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?

No perfect

Snow never took them to the next set 100%. If he’s so great why is he a gopher in the Islanders organization instead of a GM let alone an assistant some where else.
I heard he makes a mean cup of coffee.

There are going to be plenty rental guys to look at imho. Obvi Duchene and Stone if not signed are the bug names.
I don’t see The BJ trading Panarin if there still in it.

- nyisles7

Stone is a lunatic he actually wants to resign with them.

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.

- nyisles7

It's definitely extremely rare, but you can't rule it out if OTT thinks it'll help maximize their return. I'm curious as to what the price tag is. He's having a hell of a season and I'm sure it won't be cheap.

Wahlstrom, 2019 first, Aho, and have to throw a third in because we’re on hockeybuzz.

- nyisles7

I doubt they trade Panarin and I am willing to basically guarantee that, if they do trade him, it's not going to be to a team they're fighting for the top of their division with.

I could see the Isles only going the depth rental route, too. Not advocating for or against it, but it wouldn't surprise me.

That's a hefty price. I would hope they don't cough that up for an unsigned Duchene...that'd be a tough pill to swallow if he ended up walking.

That was for a signed Duchene. I think it’s a realistic offer and they’d take it.

Their thread has been comic relief for the last week. Nice place to stop in if you’re having a bad day.

I mean Ottawa gave up a ton for Duchene and trading him at the deadline to a team I don’t see them getting that much back. A first and a prospect Don’t forget their 1st rounder this year goes to the Lanche for the Duchene deal. It makes sense for both teams if they can get a Sign and trade.

I think Lou will add depth. The POs are a grind and there are injuries to consider as well.
I mentioned Kunitz earlier. A Vet who’s won it. Picks his game up in the POs a Lou type guy and he probs cost you a third rounder?

That's funny. At first I thought I heard the same thing. Then I realized there were competing chants that sounded to me like: "Barry Trotz" and "JT sucks"....

Kunitz may be over the hill. He's 39 years old with one goal and 2 assists........and he's -8 on the season. I know he's got plenty of playoff experience, but I hope there are better alternatives.

Edit: Plus he's a LW, not a C which is the Isles' need.

So was Kamorov and Fili
He can play either wing. Good on the PP and gives you depth.
I know the islanders would love Duchene however Chiefs and I were discussing depth moves and not the big moves on the top guys.
Go back to shuffleboard with the rest of the old geezers in Fl.

I don't think he'd even cost that much. More like a really late pick. He's pretty much teetering on not being an NHL player at this point. I get the thought but I think they'd be a few years late on him.

Maybe someone like Richard Panik. Guys like Michael Ferland and Ryan Dzingel would be fantastic additions, but won't be cheap.

edit: If MIN starts to slip, Eric Staal would be a really good option

#Isles have allowed one goal or fewer 18 times this season, including the last five games and have kept opponents under 20 shots in three straight games.

This is insane: last year in 82 games the #isles allowed 1 or fewer goals 8 times and less than 20 shots ONCE.
