Can't believe you guys are so down on him. With the Sbisa signing, the championships are just going to start rolling in.

Sbisa, strait, seidenburg

They’re all the same player.

At first I didn't blink, but when I saw it for like the 8th time I started to get confused. It's like all the guys with new numbers took ones that were used previously by Islanders. Gionta has Beau's old number, Beau has Strome's old number, Sbisa has Okposo's old number, Pelech is Hamonic now It's ridiculous.

So in your head you're going to think "Strome form Okposo & Hammer!"

Barzal is the one that made that whole play happen. But bailey will quietly rack up assists this year.

You could be selling cars and somehow add Baileys name into it. Ha

I think bailey will probably finish around 50-55 points which is still perfectly fine by me. What I’d really like to see is pulock on pp1.

The huge point shot forces teams to mark pulock which creates more space down low. If they don’t mark him, keep shooting. Lot of skill on that pp but I think pulock is a better option than leddy

I think they have to limit boychuk's minutes in order to try to keep him health longer, but leddy needs to play. I'd stick him with pelech or toews since it sounds like they're going to keep leddy on the right side.

now when trotz said he needed a lefty to play on the right side it tells me that mayfield isn't likely in the top 6 as that would give them three right handed d. My only worry is that the extra lefty taking his place would be toews (good) or sbisa (omg bad)

- Isles_since_6

They shifted Leddy over to the right side, where he played a lot in CHI, and I'm willing to give that a shot. That gives them Pulock, Leddy, Boychuk down the right side, assuming Leddy plays better there.

you could definetely see the progress on the systems during the games. A few times they ran essentially a Box and 1 where Pulock stayed on Zib and rest played a zone. It's going to be interesting watching what Trotz does this year. He already is playing Chess compared to Checkers .. him vs. or last 2 coaches. The adjustments during games will be very interesting.

Just the fact that we have a coach who understands a 110 MPH+ slap shot is a HUGE deal on the PP makes me smile. We have 2 guys like that (Boychuk). I am Koolaide guy for sure but I like what I am seeing from these games already.

I hate to admit it but i think we’re all in for a longgggg season. The brights spots are that Barzal and Beau are legit real deal players. Other than that.....very few bright spots on opening night.

Definitely more structure......it’s noticeable. I just fear the lack of talent will be exposed. Wait till injuries happen.

Kovar between Kühnhackl and Komarov today. Likely that way for last preseason game tomorrow. If that line somehow sticks, let’s not come up with a nickname for ‘em. Deal?

Watching last nights game now:
1) Pulock needs to be on 1st pp unit where the best players can set him up, wow what a shot
2) Barzal, really kid is unreal
3) Personally I'd take Fritz over Mooseknuckle filpulla and komorov, kid skates hard finishes hits and is at least noticeable
4) Sbisa has mishandled several pucks tonight not sure on him so he will be a top 6 regular
5) nelson killing it at the dot hasn't looked terrible
6) Pelech is out there hasnt done much but good to see he can still deflect pucks into his own net
7) Ross Johnston needs to just go away, love that he fights but hes useless otherwise

Edit Beau is going to score a lot this year

He’s been a monster. It’s just that Capuano, Snow and Weight didn’t think he was good enough to play top 6, and or PP. 🤷🏻‍♂️ He’s basically been this same player for the last three years.
