Why are we acting like it’s the end of the world and the sky is falling. This team didn’t know what defense was last year. I am not saying these signing are great but they are usable pieces. They are third liners who can play defense. We needed defensive forwards. If Lou can get Bobby Ryan Anderson and Karlsson and not give up the farm then so be it. We will have a better defense already a better goalie no matter how you spin it. And a decent scoring forward to go along with the other guys. With Trotz a real nhl coach he will get the most out of his guys. I am pissed jt left but this team might surprise you and not be as bad as everyone thinks. They are not going to just stop and tank

EK is back with Lou making a play for Karlsson/Bobby Ryan/Anderson.
- ses111

Shooting for Karrlson would be moronic because there is no (frank)ing way that guy is resigning with us especially after what Lou did yesterday. He definitely did not paint a picture of a team on the rise with his first day of free agency. Even if we had tavares we are actually worse than we were last season with the (frank)ing clowns he signed yesterday. It's like we have two 4th lines that are paid like 2nd lines and four 6/7 defenseman signed to four or more years

Lou (frank)ed us yesterday not sure if people really realize how bad those signings were?

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.

Seems JT had everyone fooled. Good thing the country club should be truly dead.

Fippula literally made every player he played with worse and we signed a barely bottom 6 forward to a four year 12 million ar contract with a full NMC and NTC. Along with a 6/7 defenseman who we already knew sucked to a 4 yr 10 million dollar contract. You're out to lunch if you think there's any positive in that.

Karlsson does not make a lot of sense unless Lou can manage a top goalie and that's not Anderson. Unless Lou can move Cal and some others, I do not understand yesterday's signings.

Listen captain I u derstand what you are saying but again it’s not as bad as it looks. Jt screwed us I get it but you need to get over it he has not coming back and personally it’s like a load off our shoulders. You can’t rebuild a team over night so let’s just wait and see what happens. Again I don’t think the islanders are any worse to be honest just status quo.

Lou signed 2 bottom 6 forwards. We already have a dearth of them. Why do we need more? We have to have the most expensive 4th line in hockey.

I'm fine with de Haan leaving either way. No sense bringing back de Haan and Hickey and the only change on D is maybe Toews?

Well, if you're just going to bring logic and facts into this, then we're not going to be able to have any sort of discussion.

I'm sure losing a lot will give him some nostalgic memories, but something tells me that he isn't going to care.

That's kind of an over simplification. I can't speak for others but I'm pissed at JT for stringing the Isles along for a year then screwing them by waiting for UFA status. Don't get me wrong, this is an organizational thing as well. If it wasn't so poorly run, he would have been traded a long time ago and we would have gotten some assets for him.

Timeout...regardless of anything else that happened yesterday, Komarov at four years and $3m/yr is a bad signing. It's made worse by already being locked in for years on a very expensive fourth line with what Cizikas and Clutterbuck are making. None of that has anything to do with Tavares...he could have re-signed here for $5m/yr and the Komarov signing would still be a bad way to spend that money for that term. He's over 30 and in decline, so you're already betting $3m that he'll be able to overcome that, and you're betting on it for four years.
