TRANSACTION: The #SoundTigers have agreed to terms with goaltender Evan Buitenhuis on an #AHL deal.

Full story: https://bit.ly/2DvSr09


I'm guessing Soderstrom just got sucked into a black hole or something.

- UIF

Hence why I have zero faith in any goaltender we pick in the draft. Hasn’t worked out since milbury and he picked a good one then traded away the only good goalie prospect we had in thirty years😂

Hopefully that changes with Lou. Obvious tough to pick a good to great goalie but this has been ongoing for a very long time.

Very disappointing. Soderstrom was suppose to be at Bridge this year. Another drafted Garth goalie who cannot stay healthy.

I was trying to be polite with the "I don't think so," but it's no...Lee hasn't been with Barzal 5-on-5 this season Maybe they were on the ice together a couple of times in between a line change or two.

Lee AND Barzal on the same line? It'll either be fantastic or disastrous.

Well to be fair, Sorokin shows every sign of being a great goalie. Just need to convince him to cross the ocean.

It's incredible though how many goalies Garth missed on and he was a goalie.

Pretty decent at drafting skaters though, I got to give him that. For every Strome, Dal Colle and Reinhart in the first round, he and his staff would score on gems like Spurgeon, Hamonic, Lee, and Toews in the latter rounds.

Garf Bag missed on most of the things he did. Got lucky once in a while but for the most part sucked ass.

Soderstrom isn't coming over this year and the goal-tending in Bridgeport sucks. This move is to fix their current issue and not a reflection of Soderstroms future

I'm pretty sure he already came over but just wasn't healthy enough to play. Didn't he have hip surgery or something in the offseason?

Sorry 7, but I can't agree when it comes to drafting skaters. Look at the following for comparison purposes.

Since 06 the Isles hit on Okposo, Bailey, Hamonic, Martin, Spurgeon, Lee, Cizikas, de Haan, Nilsson, Tavares, Niederreiter, Nelson, Mayfield, Strome, Pelech, Pulock, Beauvillier, Barzal. All of the above are useful NHL'ers.

Likely hits include Sorokin, Ho Sang, Bellows, Toews, Aho.

Since 06 the Oil hit on Petry, Gagner, Davidson (sorta), Hall, Pitlick, Klefbom, Nuge, Rieder, Khaira, Nurse, Draisaitl and McDavid.

Likely hits include Jones, Bear, Bouchard, Benson, Yamamoto, Puljujarvi, Maksimov.

All in all his drafting wasn't that bad. It was how he handled such draft successes that sucked.

Yeah I get what your saying Schwein. I don’t know the draft positions of the two teams and trust me I’m not looking but it’s the whole Snow tenure that puts a bad taste in my mouth and it causes me to over look some of the good things he did.
That said the results in total under his watch was a total poopshow and nothing in my mind more than a failure.

I don’t think he will ever be hired as a GM in the NHL again imho.

Yea you're correct on that hes still rehabbing I think. Either way this is a reflection of them needing help down there not in soderstrom or sorokin. wouldn't be islesland if the sky wasn't falling

With all of this goal-tending talk I still find it amazing he kept JFB all year and since he left like 4 other teams have dumped him. Really shows how valuable he was and how the isles needed to keep the guy moron snow
