At least we hope they will. Remember, a lot of people kind of said the same thing when Weight took over.
- Isleshockeyman


I said after that half season he took over that I wanted him and snow fired at the end of the year. Most teams surge after a coaching change, and they still had a number of games where they didn't show up, and blew it when they had their fate in their own hands.

then we gave weight another year.

Well they just graduated Barzal and Beauvillier, so that's kinda the reason why there's not much down the middle. At some point you have to hope kids graduate to the big league and leave you with a hole in your organization. You really only get one shot a year, more or less, to restock and drafting for need is dumb. So you just have to hope they either suck bad enough to get Jack Hughes or can find other prospects later in the draft that fit a need.

i agree you have to draft talent not position...seen some of that at the draft this year and it landed us 2 great prospects...glad other teams made that mistake and not islanders...but if we don't draft the talent we need to trade for it and keep not only nhl stocked but bridgeport stocked as well

By all accounts Greiss is a good dude. Well respected by his team mates from everything I’ve read from Pittsburgh to here. The guy has it he played extremely well for us and he was just as responsible for our last playoff round win as Tavares was. He just needs to get back to form and not be over worked. I bet the team in front of him will give him a better chance this year.

Couldn't get worse, could it? I'm actually shocked he hasn't spent the summer seeking therapy and hiding under the bed with all the shots he faced last year.

No I guess it couldn’t. That defense last year was laughably bad like they were trying to let in goals. Some of the worst garbage I’ve seen in my life.

They would play fairly good for a few games then get absolutely shelled and good for four games then get absolutely shelled and so on. I remember it well.

The old nobody stand between the puck and the goalie trick didn't work so well.

Would not blame Greiss and Halak at all. Still find it funny all the people last year saying the Isles need a goalie and never mentioning the 50 shots a game.

Hahaha

“We’re going to leave the shooting lanes open so the goalies can make “easier saves”.

Wtf?

Sounds like a formula for success.

No question Jimmy and I do think the Isles need an upgrade in goal, but the issues were beyond just the goalies. You cannot just mentioned the goalies and not talk about the lousy coaching and system.

Thanks 7! I'm not familiar with Greco. I thought Korn was a goalie coach?

#Isles also say former goalie coach Fred Brathwaite is no longer with the organization.

Korn still may come over as director. From what I read that was his role in Washington. He doesn't do much on ice instructions. So hopefully he is still coming over
