I have no idea if it's going to be streamed or not and I can't seem to find any info on that. I know it has been in the past, but it's usually dogshit quality video anyway

Mini-camp roster. Mike Babcock's kid is invited. Doesn't mean anything, but it's noteworthy.

Merrimack is a good hockey program.

Random question, but has there been anything said on when Tavares will make his decision. Obviously he's listening to teams now, but after hearing all offers, its seems like a decision should come pretty quickly no?

Lots of guys from weird international leagues.

By my count on that list, I've seen:

- German league
- Austrain league
- Swiss league
- Asia league (of course)
- and then the usual suspects (Swedish/Finnish/Russian)

He's gotta make it before July 1st if it's going to be with the Islanders, otherwise he forfeits the ability to get the 8th year. So by 11:59PM on June 30th, we'll know what he's doing. If he's not signed by then, I have to imagine he's not coming back. It would be stupid to piss away an extra year of guaranteed money and then re-sign here.

I just dont think any of these teams have the young talent the isles have. Im not saying they dont have talent, but the isles have the makings of a powerhouse team in the next few years.

It's possible, but we've thought that before too.

Obviously things are much different now, but prospects are prospects and nobody is guaranteed to be what we hope/think they could be.

But I think the fact that he's a loyal guy, can get the 8th year here, sees how much overhauling they've done for him, and the fact that "home" is already here for him bodes well for the Isles in this whole circus.

Yeah i wasnt even referring to draft picks. But, having Barzal as the 2c, takes some pressure off JT to be the only guy making the big play. Tavares and Barzal as the 1 and 2c respectively rivals any other team in the league.

But the problem in goal and defense is still there. I'm sure Lou is working on that (i hope), but it's still a gaping hole in the line up. Which could also play into JT's decision-making process.

100% true, but im not worried that Lou will go out and address said holes. Every team he's worked for he's addressed the need for a #1.

That we have. JT has to see that there' a huge attempt to right the ship. But has it been righted enough, or it will be, for him to stay. As you said, we'll know by 11:59pm June 30th.

No doubt he will. But, will JT's perception be that it will be fixed. Or will he just think "You guys have had years to correct these issues and haven't. Why should I believe a magic wand will be waved and be corrected now?"

There is literally nothing more that this ownership coulda done to appease their star player, except maybe hire JTs dad as a scout ha. If he chooses to play elsewhere, its clear he didnt wanna be here. This team has done more in one month than they have in a decade.

They could have removed the wholly-incompetent GM years ago. If that were the case Tavares probably would have been signed 6 months ago.

You're absolutely right. Since Snow didn't address any of the holes at the deadline, it compounded the problem. The owners did what they could. Snow didn't.

True to a degree, but they've only owned it for 2 years. And of course Wang had to screw things up one more time before he left.

Looking back at this whole mess.........no team should ever get to a point where their star is listening to other teams. The status quo of being a bubble team went on far too long. A real team had 91 signed and extended already.

Meh, is Tampa a real team? They had to go through this process with Stamkos, even though Yzerman is a well-regarded GM.

And the last time the Isles where a real team was....
This whole organization has been a floundering circus for 25 years. From Spano to Gluckstern/Millstein to Milbury to Snow. Wang. I mean, it just goes on and on.
