Not really a fan of Johnston but I like what Trotz is dishing out here.

Cal Clutterbuck, who has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury, participating in #Isles morning skate.


Clutterbuck skating. He makes the 4th line better. Hope he can go tonight.

We win today we’re still not in first because we lost that ROW to the (frank)ing Senators earlier in the week🤮

Love that he sits Ladd and is $5.5M salary, and hickey along with his $2.5M. Although, I hate that we're wasting $8M on those two to sit. Just wish Ladd would play like he did against the Leafs every night. He's such a waste when he just floats around the ice.

I think with Ladd it's more health related and Bailey it's just being lazy. Ladd played a physical style over the years and has taken it's toll.

I understand why Trotz isn’t his biggest fan BUT even though it’s not the popular line of thinking on this thread lately I will say Ho Sang brings an element this team has been lacking a lot of lately. I think he would add much more to the third line than kuhnackl or Johnston imo. I would like to see him get another shot at the very least to drive the competition a bit more.

I do think the Isles could use JHS speed. I do not have an issue if the Isles wanted to try him again.

There are 3 words written on the wall in the Islanders locker room, Accountability, commitment and Structure. Barry enforces them all.

I'd like to see him get another shot in a game or two. His speed would help.

Me too. Although Trotz doesn't seem to think so. And if he wants to play MDC over him while at the same time benching Ladd and playing Toews over Hickey, than I can take this as tradeoff. Someone posted an article about being accountable and creating competition amongst the team. I love that about his coaching style.

Yea it's nice to see guys not playing just because of their contract (ladd) and them trying g to ice the best squad. I think del colle should stay in and also benching ladd may make him waive his no trade

I don't disagree on MDC although I'm no convinced he's a top 6. I do like how he's developing, but would prefer more scoring from our top lines. As others have mentioned, I'd put Ebs back with Beau and Barzel. They've had success in the past and he could use a boost. Let the other lines play defense.

MDC is hardly a Selke type player. Eberle plays great with those two offensively. Just my opinion.

I would like to see that also mentioned it a few times just to hopefully get Eberle going if anything. He’s worthless at this point not doing crap for us for too long. Really like to see Leddy off PP 1 also. I’ll shoot Trotz an email.

Maybe even Barzel/Eberle/MDC if we need a defensive minded player on that line? Agree with Eberle needing to get his game going. Really need his scoring touch. The PP has been a mystery all year. Who would you swap for Leddy? Go with Toews and Pulock?
