Don't get me wrong, I won't be the least bit surprised if he, Seidenberg, and Gionta all get deals...but until they do I'm not going to assume they'll be in the lineup.

Don't think He will cut it.

But of course anything is possible.

Who knows. I'm not debating whether or not they'll be Islanders...just not counting my chickens before they hatch. Signing any of those three plugs for more than a single year would be absolutely pointless and, for the defensemen mentioned, literally detrimental. Young guys like Toews, Aho, and MVS should be getting plugged in and used as cheap labor. If it turns out they suck in a few years than there's no harm done. Inserting guys we know suck ass, in Sbisa/Seidenberg, into the lineup long-term is an abhorrent use of cap space and available roster spots.

But it is the islander way I'd like to see Filpulla waived even if they still pay him idc its a year. Reading that trotz wasnt happy with last nights squad and let them know it too. Maybe lou was right and brought guys that will work hard and will sit nelson and ladd to wake them up.

Is there a German in the front office? Why do we have 50% of all the NHL German hockey players on the Isles? Greiss, Kuhnackle, and Seidenberg .. was this a ploy to get grubauer? are we trading for Draisdl? Team moving to Germany? (did I spell any of those names right.. not looking any of them up).

Bellows is still a first round pick. If he keeps putting the puck in the net during preseason games they have to keep him in the line up. I agree that he is an easy send down.. but .. not the first round pick boosts his chances.

I agree on Pelech and Aho being call up... just annoyed at how he played last night.

- niteislander

Draft position doesn't matter. Don't care if he was a first-round pick or went undrafted, he still needs time in the AHL. They aren't going to bench Komarov and that terrible contract for Bellows, who is waiver exempt. Bellows is a solid player that could end up putting up Lee-like numbers (aka more goals than assists) playing in the middle-6 or, hopefully, the top 6.

Frankly, with Wahlstrom in the fold next year I think Bellows is the Isles best trade chip. Those two are redundant and Wahlstrom figures to be a hell of a lot better.

It's not like they are loaded at wing talent wise. Why not keep both of them?

Yep. Like I said, most hits he's gotten in one day. I think it's funny that he wouldn't respond to Vukota. Think he knows he'd get his ass handed to him.

I didn't say that they should trade him, just that he's a very similar type of player to Wahlstrom and that Wahlstrom figures to be a much, much better player.

Trading Bellows as part of a package for a competent defenseman that isn't some recycled Islander trash heap would be a pertinent move.

Last night... -

Seidenburg was terrible and that is a good thing. I don't want him on this team.

Brock Nelson was terrible and this is not going to help his case. They skated right by the guy .. often.

Other guys that were terrible- Kuhnakle, Filipula, MDC, and a few other guys I never heard of before...

Hitchcock was actually pretty good, so was Toews

Mayfield and JHS was neither good nor bad.. just kinda .. meh.

Bailey was his usual maddeningly frustrating to watch. You can see him doing his patented give the puck away at the blue line in the highlights.

Think Lou & Barry are still evaluating. Got a couple weeks until the season starts but you'd think if he was going to make a move beforehand it'll have to be fairly soon. Get him used to the system, etc. IF he's going to make a move.
