Frustrating... I get they are doing the whole tough love thing with him, but it gets friggin old. If we ever get a line up with him Barzal, and Bouv in it flying around the ice it will give teams match up nightmares. I am tired of the "He turns it over" crap. This team is loaded with guys who turn the puck over constantly. Give the kid a shot.

I would get the tough love thing if Ho Sang actually playing a game and really messed up. If Barry was not hired, it would be tough to tell Garth was not still in charge with some of these same moves we saw with Garth.

As a team the Islanders have 97 more giveaways than takeaways.

Mayfield, Hickey, Boychuck and Leddy combine for 63 of those 97.

If he sits, I'm not surprised. Trotz hasn't really been a coach who takes risks or puts a lot of faith in unknowns. This probably also settles the question of where he'll play when he does get in...I think it'll most likely be minimal minutes on a bottom-six line.

Let me state this very clearly. I'm thrilled Barry is the coach but can Barry please stop coaching every game like it's game 7 and the world will end if he puts in a young prospect into a top 6 role? Lou brought in Fili, Leo, Robin, Martin, and Hickey. Does this scream Cup or bust this year?

I just don't like calling up guys that aren't going to play. Leave hm down there if you don't think he deserves the ice time.

In other news...

“Matt Martin had eight hits in a lopsided 6-2 loss to the Penguins the other night. That line combined for fourteen hits.”

Worth every penny😂

I love when I saw this as I was catching up page by page knowing he would eventually score the game winner.

I guess I'd say it's maybe taking the good with the bad. The fact that he does treat every game like that is probably why this team's not dead last. But, yeah, it's frustrating when an old school guy like Lou finally does call someone up and then the coach plays it even safer than Lou.

When the top 6 has struggled like they have and MDC cannot get a game on the top 6 and Ho Sang may sit out tonight is dumb. Lou and Barry need to understand not every young player will be Stevens, Brodeur, and Ovie.

Yeah that’s my angle also and if you do call them up give them a decent chance. No offense to Gionta but...😂

I'm not familiar with JHS's contract, but a lot of them call for more money when a guy gets called up, play or not. Plus, they get to travel with the team with NHL accommodations which is a whole lot better than riding the bus in the AHL. Also, it's a long season, guys get banged up all the time, relaxing and watching a game with the GM from the pressbox isn't the biggest hardship.

So, while I'm sure JHS would rather be playing in tonight's game, I do think he understands he's being rewarded just getting called up.

I guess that raises the question, why are they paying him more to not play?

actually laughed out loud... I just keep saying to myself that Trotz knows what he is doing and just let him do his thing... my hope is they see something in Hickey and Pelech that I am clearly missing. Or maybe they are just trying to make them trade-able? ... Hickey has flashes of decency on the offensive side but he just stinks at being a defenseman. He is not big enough. He gets tossed around easily. He is constantly way out of position. ...etc. etc. etc.

I can almost understand the playing of all the vets at first to implement his system. These guys will show everyone how I want things done... then I can plug in more talented players into system once all have it...etc. But ..eventually you need the talent to succeed. Our PP is basically 1- the last 40 and the 1 was a 5-on-3. Get some friggin talent on the team. Ho-sang, Bellows, and Teows would make this team more talented.

How many times do we need to see Leo and Mooseknuckle miss a great chance set up by another player?

Most likely for a little more than three years in Leo’s case.
