The thing with Vegas is their misfits are good or were good at some point. A lot of them had cups under their belt and some experience. Ross Johnston and the likes dont fit that bill. The other thing that team has is speed something we're sorely lacking literally outside Barzal and Leddy. This team doesn't resemble Vegas in any way besides the "misfits" label and if that's all we're going into this season with its identical to what Garth Snowdid every season. I appreciate your hope for something miraculous to happen but there is a zero percent chance this team will even resemble a competitive team as constructed now. Thats reality sorry to rain on your parade there

Mark my words I would be more than happy to be completely wrong and would gladly take Vukota busting my balls about it daily

Beauv, Ho Sang, Toews, Casy C., and Eberle are all very fast skaters. I think Pulock is too.

Ladd, Boychuk, Trotz, and Leddy have all won a cup.

Only thing Vegas has a lot more speed and youth than the Isles. Hopefully everything work out with the Isles. I think Barry will have the team motivated it's just a matter if the Isles will have enough talent.

- niteislander

Casey? Nah
Beau? Yeah forgot about him.
Toews? Haven't really seen enough of him to know and we dont even know of the kid is making the team.
Pulock? Nah
Ho Sang? He's a good skater not really all that fast especially since hes usually skating in circles
Eberle? He isn't killing you with his speed.

If you think we're comparable to Vegas I'll just say you'll see...

Defensemen and goalies are still a concern.

Toss a couple pickled eggs in there and you’ve got the makings for olfactory murder.

For record my statement is that changing to Lou and shaking up org merely gave an easier path for JT to leave bc he has strong relationships with previous folks. Previous folks who mattered to him via his PT post...and his friendships, as you can read... did matter.
Result might have been still him leaving, but only made that path easier.

Rest of your item is silly since I've cited ad naseum Garth Snow mistakes in last two seasons. Just as I have cited questionable Lou moves (adding bottom 6 forwards with poor possession and goal differential and a goaltender with lots of flaws) to a team that is per Lou...supposed to win right away. If its to tank and then win down line... he's right on money.

That's him? If Hickey goes behind the other teams net one time, Lehner might attack him.

It is my most desperate hope, that we shall all bear witness to a Lehner/Queen Lundqvist battle at center ice this year. Let it be to the death, no quarter given and none asked.

Actually they’re pretty good. It’s the side effects that are awful.
