Its weird how sometimes a big emotional win(Toronto) can then be followed by a stretch of poop.

Well it was prefaced by poop also. They haven’t been playing that well for a stretch.

There was a pretty detailed blog on LHH showing all of the underlying numbers(individual and team)with both of them in the line up as opposed to Kuhnackl/Johnston. That’s without even factoring in that most importantly we were winning. There comes a time when being stubborn is being stupid.

I would like to believe they’ll just work themselves out of it but this has been going on for a while and I think change will at the very least drive competition and in the end help us. MDC was certainly not a detriment to this teams success and I can’t say that about Johnston or kuhnackl who just aren’t good hockey players. Need to do something before this team drops like a stone. If it were just a few games I could see leaving it the way it is but that’s not the case.

The offense has been an issue pretty much all year. Cannot blame any illness for the offense.

I know you’ll sacrifice some offense to facilitate the defensive game that’s usually the trade off. Problem is it’s been anemic and is losing us some points. Hoping it’s just a bad stretch that’ll remedy itself but I would like to think that Trotz will change it up relatively soon if it continues with the current trend...

Hopefully Cpt. Some type of adjustments are needed. Outside of the Leafs, this Isles team does not scare anyone offensively.

Funniest part of all this garbage is if he had of signed in San Jose he would have been booed relentlessly by Toronto fans for not coming home.

The bottom line is he took the most Money. no one talks about that b/c it doesn't match the narrative of Pajama boy going home. Toronto gave him most of his contract in signing bonus. almost 71 mill that he only has to pay 15% tax on...

But because so many of Tavares’ road games will be in the US, with careful planning, Tavares avoid Ontario’s combined federal/provincial 53.53% tax rate by remaining a US resident.


"Article XVI of the US-Canada tax treaty states that signing bonuses paid to a resident of the US by a Canadian team are taxed at 15% in Canada, and vice versa for US teams paying bonuses to Canadian residents.

Having his signing bonus taxed at the low rate of 15% in Canada ensures that Tavares would receive a full foreign tax credit on his US return for all taxes paid in Canada on both is signing bonus and his salary each season. If he plans properly, he could save over $11.7 million over the life of his contract."

US should revoke his citizenship and Eff up his whole plan. lol....

I agree. They took a 1-0 lead into the third and hit the iron 3 times. That game could have easily gone either way. Philly, they must have all been sick. I know I was after watching that crap.

I might throw a live snake on the ice April 1st.. like a Boa or something... just to watch the Canadian Media lose their shot over it.

edit: during warm ups of course... no penalties.

I'd like to dedicate this post to Cpt:

Ilya Sorokin is 3-0-0 for CSKA in their first-round series against Vityaz. Sorokin recorded a 10-save shutout in the series opener on Feb. 26. The Islanders' 2014 third-round pick (78th overall) has a 1.00 GAA and a .942 SV% in the series.
