So being a worthless piece of crap as a GM and not having any success isn't enough cause?

Unfortunately no. It has to be something egregious like sexual harassment, stealing or not showing up.

He's a 20 goal scorer. Year in and year out. I know he disappears for stretches but I'm just curious how much of that was on the coaching staff. Maybe with a good coach (no to mention the 1 year tryout) he'll actually perform consistently. It's my delusion, I'll tell it my way

He has better goal output and point production then Bailey for the most part since he has been in the league save for two seasons and that’s playing without Tavares.

Yeah he has a one year deal to prove himself under a new coach with a clean slate but no matter how you slice it he’s a consistent 20 goal scorer that more often than not is playing with absolute scrubs. Not saying he’s great and is an awesome player but I’m not sure what anyone expected he would get after we just signed Komorav to three million per and Bailey to 5.5 per?

I guess kinda stuck right now with no C depth... seems a bit much to me though 3.5 sounds much better guess 750k over pay isn't so bad .... only 1 year and if he doesn't work out time to trade

What he Received is spot on. Not sure why anyone would question it.

Agreed but I do question the length again? How do we sign players like Komorav and Johnston to four year deals and Nelson to one? I guess his trade value may be better at the TDL because he has no term but if we wanted to keep him we’re putting ourselves in a shat position with Lee, Eberle, and now Nelson all needing to be signed. If we think this past offseason was (frank)ed up we haven’t seen anything yet. If Lehner has a decent season forget it especially with these stupid term contracts to crap players who have produced nothing for the last two years.

Barzal - #1 no question
Nelson - fighting for a 2/3 C spot
Filppula - fighting for 3 C spot but capable 2 way Center.
Kova - 1 pt per Game Center in the KHL, .5 per with Islanders would be great. Fighting for 2/3 C spot. Imho 2 C may be a streatch but who knows.
Cizikas - 4th line C
Beau - currently Barzal wing but played center in Jr and has played some up with The Islanders

Decent Group at C and the fact that they have to earn it and play well to keep it is great.

I'm guessing that Nelson wanted a one year deal so he could be an UFA next year.

We'll see how Lee does without JT but if he puts up 35 goals next season I wouldn't be shocked it someone offered him $7 shmil.

Forget Ebs, think about Ladd's contact. The guy had less points than Pulock even though he played 5 more games.

I don’t think Nelson was going to sign more than a 1 year deal Cpt. He’s a UFA after this season and if he has a 25 30 goal 60 point season he’ll get 5.5 or 6 mil imho . It may not be with The Islanders because quite honestly he’s been like the ugly step child as far as consistent line mates and also his past 2 contract negotiations were difficult. That said I don’t know how thrilled he is with The NY Isles, especially the old regime. He has a chance to prove himself. He will probs be traded by the deadline if he doesn’t want to sign an extension or isn’t part of the teams future plans.
I think that Lee, if he and the team does well will sign and he will get a nice pay day. I think he’s also a good candidate to become the Teams Cpt when they indeed put a C on a players Chest. I think they will go with just Assistant Cpt for the majority of this year. Obviously he has to sign a long term deal to get the C.
Eberle, could be traded if D help is needed and someone else can step on to Barzal wing. If the D plays well then the team can probably fit both,Ebs and Lee. Tight but can be done if Lou and Co get creative.
I think if Lehner does well this season he will finally feel like he belongs and found a home making him stay as well. Just my opinion on all of course.

Wahlstrom and Dobson are the best of the bunch imho. JHS if he grows up can play.
Not much there after that though except Bellows.
