So any of the good moves made up there weren’t because of Lou it was because of Nonis and Hunter. Ok I understand now. He must have had some smart people in NJ when he was running the Devils then too.

Let’s give Lou and Trotz some time. The Islanders weren’t destroyed in 2 months it took over two decades. L and T deserve just a bit more time to fix what ails this team.

- nyisles7

Are you slow or something today? They are good for three main reasons and those are marner, matthews and nylander and he got 1 that was a cant miss, i guess tavares was sort of because of him right

They are good because of youth but he didnt draft a lot of it. After the cap era the devils were uh ok. Is he better than snow yes, can he make this team better sure but how good remains to be seen

That one I can't really help with. I mean, you could paste a picture of Lee's head on in MS Paint or something but it will look terrible.

you’re fibbing. And that makes me really sad...one way deal for HIM? WHY!!!
- Jethro09

One way or two way? Who cares? It only affects how much money he gets. It has no effect on whether he has to pass through waivers.

Well, they DID make the Cup Finals, something not achieved by the Islanders since 1984.

The cap was in effect. I think it was in 2012 that they made the Finals.

You changed your response while I was responding to it.

I am on record as having said two months ago that Lou was not among my top choices for GM or PoHO. However, I am in agreement with you that he was and is a step up from Garth. He got us Trotz, something Garth would never have done. But so far I have concerns about his other moves....

OK, well you gave me such a serious response, I couldn't tell. Anyway, I think Lou's next step will be to hire the Hanson Brothers to keep the other teams honest.....

I think we all do at this point but theres still a lot of time here. This was on Twitter
Soooo

Beau - Barzal - Eberle
Lee - Kovar - Bailey
Ladd - Komarov - Nelson

With Cizikas, Clutterbuck, Martin, Johnston, Bellows, Ho-Sang, and Filppula all fighting for a 4th line spot???

Am I missing something here? #isles

Who out of those players are you getting a good d man for? Id prefer with this lineup they keep their 1st rounders

Totally agree. This group of forwards is not a Cup-contending group. And they're the strong part of the line-up! The D and goaltending is even more suspect. So there's no point in trading the future for the present.

“That’s always an asset when you have cap space,” Lamoriello said. “We’re not going to spend it recklessly by any means. I like to say we have a five-year plan that changes every day. You make signings to progress, trades as well but you also need intangibles to progress. That’s how you construct the team. I don’t think you’re ever a complete team but I’m satisfied and comfortable where we are now as far as putting a competitive team on the ice.”
From staple who also said hunter and korn are likely to be joining isles the next few days

Well Toronto had the money available to go get him so ..... nah Lou sucks he couldn’t have planned that out.

Fact that they probs can go forward and keep all the core players Lou had nothing to do with That either. He was just a figure head.
