For many years, they relied way too heavily on 91. I just think he's guilty of trying to do too much. Im with you.....i'll take him and his binder anyday. Greiss on the other hand.....
- kindlyrick

Yeah after all of those nice things I said about greiss I'm fine with him being gone

Lets just hope they dont make him part of management like some other career back up we know.

We can agree to disagree, but like I said, if 91 leaves, the isles are gonna feel it. He's not so easily replaced. Its a fact that if he walks you're losing north of 80 pts a year, a coupla GWG's, and one of the best centers below the hash marks. Let me also add that it was 91 who single handily carried the isles on his back and won them their first playoff round since 1993. I dont think that's replaced by Bozak and JVR, with or without Lou and Barry.

Of course I don't think anybody is disputing that.

Well, no.......some on here legitimately believe that even if he leaves, with Trotz and Lou the isles will be great. I think its going to take a few years for that to happen. This last draft was incredible, and the isles really got lucky being able to scoop who they did.

Id love to see a statistic that shows the isles record with JT in the lineup, vs without. Im sure its a landslide...
- kindlyrick


Obviously but I'm pretty sure they would bring in some decent talent to replace him. So its not really I fair measurement using just win loss with and without him

Who said the Isles would be great with or without JT next year?

I pushed back about it taking a few years for the Isles to make the playoffs without JT.

I only give de Haan a two year deal tops. One big hit and his shoulder could fall apart again.

Give it a rest nobody is saying that. What is being said is if JT walks and the isles can make some moves and replace him with a couple of solid players it wouldn't be all doom and gloom and they would still have a pretty solid core moving forward

Its different though. For ex. YOu can bring in two 40 pts guys, and say yeah here's your 80 pts. But, its not just the pts.....its when they were scored. Tying a game up, or even drawing penalties, cause guys are so hard on 91 they clutch and grab. Obviously there are a lot of factors here, and i prefer he signs here. My fear is that he's very similar to Ryan Smyth.......quiet Canadian who doesn't fit well in NY. If he does leave, the sun will rise tomorrow.....its just gonna suck for a few years, until this years class is ready to jump in.

James Mirtle blocked me on twitter for sending that No One Cares gif to the stupid Athletic story about why Tavares should want play in Canada that I've seen retweeted like 5,000 times

Which is basically another re build. Not tear down from scratch rebuild......but in the sense that the isles wont sniff the cup for min 3 years.
