Might be a better option than Filppula to center some bottom-6 line.

One-game possession numbers don’t reveal much and the Islanders were dominant five on five on Wednesday. But the Tom Kuhnhackl-Valtteri Filppula-Leo Komarov line was under 50 percent Corsi/Fenwick in a game the Isles controlled and Filppula managed to lose all eight draws he took on a night the Isles won 34 of 58.

Of those three players, Kuhnhackl has really shown the best in camp and the preseason. Filppula and Komarov are veterans and they certainly understand when to turn their games up, but with such fierce competition in the bottom six, it’s surprising they haven’t flashed more.

Preseason is preseason and it's way too small of a sample size to fairly judge anyone...but the guys they brought in to be, allegedly, "defensive specialists" sure don't look like they know what the (frank) they're doing, so far.

He was terrible last night, go back to the pens
- Upstate_isles


Just nice to see some structure and the players looking like a unit of 5, backing each other up in all zones of the ice, Wingers covering the point for a rushing D and One forward staying high in the zone to cut down on odd man rushes, etc. is a breath of fresh air. Defensive awareness that has been lacking for years again is nice to see. Its a work in progress and they don't have it down 100% however I can see a huge difference from last year.

Finally, I thought the short quick passes in the defensive zone and quick zone exits which were non existent last year are much better in pre season already. Which is a hell of a lot better than the team looking like a Chinese fire drill and trying to do it individually.

Barry Trotz said plan is for Robin Lehner and Thomas Greiss to both see time in #Isles preseason finale tomorrow night at Oshawa vs. #Sabres


Sounds a lot like Lehner is winning the starting job out of camp. Full game last night and Greiss still has to split time with him tomorrow.

He's gonna have to wear ear plugs to keep his scrambled egg brains from leaking out of the sides of his head.

Gonna take a few years. Hopefully Kravtsov can be here next year. I will be patient for about 3 years.

I'm pretty sure we don't need Bootsuckles. Plus Vukota will get mad that you are getting rid of a 4th liner.
