?
Our franchise player just kicked us in the Nuts and bolted from the team that drafted him. I don’t think any FAS of substance are dying to sign here. I think it’s going to take a couple years of Lou and Trotz changing the culture here and maybe also Belmont near completion or at least construction starting before we are a destination where players want to come.

CDH wasn’t resigning after the way Garth treated him last year imho.

Problem is outside of JT, these are not cream of the crop FA's so if we cannot sign some of these players it's big trouble.

Well on the bright side, the Islanders now have enough cap space to target and extend Panarin and other high end players.

I agree with this, again a #1 pick next year wouldnt ne the worst thing I follow this cat on Twitter hes an anylitics guy
Hickey is closer to a top-4 defenseman than a bottom pairing guy based on the metrics. The value of the contract makes it movable, it’s a low-risk move which should pay off. Got no issues here.

Panarin has a higher ppg than Tavares and a 5year sample size. I would be very happy if they could get him but again not holding my breath

Right. "A couple of years."

On a one or two year deal, maybe you can make a case for this just holding us over until then. Four years? That's not sending such a great message that things are changing...

Said the Hickey fan.

No, compared to losing JT for nothing, this is small potatoes. Weak market for free agents, and you're right, Brooklyn/Uniondale is not a desired destination.........yet.

After JT walking out, I have no desire to see Karlsson or anyone else big walk for nothing. They might as well wait for Belmont and just build up the prospect base.

True, but that’s why you thank the hockey gods for guys like Chiarelli, Bergevin and Benning. Still deals to be had.

That's leadership and being a great captain. Vegas picked up another goalie. Do they not have 10 already? Can Lou swing a deal for Subban?
