I think we will have another Center by October. If you asked me who I would beg Lou to trade for it would be Barkov... but that isn't going to happen. I also believe that Ho Sang and Bellows are ready and going to be big this year with a real coach. I think Brock will have a good year too with a real coach. (Bailey I believe will be benched all year b/c of a real coach).

Ladd is not going to be allowed to play like sht with Trotz. He will return to form too.

I'm not a big fan of Nelson at all, but I'm curious to see what he can do with Barry. I would not trade Nelson for nothing and it might make sense to hold onto him for now and trade him at the deadline if needed. Ladd might be useful on the 3rd line. Isles are stuck with him so hopefully he shows something. Ho Sang I do not mind getting a shot with Barry and he could be useful on the 3rd line. Doug is gone so if Ho Sang cannot make it with a real coach it's all on him. I'm very interested to seeing Lou's next moves. Hopefully they are better than yesterday.

good.. My son asked me if he could burn his jerseys. I said.. Yes to the Autographed black one JT gave you .. the rest we will take the name off and put Goring or hopefully one of these kids takes 91 for spite.

Bailey has to be the most shocked JT left as he probably thought it was in the bag of JT returning after Bailey signed. I would move Bailey as well. Just do not know the interest from other teams?

Afternoon gentlemen and Kasper.

Yesterday was a disgraceful and undeserved blow to an already mistreated fanbase. You all have my condolences, and I hope Snow and JT rot in hockey hell.

So. I guess the biggest need now is a center. Any rumours as to who is available?

Afternoon schwein and Thank You! All quite in terms of rumors. I really want to see what goalie Lou brings in and if we can get another top 4 dman. NHL free agency as usual seems to be dying before it even starts. What a surprise.

And to answer your question, no word on anything, which isn't surprising. I'm at peace if they don't bring in another center if the alternative is setting the system on fire to make it happen. I think most of us accept it'll probably take some time to build toward a push again. I mean, if they make a couple of moves and manage to ice a team that clicks, great. But at this point it's probably all about building for the future.

Sadly it was an awfully thin FA class to begin with. Only FA left that make sense for the Islanders are Lehner and de Haan.

No worries Kasper. And in consideration of these difficult times, I promise not to tell you to calm your tits for the remainder of the calendar year.

Thanks my tits are calm for now but I been reading all these bloggers on here and they are all making fun of us. It’s good to see everything back to normal again

Very frustrating that every year we hear this is the year of trades and we get very little. I'm just not sure about Lehner. I'm a little surprised he is still available though. Would love to see the Isles trade for a young goalie that is blocked elsewhere. I mentioned Subban from Vegas the other day. No idea if he is available?

There must be a hockey trade to made somewhere. I’m confident Lou is looking into it.

But yes I agree, best not to sell futures.

Lehner might not be ideal, but he certainly appears to be the best of what remains. Also not sure about Subban. I’m frankly at a loss trying to understand Vegas’s motives.

I think it might be the smartest move at this point. Very hard for quick fixes with such lousy players available in FA and with the two building nonsense. Best thing may be to play it smart and find out about the young talent on the team already and give time for the prospects to develop.

Does Vegas not have like 4 goalies now? Subban is not starting so I would think he could be had?

Maybe the best thing is to bring in a young goalie. Trade for Hank, Price, or Crawford is not happening. With a proven coach, maybe you find out about players like Ho Sang, Toews, Mayfield, and Pelech and find out if you can get more out of Nelson. Just does not seem flashy trades are in the cards.
