Oh yeah me too but it’s funny to think how horrible he mismanaged this team and for how long. 😂 Looking forward to the game on Saturday but it’ll be a tough match up for us after playing the night before.

Whatever, it's behind us...thank god. Eventually the pain of losing pajama boy will be trumped by the joy of gaining Trotz. I still have my reservations about Lou, but so far it's been mostly positive.

I think we as fans will see more of what Lou brings to the table after he’s had control for more than a year. He had to field a team, a competitive team this year.

I'm not writing him off or saying he sucks, just that I have my reservations that the old-school brand of GM will be successful in today's NHL. Outside of the Komarov signing, he hasn't really done anything negative. I just fear what he may ultimately do/not-do down the line.

This trade deadline is going to be a real challenge in terms of what Lou does. If Isles were clearly out they just move what they can. Isles show no signs of falling out of the playoff race. Seems now the Isles need more offense but who gets moved and for what?

Yeah I’m not feeling especially confident about it but they have surprised me a few times this season so far so hopefully they can supersede my expectations.😂

I doubt they do much, unless they move significantly up or down the standings. Looks like, as of now, the Atlantic is going to take the two wildcard spots. They'll have to be inside the top-3 in the Metro to make the playoffs. I can't imagine they spend a ton of assets to maybe squeak in.

You have to think he wants to dump Eberle for something I wonder if he does that even if we are pushing for a spot.

If Ho Sang continues playing well...it's going to make Eberle expendable for sure

I cannot see Lou making a big move. Probably save it for the summer. Who will really be available besides bottom pair dmen and the Isles have plenty of those. Isles are doing well in net so I do not see any goalies bringing brought in this year. This current team probably gets a run this year and if they do not make the playoffs, Lou is active in the offseason.

Yeah I saw that earlier. Doubtful it's a trade, but I guess you never know.

I still trade Eberle this year regardless. Let JHS play two 6 the rest of the way and bring in MDC to take JHS spot on the 3rd line. You find out about JHS and MDC and it helps you decide what moves are needed in the offseason.

I'm thrilled that he's piling up the goals/points, but there's no guarantee it's going to translate to the NHL. Plenty of guys have been big-time AHL scorers but never panned out in the NHL.

I'm rooting for him for sure, but I'm starting to think he might have more value in a trade than to the Islanders

No guarantees at all chief. Would not shock me if MDC were a decent scorer in the NHL. I do not see him as a 70 or 80 point player. If he needs to be included in a trade for a needed piece so be it.

Sounds like Hickey is back soon, which sucks for Toews. He's not gonna stick around as the 7th defenseman.

Something's gotta give with Pelech soon.

He may never be an nhl player but I would like to see him play a few more times with the big club for more than four mins and maybe not on a line with Gionta centering it😂

Love the idea of Leddy, Pulock, and Toews on the backend. Would not mind seeing Aho and Mayfield as a 3rd pair and Toews and Pulock 2nd pair.

I would honestly love to see Leddy take a seat and be held accountable for his terrible play be damned his transitional game. The guy deserves to sit just as much as Pelech does. There’s maybe even an argument to say he has been worse than Pelech.

This is not unfair but trotz has said hes doing a great job in post game interviews, maybe trying to boost his confidence?

Even getting a 2nd back and some lower picks is something. Eberle is not doing much anyway and does not deserve a big deal. Just finding out what JHS can do the reminder of the season is a big plus.
