I don't think Nelson has much value. I know this has been debated here before, but I just don't see it.

I'm not crazy about him but he can still score goals and a change of scenery can really help him.

Scary thought. But honestly don’t despise him Cpt. Guy gave us a deal last contract and put up with BS promises for the last 8 years. Can’t blame him for checking what’s out there for his last deal. Don’t want him to leave and hate the thought of it but I can’t blame him.


At the end of the day I have said it from the beginning, he will pull a Stamkos and sign with the Isles.

even if he leaves he still got snow canned, lou brought in and trotz

and handcuff the team he supposedly wants to win with in the process. Don't agree and to me it's stupid if this is how it actually went down. We're both speculating but if Tavares is in win now mode which he has been saying for years tonight makes zero sense of he's staying here and if he was a part of that he can go (frank) himself

I said the exact same thing about Strome and I was wrong. Nelson has some value but not a lot.

Is Lou going to use his magical powers to make 2nd round picks turn into 2 top 4 defensemen and a starting goaltender?
- Cptmjl


I can only hope Lou has some moves up his sleeve Cpt. Trotz is going to be a huge difference behind the bench. I'm just not sure deals were there and maybe these kids were too good to pass up? Hard to really tell at this point.

Strome did bring back Eberle. Let's see what Lou can do.

Elliotte Freidman... said Lou was going to use one of the picks and trade the other. But when the two kids were available, he had to take them.

I totally get your thinking. It’s about him now and his 7 or 8 years going forward. Tough to accept as an Isles fan but it’s business plain and simple.

Losing him could be the slap in the face to all the celebrating we have been doing for the last month.

Takes time to develop that skill, cpt. It's been 34 years since the last Cup Finals, and 25 years since we got past the 2nd round. We're accustomed to failure.

and once Grubauer was gone. Nobody else was worth a 1st round pick and I doubt there are a ton of defenseman out there for trade that are worthy of that pick

We have no idea what's going on behind the scenes. For all we know JT already told them what he'll do.

I was hoping they traded one of the picks to get a goalie, but given that Wahlstrom and Dobson were available I'm not surprised they took them.

I understand where you are coming from. We've been kicked in the teeth for years, but Snow's not running the show anymore. Give it some time.

There's only so much you can get for what we got. These picks were expected to go earlier but they lose value for obvious reasons. I'll keep the faith but like I said I'm not ok with watching another horrible (frank)ing season. I've seen enough and I'm done with it. Hopefully we'll see something between now and the start of the season to improve a team with some pretty significant holes but I have my doubts today was the day to trade our best assets for a good return.

I mean no one thought they would be there so , I get that and makes sense. But if the we want to win NOW with JT in the fold making those picks concerns me that JT is totally undecided.

Those choices being there makes the picks that much better.

It will be interesting to see what’s done with the second rounders.
