Idk if anyone said it but clutterbuck crushed 3 guys tonight one leading to a goal, he looked good tonight over all. Team is strong and hits so maybe they have an identity

Any thoughts on whether this is a positive or a negative or no big deal?

MSG will no longer be directly involved in the Isles' Belmont project. MSG said today it is selling its stake in the Oak View Group — the arena development company that's partners with Isles & Wilpons at Belmont Park — to entertainment executive Irving Azoff.

From what I read the guy buying MSG’s stake is a big shot who books a lot of big events so hopefully that’s a positive

In that case it can't make the folks at Barclays very happy. Good.

Barzal has to be careful of these types of plays, especially against a guy like Burns. Luckily he didn't connect.

All it will take is one time when he doesn't duck fast enough or low enough and gets his head smashed into the boards.

He is indeed.

Haven't been able to catch a full game yet, just bits and pieces. Great to hear they're playing with a system and structure. Can't wait to watch a full game Saturday. I've been saying it for years, I'd love to see how this team did with a real coach. I guess we're seeing it now. Just hope they keep this going and keep improving.
Not sure who said it, but you're correct about Snow looking stupider with every win they get. Even the loss to Nashville they were in that game.

Sadly, it's going to happen at some point. He's gonna get caught. Whether it's not as you said, ducking low enough or soon enough. Or he doesn't turn his head around in time in the neutral zone and gets clocked. Opponents are definitely going to key on him constantly and you'll have goons like Wilson take a cheap shot to get him out of the game.

Well that may be true but it also takes one game vs to. Wilson or gudas or others for that so you dont change his style or instincts

The good news is they don't play till Saturday so they have 3 days to work on their systems and see what they've done right and wrong then they have another 3 days before the West Coast games so hopefully they can really iron out the kinks

Agreed.
Lots of film and ice time. What little I've seen of the games, it certainly looks like they have a system in place and the guys are buying in. Shutting out the Sharks must be a HUGE confidence boost for this team. If there were any guys that were hedging on buying full-in on Trotzs' system, that would most certainly make them believers. Playing as a unit and with structure is so much nicer to see than what we had before. 5 guys just skating wherever the hell they wanted. If they even felt like skating. 3 of them crashing into their own goalie and the other 2 outside the zone just waiting to transition.

I think they have bought in, barzal is making simpler plays and playing d nelson looks better in a small sample, best 4th line looks good even other 4th line

Team is really buying in to the new system. Very few high % opportunities for a REally really good Sharks team. Only saw 1 odd man rush (Pelech bad pinch), and only 1 guy left alone in front for a shot.. (again Pelech). I know you don't like to give up that many shots but if they are all coming from the perimeter and our guys are not letting secondary scoring chances I like it a lot...

Energy line was great, First 2 lines were solid, 4th line was terrible. The fact that Butch kept talking about how good they are defensively was comical. Yeah they are great at it b/c they can not get it out of their zone. only line that had extended time in d-zone..every shift.

I thought Mayfield was playing great before the goal. He is a much better option than Sbisa at this point.

Get Leddy off the first PP unit and put Pulock in it.

I want Toews on this team.

Thankfully no one has to worry about Wilson for a while - that POS.

I wasn't implying that Barzal should change - I'm not sure there is much else he can do to protect himself. It's only be three games but clearly teams are trying to lay big hits on him. It's only a matter of time before someone connects. After that we can only hope at least one Islander beats the every lovin' shat out of the guy that threw the hit.
