Dude don't misconstrue what I'm saying as negative it's more of an observation and I think it's pretty spot on and realistic but when it comes down to it is just my opinion. Leave it at that
We're both on the same side.

At this point I don’t even care if Tavares signs here. I mean I think we will be fine with or without him and we will have that money to get what we need. Whether it’s free agents or even trades. We will be fine and if JT don’t want to be part then don’t let the door hit you on your way out

Would I be able to trouble you for a PM of suggested charters? I’m aiming to make a trip in 2019/2020, sometime between October and March. Figured I should start on the research sooner than later.

Just an FYI, best time for stripers is late November early December. Season usually closes around December 15th.

When the herring and gannets are here it can be a blast finding them when they boil at the surface!

Pronmans draft grade for isles
https://theathletic.com/4...he-top-with-strong-draft/

This is a smal.bit and yes I'm aware it doesn't help the team now

Grade:​ A

The​ Islanders’ Day​ 1​ was big​ for them, as​ they​ added​ two​ high-end​ talents in​ Oliver Wahlstrom and​​ Noah Dobson, with Wahlstrom, in particular, being a massive add to their system. In getting Bode Wilde and Ruslan Iskhakov on Day 2 right away, they got four of my top 20 prospects in the class. That’s a massive injection of talent and fundamentally changed the state of their farm system from being mediocre to one of the league’s strongest. Jakub Skarek was fine at No. 72, a little high for me but he was one of the top goalie prospects. The rest of their picks were a mixture of underwhelming to a shot in dark, but really, this was a great weekend for their future

Yup, at least we know Lou wont over pay a guy like say Garth. Probably sits down with the cap guy he brought in and they come up with a number and that's it

As reported earlier, it is believed that he will meet with the Toronto Maple Leafs, San Jose Sharks, and Dallas Stars and possibly the Tampa Bay Lightning, Vegas Golden Knights and the Montreal Canadiens, although that isn’t too clear so far. However, Staples writes that an earlier rumor today that the Islanders made an eight-year, $88MM deal may not be accurate. He believes in the end, whether offered by the Islanders or another team, that Tavares will be making $12MM per year, which Lamoriello has said that ownership has said that money is no object.

Grubauer signed for basically what we pay Greiss.

Sorry thought he did not? I'm an old (frank). Yeah sorry boys I'm not as enthusiastic as some about the draft I'm done with prospects and the prospect of them . I feel this draft was meant to give the team immediate help and I feel that's what Tavares was looking for as well. We've been rebuilding the team for twelve years and we've been mediocre at best. I get it we have new management and the best coach available but I was hoping for something different and I feel Tavares was also. Who knows maybe there were no trades to be made? Maybe we'll do something big later(unusual)? Maybe I'm wrong assuming what Tavares is thinking who knows? All I know is I was expecting something different and I'm a bit disappointed but I do have faith in Lou to right it but I don't feel as overly confident as I once did about Tavares...
- Cptmjl

If JT walks, we’re going to need all the prospects we can get, because the isles will be starting a new rebuild, this time with people in place who actually know how to build a championship team

I want JT to re-sign, but I don’t want the isles to have to beg him to re-sign. If JT doesn’t want to come back and only would be doing so for the money or contract term, then I hope he signs elsewhere. I want the players on the isles to want to be Islanders. With lou and Trotz running things, I am confident that the isles will be fine in the long run with or without JT.

Well either sign him for what the market bares or lose him for nothing. If your talking about a Cap hit of 10 to 12 for your franchise player what’s the difference if it’s 10 or 12. If you want JT to stay then your gonna have to pay him or someone else will.
