If the Blackhawks are going to tear it all down I wonder what it would take to get P. Kane.

Ebrele, MDC, Toews seems like a fair offer.

I think its reasonable for both sides. They get younger and move a huge contract and we get a former MVP player.

Lou has to get creative and move some bad deals. No way Chi would ever make that deal but if they did you would have to find a way to squeeze him in

Sorry but they are not trading one of the best players in the league for a couple of B level prospects and a forward who is a UFA at the end of the year

Another article by someone who has not watched a single Islander's game but somehow feels they know everything about the team. The difference has nothing to do with the goaltending. It has to do with the non stop odd man rushes stopping. This team always had good enough talent to score goals with our without JT. they were top 2 in the league in goals last year. They played zero structure on defense and had a million odd man rushes against. their goaltenders never had a chance. Greiss is playing great this year b/c he is facing shot from the perimeter. He is not sliding back and forth like he is in a slide class at a gym.

If anything I think this team will get better as the year progresses... not worse. They have done this well without Barzal lighting it up. They have done this well without some of the talent in B-port on the team yet. ...

Don't get me wrong, I'd love Kane...but this season + 4 more at $10.5M on the cap is just impossible to add and re-sign Lee and, likely, Nelson. That's not even taking into a account deals for Barzal, etc...

Lou would have to get pretty god damned creative to fit that deal in in the long-run.

The Islanders will regress at some point. Their PDO is historically high and once that normalizes I think we'll see a correction.

I can’t stand the guy that wrote this along with Campbell and the rest of the whiny snow flakes that write for this now rag but he’s most likely right to an extent. Though his reasoning for why things may be trending positive are a bit off ultimately this team will more than likely start to level off.

They’re not going to keep up that shooting percentage most likely and their 5 on 5 numbers are pretty terrible. Also the goaltenders have been playing well as you can see by how many high danger scoring opportunities they’re giving up. Usually that leads to a team leveling off but who knows maybe Trotz fixes it on the fly and the team corrects itself in season. We shall see...

if there is a blackhawk worth taken its Duncan Keith. Maybe he lost a step but he is 5.5M a year which is huge upgrade over anything we have.

Re-unite him with Leddy.

Huh?

Edit; oh I see Todd Cordell and James tanner. James tanner hates the Islanders more because we for a period as a group destroyed him on his thread. He has a more fragile ego than BD. Cordell is well Todd Cordell and he’s probably just upset the Devils have regressed on top of being Todd Cordell. What they’re saying isn’t completely wrong(though who knows it’s not definitive right either...)but the vitriol they’re conveying it with kind of tells you where it’s coming from.

The comment about Barry being overrated should get a permanent HB ban.

I normally ignore his stuff because its a waste of time but all the comments about it made me read it. Most of the stuff he said has been said on this board. He just took it further.
