Well something new is that the Islanders are in the top 5 for least goals against. Encouraging.

Not bad since they have played 7 of their first 10 games on the road

I think they should just stand pat for a while. Obviously listen to offers, but let's see if Nelson's still bringing it come mid-December. Let's see if the team gets on a roll and Eberle decides he likes the direction and wants to stay (I think he's gotta recognize he has a good thing going with Barzal, so if the team has some success, why wouldn't he want to stick around?). Let's see who becomes available on the trade market...that might make it a lot easier to decide who to let go, and it'd be nice if we weren't trading away top-six players hoping magical replacements will fall out of the sky.

I don't see any reason to rush things. The biggest factor will be how the team does...it might make more sense to add players than subtract. As long as they don't put themselves in a dumb position where Lee, Eberle, and Nelson all walk out the door at the end of the season for nothing, and I don't think anyone associated with this organization will stand for that this time around.

It hopefully is a very good sign the Isles have held their own with this lousy schedule.

It’s a good sign that they’re not skating around looking like they are high on dope for the most part like they did last season😂. Like we’ve all said numerous times on here would’ve liked to see this team over the years with a real coach. One of many things Snow couldn’t deliver on.

Garth never understood he picks these players. They were his and Garth was letting lousy coaches make him and his players look bad. After Ted Nolan was not a pushover, Garth wanted no part of a real coach.

Certainly a good test. Given the sporadic schedule and all the road games it's hard to know what to make of the Isles. This home at home should be a pretty good indicator.

Oh no, focus on johnny jammas now. has anyone notice when all of Tavares 7 goals were scored this year. All in garbage time. Matthews was scoring the big ones .

Tavares deserves to never win a cup. It will be even more comical that in next few games if Lee, Bailey and Barzal keep up their points they might pass Tavares in Points.

UIF - right on with you summary. We can all take a big breathe. This is first Amazing GM and Coach tandem we have had since Torrey and Arbour.
No player will play out season if his intention is to sign somewhere else. Im confident that Lee will sign a nice long term deal that wont break the bank. And what happens with Eberle and Nelson is just what UIF said, we will see.

But what we wont have is a tavares situation again.

Big game tonight fellas - few more wins and suddenly the isles everyone counting out are right up there in top of the division.

if we get 2 points in next 2 games against Pitt I am fine with it... less than 2 and I am angry. More than 2 and I will be thrilled. (4 points I will be walking around like we won the cup).
