Not me. I was expecting them to miss the playoffs this year, but didn't think they would be this terrible

I think that is Hall's absence. I figured they would be just under the wildcard, not dog poop.

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


Couturier would have been a nice pick. Big 2 two center is always useful. Hamilton would have been another good pick.

I just remember who we all wanted before each draft on these HB boards. Strome was never mentioned by any of us... same with Nino. Ironic that we all would have done a better job drafting early first round picks than the Isles did.... I will give them some credit for 2008 b/c most wanted Filatov... who was a bust. then when we moved down we wanted Luke Schenn... neither were great and we moved down twice getting extra picks and then took Bailey and Hamonic with one of those extra picks.
- niteislander


I thought I remember the knock on Fowler was he was not strong enough? 2008 was a nice draft but Garth sure had his misses as well over the years.

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.
- eichiefs9


Would be nuts to sign Bob if Sorokin comes over. Rather try to work something out with Robin.

Don't get me wrong, Garth blows dog ass at pretty much everything hockey-related...but it's tough to get on him for passing on guys that a whole bunch of teams let fall through. Couturier, Fowler, etc... were all passed up by a lot of teams, not just the Isles.

This is true and is why I usually do not get on GM's in terms of drafting 18 year old's. Trades and FA signings are another thing.

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

I expected improvement this year just not on this same level.

True but he can't be the reason for all their defensive problems. Hell we got a guy with one eye, who skates like he is in syrup

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


I'm not trading MDC for a Cal type player and not saying Lou will. If some team has to have MDC to give a piece the Isles really need then fine. I'm just not trading MDC just to trade him for Ladd.

GM had a Garth Snow type offseason and figured they did not need much.

I’m not suggesting trading MDC for a cal type player or as a throw in piece. But, to suggest trading him doesn’t make sense.....i wanna know why.

- kindlyrick


Understood. I have to think Isles fans are scared to trade young players from past experiences. I know Lou is not Garth. MDC has talent and he is under control and in a Cap world that's important. You still have to listen to offers though.

- eichiefs9


My original point was leading up to the draft these are the guys we talked about... Nino and Strome were never mentioned. once we picked them we were all excited about them and hoped they would be super stars.. but none of us expected those picks. Actually the only time Garth ever pick who we wanted to Pajama boy...

Last year Lou in his first shot took Whalstrom when he fell to them... That was who I was hoping they would get (one of the 3 american kids I liked... other 2 were gone).

Whatever happened to XX .. he was on the boards all the time back then.. same with SCLI.

- ses111

I think he had a knee injury the year before the draft so did not play a lot going into draft. Might be thinking of someone else...but I think it was him.

Travis Hamonic and his wife had to rush their eight-month old daughter Charlie to the Alberta Children's Hospital on Sunday. "She's been really sick. It's been a hard week for my wife and I and our entire family...as a Dad it brings tears to your eyes for different reasons."
