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.

Agreed. I'm sure there's at least 6 or 7 more fringe NHL'ers out there we can sign to long term contracts.

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

Wouldnt be surprised with todays signing that Nelson is dealt away... i think that 2nd line will do ok...wont be what it was before but could be a solid line..3rd line is scary maybe put HoSang on that line.. and well who knows what 4th line will be.

So we're signing bad players to push and make other bad players play better.

See there are good and bad pushes captain, a good push is when a girl pushes your head to her wussy and accepts your push to your Richard. A bad push is ross the boss to matty marts and cal

Lou said he will be here ine way or another not that it means anything but he at least has higher end talent (above average) and they should let any more get away. Lets see what a real coach can do woth him

i know i know players that play a physical game never get hurt...who cares if we have a replacement that can keep the makeup of the team the same.... As i have said numerous times in the end it doesn't matter he will be waived and sent to bridgeport...my gosh the sky is falling chicken little

Nelson is legitimately now one of the most talented players on the team. Not even a debate.

I'm fine man. You're the one that seems to be overreacting. So now you're saying again Lou is signing players to four year contracts to waive them. It makes just as much sense as it did earlier.

Yup if they could get him to play even 60 games instead of 25 it would be huge

Not so sure on him...i hope like heck i am wrong because i thought he was a decent pick in the draft seemed to have the size better then the 5' 2 players we seemed to be head over heels about...but ever since the year of Strome/Nelson/Lee... he has never seemed to get it going

Ross Johnston pushing for a spot in the top 6 will drive Nelson to be the player we all want.

“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

Lou has a far different definition of reckless than the rest of us apparently.

There's better ways to lose than signing bad players to long term contracts. There's also this thing called the draft lottery.

Let’s give it some time. Look what a train wreck of a Team he inherited.

It took a long time to build the disaster known as The Islanders
