I agree John. If a good trade can be made fine otherwise hold tight. Still think Lee should be on the block with JT gone. Cannot see giving Lee a long term big deal.

I have more respect for Kirk Muller right now than I do John Tavares. At least that guy made it clear from the start that he didn't want to be here.

I'd like to shop pretty much everyone right now. I would definitely try and move Lee and Bailey.

I agree Jimmy. Just do not know what value Bailey has, but moving Lee now makes a ton of sense and before his numbers go down without JT.

Filuppula does not bother me as much especially if it's two year, but no reason to give Hickey and Komarov 4 years. I rather Luke Schenn on the 1 year deal he signed with the Ducks.

I wouldn't trade Lee. Guy's a machine...he'll do fine without Tavares. I mean, if someone's willing to pay a king's ransom for him, then I guess so, but, minor rebuild or no, I want to see Lee in front of the other team's net giving some of the best d-men in the league fits next season. And I don't want to see this crap we're signing today in the top-six.

Bailey is coming of a pretty good season and his contract doesn't look too bad. The Isles may be able to fool someone into taking him. If they don't do it this summer when the old Bailey comes back next season we are stuck with him.

It may be because I've been so pissed off all day, but I'm in blow it up mode. The only guy I wouldn't trade is Barzal.

I love Lee's net presence, but he is slow. If they can get a good return then I say trade him before he walks next year.

Not bad signing as we need a third line. I would trade bailey to the highest bidder. Lee as well maybe for s goalie or something

Going to be interesting to see what happens UIF.I can see Lee being Captain if he stays. No idea how the Isles replace JT in the top 6 and how plays goal with Greiss?

No "C" unless he signs an extension this summer. Otherwise trade him.

So in an effort to not seethe in anger over JT, I’ve kept off the boards and internet all day. So who exactly have the isles signed and who have the isles lost?

Lee is a great guy and I'm sure is great in the room, but the skating is a concern and he does not play a well rounded game. If the Isles were able to get JVR, it could have changed things. Lou needs to decide quickly what direction this team is going in.

They should have a decent offense and these guys are defensive players so neutral zone trap?

This makes sense. No idea why Lou went off the rails for Hickey and Komanov?

Isles will need to play a super neutral zone trap at this rate. Has Jacques been hired yet?
