Yeah we’ve seen them limp in before and then turn it on once in. Much rather they get their act together now and go in strong.😂

Obviously getting on a bit of a win streak going into the POs would be the best case, of course.

Really love for them to retake the division and rub it in everyone’s faces.

Monday’s a huge game. Perfect game to turn this shat around.

Yep and I still stand by all of the things I said on that page.

The Komarov contract is an absolute abortion and Johnston (frank)ing blows signed for four years. With that said I’ll gladly say I was wrong about their performance for three months though I did cite Trotz as being a “wild card” in the teams overall success numerous times meaning the team could ultimately supersede expectations even with this roster. Overall though I thought this team through out the season would be what we are seeing now and did not see that earlier success happening.
They surprised for a few months but seemingly have regressed. Hopefully it’s a temporary set back which I’ve stated before but this team seems to have the same issues as Islander teams past. They fold under pressure. Let’s see if they can dig themselves out of it with a good coach.
Also I don’t agree with this whole well we’re doing better than expected so whatever mantra. The team got here them not maintaining that level of play is more alarming imo and it’s a defeatist approach within the team imo. Just as much as it’s a defeatist attitude by some fans. They raised the expectation level they should rise to the occasion “evaluation season” or not.

Komarov's contract sucks. Johnston's contract is stupid but harmless.

I agree with this.

Yet I will not lose my poop with them after a stretch of poopty play. All teams (excluding the elite) go through periods of poop play. It is as unexplainable as it frustrating, yet it is so. I’m actually quite impressed that the Islanders have gone as long as they have before hitting this skid.

Agree Schwein every team goes through it.

The Bolts have been pretty clean this year so I’m hoping they go through it when the POs hit.

I don't disagree, but its frustrating to watch them falter after doing so well. They were playing a solid defense first strategy and it seems to have completely broken down.

It is stupid and yeah they can just bury him but harmless? It isn’t harmless when he’s still in the line up.😂

Agreed. It’s always hard to imagine your team pulling out of it when you’re watching it because it just looks so bad. I’m hoping they right the ship timing couldn’t be worse. Well if they start kicking arse tomorrow it would be great timing.

It's much more frustrating seeing the team struggling now after playing well most of the year.

Fair or not, Lou is really going to hear the talk that he has lost his touch if the Isles miss the playoffs. I'm not worried about the Leafs or other fans. I stay away from the other threads. I would be much more upset if the Isles miss the playoffs.

Yup, it seems about right for a guy with no record of disciplinary issues.

What was Boychuk trying to do, go for the puck or hit Voracek? To me it looks like he was gonna run him from behind, in which case I would have done the same thing Voracek did. I had turned the game off by this point.

I am somewhat amazed that Voracek got 2 games for that hit. Am I missing something?
