I don't disagree with your sentiment or the logic, but they're going to. It'll piss off a lot of Islander fans but it would be terrible PR for them to be petty enough to just ignore his tenure here.

The good news is that it'll be met with boo's raining down from every seat, save for a few assbag do-gooders that act like they're better than everyone else.

I thought the same thing when it was announced. "Do they have any idea what they've done???"

Yeaaah, this will be on every sports media outlet as soon as the game is over. (perhaps during) He Who Shall Not Be Named will be getting a drunken, raucous, Long Island welcome. From stuff being thrown throughout the game, to chants that will be, err, R rated, it's setting up to one of the most legendary(possibly, for all the "wrong" reasons) nights in Isles history.

Oh I think he'll be made plenty aware on February 28th

I loved whatever other stupid interview it was where he said, something along the lines of, "I hope I get a warm reception but I'm unsure of what will happen". Really? I'm pretty sure we all know what's going to happen. The Islanders will be stupid enough to make some dumbass video tribute and the ice/Leafs bench is going to get littered with 16,000 plastic beer bottles and other assorted garbage.

Feb 28th is a Thursday. How many on here are going? I might have to make the trip down. Upstate, you and I should meet in Albany and take the train down. Booze it up and get an uber to the coli...if only we knew someone who drove an uber

Is it just me or it’s still kind of unreal seeing our Islanders with a real coach, who actually wears nice suits behind the bench...?

@AGrossNewsday

Was knee to thigh, not knee to knee, so that's a positive. Trotz mentioned both Bailey and Kuhnhackl as possible centers.
I'd say Bailey would move between Lee and Eberle and either Kuhnhackl or Ho-Sang goes to Barzal's RW w/Beauvillier, the other on third line.

Pretty sure Bailey was drafted as a Center. I can't remember whether he ever played the position on the Islanders. For years it seemed the Isles had a surplus of centers. Now all of a sudden they're none left.

I think Bailey played center as a rookie. He does not seem that noticeable lately might as well try him at center.

That was by far our most complete game of the year. Also Eberle played with purpose and Cizikas line shut down McKinnon and Co.

Im not going to get too excited b/c i would be more happy if isles can come in and win tonight in Ari. However i expect them to be classic islanders and come in slow and lay an egg.

If Bailey goes to center, Coach UIF would go with:

Beau-Barzal-Eberle
Lee-Bailey-Ho-Sang
Third line
Fourth line

- ses111

Yeah, you could be right about his rookie season, although I cheated and looked up the old roster.
https://www.nhl.com/islanders/roster/2008

Bailey is listed as a right wing, and the other centers include, among others: Doug Weight, Mike Sillinger, Mike Comrie, Frans Nielsen, Jeremy Colliton, and Nate Thompson. So I'm not sure how much time Bailey would have seen at center, but probably not much.

Having said all that, Bailey might be the best of the bad choices at center.

Good start so far. 1 turnover almost bit us but Lehner stood up to the test.

Edit: Pelech could have been tighter and Lehner has to make that save short side.

Ho Sang looks active so far. Team looks good. No letdown after last night's good win, it appears.
