I get there are only so many things they can do with what they have...but enough with Boonfrackle in the top six. Just...stop with that.

#Isles Barry Trotz says flip-flopping Josh Bailey (with Val Filppula and Leo Komarov) and Tom Kuhnhackl (with Mat Barzal and Anthony Beauvilluer) done to try and bring “more balance” to lines.

- UIF

Balance=less scoring with this line up

Somewhat struggling player in Barzal the answer to getting him going most likely isn’t Mooseknucle

Also, by all means Gomez keep Clutterbuck on the PP that should start clicking soon. We didn’t score a PP goal in the entire month of November going on December 😂

Doug and Cappy are gone and we still get these bizarre moves.

Yeah I know, these guys all have Russian agents and NA agents and I'm sure the Russian agents will do whatever sneaky KGB shit they can to get these guys to stick around the Motherland as long as possible.

I gave up on expecting anything out of Russian players in the KHL way back during the draft with Petrov. It went from something like, "He has two years left on his contract" before the draft to, "Oh, look at that, he's actually signed for 263 years!" like a day after the draft. Then these guys finally come over with a truckload of bad habits, and if you want to send them to the minors to work some of that out of their game, they take their ball and leave.

I'd rather just trade for a goalie.

I get we have no real depth unless you consider Johnston as such but to continue to throw that same mess out there is bordering on funny at this point.

You cannot have Moose in the top 6 unless you have players like Crosby and Malkin. If trades cannot happen or Bridge has no forwards ready to make the jump, you have to live and die with Barzal Lee Eberle and Nelson Beau Bailey in the top 6 and on the PP.

Yeah, I guess four lines scoring no goals is technically more balanced that one line scoring a goal and the other three scoring zero

If there's an opening on the top 6 RW because you need to send a message, I'd say call Ho-Sang up and give him a game or two to show what he has. If he (frank)s up, then drop him back down and that's that...dump him off on someone for a 5th round pick before he goes crying to the media about it

If a call-up isn't happening because eXpeRieNcE, then I think Filppula's probably the guy who's earned a game in the top six.

Still too much favoritism to vets and grinders with Lou and Barry. That needs to change before the Isles have real success.

Yeah he has BUT I know Trotz looks at it as losing scoring through his line up if he moves him up. It’s a tough call with this personel but I agree ultimately you have to start inserting some youth into the line up. You’re sabotaging your top two scoring lines by doing this. Having Kuhnhackl in your top 6 or Clutterbuck on your power play should not even be a thought and if it is change something so you never have that thought again.

Hells yes it is. Add a couple intelligent FA signings, a rookie or two, and the Islanders are gonna have a very different look next season.

Hey you never know maybe something will happen but this is why I never get to caught up with what’s going on with this kid. Maybe he’ll come over early or when his contract is done or maybe he’ll sign another one? Who the (frank) knows? That seems to be our luck with these Russkies.

Would be great for Sharek to make the jump next year and play well for the Isles while Sorokin is still in Russia.

On Ilya Sorokin's situation: if he wants to buy his contract out, he must apply for the process 15 months before the actual buyout. He hasn't yet. So either CSKA lets him go (they won't) or he stays until 2020 #Isles
