its kind of odd that we are one of the few teams that is yet to make any significant cuts to roster. I suspect a bunch coming after tonights game with Devils.

Nice to see game on tv on FIOS instead of having to tether a online version through my appletv.

No Bailey tonight vs Devils. Bailey had one preseason game thus far and didnt seem like it was good one. Suggests he hurt, he already on team so why bother, or perhaps he could be getting shipped out.

Other thought - why bother with Bernier. he sucks. Cant believe that guy was 15th overall pick by Sharks.

I believe Nelson on the trading block for a dman upgrade. He the most tradeable asset we have and he know question going to test free agency.

The second group on the ice today was made up of mostly guys that were BPT-bound or heading back to whatever amateur league they play in, according to Staple.

Hopefully in the next day or so they'll send Dal Colle away for good

is tonight Bellows last chance to make this team?
I think Ladd not being able to even get through practice might increase the odds of him staying. My guess is might be only tryout that has shown he has make this lineup.
Sislo has another games like he did the other night and who knows.

Its odd, Cizikas and Clutter looked great in game in Nassau and looked slow and tired other night. I mean guys its not even reg season yet.

Bellows may get his 9 games while Ladd heals up, but I'd be pretty surprised if he stuck around long-term.

i think Ladd is done. he is this year Grabovski. I guy is already hurt from practice, what should make us believe he can contribute during the season.

He too old and his body is breaking down. Its not his fault. He is 25+ goal scorer otherwise. I hope im wrong.

Bellows seems like determined kid and boy can he shoot.

I think bellows can go to the ahl this year only? I don’t think he can be sent back to juniors so the 9 games doesn’t apply for him and he may stick around if he keeps shooting the puck 7 times a game

I do think ho sang is going to end up back in the ahl though.

The way things are looking right now they may send him down past the ahl straight to 7’s world class talent league he’ll never come back from that.

It's not that uncommon, especially if you're not in great shape to begin with, to strain something when the coach opens camp with some serious skating drills. Unless you've heard something I haven't, that's all they've said it is.

I don't think Bellows makes the team unless Ladd still can't go, and even then, only until Ladd's ready. I just can't see any of Beau, Ladd, or Lee getting benched to start the season. I do think, though, that if Bellows continues to have a good camp, it'll give Lou some confidence to make a move during the season knowing he has someone who could probably step in.

As of right now i don't see how you put him in the ahl... he should start the season in the nhl...i think him and barzal would make one hell of a top line then either Beau or Ebbs on the other side.... i would rather see Ebbs and put Beau as 2c ... Nelson doesn't deserve to be on roster at this point

Would not mind Bellows and Toews making the team. I’ve already had enough of Nelson. He is still floating out there.

Friedman on #Isles: "I do think that if I was to put money on it now - and I'm not saying I'm going to be right, but if I had to place an early-season wager - I think that's the team that's all-in for Bobrovsky." #CBJ #31ThoughtsThePodcast
