It’s now or never. He’s been down in the minors for years. He better be bringing it or he’s gonna be light in the wallet down the road.

Unfortunately, I suspect that the country club atmosphere established under the late Charles Wang reached all the way down to the minors. But Malkin means business. So does Lou. So does Trotz. And that is being felt now throughout the organization.

For us fans........it's about time.

Not seeing Eberle, Filppula or Hickey at practice this morning. Komarov practicing at center in place of Fil. #Isles




This team desperately needs center depth.

Rooting for the kid. At best we have added another contributor to the team at worst he’s upping his trade value if Uncle Lou decides to do something.

Yep! Such a big plus if MDC and JHS stick. Will be a huge plus for the Cap and allow the Isles to spend big elsewhere.

Have to think Bridge was affected as well John. MDC and Ho Sang showing something this year does not seem by chance.

All you can ask for is a solid chance. Hopefully MDC and JHS continue to take advantage. I think the Isles prospects have a real chance to develop with Lou and Barry.

MDC’s last two games are making an impression. Kid battled in the last game. Hopefully he starts putting up some points we can use the depth now.

I am still not sold on him at this point. I am worried about his speed. I think the very second he gets comfortable and doesn't go 100% every shift We will hate him. I want him to play well so we can move him...

Don’t get me wrong I don’t think anyone is “sold” on him I’m just pointing out he’s playing a helluva lot better than we’ve seen. If he actually turned a corner it would be huge for us for the reasons I mentioned whether it’s trading him or him staying and contributing.

Hear you.. and who knows maybe he is one of those guys that just takes a long time to develop but in general I have a lot more patience with D-men in that regard instead of forwards. the Pick still baffles me almost as much as Strome.

Even a near-NHL-ready prospect swap could work.

I wouldn't put too much time with respect to Snows draft picks. Last years draft under this new regime was excellent. Nobody will ever explain how that guy held that position for as long as he did with zero results

Nilsson has sure moved around. EK mentioned Isles as one of the team interested in Hagelin. Would be great to add his speed with Barzal, Beau, JHS.

Hagelin is fast, but that’s about it. I’d skip him.

Sounds like Grabner. At least would be another good PK player. Trade Cal for him.

McKenna, Pyatt (who I thought was on waivers), and a 6th rounder in '19 for Nilsson and Archibald
