I read somewhere that JT told the media yesterday that he never asked Snow not to trade him. He said that Snow came to him at the trade deadline and told him that he wasn't being traded.

Of course JT would say that. He knows that every Isles fan hates him. He's a piece of poop.

To make it worse, those scumbag Leafs fans were right about JT going there. JT was as transparent as limo tint. He knew all along he was going there. I have absolutely zero respect for him. I actually despise him. He's a piece of crap.
- Isleshockeyman


That picture of JT sure made it seem the Leafs were always the plan. Players can do whatever they want in terms of Free Agency, but the decent thing was to tell the Isles it's a good idea to trade me at the deadline. JT did not want to be traded and then leave that team.

I agree with your assessment of JT, but I question that story that JT asked NOT to be traded at the deadline. The story came out of nowhere last week, and now many are accepting it as gospel. Either way, I blame Snow for his lousy assessment of the situation, and not going to JT in February and demanding that he sh1t or get off the pot.

I thought it came out after the deadline from Staple? I think Ledecky and Malkin have to take the most blame as I think they took over the JT situation and Garth was not involved?

Didn't it come from Staple though? I'm not saying that automatically makes it gospel if it was from him, but that'd be different than some random anonymous Twitter rumor guy throwing it out there. If Staple reported it, someone had to have told it to him.

EK is back with Lou making a play for Karlsson/Bobby Ryan/Anderson.

I agree that there came a point where Ledecky and Malkin took over the situation, but I'm not quite sure when that occurred. Ownership should not have to get involved, however, if you have a competent GM.

I agree that Staple is more reliable a source than some random blogger , but he could have heard that from Snow who was trying to salvage his own reputation.

I think L&M stepped in back in July when JT could be signed? L&M were late in making changes and that really hurt and especially with JT.

I agree.
And I'm not accepting it as gospel. Which is why I said "if it's true..."
It's just douchebaggery on JT's part. Idiocy on Snow's part. I did say a long time ago that JT would walk for nothing.

Jeez, why? Just begin the rebuild already. Make Greiss your #1 goalie. That should guarantee enough losses ..... #Lose for Hughes

And in his new blog EK has the Isles on Skinner. Would be madness to add Karlsson without him being signed first. Last thing we need is Karlsson walking after JT left.

I just had no idea the Isles had 1000 prospects and picks to make all these trades.

I would be absolutely shocked if the Isles got Karlsson. And kept him.

This started off on the right foot. Hiring Lou. Firing Snow & Weight. Hiring Trotz. I guess it had nowhere to go but down.

From Staple:

In exchanging texts with a few Islanders players, the reactions ranged from surprise to disbelief. I mentioned to one player that fans were posting videos of burning Tavares jerseys. “Don’t blame them,” was his reply.

Good. I hope there's a quiet anger among this team when the season starts and they start playing with a little bit of fire.

A video tribute would be worth it if there's a deafening boo from the crowd throughout the entire thing. Although, with the way the team's being built so far, it'll be tough for the six fans in attendance to generate that kind of noise level.
