Remembering what was said about the Isles and playing against them last year by one Capitals player( don’t remember who) I found this quote about The Isles by Sharks coach DeBoer interesting.



"They played desperate," Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. "They blocked a lot of shots. They were heavy, they were hard. They played a good hockey game. That's a one-goal game basically going into the third period on the road, so you've got to give them some credit. They played hard defensively. They didn't give you a whole lot. They found a way to get the first power-play goal and we didn't

Flip side: Min. is the oldest and one of the fattest.

I don't care if they're all pounding tubs of butter slathered in bacon fat down their gullets if they keep playing the way they are and improving.

I'm pretty sure Cappy's use of the phrase "heavy game" meant the team looked like they were skating around with anchors tied to them.

Cappy always wanted them to go out there and go "BAM! BAM!" but it took me awhile to understand why he phrased it that way, then I remembered about his best friend's kid

File this under "Entirely Unexpected":



Probably doesn't change the fact that it's highly likely that he'll never be a useful NHL'er, but kids making a go at it...gotta give him credit for that.

MVS off to a nice start, too. I think he's got potential.

Barry will make a player out of him.


Isles seem to have more than a few good D prospects.

Yeah too bad they'll all be blocked by idiots that they just had to sign to long-term deals like Mayfield and Pelech.

- They have four guys signed for 4 or more years (Boychuk/Leddy/Hickey/Mayfield)
- Pelech signed for 3 more years

That's 5 out of 6 spots locked up for the next 3 years at a minimum. They will eventually need to either a) find a way to dump Pelech and/or Mayfield b) trade a couple of the prospects for someone who can play well now c) pray that Boychuk retires before his contract runs out.

The cap management on this team is going to be their biggest hurdle to clear. They have so much money, overall (not just on D) tied up in literal crap.

This was the issue with signing guys like Pelech, Mayfield, and Hickey. You have Wotherspoon, Aha, MVS and now Dobson and Wilde. Hope Lou and Barry can figure it out.
