He's not. But the AHL ain't the NHL, so I can't say if his success would transfer to the big show. The only thing that is certain, is that Pelech is consistently overwhelmed playing against NHL competition.

The Isles blueline needs so much work it's scary You could literally make arguments of varying strengths for replacing all 7 of the regular guys.

Not necessarily against it, but his NHL numbers haven't been all that great. Granted, Philly is a tire-fire this year and he only played one NHL game last year...but even with 50 games in COL two seasons ago he wasn't particularly great. I'd be happy to send him to BPT to bolster the net, but if they wanted to give him a look in the NHL I can't say I'd be totally against it.

I'm just phucking with you. Send his ass to the bridge and kick Gibson to the curb I'm with you. We get rid of another one of garth's great goalie prospects. Garth's 3 goalie system sucked.

Well yeah, though I'd hesitate to put Pulock on that list.

So since Philly is looking to mix things up, think there are any deals to be done between the two clubs?

Wasn't really sure which way you were going.

Heads up to #isles fans: indication I get is that puck drop tomorrow in Bos is 8:08, after ceremony retiring Rick Middleton’s number. Hope it’s not as interminable as the Elias filibuster in NJ last season.

I hope he has the same mentality about Pelech/calling up Toews. Pelech has to be another bonehead-move away from playing himself right out of this lineup.
- eichiefs9


Have to hope chief. I was hoping Barry and Lou would be quicker to make moves.

I honestly can’t see an argument of any sorts to replace Pulock. RH affordable D with solid offensive instincts are pretty (frank)ing rare.

Yeah it'd be a weak argument, but he hasn't played the way this year that he finished last season.

This is purely theoretical, because I know he's probably re-signing, but I'd strongly consider moving him for Nylander.

Best not. That’d have a negative impact on the quality of his weekend gigs.

- Wildschwein

I'd give Nylander 8x8 without blinking. He's a star now and $8M will be a bargain for him in 3-4 years as the cap goes up and the inevitable guilt-free compliance buyout comes with Seattle's entry into the league. Pulock may develop into a star or he may not.

Just to be clear, this is more of a compliment to Nylander than it is a slight to Pulock. With Toews beating down the door as the next offensive defenseman I think it hedges against enough of the risk of moving Pulock to make me comfortable in trading him.

His offensive game will come im pretty certain Trotz has him playing a more structured, defensive game he’ll probably let loose the reigns a little bit as the season progresses. I believe there’s still in a feeling out process as far as what their responsibilities are.

Fair enough. Though that’d cause Barzal almost certainly to ask for 10.

If he keeps doing his thing and improving then it'll be well worth it.

Also fair, and fits in with the Trotz mantra.

18 mill for your top two centres. Pricey but not unheard of.

I was really thinking of Nylander as a winger. I know he's played some pivot in the past, but I'm honestly not sure how much he's played in the NHL. If he could be the 2C that would be even better.

Absolutely. Trotz even states that they are "headed in the right direction", though obviously not there yet. And then adds, "we will get there". Its SO refreshing to have a head coach and staff (outside of Gomez;damn that power play sucks) that know what they are doing.

He’s a C/RW hybrid. Only ups his value really.

Two areas the Islanders are painfully thin at. Like I said, I know it ain't happening, but if Pulock and another (reasonable) asset were the price tag I'd probably have pulled the trigger if it were up to me.
