Haha I was just messin with ya

I didn't mean it. Hug it out?

Edit: BTW...how has Darnell Nurse been doing? I remember thinking he had massive potential when you guys drafted him. I believe you took him 8th overall a few years back? I kind of stopped paying attention to him. Has he been any good as of late?

- Dedshark


Lets.

Nurse has been good. Think of him as a slightly less offensively gifted Leddy (circa 15/16), who delights in punching peoples faces to mush.

Not that I want anything to do with the guy...but I feel like Kovy is the kind of guy that...when your team sucks...He just stops giving a poop. If he were to get traded to a contending team and he's placed in the top 6... he's going to "suddenly emerge as an elite sniper" again.
- Dedshark

At 35 years old, I think he's too old and too slow for today's NHL.

No thinking required. It's happening.

Could you imagine the backlash if Lee were to be able to walk into Free Agency after he became captain?

It would be SO Islander.

Money makes people forget unfortunately. However with the demons that Robin has fought and while here staying clean and turning his life around you have to think that it's good for him to stay here. Moving to another City / Team he might find himself tempted to to the dark side.

I would think once the PO picture is clearer Lou will be finalizing contracts with the FA's they see as being long term pieces of the team.

Lee, Nelson and Lehner I think get done. Eberly could stay if he isn't looking for a totally unrealistic deal. My opinion of course.

Not no thank you but no Phucking Thank You!

He has totally sucked in LA and once the games get more physical and tighter checking come the PO run, he will be even worse in mho.

He should have stayed in the free wheeling KHL.

you're probably right. I just think in the right scenario he might be able to turn it on. He's got wayyy too much talent to be completely fried at the age of 35

Gotcha Dedshark. It's nice to think about possible Isles pickups though instead of talk of tearing things down.

Even then I'd be more than a little pissed. I'd get over it of course, but I'd still be pissed.

I would take a rental on Simons. Has skill and plays with a gritty edge. That is if we are in the pO mix.

Big part of me believes that Lou will stand pat with what he has and not spend any assets on anyone. We have a ton of money coming off the books in the next couple years. The thing with Lou is though he’s kind of unpredictable so my prediction is he may make a trade or he may not. 😉

Totally agree. One of the guys I would like to see extended is Robin Lehner, since there's no way to know when goalie help will arrive through the pipeline.
- JohnScammo

Extend him and greiss has 1 or 2 more years so he can be dealt if sorokin comes over

- nyisles7


Lehner went through some tough interviews this past offseason if I remember right from his Athletic article. People getting really aggressive with him and stuff like that. I think he'll remember that and the Isles will have the inside track with him, meaning I think he'd sign with them for the lower end of his window, but, yeah, it depends on what his window will be.

I'd like to upgrade either Bailey or Eberle on RW. I'd probably rather keep Eberle over Bailey since Eberle is the better goal scorer of the two, but Bailey's under contract and Eberle's not, so...

- Upstate_isles


Sounds easy. What if Lehner wants a 5 year deal?

Sorokin even if he does come over. How he going to do in the NHL?
