It's strange the thinking behind some of these FA's. You would think top FA's would only want to sign with contending teams if possible? I get it's NY but the Rangers or Isles should not be prime destinations right now. in a few years both teams should be very attractive.

Yeah I wouldn't care where I was going, I would sign with the team I thought had the best chance. Even if it was for a little less money. Only thing that might change that would be if I had family in a certain area, etc.

Have to agree 7. No sense for the Rangers to give up assets this year for Panarin. I'm not sure the Isles should throw big money at Bob. Rather the Isles find out a way to bring Sorokin in next year.
- ses111


I think Sorokin is interesting as a prospect for sure but Bob has played in the NHL and has competed at a high level winning the Vezina. You know what he can do in the NHL. Sorokin will probs be good but you don’t know until he comes over, and that’s if he comes over. Also Bob being Russian I think it will be a help to get Sorokin here and help him adjust if he does.

I love the excuses are done for Nelson. No reason he cannot put up good numbers with the wings he has.
- ses111


I give him credit, he played well last night. I want to see if he keeps it up.

I agree Jimmy. Nelson looked good but he needs to keep it up. Would be a huge help if Nelson can be the answer at 2C. I'm not sure if the Isles have any current options for 2C in the system. Wahlstrom is a wing along with Bellows. Hughes I think will be out for the Isles.

Top NBA players seem to sign with winners for the most part.

Bob seems to be a little flaky though. Wonder if any other good FA goalies will be available and could have interest in the Isles? Isles really need one of these young goalie prospects to work out.

I hear that LeBron James guy is pretty good. That's all I know about the NBA. I always thought basketball was stupid. I don't understand why people would pay insane amounts of money for court side seats.

Maybe Greiss? Bob seems really flaky though. It scares me giving him a big deal.

NBA players have more desire to win.

I do not watch it either and I hate the coverage the Knicks get when they have been lousy for years.

Terms and $ is obviously important however I think The Islanders will be all in on him right or wrong.

Lou does seem to like the big name goalies and vets. If Toews is having trouble getting a shot, no idea how a young goalie will break in next year?

Yeah, I have no idea. Rangers should go all in for him, but who knows if Panarin even wants to come to the Rangers. Weird that he doesn't want to be in Columbus. They don't have a bad team.

I think the Leafs cleared the money for this season to go after Tavares, with obviously knowing they have others to sign. JT was their Guy.

Up to Nylander if he wants to be part of the Team. If they didn’t sign JT then I agree they wouldn’t have to be as tough but they have Marner next year so basically the Cap doing what it supposed to. Going to be interesting to watch Dubas manage this.
Hope they suck and win nothing.

Good start with a loss to their rivals in Ottawa

We’re all hoping for the same thing. Internal problems, drama in the locker room, hell fire raining upon their souls for all etenrnity, etc but realistically they have a great team but if a brother can’t hope what does he got?

Good point. I will say that I went there for work a couple times couldn’t wait to leave. Cool bars some ok places to eat but after that there’s a huge drop off in everything from what albeit little I saw.

Ladd and moondoggle in white jerseys, fritz with ptos and sbiza with seidenberg ,mayfield moved up also 2 55 paired together. Ladd is a 4th liner i guess not moving the top 3 lines around

Edit this is easier
