Totally agree mdw.

The 1st game as soon as Sam said the shots were 11-0 in the 3rd, I turned to my gf and said the Isles will win with 1 shot. I got blamed for that loss

Weird 2 games each team won the game they probably shouldn't have
- mdw7413


Well from a moral standpoint, I think it could be argued that the Rangers shouldn't win any game.

But that's just my opinion of course.

He’s good in the locker room great I know we’re trying to do a full culture change here but let’s not fool ourselves and say he’s playing good because that’s not the case. Guy had a decent run earlier in the season but he’s had a rough stretch for a while and it shows with the third line looking the way it does. Hopefully he ups his game.

I can agree that Komarov has made a few mistakes in the past few games. But I cannot say that he is the Islanders' biggest problem (not saying that you're saying that either), since he doesn't see any power play time. He has mostly performed his role adequately this season, as a checking line forward who plays the PK. Goals from him are a bonus, and not to be counted on.

Now one COULD make the argument that the old strategy of having a checking line is outmoded in today's NHL........that you need at least 3 lines that you can rely on for scoring goals. But it's tough to put together 3 such lines in the salary cap era.

I'll take one game with Fili MDC and JHS as a 3rd line. I know Leo has a 4 year contract but he can sit a game or two.

Would have been nice if she was an Isles fan, then I could (frank) the Isles a couple times a week.

Once again getting his shot on net whether on the PP or not is a problem. Other than that He has played well and Grown into his top 4 role on the team.

As far as Komorov. He’s not going to dazzle anyone with his dangling or explosive shot but he’s sound defensively a plus player who typically plays against other teams top 2 lines. His effort and work on the PK is noticeable and it is certainly better since he’s been on it. I know it is the opposite feeling of the masses on here but it’s my opinion. That said the PK was perfect yesterday and the PP well let’s not go there again.

Pulock doesn't generally have the entire net to shoot at. More often that not, he's got too much traffic to shoot around.

Well we definitely are not married/dating twins then. My wife would sooner do butt stuff than watch an Oilers game.

Then again, considering the way the Oil have been playing this last decade, I can't really blame her.

As does every defenseman in the league. He needs to work on giving himself a lane.
I’m not saying this about the PP only more often then not his shots are blocked and or wide.
One part of his game he needs to work on imho. Other than that his been our best most consistent defenseman.

Agree 100%

And what's more, if Leddy were even half as consistent as Pulock, I think the Isles would be 3rd in the Metro right now.

I have to say Leddy is unbelievably talented but I think the problem is he’s just a bit dumb unfortunately.
He just makes these lazy dumb plays that make you scratch your head.

High risk/High reward sorta player. Though he's been far more high risk these last two years.

I don’t even see the reward aspect of most of his plays lately they’re just dumb😂

He has been better than he was earlier in the season but what are we really saying? He went from a turd to a little less stinky turd.

Prediction: MDC in; Johnston out. JHS stays stranded in Bridgeport.

Isles lose.... 4 - 2
