I get it, but who is out there to bring in that is actually going to agree to come here or stay?

Its great to shoot down and piss all over moves that were made but honestly there wasn't much out there as far as Players willing to sign here. Just my opinion.

I was hoping to use one of the 2nd round picks for a goalie that was blocked from starting elsewhere. I know Isles could not make big moves this offseason. No way would I sign Leo for 4 years or Hickey for 4 years. Same for Johnson. I'll be very happy this season if Lou starts to move some guys out and get Bellows and Toews into the lineup.

Hickey deal is cheap and I don't have a problem with it at all. Leo was brought in to help on the God forsaken PK. Lets give L and T some time to mold and build their Team. They inherited a team that was a 12 year intern program for the NHL and Country club. Its going to take more than a month or two to change this shat around.

Might be a long year but You have to be happy We have different leadership to turn this shat show around.

That's all fine, well & good but you have to understand something. We've been through 12 years + of mostly bad signings, poor drafting, crappy coaching and no accountability in the country club. Then the signings that do happen are fringe 3rd and 4th liners. That are now keeping a young player or 2 in the A. We've been beaten over the head with these type players for years. What was expected was better signings.

I've already said in an earlier post that I'm willing to give them the year to at least change the trajectory and mindset of this franchise. I'm not expecting blockbuster trades and 4 lines of all-star talent to be brought in immediately. Or ever. I'm also still thinking that Lou has a move or 2 up his sleeve.

It's a shame that Andy Hilbert and Richard Park were not available.

#Isles send Kovar and Toews to BPT, Ladd to IR retro to 9/16. Lamoriello says Ladd may practice tomorrow.


Something is fishy with the whole Ladd IR thing. They put him on retroactive to two weeks ago so he can come off whenever. I have a feeling that's going to be Lou's way of, eventually, burying that money.

That’s exactly what he’s doing.....trying to bury that horrific conny

Don’t worry players will be held accountable only players playing well will stay as we can see. Sbisa looked real good.

That’d be better than Hickey I suppose. Personally I was hoping it’d be Lehner.

dang not at all how i hoped it would all work out. 3rd and 4th lines will be torn apart, can't roll like this for long. i just hope Kovar can get his stuff together quick maybe pair him with Bellows and Ho-sang down in bridgeport... extremely disapointed that Toews didn't make roster.. no way any of those guys besides Pullock makes the team over him.

So, if my math is correct:

Terrible players from winning teams = good players for the Islanders

I came up with guys that were on winning teams but had no affect on those teams winning

Well this thread has been fun to catch up on today, I dont see this team being great or awful just same old. Obviously Lou and barry need time but the sbisa and toews moves are head scratchers

makes you wonder just how bad the locker room and the level of accountability was with this team when they took over. Lou must have seen the country club and lost his mind.

He did and is changing everything. Not only the on ice product but the whole Organization.
From the ice quality and Barclays renting out the ice to the administration offices being separated from hockey ops.
It goes on and on. He’s putting his stamp on everything.

My crystal ball predicts a really bad season where we have nothing better to do than make up new names for Moonraker.

Gotta tear poop down before you can build a winner. Lou is more than capable of building just that, but the rot goes deep and it’ll probably take a year or two.
