Not sure I didn’t read your post.

Oh god, your senility starting to manifest. You're talking to yourself now. When your wife gets home from daycare I am going to need to talk to her about finding a home for you.

I have a crawlspace. We can just bury him there with the rest of the bodies

We are four games into the season, relax. Guys will get their shot.

Toews is not a "high-level" prospect and Bellows has played four pro games. This team is not going anywhere with a goaltending duo of Greiss/Lehner, this is a total evaluation year for nearly the entire roster.

I don't disagree that Toews should be here, but we have plenty of time. Boychuk will go through his annual six week IR stint and he'll get a look.

I disagree with this statement... We'll revisit this at a later date.

I'm pretty sure the old peoples homes have access to the internet though. I thought the whole reason for this was to just get rid of him

These should have been the parings to start the season. You have Toews, Wotherspoon, Aho. Made no sense at all to sign Sbisa.

I bring this up every year but the NHL Scheduling is once again absurd. We have Toronto already played 7 games. We have Nashville already played 6 while the NYI have only 4 games under their belt. Every year we seem to have 2 or 3 less games than a ton of teams right out of the gate. Then the last month of the season we usually have to make up a ton of games. We have 16 games in March... 16. Most teams have 14.

It was not even a fair fight. The people who were against signing Sbisa clearly won.

I think Colin Campbell makes the Isles schedule.

I'm not saying I'd do this, but this is a lot less lopsided than a lot of people think. I would strongly consider it. Yes this is an unpopular opinion, but it's not crazy when you take into account all the factors, not just goal scoring.

Well now I’m torn. Half of me wants to agree with you, the other half wants to tell you to shut your whore mouth.

Given Nuge's age, contract status ($6M per for this year + 2 more..for anyone too lazy to look it up), the Islanders desperate need for a functional 2nd line center, and the fact that the Islanders have two prospects (Wahlstrom/Bellows) that figure to be solid goal-scorers...I think it makes a lot of sense. It would carry some risk but it would definitely be a calculated risk.

Obviously seeing how Lee finishes this season without having Tavares would be an important benchmark, but he'll be 29 when his next deal kicks in. It's gonna be tough to commit another 6-8 years to him at a high dollar amount at that age. Even more so if he comes in way under where his production has been for the last two seasons.

Like a rookie. Skates well but is often in over his head. I’d prefer if they sent him down and brought back Bear.

Agree with all of this.

As much as I love the guy, I’d rather Lee stay an Islander. He was one of the reasons I started following this franchise and it wouldn’t be the same without him, even if he were to become an Oiler.

You guys should still trade for Nuge though. Something around Leddy perhaps?
