I wonder if Halak is pissed that they are finally playing defense when he had to face 40+ shots a night.

I would be.

Lately it’s not even that they are wining but how they are winning.
2 shutouts in a row and just stiffling other teams defensively.

Absolutely unbelievable what Trotz has done turning them into a shutdown defensive team, they dominate the neutral zone basically every night

Other teams are useless against it. They can’t figure it out.

#Isles have allowed 3 goals total in the five wins and have held the last three teams to fewer than 20 SOG.

It feels so weird after watching them blow leads for years. Now if they are up 1-0 I feel like they can win instead of waiting for them to blow it.

They are all pros, buying into a great coaches system where everyone knows their job and it truly looks like they are enjoying themselves. Chemistry is an infectious and strong determining factor in sports and this team is really starting to Gel.

Did you see Lehner interviewed by Hoaggie Hogan? He was loving The Coli Crowd

Right! It wasn't a question of if they're gonna blow their lead, it was just a question of how.

Yeah because Weight would still be our coach if Snow was our gm and how would that turn out😂

For someone who thinks he’s so smart he’s about the dumbest (frank) that’s ever been on this site. Snow never did a complete job. He would do one thing ok to good and three things half arsed and that’s why he was a terrible gm. Thanks for the memories and to the walrus BD go eat a bag of dacks.

To much emotion?

I'm honestly curious how much tinkering they do, if any, around the trade deadline. Part of me would love to see them go after the big fish and land Duchene but it's also slightly unsettling to think about making major changes.

Yup, they've developed some nice chemistry in that locker room. Why take a chance on blowing it? Especially with a guy (Duchene) who apparently has not been very popular with his teammates....

I don’t think there’s a wrong move at this point but we definitely have no depth at center.

It's impossible to say with how tight the standings are. They are only 4 points ahead of 8th place and 8 points ahead of 9th. If they go on a small losing streak they'll drop like a stone.

No argument there, I'm curious to see if there are other options out there. Duchene is going to one of the top targets for a lot of teams and he's gonna cost a lot.

I don’t think you can remove anyone from the current roster. That includes Eberle at this point.
I would love Duchene but I don’t think you can give up a boat load of assets unless he is a long term add.
Cpt and I were discussing a sign and trade earlier which typically don’t happen but might get the Sens the best return and the Islanders get their man with a contract in place.
Matt can also get 8 vs 7 years this way where 8 mil is as good as 9 per for 7 years.
It might just make sense here and He is a great fit in my opinion.

Yep there’s a definite argument for that. But If you can get Duchene signed without giving up both wahlstrom and Dobson I think you have to do it. We have no up and coming centers save for Otto and he’s far from a lock. We need some depth.
