kindly if you remember the start of last season bailey was actually not an Tavares line and was producing very nicely. After JT struggled to find chemistry with Eberle he asked for Bailey to put back on his line. Also if you remember in 2014 when Tavares went down to season ending injury, what Isle forward produced extremely well down the stretch and was one of our best forwards. If i remember correctly, we won a bunch of those games.
I dont think Bailey is in same camp as Moulson or PAP when it comes to JT.

Do i expect Bailey to match his stats last year No, but do i think he may be one of the guys that steps up big with tavares gone, yes. We all know he has the skill and the tools. he just lacks the heart.
Its Lee i will be curious to see how he does without JT. if Lee can net 30-35 i would be thrilled.

Bash all you want - Bailey made all star game last year.

- Spartiarti


You had me until the all star game comment.....it mean absolutely nothing. The bottom line is yes Bailey has sick hands and yes he’s def got talent. But, they’ve made a hard hat hockey club and i don’t see him having the jam to fit in. I hope I’m wrong, but Bailey is just super soft and i don’t think that’s what the new regime is looking for. We shall see...

Rose colored glasses - None of us here would be islanders fans if we didnt all wear them.
if you saying you dont, then you probably already looking forward to draft. Not me.
I think we surprise. Coaching goes a long way. If we make wild card spot, let me now how that is any different last 9 years with JT.

Here are Sparti's bold predictions for year.
1) Beau nets 30
2) Nelson has best year as Islander (thats if he not traded) and that will be function of him being in contract year.
3) Newly added and the Hail Mary - Lehner goes from recovering Suicidal/Alcholic drug addict to top 3 in Vezina conversation. (im reaching here but would that be a great NHL storyline

Speak for yourself. My glasses aren't rose-colored. I don't see this team even sniffing the playoffs. But that's ok. I think Lou is trying to shake this organization out of the country club mindset it's had for the last 12 years. I think in a few years they'll get there. I think in a few years there will be bigger name UFA's that will want to sign. IF Lou can turn this thing around. And I think he will. I hope I'm wrong about this season.

You’re absolutely right. Trotz said it yesterday. They’re putting in place a specific brand they want played. If certain guys don’t buy in they’ll weed them out. The country club is over. In a couple of years the isles will be better than they were under Snow at any time in those 12 years.

Yep. Plus the new arena in a few years should help attract UFA's.

Sbisa said he was in touch with president and general manager Lou Lamoriello throughout the offseason. “He was pretty straightforward,” Sbisa said. “He said I’d have a pretty good chance to make our team and help our team not just now but long term.” Coach Barry Trotz said Sbisa’s size and skating could provide an “upgrade…

It's going to be an embarrassing story when Staple reports mid season that Lou was accidentally reading all of the advanced stats charts upside down.

#Isles Group A

Forwards: Lee, Nelson, Bailey, Martin, Cizikas, Clutterbuck, Koivula, Hitchcock, C. Jones, Turcotte, Fritz, Holmstrom, Kosorenkov

Defense: Leddy, Boychuk, Aho, Rathgeb, Vande Sompel, Helgeson, Cornell

Goalies: Lehner, Gillam



Probably doesn't mean much on day 1, but it looks like Lee and Bailey might be with Nelson to start, which I guess means the thinking now is to keep Beau-Barzal-Eberle together rather than mix Lee or Bailey in there.

I think this line will get a chance as Lee and Nelly have played together on Team USA.
If they can produce and play well then having Barzal, Tito and Ebs as your first line, I don't think the top 2 lines will be to bad.

That will leave a poop load of skaters competing for the 3rd line. Included in there will be Kovar, Ladd, JHS etc. as I feel MC2 line will be your 4th line.

Longtime Lou Lamoriello crony Jacques Lemaire here watching #Isles training camp. He's in Isles gear, too.

Also, looks like ex-Hartford (AHL) coach Ken Gernander has joined the organization as well.

Hell yeah Mick!

You should read the rubbish he wrote today. He misses Snow! The best line of his blog today was The Leafs are reversing or undoing everything Lou did. mean while he went in there and changed the culture of the team first thing as he has done here.
I go there for a good laugh and to see the same 4 posters who are Islanders Fans post there along with the Trolls which is typically the majority.

Hell, I rather post here even with that Old Cranky cpp. posting the same old shat daily.

A lot of changes happening with in the organization and looking at the lack of success this organization has had in the past couple decades it a breath of fresh air reading these tweets.
I mean when your team is struggling and you can get Trotz and Lemaire to become involved there is no one( well?) who can say thats a negative.
