New D pairs at #Isles practice:

Leddy-Pulock
Hickey-Mayfield
Sbisa-Boychuk
Pelech working as an extra.



Sounds like Pelech 'boutta be a healthy scratch.

Unfortunately that means that Luca "Literal Anchor" Sbisa will make his way back into the lineup. I have a sneaking suspicion that, unless he's been atrocious in BPT, we're gonna be seeing Toews in the next few weeks.

#Isles forward lines:

Lee-Nelson-Eberle
Ladd-Barzal-Bailey
Beau-Filppula-Clutterbuck
Johnston-Cizikas-Komarov
Martin-Gionta-Kuhnhackl


Beau s getting saddled with two trashbucket linemates

Yep. It's not taking Trotz long to shuffle the right people forward and backward on D, given what he has to work with. Unless one of these guys has a dramatic turnaround, I think he'll figure out he's got like three seventh d-men at the bottom of the depth chart here, and switching them in and out for each other isn't going to change things all that much.

I'm surprised he's not putting Martin-Cizikas-Clutterbuck back together, considering he's raved about that line. But I think it's all Martin's fault if he can't convincingly grab a spot from Johnston...

Sbisa-Boychuk looks like a terrifying d pair, though, and by that I mean terrifying for us to watch rather than for the opposition.

Hopefully it will not be long before Barry and Lou go to town on this roster.

So happy Ladd and Barzal are playing together again. Like really happy.

Personally I’d rather Trotz put Hickey on Barzal’s LW.

Ladd can shoot.. which is more than I can say for Brock Nelson. Nelson for all his "He has a fabulous wrist shot" nonsense can't hit the broad side of a barn. He was set up 6 times in that last game with golden opportunities.. Need to bury more of those if he is going to be a top 6 guy. I was one of those guys who hoped he would really "click" this year. I have seen signs of it and am still hopeful (just going to the net instead of behind it is a HUGE uptick). He needs to score though when he gets the puck all alone in front of the net.

Or ... we could be seeing another round of Seidenberg.

I hope it's Toews.

I hate the Ladd contract with a passion, but at least he is not afraid to shoot and could still be a decent scorer. Nelson has looked better this year. I'm just not sure he will produce enough for the top 6? i just do not see it working long term with the Islanders.Nelson does not seem to have that drive needed to be a success. Nelson is the typical Garth draft pick.

The Isles player that is about to go off on a major point streak will be Brock Nelson. I sense he is Trotz's focus project. Book it, hit the fantasy wire now hockey fans.

As for Toews - the Soundtigers seemed to be getting coached by Doug Weight.
Dal Colle is leading in points and JHS is a -5 rating. Toews will be first call up when someone on defense is hurt.

I do like that Trotz makes changes immediately.

Meaningless. Cizikas is well-known for having an upbeat personality.

Absolutely terrifying moment during the UConn-Quinnipiac game as 6-1 Brogan Rafferty hit 5-7 Ruslan Iskhakov (NYI 2nd rd pick) in open ice...out cold before he even hit the ice.

Good news: he was moving all extremities and talking as he was stretchered off.

Im worried that Cizikas comes back too soon every time like he and clutterbuck were doing last year. Martin/Cizikas/Clutterbuck was one of best lines on monday vs SJ. Martin/Gionta/Clutter was the worst line against nashville. Gionta skates hard but thats about it. Fritz is better.
