The isles are banking on Sorokin to be their guy i think. As for Pietrangelo, i don’t know if he has a no movement clause but i doubt he wants to come here. The isles have 3 real blue chips on the backend, so i don’t see the need to address the D with this weak roster. We all knew this year was gonna be an evaluation year anyway. Adding Tarasenko would address the PP and adding a legit 30 goal scorer at a decent cap hit for the next 4-5 years in his prime.

He does have a NTC. He's also out for quite awhile, he's on LTIR.

Dobson could be a top pair d man i would hold him above all others

I agree. Wilde would be the dman I move in the right deal.

I think it's important to get a good look at Toews, Ho Sang and MDC. It will help in terms of knowing what moves are needed going forward.

Better be for a hell of a player. Wilde is tearing up the OHL and has size/speed/physicality. If he can reign in his decision making a bit he could be a really special player.

Ill get crap for this im sure but i think lou did the right thing signing lehner mooseknuckle and filpulla. We werent getting a top f.a. and he kept the entire prospect pool to see what he had there too. He may look to make a trade now but with all 3 of the guys i mentioned being on 1 year deals he can try and land a f.a. or 2 or make a bigger trade. This year was really a year to see what they have top to bottom and we have had better than expected results so far. Martin and komorov still suck though

I had no issue with the one year deals. It was the 4 for Leo and Hickey. I did not like Johnston at 4 years but it's not a huge deal.

People didn't like that he decommitted from UMichigan to go to the OHL, mostly. Won't ever blame anyone for that, the CHL has a schedule and competition that's much more comparable to the NHL and you can't fault guys for wanting to play where they think they'll develop best.

Hickey seems to be lost out there this year. He is the one I am more upset about to be honest. Was that a snow signing?? I forget

Lou signed Hickey. Isles were trying to re-sign de Haan and missed out. I would have still let Hickey walk.

I have no problem with any of those one year contracts. This year was a throwaway as soon as pajama boy walked. Plus Filppula has been better than I expected.

Noah Dobson was traded to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, who are the best team in the Q this year. Gonna see his numbers make a big jump, most likely.

Acadie-Bathurst is the worst team in the league (they have 6 wins and a (frank)ing -86 goal differential ) and Dobson was third on the team in points......with 16 in 28gp

Scott Gordon is now the Philadelphia Flyers' interim coach. But could he end up as their next head coach? #NHL http://www.espn.com/espn/now?nowId=21-41049340-4


Please, yes. One less Metro team to worry about

He’s had a ton of gigs since then and was highly touted in all honesty when he took the job with us. Maybe it’s his time...
