I think tavares walking killed them and the arena. They need to build around barzal and keep their high picks and hope by Belmont they are getting better and have a new arena. If lou is still here and Trotz they will have all boxes checked for free agents but at this moment they are slightly less of a tire fire than the sens

Just too much to overcome at this point. Stay away from even trying to bring in big names at this point. Have Trotz implement a solid system and use as many young players as you can.

No worries about them signing or trading for any big names. There isn't a player that will willingly touch this tire fire with a ten foot pole big name or not besides Matt Martin who wasn't allowed to step on nhl ice by his former team.

Sad but true........this team just can never get over the hump, I quit on the lions after years of being a diehard but that's football not hockey. Still it's a never ending kick in the balls being a fan of this team

Sadly this is true. Maybe these signing were the best Lou could do?

Sometimes it feels like the hockey gods are punishing us for the team's early mega-success. After all, how many 7 year old teams in any sport become a dynasty? It's as if Bettman and the NHL big shots figure, you Islander fans got yours back in the 1980s. Now let other teams' fans enjoy success.

This is a factual statement. I realize not hard to understand, but it was said?

Edit: I just switched to vodka so I can handle it.

Nope when you have a losers mentality that's what you bring on yourself. We lost tavares and gave up. That's what happened. I expected something different with new management and here we are. It's not fate, luck or anything else. Blaming the stars not being lined up or fate is a cop out. This is terrible decision making plain and simple.

I realize the negative impact of losing wienerhead, but how does Trotz say yes I want to coach those guys. Lou obviously has full discretion, however, Trotz must be involved in this. I mean he is going to be the one at the helm of the team...

A lot of people are assuming lameriello who gives zero control to anyone is giving control or receiving input from someone else which is a complete contradiction to everything everyone said prior. Not being antagonistic but why suddenly does anyone think this?

I literally fought with fellow posters over this with them saying lameriello has full discretion now his coach has input in what he does?

I was addressing Upstate and referring to the past quarter century, not your myopic fixation on the past few days.

Well, he did convince Trotz to join. RUmor was trotz would be glad to take some time off. so theres that, plus the guy no doubt has credibility with his track record. If you thnk hes sitting back watching, I think that's the wrong take. just my opinon.

I hear you not saying you in particular but this new theory goes against everyone's original theory which since has changed. Have a hard time believing anyone would be seeking out these players but who knows?

You don't think coaches say, look we need to fill certain roles? Lack of center depth, D, scoring wingers and finally got a goalie (arguably not the best choice, but we'll see).

I'm hopefully optimistic theres a reason to this madness. Lou cant be this dumb and sociopathic can he? Troz was paid $4M to coach a credible team. Not lose for hughes as some like to say . Otherwise they could have rehired cappy, and im sure hed gladly accept...
