Well you’re just a sucker. That’s ok most islander fans are. I happen to look at a persons tenure and decide how good they are. You and management go on hunches I just disagree. Seems to be working I guess we’ll just do the same thing right? Do the same thing hope for success where you had none that’s the definition of something what is it called again?

Yes I think Thompson took his marching orders from the two Bozos that coached The Islanders.
The system and Structure played was exactly the same so as far as developing prospects at BP I think Thompson was certainly hindered.

I think if Trotz and Lou didn’t like him he would be gone. He passed the test I guess.

Every nhl teams farm team plays the same system so when guys are called up they know where to be and what to do. By that standard thompson had to apply the same rules as doug and jack. Now thats the system but he still needs to develop skill and work on their shortcomings which its fair to say he didnt do so well or the scouts and snow made bad picks. Im going to go out on a limb here and say lou has hired a great staff and wouldnt keep someone around who wasnt good at their job and that he knows way more than any of us. Another possibility is that his son likes thompson and hes keeping him for that reason as its chris's show there

I mentioned a while ago maybe they are keeping Thompson based on Chris's recommendation? I get Isles fans being puzzled about keeping Thompson though. The success has not be there and I thought Thompson would be one of the first people to go.

His signings are and have been questionable since cap era he seems to like old school stuff and clearly isnt heavy into analytics with some signings. Kovar and lehner were the best two he made. His staff hires are off the charts though, trotz and korn are top talents he got a great on ice goalie coach a capologist and trotz brought in his own guy to help on the bench. All thats left is a d coach

Going be interesting to see what Korn can do for Lehner and Greiss. The staff hires have been great. Wonder if Stevens is still in line for D coach? Barry seems to be his own D coach though.

Have to think Hunter would have happened already and probably did not because Chris is being groomed.

Lou track record in signing FA's is probably not good at all. Lou mad his money with the draft and trades. Except for this Martin trade.

Could be I just heard he’s a good egg. He’s good with the kids. I mean he taught his kid Tage and he was a first round pick. I just think with Trotz over seeing the coaching, organization wide, BP will be a different story than in the past.

Just an opinion of another sucker looking for a silver lining.
