Friend had a small white shark rip a sea bass in half at the boat a few days ago shot the video. Those sharks are always in the surf sand bars, brown sharks occasional dusky. She must have stepped on it they never bother anyone

I know the roster looks like a bucket of piss overall, but I think it’s obvious what Lou is doing: he’s cleansing this organization of any remnants of the old regime and way of thinking and bringing people in that are going to change the culture and make this team disciplined, tough to play against and command respect. I read a piece by Ken Daneyko and he talked about how this was how Lou turned Jersey around.

The roster deficiencies will probably keep this team out of the playoffs this season, but I have a feeling we’re going to see drastic overall improvement from the country club days of pond hockey and no responsibility. It may take a couple of seasons to get better players, and that is probably why the isles only signed guys to short term deals or real low money deals (sans Komarov).

Resigning hickey for another four years is not cleansing all that much imo. Other than that yeah I agree.

yes they need the prospects to develop and thats a few years so right about belmont time. they give these guys short deals to get there while the youngsters improve and once theres a new arena they will be getting good and attract free agents

Groom the prospects and develop them properly. Play systematic defense. If they can make a move to get another 3-4 D-man (let's face it, we're not getting a 1-2 to come here right now) and Lehner & Greiss can be a little better than average, then there can be some success there. Not saying they're cup contenders of course. Maybe next off-season they have another good draft and maybe land 1 or 2 good UFA's then build on that. As long as the country club mentality disappears, then the losing culture may disappear as well. All the cards have to be played right though. Got the arena, got Barzal, got cap space. Hopefully shed 1 or 2 of the bad contracts and future looks bright. Just one mans opinion though.

Judging by the 3 feet of water and the pictures I have seen of the wounds (guy who I sit next to has 2 kids that are lifeguards there).. I would bet it was a Bull shark.

I still think they have the talent/prospects on the team and in the system. Many teams would love to have our talent pool (Ho Sang, Toews, Bellows, Wahlstrom, Dobson, Aho, etc.) Add the young talent on this team already in Barzal, Beauv, Pulock, etc. Even Lee, Leddy and Eberle are only 28, 27, and 28. This will be the first time these kids have a real top notch coaching staff. They will be fine.. not at first but soon after once the coaching starts to click with the players.

This was the tooth that they pulled out of the girl's leg that was bitten at Atlantique



That's a bull shark. I am no marine biologist, but I don't think that tooth came from a bull shark. I also grew up doing a ton of surfing on Fire Island, a lot at Atlantique and neighboring beaches, and have never heard of a bull shark being in the waters here. Not saying it's impossible, but it's pretty unlikely those kids got bit by a bull shark.

Hey, long time listener occasional caller.

I wonder what it would take to get Korpisalo from the BJs. I think he would be a huge upgrade over greiss and would give Lehrner some serious competition. Could be a 1A 1B situation. Given that the BJs top goalie prospect just won goalie of the year in the swiss league and the fact that korpi is a RFA and bob is an UFA at the end of the year i could see them trying to move the less proven goalie out of the 2. Thanks for listening, i'll hang up and let you answer.

With the uncertainty about whether or not the Jacket's will sign Bobrovsky to an extension I don't see them moving any goaltenders anytime soon.

After how the JT situation played out, i dont see teams letting top ufas get to that point. i would imagine they will either extend him soon or deal him.

Maybe, but until then I don't see them moving a goaltender.
