Kuhknackle seems to be a decent signing thus far.....as is the case for Fillpula. Amazing that Lou brings in guys who are contributing. Dare i say the Lou “overpaid, bad signings” are outperforming “most” of Snows picks....

Lou needs to be careful as Chia is very shifty.

That's a very polite way to say "Chia has no idea what the (frank) he is doing".

Coupla bad trades yes. But would you rather have 12 years of him sitting on his hands? My point is he’s a gunslinger and sometimes it doesn’t work. But at least he’s active. I much prefer an active GM than what we saw over here on the island.

Well lets not get ahead of ourselves now. Been more than a little bit of overpayment and puck luck involved in said signings.

But yes, the players he has brought in seem to have a strong work ethic at the least. Not terribly talented per se, but hard workers with some defensive acumen.

His trades don't piss me off half as bad as his FA signings (with the exceptions of the Reinhart and Strome/Eberle trades of course).

Kinda a matter of perspective really.

Actually it is sort of amazing how Chiarelli continues to rob my western team to the benefit my eastern team. Softens the blow somewhat.

If I recall correctly, I started poking my nose around here when I bet on the Isles to beat the Panthers back in 2016. So after the Reinhart trade, but before the emergence of Barzal and before the Eberle trade.

If anything I brought you (frank)ers some tremendously good Oil bagwa.

He (Reinhart) was a 4th overall pick. How many 4th overall picks are lousy? (cue Thomas Hickey)

The most I give up for Reinhart would have been a 2nd.

Well if we make it top 5 instead of 4th overall...

DiPietro
Hickey (didn’t actually draft him but you traded for him, which is worse)
Dal Colle (maybe sucks)
Strome (assuredly sucks)
Tavares (cunt)
Reinhart
Torres

Moral of the story, Islanders should always trade down.

Dude. They won that round AFTER I started rooting for them. Snow was fired AFTER I started rooting for them.

I had no control over the franchise PRIOR to 2016. Thus I am a mother(frank)ing saviour.

Indeed Snow should always trade down, if he ever gets another GM job.

For the record, pretty sure Hickey wasn't traded for. I think he was a waiver pick-up. Also, DiPietro was an all-star. That doesn't mean he was great, but he wasn't as bad as most of the others.

Who is this Tavares?

Sooo...

Positive Schwein
Won playoff round
Fired Snow
Fired Capuano
Bailey emerges as a top 6 winger and signs below market extension
Hired Trotz
Hired Lou
Eberle trade
Emergence of Barzal
Lee scores 40 and is made Captain
Isles draft Wahlstrom and Dobson

Negative Schwein
Pajama bitch left
Hickey extended
Ladd signs as FA

I'd say I'm doing splendidly.
