Lamoriello on adding a goalie this weekend: “I don’t think we need to come away these two days with anything, but are we looking for a goalie? Absolutely. I think we have quite a bit of time to get that done.”

Lamoriello on Tavares: “Right now, until something’s done, it’s not done. There’s no question that he’s a very important part of this organization. We want him to be here. We’ll just have to wait.”

I don't know who's available. Craig Anderson seems like he would be cheap and is only one season removed from making the ECF with Ottawa. I really have no clue what they're gonna do.

It would be great to get a big name dman and goalie, but I just want them to make solid trades. Isles have Trotz so hopefully coaching can fix a lot of things as well. Figure we would see more teams giving up #1 picks for immediate help, but in a Cap world teams like to hold onto the #1's.

Just to clear things up: the New Islanders never offered either of their first-round picks for Phillip Grubauer. The Capitals certainly asked for one, and would have done the deal even without Orpik involved, but Lou Lamoriello was never willing to move a 1st for Grubauer

I think this was the right move. See what you can get for Nelson, Bellows, Witherspoon and the picks and other prospects.

Oh poop. You’re right about that. He was definitely selling those Penguins jerseys though. That was one funny day.

So I'm guessing Lou wasn't that high on Grubauer??? Could he have sent a second for him and Orpik? Would Orpik have been an upgrade for Islanders D?

I know these kids were supposed to go earlier but I'm not sure really? Whether a team thinks they're as valuable as McKenzie did at those spots dictates their value. We shall see we have quite a few holes to fill and Tavares to sign who supposedly wants to win now. Using two 1sts for two kids 2 or 3 years away from contributing doesn't fit that picture. Sorry for the negativity but right now this isn't rainbows and butterflies the way I see it. Sorry if I'm not conforming to the "group think"
- Cptmjl


I think the organization's done enough here to show Tavares it's serious about winning now. If, after all that, he ends up bolting strictly because they didn't rush a trade on a goalie, even while Lou said he plans to get someone before the season starts, then that's not such a great call on his part. They're not going into the season with Greiss and Gibson...Tavares knows that just as well as we do. Does it really mean the difference between staying and going if they end up with Anderson instead of Varlamov, or whatever? I think if Tavares leaves now, it's because he simply wants to leave; not because of any move Lou makes or doesn't make in the next day or so.

Agree with you that I wanted a trade, but after the Grubauer deal, there really were no trades made other than teams moving up or down a couple of spots. From all the talk, I thought deals were going to be happening every other pick, and if there was a flurry of action and the Isles sat on the sidelines, I'd be pretty pissed. But the way it all went down...with a lot of GMs on the phone but no deals made...tells me there were probably a lot of crap offers flying around last night. Hopefully they swing something today.

- chazpet


I think Orpik would have made the D a little better, but I'd like to see the Isles shed a couple of bad contracts rather than take another one on. Boychuk at 6, Ladd at 5.5, Bailey at 5, Clutter at 3.5, Cizikas at 3.35; even Pelech at 1.6...taken together, these make it hard to bring on another big salary where the player isn't worth every penny of that salary. If they ended up having to trade Lee or something to make up for bringing on Orpik, that'd be a pretty big net negative.

Day 2.... Trade Day??? Who is Lou having breakfast with????


I could care less about draft picks now... time to upgrade the current lineup.

They got 2 studs yesterday.

Trade the picks today.

Let's hope today is trade day.Does not have to be for all-star players. Let's get a goalie that can be the #1 guy even if he is not a clear #1 yet with Greiss being the backup. Trade Nelson in a package to a team that needs offense and has a goalie or dman to trade.

We need a top 4 at the very least, a starting goaltender, and a couple bottom 6 players. Tall order let's hope Lou can do it.

If it's true that the Oilers want to trade Cam Talbot... Isles should do it.

Not sure Edmonton will want anything to do with the Isles anymore...

Free Agency really takes a huge hit if JT and Carlson are off the board. Incredible how bad Free Agency gets every year.

Talking to some execs here in Dallas, consensus is that Lou and #Isles killed it yesterday with Wahlstrom and Dobson

"It fell in his lap and Lou doesn't f--- up something like that"


What a first round

Now let's hope Johnny re-signs

Lou had to be shocked Wahlstrom and Dobson were available. Hopefully with the 1st round done, we see more trades and especially if Carlson and JT are off the board. Free Agency got even worse if that is possible.
