Seems like the likely scenario. There's more to that article that goes on to discuss Lehner more in-depth, as well as Bobrovsky. Apparently the Isles have not had any discussions with Lehner's camp about a new deal up to this point. I would imagine this is because they're waiting to see what happens with Sorokin before making any long-term financial commitments.

Greiss' deal makes him hard to move, even with one year remaining, so unless Lehner would want to accept a majorly discounted deal (in money and term) to be the backup to Sorokin...I doubt he has a future here.

I didn't know Bob just left the bench and hit the showers after getting pulled in that TB game until I read the article Staple linked to. I'm not sure that's worth rolling $9m worth of dice on for next season if Lehner (provided he keeps up his solid play) is a cheaper option with something already invested in this team.

In the Strome draft most guys LOVED Doug Hamilton. I like Sean Couturier a lot.. he was originally thought to be number 1 over all in that draft and he dropped considerably going into draft. I was praying he would be there for us... big 2 way Center.. etc. We took Strome and he fell to Philly
- niteislander

I also wanted Couturier. Big, strong and scored 96 points 2 years in a row in the Q.

Wonder if there is a team that ever went from worst goals against to best in 1 season

Ducks trade MDZ for Luke Schenn and a 7th rounder. .. if anyone cares.
- niteislander

Other way around.

Also....I don't even think that Del Zotto or Schenn care

I don't think Nino was an off-the-board pick, I think he's developed into a decent 20-25 goal scoring NHLer, and I think Snow was at least as much to blame for that entire debacle as Nino was...mostly for completely closing the lines of communication for no apparent reason.

If Sorokin comes over there's no way they sign Bobrovsky. Sorokin would only be on a 1 year ELC so he's gonna be due some $$$ pretty quickly. Unless Bob is taking $4M over 3 years to come here (he won't) then it's one or the other.

He was a bit of a reach at 5, but it wasn't an insane pick. He was coming off a huge performance at the WJC's and was doing well in the WHL. He was a fast-riser (as was Strome) in his year. I typically don't like those "fast-riser" players because I'm not really sold they all the sudden put it together.

It just further demonstrates how much of an inept jackass Snow is.

I lived for those Mock draft back then.. and No one had him in the top 10.. no one. He was middle to late first round pick on most boards. (McIlrath wasn't on any of them either by the way).

Todd Reirden confirmed plan is for Holtby to start tonight. Not calling up another goalie.

Holtby is good to go.

"In his first season as Isles' coach, Arbour's team finished last in the league for the second year in a row, but gave up 100 fewer goals and earned 56 points, up from 30 the year before. New York Rangers defenceman Brad Park said after the Islanders beat their crosstown rivals for the first time, "They have a system. They look like a hockey team.... "

That's not really a draft ranking though, it's just some guy that tries to guess what teams take what kids.

CSS had him ranked #12

Globe and Mail had him #6

ISS had him #6 also

Unfortunately there's not a ton of rankings still available from a draft 8.5 years ago, that's about all I could find.

Hey guys ! Long time listener, first time caller....I agree about MDC. It doesn't make sense to trade him, especially as an add on piece in a trade. He's finally getting his chance, and he's not blowing it.
- cdn_Isles_fan



I’m not for or against trading MDC. But, I’m curious why it wouldn’t make any sense to trade him
