If Griess gets too many starts his play falls off a cliff.

He’s had his struggles for sure. But there’s what? 16 games left in the regular season? I’m confident Greiss can carry the load.

Wonder if there are any goaltenders on the scrap heap the Isles could sign if Lehner is out long-term

edit: Not too many

True, but in fairness our evidence for that is mostly based on seasons when the team's defensive structure was basically summed up as, "Just try to stay on offense all the time."

I think that's when the team in front of him didn't play any kind of defense.

Hopefully he won't see as many shots and can keep his consistency up with a heavier work load.

I mean I don't honestly think that Kari Lehtonen can be any worse than having to watch Chris Gibson suit up for an NHL game

I'm hoping their season is longer than 16 games.

I am sure short term Greiss can handle it. If Lenher has an injury that last longer than 2 weeks I'll be worried.

Well yeah, but that's like picking your next (frank) with the two choices being Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer.

Ah come on Jimmy, you know what I meant.

Greiss can shoulder the load. He's done it before, even during a time when the Islanders were nowhere near as disciplined as they are now (last few games excepted).

What happened to this Smith goalie the Isles signed? Is he not better than Gibson?

I guess it’s a good thing that mdw’s gf blocks out the sun.

I know what you meant. I still believe if Greiss has to start 12 of the next 16 games the Isles will be in trouble.

Agreed. We saw that 2 years ago when Snow would not recall Halak. Cost them the playoffs.

Who was the Goalie that won you a round in the PO's?

He will be fine. He carried the load then He will carry it now with a defense first system Trotz has in place imho.
