first off don't insult me like that..i can't stand that guy thats why i came here... i am just not going to jump off a cliff because they signed a guy that can easily be waived or push for a spot and someone else can be waived and it won't hurt either way..so what if he gets waived and someone picks him up...
- theguy

Of course not. This is the land of group think. We all jump off the cliff together.

I'm not jumping off a cliff but I am saying it's a completely stupid pointless move. There's literally nothing positive about it. It makes no sense like every other signing and trade Lameriello has made so far.

i didn't sign the guy..might want to pick up a phone and call Lou....what does it really matter 1 way or 2 way contract ...will he really be picked up off waivers and if so who cares
- theguy


You're defending the signing. I would be thrilled if someone picks him up off waivers. Lou is tying up cap space with trash. Seattle will be better than the Isles.

The thing is then why bother signing him. Makes no sense at all. Whose going to be waived?
- kasperrko



I am not saying it does make sense ...please read what i said...just saying it isn't the end of the world.... i have no clue as to who will be waived but i would think logic would dictate that someone will be waived, traded....something because you can't play 15 forwards...so that would lead me to believe that at least 2 players are gone..maybe 1 rides the box

Imagine a world where the Islanders were better off signing crap for four years instead of maybe taking a chance on some guys that might actually prove to be useful if someone gets hurt. I'm sure once someone gets hurt, plugging a dirty diaper like Ross "the Loss" Johnston into the lineup will really help the Islanders and not actually make them worse than plugging in a rotting corpse.

Meanwhile, Josh Ho Sang will continue to get 4th line minutes in the AHL

This is becoming a real kick in the nuts after what we just experienced for the last 12 years being capped off by tavares leaving to add insult to injury. People can doll it up all they like this is quickly becoming a gong show.

At least it doesn't sound like he has a NTC/NMC like komorov because that makes perfect sense with an expansion draft on the horizon.

The only move so far i like is the Kovar signing today...really hope he can translate his game to the NHL...has one heck of a shot, plays with grit, can carry the puck into the zone and has some skill... could be a complete bust but lot of teams wanted him for some reason..just hopeful it works out

I am not defending it...just saying who really cares in the grand scheme of things if he gets waived and makes 800k or what ever his pay is...and if he gets picked up we are on the hook for half

Because we have a shat ton of players signed to long term deals and small cap hits. That adds up to a lot of cap space. We also have garbage players signed to long term contracts and big cap hits. We're just adding to the crap heap. Not sure why you're not getting this?

It almost seems like Lou, after losing Tavares for less money, has gotten panicky about finding players WILLING to play for the Islanders.

Dont really think there were teams battling for Ross Johnston so we had to quickly sign him to a four year deal to reach the cap floor. This is just as dumb as the Pelech, Mayfield, and Strait deals. Just completely pointless and without reasoning. It's like Snow never left.

Kovar's contract took them over the lower limit by itself

Just have no idea what Lou is thinking. This is not what most Isles fans expected I'm sure. You sign guys for one year deals at this pointy two top not 4. Lou is acting like he forgot there is a Cap. Maybe it's true Lou has had problems since the Cap?

The good news is at least I know I can stop planning my evenings around watching the Islanders. Lou is doing a solid job improving my social life so far, I'll give him that.

It's a lot that does not make sense here. Lou is acting like he is stuck in the past with these moves.

Already saved me $150 for the Center Ice package I don't have to buy now. So there's that.

I dont think so. There weren't any teams 20 years ago making stupid signings like this.
