JT leaving will set the team back years. The only way I'll feel good about it is if he signs a ludicrous contract.

Hey at least we have what looks like a legit number 1 center in barzal.

It'll be interesting to see how the team responds this season if he does leave. May work out better for us?
- Cptmjl


Big loss of offense then again with Trotz you need less offense because the D should be better and offense should still not fall of a cliff as Lou will bring in the players to have the offense.

I disagree. JT leaving with Garth and Doug still running things sets the team back years. Team still would have Barzal, Eberle, Lee, Bailey, Beau and not to mention the players Lou will bring in.

Always subject to change between now and Sunday, but at this hour on the goalie carousel, it would appear Carter Hutton is the leading option in Buffalo, Jonathan Bernier likely headed to Detroit and as we said before, Cam Ward likely to Chicago...

I would have to see what Lou does in terms of moves. If Lou does nothing and sits on the Cap space then yes it crushes the Isles for this year. I still think Lou and Trotz can put together a good team without JT.

I dont think they're gonna sit back if JT walks......but he's not easily replaceable. It will prob take a few years to get there.

Winning a Cup yes I agree that would probably take a few year. You just never know though. Things can fall into place very quickly with the right moves. Who thought Vegas would make the Cup this year?

Any team that loses a player like JT for nothing will be set back years.

Lou is not a miracle worker. I'm as excited as anyone that Snow is finally out of power and the team has credible management, but they can only do so much.

Lou does not have to be a miracle worker especially when the team has a real coach for once. I'll go back to my point about Vegas. Nobody expected much for them. Vegas did not have these huge proven name players. Isles already have some big pieces to work with and can add even more.

You're comparing apples to kiwis. It doesn't matter who the isles brought in to manage and coach. IF 91 walks, you're losing a pt per game. My opinion is if he decides to walk, I would have no problem with a re build, and let Lou and Barry start from scratch.

I don't think they would have to start from scratch. They would have a ton of cash and prospects to make some deals. Yeah its a setback but not to the point you tear it down and rebuild IMO

I shudder at the thought of enduring another rebuild. This shat has been going on for to long. We don't need a full rebuild imo we have a lot of pieces it's just more time figuring out whether what prospects we have will pan out. Player development has to be improved hopefully the start will be launching Thompson into orbit time for a clean slate once this saga is over.

Exactly! You have a winning GM and coach with still good pieces to work around and they would have a ton of money and prospects to move if needed.

It’s not all doom and gloom my friend. Islanders still have plenty of pieces and lou is not going to sit there and do nothing. Honestly I don’t even think it sets us back much. You get stellar defense and goalie you win bottom line
