for someone so smart and connected you'd just assume he had a real job as a writer he bashed staple for god sake and staple is always the guy called in to do interviews anytime it involves the isles. Thats not to say staple is the end all but hes certainly more connected than gallof
- Upstate_isles

I know you're being sarcastic but he's the only person on the planet that thinks he's smart and we all know he's not connected in anyway. He's just an insecure boy. I dislike staple but he had more of an "in" then anyone.

His rants last night were absurd. He came in to clean up the Isles board? I don't think I've ever seen that level of arrogance. I'm sure Ek brought him in to chase viewers away.

Not to mention his gratuitous use of the word "retard". I'm not really one to be offended easily, but it seems a kind of unprofessional to repeatedly refer to people/things as retards/retarded all the time and expect people to like you and/or care about what you have to say.

So we know the draft is Friday and we assume JT needs to be signed by then so they can draft properly and also they need a coach. We are so close to these things playing out im just watching my twitter feed. Cant remember being this excited about the isles in forever

I'm not so convinced that Lou is going to name a coach by Friday. I'm sure he'd prefer to have one, but if Trotz told him that he needs a little time to mull it over...I'd much rather give him his space than an ultimatum.

I think he will give him time but you would also think the new coach would want to be at the draft but I suppose its not necessary either. Really seems more important to keep tavares and let him have all the facts in front of him.

I'm not offended by much and not politically correct in any way as we all know but I'm not a fan of that word

I don't care about the use of the word "retard". I do question the strategy of insulting your "readers". It would be one thing if he had a proven track record to back up that level of arrogance, but he's wrong all the time. Yet he still thinks he's the sole voice of reason.

Where does Barry Trotz go now that he's out in Washington? -- @hstempin92

The New York Islanders are the only team other than the Washington Capitals with a coaching opening, which makes them the obvious candidate to land Trotz. But it's not clear if that's what he wants or if he's what the Islanders want. Ideally, New York will have its coach in place by this weekend, or at the latest early next week, so he can be a part of discussions with pending free agents. At the top of that list is center John Tavares, whom the Islanders obviously would love to re-sign before he can become an unrestricted free agent July 1. It'd be even better for New York if it can re-sign Tavares before hiring a coach because he would be a huge selling point.

But that's the chicken or the egg scenario; if I'm Tavares, I want to know who my coach is going to be before I sign. Trotz knows Tavares and has worked with him; they were together with Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey 2016, when Trotz was an assistant.

There are wild cards at play here too, including the potential for Trotz to take some time off to rest and reset. It wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't have an NHL job at the start of next season but instead waits for a potential midseason opening or takes the entire season off and comes back fresh for 2019-20.

So if the isles take Dj Smith are we happy about it? Players love the guy and hes supposed to have potential or are do you prefer a proven guy?
