Yeah he can't really seem to catch a break. He seems like a good dude, hopefully things turn around for him at some point.

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."

Prayers for Travis and his family. He is a good guy.

It's certainly possible.

I'm not saying I agree with it, but the unfortunate reality is that when Ladd is healthy he needs to play because he's got a big contract. They're not gonna pay him $5.5M to sit in the press box. So Lee/Beau/Ladd/Martin have the left side locked down.

- eichiefs9


I never understood this logic. Listen I get it. The guy gets paid an @ss ton of money to play. And honestly...eventually he should. But not right now. Wait for it to break before we fix it. If they lose 2 out of 3 or something they slide him in. Until then...keep playing what's working.

not top 5 though.... here is one of them. http://www.mynhldraft.com/2010-NHL-Mock-Draft/
- niteislander


I usually pay pretty close attention to all of the drafts, and everything leading up to them, once January and/or February hit (becaise thats whent he Isles were more of less completely out of the PO picture). I do remember Nino sky rocketing up the drank rankings once the WJC were finished. From what I remember he was ranked anywhere from #4 to about #11/#12. If i remember correctly most had him going around 7 or so.

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.
- eichiefs9


That blew my mind watching that draft. Fowler was predicted to go around #3. When the Isles had a chance to draft him I thought for SURE he was going to be taken. When they passed on him i was pretty upset. Then once I saw that all the other teams kept passing on him i was absolutely flabbergasted. The rangers taking McIlrath at #10 actually made my night (not only cause he wasn't ranked very high at all, they also passed on Fowler. That made it 10x more asinine they did that).

I remember shocked that Gormley fell pretty far in that draft also if i remember correctly. But I guess it was for the right reasons. He never really amounted to anything.

I get it and I don't disagree at all, but if you're paying someone $5.5M to work for you, it's kinda hard to just pay him to....not work for you.

Not defending it at all, but the reality is owners are going to want guys like Ladd to prove, exhaustively, that they are a detriment to the team before they just piss that money into a hole.

Re-post, for those who wondering about Barzal's ceiling, since "there are a lot of forwards near a pt-per-game".

Last season Barzal had similar numbers to similar-aged Backstrom, but Backstrom had prime Green, prime Ovechkin, and 1.24 pts/game Semin.

#Isles President/GM Lou Lamoriello says no decision has been made yet on where the team will play its playoff games if the team makes the playoffs. Asked when a decision needs to be made, Lou said, "It's a moving target."

Oh he’s a detriment to the team and he’ll be an even bigger detriment if he pushes someone who is and will be playing better than him. That guy half arsing it out there while everyone else is dialed in and working towards something would be a bigger negative than just his lazy, terrible performance. It’s not directed at you before you get all defensive you little sissy boy😂

I have to believe Lou agrees with what I just stated also they won’t sacrifice the season because their past manager signed a player to a terrible contract. He’ll get in I agree but I also believe he’ll be on a real short leash or at least he better be. Literally twitching thinking about him gliding around out there😂

Ladd lover. You can’t wait to see him back in. Maybe they’ll put him on a line with Kuhnackl and Komarov. Our new 2nd pp unit and move Clutterbuck up to the first.

I'm seriously hoping that now the team is a serious competitor he's going to be taking his game up another level. Ladd always used to be a solid player with some grit in his game. If he can turn back the clock a little bit and start putting the puck in the net, I'd love to have him back. Getting him back on pace to when he used to be a 25 goal/25 assist guy would be seriously awesome. Unless he starts playing to where he can get somewhere around those numbers then i don't want him near our team.

Agree, but also as a 3rd line forward, he's got to be defensively responsible especially.
